Away from other camps

Found this place by accident, it is right after fish creek campground. If your looking for a free campground head on here, although there is no toilets or water access it is still an awesome place to be if you want to be away from people. You can play your loud music and no one will hear you or…

One stop shopping

This spot, pretty much, has it all. Plenty of easy pull through's, 30&50amp, sewer, water and cable. Bathrooms, showers, laundry and numerous dog walks. A large "clubhouse" sporting a pooltable. Easy trailheads in town shown on All Trails app. Clean and quite, a good layover on my way to the…

Alabama Hills are a must see

I dispersed camped here in late September and it was absolutely beautiful. Views of Mt. Whitney, perfect camping weather and sleeping temperatures, otherworldly landscapes, what else do you need?

Large, friendly, & clean

We found this site last minute and It was large, had a store, clean spacious bathrooms, and good views! Jets from the local military base fly through practicing turns and passes. Cool to see.

Stayed day after Labor Day. First come first serve and not many people there. Was able to find spot next to lake in tent only section. Looks like place was full for Labor Day with reservations but was still pretty clean. It was above 100 degrees so pulled in at 5 and left by 9:30 next morning but…

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…

Excellent camping and climbing!

Pretty dusty from offroaders sometimes but its pretty quiet at night with everything being spaced out a LOT. It's all dispersed camping so no bathrooms, trash, water, etc. Find a nice dirt patch and it's yours. Lots of great hidden spots.

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…

Awesome little campground

Beautiful and quiet little campground with sequoia trees all around. Saw deer in and around the campground almost daily. Camp host was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again.

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…
