4 Reviews of Potwisha - Sequoia National Park
Not so Fido friendly & Noisey

We just left after staying 3 Nights here. It was in the high 90s and extremely uncomfortable. We had campsite 1 which didn’t have much shade. When walking around I would recommend 5,7,9 if you are going. At this time (July) they are doing construction 12 after entering the park( which they told us when we entered) they allow cars to pass on the hour. No dogs allowed in the creeks or trails. The flies got the best of me but thats just nature.

The campground itself is basic. Bathrooms somewhat dirty, spots have a lot of sun, ground squirrels EVERYWHERE and basically have no fear. No showers so we sponged bathed and it was perfect. I’m not sure what was going on at night but at the dump station across the street loud trucks would come and it sounded like train cars being locked together/hitting each other.

we didn’t get to see the waterfall since we had our dog( our bad) it’s a pretty drive up to the sequoia forest.

First Campground in Park

As soon as you enter Sequoia from the SW side you’ll see Potwisha on your left. The biggest thing to remember is that the tempshere will be 20 degrees warmer than at Lodgepole, so if you’re underdressed or under-supplied, get into Potwisha. The Ranger came around and checked in everybody, said hi, invited us to the amphitheater area for a stargazing class. She had binoculars and everything you needed to learn about the heavens!

Good place to stay! Love this park!

Nice spot with a beautiful drive to the Giant Forest!

Sequoia National Park is easily my favorite place in tbe US, with wonderful options for camping all around. After some last min changes, we had to resort to this campsite as we were running out of light.

Decent prices for being inside a National Park, though nowhere to buy firewood unless you leave the park! clean bathrooms and a nice variety of different campsites with nice paved places to park!

Great and popular site

We arrived just after dark and a neighbor provided us some of his extra wood. The site was near capacity but was an easy stopover on our trip from Yosemite.
