Always closed

Like most NPS and forest campgrounds lately, you drive all this way and run into orange ROAD CLOSED signs. Come on guys why is every campground in USA closed lately.

Anyway, although Dyrt doesn’t show it (adding it now), if you keep driving less than a mile over the next bridge you’ll find some great dispursed campsites along the river and both sides of road that have pits, access, etc. thank goodness we kept driving a bit to find dispursed after the hour windy road trek to get here.

Furry Friends

This campground is pretty secluded along Shaver Lake. However, the spaces are extremely close together. We camped on a Tuesday and there was only one other camper so we were able to stay across the lot from them. There is a LOT of wildlife around here so you can expect to hear tons of raccoons, skunks, birds, and cows throughout your stay. A skunk sprayed near our camp and we smelled it most of the night. There is a bathroom at the campsite but it was pretty disgusting and was filled with trash. You have to cross over quite a few cattle grates and through many patches of single road so proceed with caution. There are fire rings and during our stay, campfires were allowed.

Great river side camping

Great little campground right next to King's River in Sierra National Forest. Twisty paved road wraps around Pine Flat Reservoir to get to the campground. Picnic tables, fire rings, vault toilets, and occasionally... cows wander through. The main loop has several sites and there's a section off to the right with much more secluded sites among the trees. Popular raft take out spot from the river. There's a small beach just past a paved cul-de-sac. The river is cold and moving  quickly, the sounds of the rushing water reach the campground and make for easy sleeping. Love this place.

Another nice river spot

Stayed here three nights Full moon November 2020 Being the last night There was a few other campers But plenty of space to be away from other camps Not much trail hiking to be had Campground just off fairly busy road No verizon cell service at campground 1 mile west of the campground,by the electrical station,there is spotty Verizon signal You can take a short climb up a service road Across from the entrance to the electrical station. It is very steep Go around a curve to the left Then as you are going around a curve to the right There is a road that goes to a power pole I got 3 bars Verizon 4g at this spot.

The service road goes up the mountain to a water tank Very steep strenuous hike Its about 0.9 miles and elevation change of 750 feet

Nice place to relax

Stayed here 3 nights at the end of November 2020 Camp ground had a few campers in it. Not really any trail hiking to be had. Mostly just a river-fishing A good bit of traffic comes up and down the road. No verizon cell service at campground. If you like steep incline hikes One can hike up a service road and get 3 bars Verizon 4g lte The service road is across from the electrical station, west of the campground Go up and around a curve to the right Then as you go around a curve to the left A road will go left to a power line Best signal here Spotty signal all the way to the water tank. Its about .9 miles and 750 elevation climb To the water tank

Amazing river view camping

We stayed at campsite 12 out of 25. They have group campsites and single campsites which is great and it Is also free and you can stay for up to 14 days. Each came with a picnic table (two if a group) and a fire ring. There are vault toilets that weren’t the worst one I’ve been too. You can see the Kings River and hear it really well. It is a beautiful canyon not far from Pine Flat Lake. It is family friendly and the ground is pretty comfortable to have a tent on. Amazing views of the stars at night, really beautiful weather during the day and night. It might get pretty hot though during the summer months because it’s only at around 1000ft in elevation. Its close to so many creeks too. If you like going up dirt roads and seeing bears or amazing views I definitely would recommend coming here. At night along with seeing the stars and hearing the river, you can also hear frogs, and there is not very many mosquitoes.
