Not our favorite!

We pulled in to spend the night on our way to Death Valley. We ended up leaving and camping down the road at Hanning Flat. Was a big open dirt area with not much more than some scrub grass. Didn’t seem like a lot of privacy or character.

Quiet, solitude and…..cows!

We stopped here on our way to Death Valley and ended up staying for several days because we love it so much! There’s another dispersed site a few miles away (Stine Cove) and we found this one to be much more pleasant. The two are actually connected by dirt roads. Our site was shaded and had a fire…

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,…

Campground on the river

A nice secluded campground up the river from kern’s more populated sites, in the heart of the Sequoia National Forest. First come first serve style camp site, showed up at 5 pm on a last minute late night camping trip and arrived to an empty campground.

1st time…we’ll be back!

We pulled in after 7pm and had to call the after-hours line. We got in and set up camp. Nice wide driveways no issues for turning the rv around and parking. Very clean and nice park. The staff came to us after 10pm because we had music on and asked to turn it off so I just turned it down very low.…

Our favorite campground in California

Our family has been going to Camp James for over 10 years, and it's easily our favorite campground in California. The campsites are clean, shaded by trees, and it's right on the riverfront. During the high season, it's fun to watch kayakers and whitewater rafters screaming down the rapids. But our…

Peaceful days, party nights

A really nice drive along the river takes you right to this campsite.

Some parts of the campground were very quiet, some parts were busier. If your site is close enough to the water, you’ll hear frogs and critters at night which I loved.

Close to lots of recreation and activities places to…

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.

YES - Reserved this campsite ASAP!

I really loved this campsite. It's not too big and you get a lot of privacy and shade with the trees. There are bathrooms and a water spigot throughout the site which makes things a lot easier!

There is direct access to the river. We camped right at the riverfront so it was nice to wake up,…
