Jul 2012 - $20.00
Spacious sites and very quiet. Rangers are strict about making sure food is placed in bear boxes. The bear boxes are large. Restrooms were clean and it was about a 15 drive into Lodgepole for showers and laundry. - annamom

Love this camp ground and the trails are nice. Best part is the bears you might see on the trails. Lots of things to do and see. - Diane Luc

Ideal for those who want to get into the heart of the NP, and close to all the trails, without the crowds. It DOES have a free shuttle service to Lodgepole, despite what the NP website says. Beautiful setting; a black bear strolled past in a nearby meadow whilst there. Fire pits made for a perfect evening beer setting. For those staying for the nature - stay here instead of Lodgepole. - Sean B.

Lodgepole is a good campground for easy walking distance to the shuttle (which runs every 15 minutes in the summer), showers (costs 4 quarters for about 4 minutes), amphitheater for evening campfires, visitor center and store. We got the last reservation available and stayed in #19. The site was level, close to the restroom and in the shade. Sequoia is incredible, but expect there to be lots of people. Generators OK 8-11 AM amd 5-8 PM. - rkh

The park is great with lots of great hikes. The campground has large boulders lining the narrow roads and sites. We have a 26' trailer and were not able to make the turn into our site row. By backing down another road we were able to make the attempt into the site. It took quite a bit of jockeying to get in to the site. The campground was designed in the days of 16' trailers pulled by cars. - tsparky

We arrived in early April to the whole area covered in snow, so none of the sites had been cleared, we had to park our RV in the car park, but as we were the only ones there we could get close to the restrooms as we wanted. The restrooms in the evening weren't very clean, but by the morning they had been cleaned. A very scenic area, I would think even more beautiful in the summer. The staff in the shop were very friendly, not much food, but plenty of snacks (biscuits, crisps and sweets). I would avoid taking an RV up, we were in a 25", too big. - SCK

Mostly residential park. Quiet, some road noise but the main issue was sites. Although level and concrete, they were so close together that when all slides were out couldn't walk between rigs. We were lucky that the other overnights guest left before we did or it would have been extremely difficult to get out of site. Ok for one or two nights but not long term. - littlegeneral

All sites are back-ins, and are shallow. All are concrete pads. WiFi is available throughout the park, but only works well near the office. At our site, we would get kicked out every 30 to 60 seconds. Cable picture is snowy. The dog park is small (8' x 15'). They are cash or check only, no CC machine. - ta96silver

Small, cramped sites, with many park models. Pool was not heated, and did not look clean. Hot tub was out of order. Bathroom floor has a puddle of water, still there the next morning. WIFI did not work well at all, even though we were told it would work. Chosen from the Passport America book. Rate given was higher than I'd found listed and we were told it recently went up. I would not stay here again. - Carl and Brenda

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

Tiny, tiny sinks in the bathroom. No towels in restroom. Tiny, pay showers with very poor water pressure. Wi-Fi did not work. - LTV camper

We have stayed at this park twice before, the last time 4 years ago. Both times it was very nice and green; some grass, some mowed weeds. Big change! Mostly mowed weeds, lots of dead patches; millions of foxtails which are a big issue for those of us who travel with dogs. The worst foxtails were in the enclosed dog yard! Yes CA has a drought; we live in CA and have the same issues at home. This seems to be a case of just letting the place run down.
On the plus sice, the staff was very friendly, park very clean, quite a few full time residents but rigs/spaces were clean and tidy.
We share others' feelings about the "one hour free wifi", should be free/unlimited like all other RV parks.
For this park I would have expected to pay about $35, not $53. And that was after the KOA club card discount. We would not stay here again. - MarvMarvs

There is hardly any gravel, just dirt with a lot of grass growing on the sites where you park. It smells strongly of manure. It was dark when we came in, but we assume it is near or next to a feed lot. It is cold tonight; can't imagine this place during the hot summer! WiFi is "free" for an hour, then you pay! This is the first time we have Ever run into this at a KOA. We would never come back here. - Pdx discovery

