Also located in Kings Canyon like nearby Sentinel Campground, this campground is on the middle fork of the Kings River. Located at 4,600 feet, these 111 campsites are first come, first serve, and located to the west of charming Sheep Creek. There are groceries, showers and laundry access at nearby Cedar Grove Village (a quarter mile away). 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 s’mores supplies 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.

Sheep's Creek is THE spot to camp in King's Canyon. One can fall asleep to the sound of rushing water from anywhere in the campgrounds, though there are plenty of spots to grab right along the river (caution is advised when camping near any river). The spaces are some of the largest I've seen anywhere in the country, especially the sites along the outer edge. This gives a feeling of seclusion even when the next site over is occupied. The trees are numerous, providing plenty of shade in the afternoon, and many hammock hanging opportunities.
I suggest higher grounds (Sequoia) in the summer, as the heat and bugs can be intense here.

During the summer, you usually aren't allowed to build fires here.

BEAUTIFUL campground. The location is stunning, right on the King's River. Some sites are smaller/closer together but overall most of the sites here are large to VERY large, giving campers peace and a feeling of seclusion. And compared to alot of campgrounds in these parks (ahem Dorst Creek) even the smaller sites offer more space than many campgrounds.

My new favorite camping spot :) :)
