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

Warning! On your way in on North Fork Drive watch for tree limbs, took out my buddies black tank pipe and shower dome. But the RV park is nice and close to National Parks. - Bert338

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

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

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

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

This is a nice smaller camp ground with pull through sites with water and electric available as well as a dump station. The sites were gravel but pretty level. The camp hosts were very friendly and kept the place spotless. The camp ground is about 30 minutes from the Sequoia National Park, which is a magnificent place to visit. All in all this a great spot as a gateway to the National Park. - Walter48

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

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

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

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.
