SO MANY BONUS ACTIVITIES!!

BEACH CAMPING!! It is awesome! Bring ear plugs because it is a popular campground. 

The store has everything you might need while out camping and it is literally across the street from a beautiful beach! 

This is a LARGE campground and can accommodate all types of campers. There are even tiny houses and cabins for those less willing to lose the comforts of home. 

The RV sites are right on top of each other in the entrance but they open up in the back field(we weren’t able to get back in there since we were just tent campers). 

They are high on security here. I LOVED the list of activities that were happening around the area. It really helped you get involved with the local ecology. 

There is a big gazebo for fish cleaning. Laundry room and propane for sale.

Boating

Great place to wakeboard, jet ski, fish, and BBQ.

All Alone!

I really enjoyed this spot. We were the only ones there so we had everything to ourselves. There is a ranger on site that has firewood for sale but he also informs you that you can use any wood that is on the ground. Too many trees to count surround you and create a shady spot to hang. There are trails nearby including one that takes you to Chilkoot Creek where there is a natural showering spot.

Very nice place

Nice break from those dusty dirty camp grounds. Paved spots with full hookups. Patio & grass area kinda small but the pool area is very nice. Surrounded by a pond. Cable & wifi. Decent laundry room. Perfect place if you're a golfer. We stayed here multiple nights. My kids loved the pool. Ants were a bit of a problem but I'd definitely stay here again.

Perfect for tent camping with a dog

There are better spots than some at this campground, but get in early and pitch your tent.  We settled in a far corner and it was perfect.  Kept our dog on a tether and the ranger was pleasant and very helpful.  I'd give it six stars if possible!

Beach camping, friendly staff, awesome secluded tent sites.

I was lucky enough to spend four nights here last winter. It was breezy and rained on and off. The walk in sites are secluded and this park has all the amenities including free showers. Dog friendly. I hear it gets very busy in the summertime. There are a few year round residents, and it’s fun to stroll through the RV section of the park, but also fun to go back into the trees and get away from it all.

Large campground, great amenities, lots of trees

Fairly big campground, with some spots having a good amount of privacy in a forest. Our site (#162) was large enough, although not very level. The sewer connection was almost level with our dump pipe, so it made dumping a challenge. The "Downtown" area, which is the center of the campground, has spots for members only, but they're very close together. Maybe good for group get-togethers where you are 10' from your neighbor. Amenities include a pool, day room with tons of things to do, a separate day room for kids, a large fire pit, showers, store at the office, horseshoe and 2 shuffleboard courts. While we were there, they played movies at sunset next to the pool. Close to Yosemite, the Sugarpine railroad and a decent-sized town. Temps were in the 80's. Overall a very nicely maintained place to stay. Staff seemed a bit aloof, but maybe they were all just busy. It's a large place. We actually loved the interaction with the staff at 49er RV Park, which was a lot smaller.

Perfect Family Campground

Walking Distance with kids to Lake Shaver, which offers Fishing, swimming and Boating. Very organized and clean, the campgrounds are spread out, private and most have shade.

We will be back!

Beautiful, filled with trees, ladybugs, and cows!

This was a great little find tucked close to Kings Canyon and separated only be a crazy, winding backroad.  The host is very helpful and kind.  There is a field with cows.  COWS!  Mountain cows if you ask me.  There were a ton of ladybugs but the feeling of seclusion was great.  There are some awesome sites right on the stream but I didn't write down their numbers.  We had a great time!

Wrong location so make sure you don’t pay ahead to realize you can’t stay there

Just doing this as a warning for others using this app, this is not the real location for the campsite it brings you to a random oark you can’t sleep at which is 6 hours away from the actual site

Camping among the giants

Ten mile campground was an incredible place to camp among the giants sequoia trees! There was a creek running behind our campground which was an easy (less than 10 minute) walk that had a natural rock slide into the water… perfect to cool off in. Fishing at Hume lake was relaxing. We drove to the visitor’s center for tips on the best hikes and they were very helpful. Definitely will go back!

Well kept but in residential area

1. Campsites are very small

2. Water available at all tent campsites

3. Showers and bathrooms were clean

4.  Near highway in residential area

5. Almost no shade

6. Nice pool area

Nice play to stay

We stayed here for a week over the 4th of July. We planned on spending most of that week in the Sequoias and King’s Canyon, a little disappointing to find that it is quite a drive to get to the parks. The name is deceiving but our bad for not researching more before booking. The pool was nice and we had no issues with the camp site or the hookups. Probably wouldn’t come back to this KOA unless we were just passing through and needed a place to stay.

Camp site #56

Camp sites are at the furthest 3 minute walk to the water. Flushing toilets and sinks to wash hands. Plenty of water faucets located around the camp ground for non drinking water (although I was told by a campground employee the water was tested monthly by the county and was super clean and great for drinking water).

