greatest surprise next door!

Fun story - we spent the entire prep for this trip thinking we had booked a campground at Sequoia Nat parks Lodgepole campgrounds - which has its own market and visitors center, with shuttles and lots of great, well known hikes around it. We soon found that it was not the case, and after about an hour of runaround trying to figure out what our campsite was (without WiFi) we finally discovered our camp was about 5 miles down Generals highway in the National Forrest. We pulled up to our much more remote campsite only temporarily bummed, because our camp host came over as soon as we got there and she was SO KIND and very informative. She asked about our trip and shared some hidden gems about this campground - like no bear sightings all summer πŸ‘πŸ» and the PERFECT little stream with pooling water just next door! it’s was soooo magical and refreshing. The campground itself was small, which I loved (less noise from other campers) and the bathrooms were convenient without being too close (basically glorified portas). We had plenty of space for our two tents and the water was close. Also, our camp host had firewood right there for us to purchase. I would recommend this site over some of the major sites any day! It was so nice to have a quiet place to come back to after a long hike without any lines or inconveniences.
