Really nice get away. Less crowded than sequoia NP. Spent the day at the lake nice fishing went in the summer and it was really warm the whole time. Sites were clean and drive in. Tables, fire pit and bear canisters on site
This is a great campground. The sites are easy to get into and park. You usually have a lot of room to yourself. There are lots of trees for shade at camp. The lake is (generally) a short walk from camp. And you can even hike down the lake for 1/2 mile to the Hume Lake Christian Camp, where they have a visitor center, kayaks for rent, and even a general store with lots of food and supply options.
This is one of my favorite car camping sites, and I'd recommend it to everyone.
the lake is beautiful and there is a Christian campground across the lake that has a rental place for paddle boarding canoeing and more. there is also a convenience store near the rental store. the walk from camp to the lake is not far and the Christian camp ground is not loud or disruptive at all. just careful there are bear sitings here.
Dogs barks, kids screaming and bears a roaming. Not my cup of tea, but it was only for 1 night. I don’t think I slept a wink while staying here. I don’t mind talking but there was barking and yelling until early in the morning. Campsites without any privacy.
Just a quick 40 minutes from our previous night at Stony Creek, the site is lower elevation and a good bit warmer which was nice. The campground itself is fairly small but spacing between sites is pretty far so liked that a lot. The area surrounding the site has been hit hard with trees being cut down so expect it to look like a lumber site. I'm sure there was a reason they were cut down. The plus to that though is it's free wood for the taking and the camp host said help yourself so campfire jackpot. It's just a 20 minute walk to the lake but we drove down with the paddle boards and took them out. The lake is gorgeous!! Almost nobody on it and relatively warm and clear. Perfect for paddle boards or kayak or canoe. Got to paddle surrounded by a snow capped peak off in the horizon. Pretty neat. The campground itself is pretty standard but if you're there for the lake it's a great one or two nighter.
Great campsites right on the water! The lake is pretty small but there is a lot of sandy beach access right near the campsites. Fishing has been pretty good every time I go here. It is only about a 30 minute drive up to the Kings Canyon National Park Visitor Center and all of the amenities offered in Grant Grove, including the General Grant Tree. Great spot overall, definitely feels like a national park.
