Like another poster said there's been some effort to improve the park but the owners have fallen short. Check in was a comic show. Took us 30 minutes . We ended up unhooking vehicles and going back in and the clerk still was working on finding our reservation and site. .Big rigs here aren't welcome by the signs of overhanging trees on the access roads and in the site. I carry a tree trimmer around for such cases as i had to cut branches in site to pull slides out There was a lot of gravel added to areas of travel but twice as much is needed. my patio was fine dirt and with any wind created a dust bowl. Overall the park was very dusty.
We never sat outdoors as dust was flying all around us so stayed inside or visited local attractions.
The worst problem was electrical. Parks power kept blowing at the main circuit or the voltage was so low (100-105) that my surge protector would shut off power . I had to run generator during day to run a/c. Complained to management but they came around to fix or remedy.
I left a day early
We stayed here so we wouldn't have to run the road up to 3 rivers area but would not choose this park again. - Big Rigger

Park is clean and has very big spaces. People are very nice and helpful. The only problem is the internet is very limited but they are working on making it better. - Rhonda Morris

Many long term residents with junk piled around their sites but some sites were very well kept, grass tended to, small fences and those folks were nice. Others were not even given to say hello. The owner gave the appearance she wished no one would bother her. The price was a little high considering no TV or Internet service. The park was too far from Sequoia & King Canyon National parks. We had paid for 3 days and left in 2. I was not comfortable in this park and would not go back. - Ted Morgen

Stayed in a 38 foot Class A RV. This campground is really not designed for large coaches. The grade coming into the campground was around 8% and tight turns to get to our site. There is a clean dump station area but we felt too hard for us to use as it is at top of hill but due to our length we were apprehensive to safely get in and out. Very clean and beautiful area in March. Hot shower in Women's side but Men's side had no hot water. - Scooterd16

We took a road trip this summer for our family vacation and left the camper behind, opting for tents in the mountain air. We loved the Sequoia Forest and cannot wait to return soon. The bear boxes kept food safe and we enjoyed so many day hikes up to the surrounding lakes - absolutely stunning. - PeachyCreative

Absolutely lovely campground, great lake views. Crowded at weekends - can be hard to find a good site. Some sites sloping. Operated by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It can be reserved through ReserveAmerica. - IanS

Great little gem right outside Sequoia national park. Park is well maintained and had everything you could want. Was pleasantly surprised by cable TV and great WiFi. Dirt parking and not much grass in each site but lots of public places and a beach right on the river. We'd stay here again. - chopper989

Very nice park close to Sequoia. Some sites are pretty close, other have plenty of room. Very pretty river views from some sites. Very helpful staff. We would stay here again. Not much to chose from in the area but best in the area. - Linda Allan

The location of this park is excellent if you want an RV park with full hookups that is a reasonable distance to Sequoia. Our's was a pull-in site facing forward towards the river, which was really nice. That was about the only thing nice about this park. The WiFi almost worked. We had to go near the office to get a signal that would stick. The restrooms really need updating. They were sort-of clean but not very well. I didn't use the showers but they were coin op. The toilet stalls were too small and the toilet took up most of the space, leaving very little room to move. Fortunately the doors opened out so you could leave the door open until you got seated. It was early in the season and most of the tent sites were empty but it looked like the trash was not cleaned out of the fire pits from last season. The laundry facility was OK with stack able washer and dryer with decent capacity. The wash and dry cost was higher than many other places. I'm not sure if I would stay there again. The value just wasn't right. - sprinter55

Don't miss the entrance! It is very hard to make a U-turn on this narrow road that comes to a dead end after a few miles.
Friendly staff. The roads in this park are in terrible condition and watch the trees!
Shaded sites in various sizes and absolutely noiseless during the night.
Don't bother the river side sites in late summer or fall, there is hardly any river.
Wi-Fi works great everywhere in the park and there is good phone coverage.
Permanent residents are living in a separate part of the park.
The price per night is way too high, but you probably noticed already that there is not much choice in this area of California for full hookups. - Bluesbirdy

Wonderful campground. Our site was by the river and we had plenty of privacy. The bathroom is not convenient and the showers were pay showers which is inconvenient. The hosts were very friendly and this park is located close to three rivers. We would definitely camp here again. Sites are shady and spacious. - Brian11

Great Campground. Little tight with the trees on the entrance road and we ended up with a little tear. Our site was shaded and spacious with a short walk to the creek. Not their fault but while we were there, they had a boil water advisory due to bacteria. Great location for visiting the Sequoias. WE will definitely return. - Dog on the road

The campground itself was nothing to get excited about, gravel, back-in sites, all very close together...however, they have a private "beach" that was wonderful! It's a small, crystal clear cool pond that you can swim/wade into that was super to sit around, or wade into. It had trees all around, a sandy beach, a little brook, etc. Truly an oasis. No cell / WiFi service at all, so know that going there. You are just outside Sequoia (about 15 min). - MarieB

We planned to do a round trip through Sequoia NP and King Canyon NP the next day and to return back to Three Rivers Hideaway. Unfortunately, the Southern entrance of the NP doesn't let in RVs longer than 22 feet due to the winding and narrow street. Recommend take the gate at the Northern part of the park.
As we had to pass the RV park again after we have been declined to enter the park we asked the owner of the park if we could cancel our second night. It didn't make any sense to get back here. We were were happy that she accepted our offer. We appreciate that very much!
The park has some nice sites (like no 16 - 19) but very old facilities. There are a lot of permanent residents with quite a big mess. Very quite place in the middle of mother nature. - WorldTravelers

