Simple, Convenient & Serene

I've been camping at Fairview Campground on the Kern for over 15 years and look forward to it every year.   The prices are fair, it's right on the river and is the perfect starting point for floating.  It is also directly next to McNally's restaurant, which has been such a blessing after some long…

Great Swimming Hole

This campground is sort if basic. It is very close to town as its the first campground in the Sequoia Park. The swimming hole is unmatched, complete with rope swing. Very accessible and even bear sightings. Trails and lots of shade.

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…

Basic camping with close supplies

Overall, love the campiste and yes its true there isnt much in regards to having trees or a scenic view. However, we were able to camp so close to the river and wasn't bad in regards to pulling you in or anything. Must admit i loved it and so did my fiance. We wanted the camping 🏕 experience but…

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…

Decent Campground, Close to Sequoia NP

We stayed at Sequoia RV Ranch this past weekend with high expectations, based on the stellar reviews.  The campground is fine, but not five stars.  As others have noted, this campground is close to the entrance of Sequoia NP and close to the town of Three Rivers which has a few restaurants and…

Crowded and super noisy

This campsite is very close to the Sequoia foothill visitor center which is nice but it also means it’s at a much lower elevation than the rest of the park. It is HOT in the summer and it’s not super shaded. This campsite is really crowded. There were tons of very large noisy groups so if you are…

  • Site 7 - It is on the edge of the campground. There’s a hill to the east so you get shade until about 10am and then you get roasted the rest of the day.

Giving a 5 for the staff and convenience

This was a quick stop for us. We got here around 11pm and left at 9am after getting our trailer and family loaded therefore I'm not accurately able to rate the rv park itself as we didn't use or see much. The staff was very nice over the phone and we let them know we'd be coming in after hours.…

Decent Spot to Camp on your way into the Sequioas National Park

There’s a river all the kids love to play in. Water moves slowly but it’s not necessarily ‘clean’ although none of the kids mind. Pool is a little murky but full of people. There’s a resident teenage bear named Horse that comes around and they also warn you about snakes. We had a few issues with…

Perfect summer spot

We came again. This time we reserved spot #21 and it was perfect for us. Very close to the river and surrounded by trees, making it very convenient for camping accessories and games. Campfires are still not allowed because of the season and campfires are such a highlight during camping but we still…

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.…
