We stayed here for three days to head to Zion and the experience was less then stellar. the campsite was built on what used to be the putt putt court and is located by the road so you can hear anything that passes by at any time of the day. The staff is friendly and the bathrooms are very clean which is why its getting the twi stars but avoid at all costs if using a tent.
Azelea campground is in the center location for Grant's cove with both General grant tree as well as the village just a hike away or minutes by driving, the location is awesome but some of the features of the camp site are lacking compared to other sites. The main issue is the lack of bathroom sites as in the winter time azelea only has one bathroom building which depending on your location can be a huge drag as our site was pretty far away from it.The camp sites are also right on top of each other so be prepared to get pretty comfy with your neighbor. The site did allow camp fires which was great and the village featured a store that provided anything you could need. All in all as long as you have a location close to the bathroom you'll be golden and the location is awesome to getting anywhere in kings canyon.
Visiting Guadalupe national park was very surprising, after finding out that no reservations are required to camp I was a little worried that the location was going to packed but going in the middle of February it was just right. The tent camping side has a total of 19 tent sites which have benches as well as a prepared area for your tent which was nice the site had a bathroom nearby and trash cans very close to every site. The rv side had multiple spots for rvs (didn't count the spaces) but outside of the parking lot were flush toilets and a dish washing station, the trail heads were right by the parking lot so very convenient.
The trail the main trail guadalupe peak was breath taking (literally) the climb up takes about a 2 and half hours but the view up top is amazing! My only complaint of this place is that the amount of trails is lacking (only about 5) and after a day or two your pretty much done but if your in the are the hike up top is unbeatable.
