Great spot.

Took a bit to find as the marker on this map isn’t where the entry is. Go past it and take a left on Sierra way, follow to Stine Cove. Toilets and trash at entrance. The dam is being rebuilt so the water is real low. Easy to drive along the beach until nobody else is around. Great views, sunsets,…

Huge campsites

50 huge campsites with lots of trees for shade. Many river side sites. No hook ups, but there is a dump station and several water spigots. Been coming here for years. Only a few miles to town. A short walk to lake Ming and Kern River golf course

The drive is wild at night…

But site 3 will steal your heart forever. It’s like having your own personal creek in the middle of nowhere! Simply serene and just what we needed!! We woke in the morning to what wr think we’re hyenas (lmao) crazy. Loved it here, but it was soooooo hot!!! Also, no cell service, or fires allowed at…

Not recommended for RVs!

This is a nice clean campground right on the Kern River. However, the website says several spots are good for a 30-foot RV. I do not recommend anything bigger than 24 feet or so. The road through the campground is very narrow, and lined with large boulders. Some of the turns are very tight. For…

Pulled in late. We couldn’t see much but the stars were beautiful. It was by the road but not to many cars came by. In the morning we saw the lake and it was so pretty with the sun gleaming off of the water. The bathrooms were gross in both the boys and the girls. There was a pit toilet though.…

So close to Trail of 100 Giants!

Nice quiet boondocking area downhill off the road. It’s all dust roads so AWD would be best, but we did make it in our van. Slid backwards down the hill kicking up dust a couple of times trying to get out the next day, but we made it! Would have been another story if it had rained. Regardless they…

Quiet and comfortable

Parked next to the road (didn’t want to mess with any critters) and barely noticed any road the whole night. Stayed from 5 until around 7 the next day.

STOKED to Find This Spot

On my way into Sequoia NF I was so excited to see Hanning Flats dispersed camping area. My pup and I stayed for three nights and didn’t see another person or vehicle the whole time. So peaceful, quiet, sunny, green. My dog did get lots of ticks and we had a mouse find its way into the van but I…

Great spot in the Sequoia Forest

It’s a really nice spot. The meadow is nice but you need to hike in. We saw two bears every night so take precaution. They were Cubs, they’re not scared of you but also won’t mess with you if you lock up all your food.

Good location - Needs updates

At first we were a bit disappointed but overall it turned out to be a good location for going to the Trail of 100 Giants and the Kern River. The WiFi didn’t work and the bathroom only had two showers. It needs to be updated but it was clean and the people were nice.

Primitive & Convenient

We used this as an overnight on the way from Joshua Tree to Seqoia when we couldn't find a spot at the Walker Pass Campground up the road. It was right next to the road, so not exactly quiet, but we were alone and got to hit the road nice and early. Great for what we needed. Pretty dark skies if…

Nice getaway

The campsite is really nice if you looking to get away from big crowds. You have to get there early if you want to get a shaded site. Working toilets were a plus and you have room to work with when setting up your gear. The lake or river you do need to drive too which is the only negative remark I…

Beautiful Campgrounds

Stayed for July 4 2021 at site 7. The campsites are close to each other and is the only reason I did not mark this as 5 stars. 1, 2, 3 and 4 are in the first section/small loop and are up a slight hill and have a smaller bathroom. 5 and 6 are in the middle and 5 is right in front of the second…

Best Campground (watch for the bear)

We loved being cool in the shade. Nearby to hiking and sequoia trees. Plenty of space between sites and not many people there. Be mindful as there is a bear that likes to dumpster dive. Keep your trash secure and don’t poke it!
