Sites are located along California Creek. Good shade provided by pine and fir trees. Located near Bull Buck Trail. Parking Lot; restroom; historical sites; nature trails.
Beyond the campsite there are various giant sequoia trees that you can visit. We advise everyone to stay on the trail, and to stay behind the fences guarding the trees preserving their beauty for the future generations. This summer we are expecting a large number of visitors so please plan for delays, thank you.
This small and quiet campground is tucked away in the Nelder Grove area. It's a little tricky to find in the guise of night if you haven't been there - go past Nelder Grove area, turn right at the fork, turn left to get to camp sites. It's by a stream and there are a handful of Giant Sequoias that have seen better days.
Typical campsite other than the stunning and peaceful nature: fire pits and picnic tables.
There are great trails in the area with even more (living) Giant Sequoias.
This a great campsite with a creek the kids can play in. The trail to Bull Buck is for all ages. This tree is a must see and a local wedding venue!
Great location which isn't as heavily used as you'd think. Being so close to the Bull Buck trail. No water, so you'll need to make sure and bring in what you'll need. No Reservation, first come first serve but not a problem usually. Also, does have vault toilets, so at least no digging needed…. Right by the entrance to Yosemite and we had the 7 sites all to ourselves. Not sure why more people don't stop when you have great access to some amazing trails with some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world!
Nice flat sites with great coverage and picnic tables and fire rings.