This is an older park in a very industrial part of town near a railroad track. It is conveniently located near Sequoia National Park. Most campsites are pull-thrus with a picnic table. There are some large trees in the park which are good for shade but not good for big rigs or satellite reception. Grass was brown because of drought. The park would be pretty if it was greener. The WiFi setup was strange - you get one free hour of WiFi per device per day. The one hour is continuous - you cannot check your email and then come back after dinner and check it again. Then you have to wait 24 hours it use it again. We used our verizon hotspot which worked fine. The office was the old KOA A-Frame and was dated but they were adding new cabins and seemed to be interested in the future. - lyzzards

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

I found this place on the Internet and decided to take a chance on it. The National Park frowns on RVs larger than 25' so my 30 footer would be a problem in the park. We used a second vehicle for the parks. Parking the RV was pretty easy, the host was awesome, and the amenities worked as advertised. And it was inexpensive compared to other places. I will admit it was a bit rustic but everything worked. If I'm ever in that neighborhood again, I would most definitely stay at Three Rivers Hideaway! Very recommended... - Anctmariner17

We stayed here for 4 nights as our base for exploring Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. Less than 4 miles to the entrance to Sequoia. Older campground with some full time residents. Sites were narrow. Only 30 amp was available. Road to sites was steep and narrow. Laundry was one washer and dryer, did not use so do not know the cost. Got good reception for Dish and AT&T. Further down the driveway, past the tent sites, was a small beach on the river with access only for those staying at the park. - SoonerMom

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

Very nice lady checked us in. Free wifi for all three of our devices and worked very well.
Lots of spaces for RV's that at one time were filled with Mobile homes.
Some older Mobile homes but are kept clean and everyone was friendly. Felt very safe here too!
We used this place as a base camp to see Sequoia and Kings Canyon National parks.
Would defiantly stay again! We stayed in a 34' motorhome with tow. All back-in sites. - 3TexasRats

We stayed at this park as location to visit Sequoia NP as there were no other choices closer this time of the year. The staff was very friendly. The streets are all black top and the sites are concrete. The streets are narrow making it a bit of a challenge getting larger RV's around corners and onto the sites. It wasn't a large issue, but did require moving slowly and carefully. There is some grass between sites making them adequate size and spacing between sites. The park is quite old with most sites occupied by either monthly or long term renters. Most of the long term trailers are old and not in the best of shape. There were a few sites that were empty, but not well kept for some unknown reason. An off thing I noticed was that they were supposed to have 50 amp service, but the site we were on only had 40 amp breakers. - Phaeton_Owner

Very beautiful campground: in the middle of mother nature. One can hear the water of the creek running every where: very relaxing. Our site (North 30) was a pull-in, back out site that was just OK for our 25FT motorhome but it was a piece of cake to park the motorhome on the site. Our site was not level but this was announced on beforehand and there's nothing a good pair of levelers can't solve. Don't forget to bring a sweater for the nighttime because even in summertime the nights can be chilly. - MartinD

We like camping in Sequoias. But we also don't do crowds. There are only three campgrounds in Sequoia with dump station and none with water or electric hook ups. Stony Creek has neither. But it is a few miles north of Lodgepole and nestled on the banks of Stony Creek, hence the name. We have camped here previously in tent and had enjoyed our stay so we decided to go back in the trailer. Glad we did. There was a creek about 20 feet from our trailer and we could hear running water at all times. We saw a few gazelle and a buck next to our camp site. One night a bear got in to the trash bins on the campground. This is a not a site for those who don't want to store their food in the bear lockers. Camp host was very nice and friendly. There was a time when we rarely used to see any RVs in this campground. That was not the case this time. If you don't mind collecting your own wood, there is plenty to pick. Make sure you have small axe though. For us the beautiful surroundings make up for lack of hookups. For some it may not. Make sure you have a long hose to fill your water tanks if you are not carrying water from the valley floor to almost 8000 ft elevation. There is a gas/propane fill up station about half a mile from this site. There are showers there also. No showers on the campground itself. Sites are not leveled enough, so make sure you have plenty of levelling blocks etc. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again. - DV_Socal

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
