Medium sized campground that has smaller, tight sites. Located directly off the main access road to Sequoia National Park, making it very loud and popular. RV’s and big campers with lights and generators. Fine if your passing through or can’t find other accommodations, but I wouldn’t spend significant time there. There is a swimming hole with ancient petroglyphs and acorn grinding holes right across the street.
I stayed here at the Potwisha camp area for three days on a trip to view the area. The campgrounds were clean, close to the entrance, and quite full. The fee for overnight stay was normal and everything needed was close to each individual location. The staff here were spirited and helpful throughout my stay; I would definitely come back anytime!
It was a great campground but I have been ruined by free campgrounds so when I do have to pay I am disappointed if there aren't showers. Also it was a little far away from the main section of the park (where we wanted to be) but it was the only campground available.
That being said, the campground was pretty sweet. We backed out truck in and slept in the bed, but there are plenty of rv and tent sites around. We stayed at site 12 for two nights and on our last morning we woke up to see a bobcat snoozing in the sun. We also lucked out and came across a mama bear and two cubs near Moro Rock which was incredible!!!
Next time I would try to reserve a campground up higher, but I wouldn't think twice about staying here again if they were full.
Honestly, this was all just incredible. The campground itself was awesome. Far away from neighbors to feel privacy and great hikes in every direction that go up in the mountains. A lot of mule deer very close by as well. Beautiful rivers and waterfalls to be seen and the wildlife is so vibrant.