Clean. Well maintained. As described

Restrooms very clean. Some areas shadier than others. Kids loved pool and clubhouse. Shopping nearby.

Army Corps of Engineers campground on a lake

Note: The average daytime temperature while I was here was 101 degrees(high 104), and this will no doubt color my review. 

I stayed here three nights in a 34 foot travel trailer in site 1 in late July. Sites vary in length, there were only a few that would have fit our rig. Some are only parking spaces that lead to tent platforms. Very few sites are level and some so steep that leveling is not possible. All sites have water and electric hookups, and these were very reliable. Our site also had sewage because we were in a host site(yay us!). Speaking of the hosts, they were awesome.  The bathrooms and showers were clean. 

The lake is pretty, but it was so high that boat ramps were closed and the picnic area (including the pit toliets) were completely underwater- so no swimming for us. Despite all this, the place was packed on the weekends. I would give it another chance, but not in late July. :)

Beautiful Quiet Lake

We reserved 2 group sites ,20 & 24 for one weekend. We had six families staying between the two sites. We fit 3 tents (2 large, 1 medium and 1 single person tent) in site 20 and there was no more room to fit a 4th tent without being to close to the campfire. We fit 3 large tents in site 24 and if you squeezed the tents closer together you could have fit a 4th.

There was a lot of shade in site 24, and a good amount in site 20.

Overall the campgrounds are very clean and the campgrounds are very quiet. They are walking distance to the horse stables.

Awesome getting over ran by city folk! Trashing it!

Beautiful lake with a creek through the middle of the camp! Gorgeous always a bear that frequents the area! Great for boating fishing swimming and hiking!

Nostalgic campground

I have camped here most of my childhood it was our favorite place to go. It can be really tough to get a reservation so you need to plan ahead if you are coming in the summer. My favorite time to visit is in late May early June. It’s not to hot and the Christian camp across the lake isn’t completely packed yet. The lake has been pretty low the past 5 years. Hopefully that will change. The sandy beach across from camp is a blast we would swim across or boat across and spend all afternoon climbing the log that has been floating in that lake for 30 plus years. Bathrooms are nice and well kept. And plenty of things to drive and see through Sequoia kings canyon.

Great Beach!

This was a nice campground very close to the beach. Great place to take kids. The RV spaces were very tight and close together. We were concerned about getting our 36 foot motor home out but with some maneuvering and backing up, my husband was able to get us out. We explored the tent camping area and it is beautiful, secluded, and spacious. The staff are very friendly, helpful, and the store is well stocked with good prices.

Beautiful Camping on Shaver Lake

Plenty of campsites, must reserve in advance due to being popular. Easy walk to lakeside and boat ramp. Nice picnic area near lake. Camped with full hookups. Nice store and hospitality center with food, drinks and stock of camp supplies.

Always great

Camp Edison is a private campground. Sites vary in size and price. Some spots come with full hook ups all have electricity. Bathrooms with flush toilets are always clean. Shower cards are available. There are plenty of trails leading to the lake and beach spots too. You can rent boats, kayaks etc from the Shaver Lake Marina. Mix of tent/RV campers, lots of kids.

Best place ever

Let me start by saying it was worth driving six and a half hours to get here. We loved everything from the,isolated campgrounds,the off road trails to test our 4x4 trucks and how our dogs were free to explore with us. There is plenty of wood for your fires, shaded hiking when the sun was out and did I mention the whiskey falls? Beautiful!! Hike past it for an even more beautiful sight to behold. Bass lake is close by as well so you can take a dip to rinse off all the dust you kick up. Yosemite is nice but I prefer less people with a lot of activities.

Comfortable

Very clean campground. Nice host. Food locker. Restrooms. Amazing weather.

Cozy with a spectacular view!

The view from every site can not be beat. Our site was right on the lake and boasted fantastic views of Huntington Lake, especially at sunset when the mountains would glow orange and pink. 

The only draw back was the pit toilets and excessively bright light outside the bathrooms. It kept us up until our camp host suggested covering it up with cardboard and duct tape.

Greatest campground ever!

This is a fantastic little campground my family has been coming to for years. We're working on our third generation of Whisky kids! The only bad thing is that here lately more people have discovered it and you've got to get up there early to get a site. Too bad we couldn't keep it secret forever, but that's the way it goes. The waterfall is a short hike away, and there are plenty of trails to hike during the day, as well as dirt roads to explore. Even if the campground is full there are a couple of "overflow" sites nearby. This is our happy place!

We love Princess!

Great camping near lots of stuff! The sites were clean and relatively roomy.

Lake side camping

The lake is very full now till July 4th. Great boating, and jet ski area. Swimming areas ok. Also day use. Only one trail.

Take Your Pick

Only stayed here once, but drive by it often and always admire the variety of sites. Not a big campground, but each site feels like its own world. We will definitely be back again.
