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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

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! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is the type of camp ground you would expect for a national park. Potwisha is the only campground RV accessible on the south end of the park. Reservations are not available and this camp ground is quite popular in the summer. In the winter you get your pick of the sites and it makes a good place to setup camp out of the snow if you want to visit the Wolverton snow play area which is about 30-45 minutes up the mountain from here. There are 2 dump and fill stations directly across the highway from this camp ground. There are 8 pull through sites available at this location however leveling is a challenge. There is a river within walking distance that’s nice for a swim in the hot summer months. Also a few hiking trails to a swinging bridge (haven’t been there) and hospital rock (high altitude long hike). There is an amphitheater with ranger programs during peak season. This is also an active bear area bear boxes at every camp site and in a previous tent camping experience here I did have to run a bear away from our car. The national park service does employee a bear patrol who has tagged the bears with locations. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We had site #24, a paved back-in with no utilities but more level than many in the CG, we had shade on the rear of the RV but didn't need it because it was cold and rainy our entire stay. Noisy on the weekend. We only have a 30 ft class A but we were the largest thing in the CG and it really is not designed or maintained for full-size motorhomes. The roads were narrow and we encountered many low hanging tree branches and encroaching bushes. This was an active bear area while we were there and several vehicles were damaged by bears looking for food. Our tow car window was broken even though we had no food, toiletries or trash in the car. Bummer for us but most likely much worse for the bear in the long run. Easy drive to the Giant Forest from this campground and we got through to the Grant Grove area one day when chains were not required. Nightly rate reflects the Interagency Senior Pass discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A very nice low elevation campground thats best in the Spring and Fall. Temps get well over 100 degrees in the summer. A foothill area with wild flowers and Oak Trees everywhere. It has flush toilets and a dump station, but no other amenities. It has some great hiking trails and wildlife is abundant. Located between Three Rivers and Sequoia National Park you have a few mile drive to the grocery store if you forget anything. An easy drive up Hwy 198 East of Visalia and is my favorite cool weather campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
