This campground has a lovely spot in the canyon along the South Fork of the Kings River, meaning you are just steps from one of the loveliest vistas in the park. This campground has a little bit of a wonky schedule: One loop is open April 24 through October 15 for early season, all loops are open May 21-28 for Memorial Day holiday, and all the loops are open from July 2 to September 2 for peak season. Also first come, first serve, this campground has 82 spots that have easy access to several trails, including one to Sheep Creek campground, Canyon View Trail, and one to Don Cecil (a scenic path that leads you out of the canyon and through the surrounding forests, click here ). There are ranger programs from July to mid-September, and horseback riding nearby as well. As with almost every camping spot in this park, you will want to bring or rent a bear locker so critters don’t get into your secret stash of cookies before you do. As weather can affect whether a campground is open or not, always be sure to call 559-565-3341 before you go to double check.