Location is the best thing about this park. About 3 miles from Sequoia National Park, and on the Kaweah river, above the lake. They have WiFi, but it's only at the office. Cable gets a poor reception. Sites are deep, but very close together. Laundry has only 1 washer and dryer. There is a concrete patio, but it's small. - ta96silver

We were in a 24' class C. We stayed here knowing that we would not be able to take it beyond this point on the General's Highway, but hadn't done any dry camping with the unit and wanted to try it here for 1 night. The road coming in is extremely winding. This campground is in the Sierra foothills and not in the big trees. For that you need to go to one of the other campgrounds and enter the park from the north. Those campgrounds had been closed when were there or not available for advanced reservations. There was no way to get the unit level due to the slope. In fact, we didn't see any sites that were even close to level. Overall it was fine, but don't think we'll be back. - Tvl Junky

If you have a rig that is 25plus feet don't go to this campground. Also if you go be sure to takes lots of leveling equipment. Our site was a pull thru paved but we have to jack the trailer up on one side about eight inches! We watched class c come into back up sites and could not get level. Fifth wheels were hitting the trees as they came through the campground. Otherwise the campground was very nice and clean. We did enjoy our stay there though. - mivo49

This is a beautiful campground set amid oaks, California buckeyes, manzanitas and other lovely trees and shrubs. Our site, #22, was a back-in site which was large, spacious, fairly level and nestled in its own little grove of oaks. There are flush toilets and running water in the campground, but no showers. The dump station is across the road where there is also a potable water source for filling your fresh water tanks. Use of the bear storage boxes is strictly enforced. This campground makes a great base for exploring Sequoia National Park. Our fee reflects the fact that we have a Golden Age Pass. The regular nightly fee is $18. I would not recommend this campground to anyone with a big rig due to the narrow winding roads both in the campground itself and into the park from Three Rivers, but for anyone in a smaller rig or tent camping, it's a gem! - BruceandKathyWA

Nice cement pads. Convenient to shopping, restaurants and Sequoia National Park. Managers very friendly and accommodating. They invited us to barbecue that the park had. - Geezer traveler

Although I don't usually choose a Mobile Home Community to stay in, this one had quite a few sites put aside for RV's. The park was neat and clean and the person checking us in was very friendly. They had a lovely small pool and the location was good.
It's about 3 miles from Hwy 99 but in a very quiet location close to Hwy 198. Worth the drive for the quiet. Our site was just long enough for our 40 ft Rv, although we were told it was 50 ft. Good location for shopping and getting into downtown. Not much room to walk the dog, as we didn't want him to use people's sites who live here. Verizon cell and air card were good. We would stay here again. - Danni

We stayed at this park for its proximity to the National Parks. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to several restaurants. Our site was a large concrete pad, long enough to accommodate our 45 ft motorhome. Ample space on each side for slide outs. Sewer hookup is located at the back of the site, necessitating a long hose. Wi-fi was free, but slow. Verizon signal not great, but adequate. Office staff were friendly. Nice looking swimming pool,though we didn't use it. We would definitely stay here again. - WGlengrl

First, getting here is an adventure, closer to the nightmare side, CA Rt 245 is a VERY narrow VERY winding back road, luckily we met only one car, but with our 29' class C & toad,we had no major problem getting here or leaving, other than the white knuckles. This campground only has about 6 dirt sites side by side, with no separation, they are all full hookups and fairly level, and while there are some trees, there is very little shade at certain times of day.
The owners are extremely friendly & helpful, while there is no laundry facility, the owner let us use her private machines for free.
This is the closest campground to Sequoia National Park, with full hookups. It is very quiet and peaceful.
There are no picnic tables or fire rings at each site, but there is a sort of "community" area with tables and a grill. All in all, would probably stay here again. - bukhrn

OMG, once we arrived we loved this park, but getting there was a bit scary. Depending upon the direction you're traveling, you have to travel on a narrow road (CA-245) with very tight curves for the last 10 or 20 miles before reaching the park. We were heading north from Visalia, so had the 20 mile trek up the mountain to the park. When we left the park, we continued north for the 10 mile trek, but the car was driven separately as a lead car to alert the driver of the motor home if another vehicle was approaching. It was a mistake not to unhook the car going up the mountain, but once we had started up we didn't find a spot where we felt safe stopping to unhook the car. Fortunately, there wasn't much traffic on the road the day we went to the park or the day we left the park. Having the lead car was much less stressful and safer than towing. The main entrance gate to the park is 12' tall, but there is another entrance for taller vehicles, which I believe was 20'. The manager of the park was super friendly and offered information about the area at check-in. The park, with an interesting history, is located on 377 acres of Sierra mountain foothill property. There are hiking/biking trails and bicycles are offered for the use of guests. It was a great property for letting our dog run off leash, and we loved the quietness of the park. There are 6 back-in RV sites with 30 amp power, water and sewer, as well as several cottages for rent. There is a shower/restroom facility, but we didn't use it. There is a laundry room, free of charge. Next to the RV sites is a group picnic area with a barbeque and horseshoes. There is a small store that has snacks, drinks and Sequoia Resort t-shirts. For smaller rigs, we would definitely recommend this park, but due to the road leading there, we would NOT recommend this park for what we consider a "big rig." - Guinness

This was a great little find. The property is extremely large and beautiful. It is comprised of several houses far away from the RV spaces. The park is about 30-45 minutes from the Kings Canyon Visitors center. They have a great little fishing pond where we had some pretty good luck. There was a little shop which provided free WiFi, phone (cell service works but is weak there) and free loaner DVDs. The owners are beyond friendly and helpful. There are cats and toys which kept my child occupied and happy. We were quite delighted and would stay again in a second. Make sure you ask about the creepy but pretty cool history of the park. It made the stay a bit more intriguing. - Ugly SAM
