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.

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.

There are yurts and information stations…

Los Gatos Creek Park

Getting there: Easy enough. I stopped by this park on the way to LA to stretch my legs and check it out. It's about 30 min off the I5 and not worth your time. The website said that it's $5 to park, but I didn't pay. Campsites: The campsites are closed as far as I know. However, even if they were…
