Pretty Site!

First time to Sequoia/Kings Canyon and was offered this site on recreation.gov. Although this site was VERY far from the parks, it was pretty and remote. The Site Host Vicky was kind and gave us a good tip on swimming behind the Stoney creek store. Only camp here if you love driving, don’t mind a…

Lovely, quiet Campground!

Great site! Spacious and clean, with a pretty cool creek that runs along the campground. My kids loved it! My only recommendation would be regular bathroom with a shower and to fill in the pot holes.

It’s a 4 because ......

The only reason it’s not a five is because we could not have campfires. I understand this is not the fault of camp hosts, but still a little disappointed. However, lesson learned to look at website prior to arriving. There were also tons of flies until it got darkish.

Campsite 13 is our favorite…

About This Campground

Located in the Giant Sequoia National Monument at 4,800 feet in elevation, this facility is nestled among ponderosa pine, cedar, Sequoia and other conifers. This Forest Service campground is part of the Hume Lake Ranger District in Sequoia National Forest. It is located approximately 80 miles northeast of Fresno, CA, near Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Recreation

Opportunities abound in this beautiful forest setting for hiking, biking and off-road exploring outside of the wilderness area. Trails lead into the Redwood Mountain/Whitaker forest grove of Giant Sequoias.

Facilities

Eshom Campground is a developed facility with 23 multi-family sites. The campground has two sections, east and west. Vault toilets are provided.

The west section is comprised of two loops, while the east section has a spur ending in a loop. In the west section, campsites 2 through 5 are best suited for slide-ins and tents; potable water spigots are available throughout the loops. Access to Eshom Creek can be found off the west section, where an old road is open to foot traffic only and leads to the creek.

The east section is more rustic. Sites have irregular and informal parking aprons, stone fire rings and no grills. The facility amenities are favorable for a family destination.

Natural Features

The Sequoia's landscape is as spectacular as its trees. Soaring granite monoliths, glacier-torn canyons, roaring whitewater and more await discovery at the Sierra Nevada's southern end.

The Sierra Nevada Mountains support populations of black bears, mule deer, and a variety of squirrels and other small mammals. Many bird species can also be seen.

Eshom Creek runs adjacent to the campground, and many of the sites border the water.

Nearby Attractions

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are located 25 miles from the campground using Hwy 245, offering more chances to explore the natural beauty of the area.
