Very close to beautiful lake

We rented an RV and had it delivered to the campsite and set up; all sites have electric hookups and water spigots nearby, but one loop has full RV hookups at each spot. We were very close to the lake, just a short walk, and it's beautiful. Super clear, relaxing sounds, easy trails all along. It…

Premium California Camping

The name says it all. This campsite was a majestic experience for being surrounded by huge pines and sunsets you have to experience- photos do them no justice. Campers were very respectful and nighttime brought a soothing silence with very little noise and partying. Everyone gathers to see the…

Mountain top camping with lake view

Camped three nights during the week in early May 2021 in a 24-foot travel trailer.  Site 007 was shaded with lake view, but narrow and barely long enough for our trailer.  Electric, water and sewer, all for Federal Golden-pass rate of $15!  Campground was mostly empty.  Bathrooms were ok: not…

Friendly host, dusty site

Advertised at $35 on The Dyrt, it was $63 with a discount. Closest bath house was mediocre, and no WiFi! Nice registration person offered her personal hotspot. As my 5th rv camping experience, I’m learning what to ask for up front.

Quiet & Nice Camping Site

This camping site is a nice free area super close to the Giants Trail entrance (5 minute drive). As you head in you go thru a little dirt road and at the end you see an opening for this site. There is one site located right at the start of the access road but with no views. The main area is cleared…

Hard to get reservations

Its qlmost impossible to get a spot here, but we got lucky on a Thursday early in the season. It was amazing! There were deer and marmots that were friendly (but not camp beggers) and trees the perfect distance for hammock sleeping.

Beautiful !

The campgrounds are beautiful and well maintained! The bathrooms are the cleanest I’ve ever seen at a campground and down by the lake is beautiful! Highly recommend!

Soo peaceful and very central

We really had no clue which campgrounds to choose on our Kings Canyon and Sequoia trip so this was a random choice! It seemed like popular crowded sites were all booked out. So I chose this one because it has a nice stream nearby, it's so nice to camp near water. It was sparsely crowded, very…

  • Short little drive around the campground

Amazing getaway

Sentinel was the only campground available for a visit to Kings Canyon and Sequoia. Be prepared for a LONG drive to get anywhere.

The campsite was amazing!!! You are nestled by the river and under beautiful big trees. The site was spacious with a picnic table, fire pit and bear box.

Private and a hidden beauty

My wife and I love this location and definitely will come back. There was only one other camper and they were 50 yards away. Relaxing creek runs through the campsite, allowing access to a fresh water source. On the other side of the creek there is a gorgeous clearing that opens up to a blue sky…

Not private but wonderful central location

Perfectly situated near all the best trailheads. No privacy at this campground. Lots of loud families. Walking distance to the store with firewood and ice. Creek runs through it and lots of big trees nearby.
