Crowded and super noisy

This campsite is very close to the Sequoia foothill visitor center which is nice but it also means it’s at a much lower elevation than the rest of the park. It is HOT in the summer and it’s not super shaded. This campsite is really crowded. There were tons of very large noisy groups so if you are…

Perfect in march

This is a great spot in March April and may 

But gets pretty hot in the summer.

Plenty of scenery and hiking.

Trailhead to waterfall hike starts in the campground.

Close to giant trees and hikes.

Saw my first wild bear! Slowed down to take a photo and a car flying down the road almost hit it but it scampered away unscathed. You can walk across the street to the river. There’s a cool bridge and a rocks to climb on. The site was smallish. Nice bathrooms. Even a pay phone.
