Convenient location as nothing else was around but literally in the middle of no where. Big spacious site for class A pulling a trailer but the hookups were too spread apart that we had to back up in the morning to release black tank. The roads were quite uneven and tight when exiting in the…

Pretty nice RV park

Pretty standard park here. Very nice spots with plenty of space. 30 and 50 amp hookups with water and sewage. It gets five stars because we were able to reserve a spot after hours. This park is next door to a gas station as well so you can fuel up as you leave.

Parking lot, but clean

This campground is basically a parking lot, with very few shaded areas. There are some trees that offer shade, but only a few. It has full hook up. It has level, gravel sites. The office staff is kind. The bathrooms are impeccably clean. Really nice showers. Nice pool. Far enough off of route 5…

Almond Tree oasis

Great stop off if you are heading in San Francisco. Sites are level, just wide enough for Rv with slides and long enough if you are towing a car. Not many shade trees. I got lucky and pick spot 44 which is right across from the pool and showers and best of all a huge shade tree.

Nice meadow and close to sequoia Trees

It was a long windy drive up to the summit there’s a swim hole along the South Fork Tule River at the base of the mountain towards the lake in Porterville that has natural rock slides. The campsite has a huge meadow in the middle and beautiful views of trees. On the opposite side of the mountain…

Beautiful and Remote

We loved our stay at this campground. It was beautiful, quite and the camp host was incredibly kind. My only complaint is that we were very far from any good hikes. My partner and I ended up driving 3hours to Sequoia NP so we could get a good one in. However, if you want a nice, lazy weekend in the…

Great location, good spots

This is a great location halfway between northern and southern California along I5. Clean and not too busy so we were nicely spaced out.

It being in the middle of nowhere, there is nothing to walk or bike to, but the town is about 10 miles inland.

A true oasis

My job in agriculture brought me to the area to visit farms nearby. I was glad to find the Almond Tree, which turned out to be a perfect base camp for the week. It is truly a little oasis in a vast agricultural landscape without many lodging options or attractions. And my Dyrt PRO membership…

Great Campsite

Very nice campsite with views of meadow. Lots of trees allow for many shaded sites. Most sites allow for privacy. Can get loud at night but mostly a chill campsite. Campfires allowed during time of visit which was great! Freeman Creek Trailhead nearby, hike ~8mi RT and see George Bush Sequoia.

Incredible on all accounts!

The fields and trails that are near this campground are phenomenal. It's a 5.2 mile hike down to the Freeman Creek Giant Sequoia Grove. The bathrooms are not maintained outside of the season and watch out for black widows in the corners of the bathrooms.

There are yurts and information stations…

It was ok!

Passing through for a night with discount was $32. Pull through full hookup gravel sites that are very tight and couldn’t put slide out as there was car parked in way. Dog park isn’t fenced off and running out of bags. Not many trees for shade and very close to noisy truck stop. Pool closed also.…
