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. We camped at Dorst Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Dorst Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Dorst Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time at Dorst Creek. It's a great campground with a lot of space between sites. The sites are no-kidding, the size they say, so don't reserve a 20' site thinking you'll fit a 20' trailer and your truck. We didn't see them, but there were bears in the campground both nights we stayed here. We also saw a lot of deer. It was relaxing and a cool escape from the Valley heat and we would definitely return. We camped at Dorst Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

I had stayed at Lodgepole before, and somehow never heard of Dorst Creek. Several months before Labor day we decided to try a go to Sequoia. Lodgepole was booked, but Dorst had plenty of room. I reserved site 15. Backed up to Dorst Creek and a meadow. Probably 50' between sites on each side of us and they were parallel pull-throughs. This was SO much better then Lodgepole which seems like you are on top of each other! Down side is there is no showers, however there is a dump station and water spigots. With the blue tote and water cans, in an RV it was no problem! Beautiful campground and probably the best site there! We camped at Dorst Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
