The vibe at Sunset Campground
Drop some Sunset Campground knowledge on us.
The site lists this as a first come, first served camp ground, but that is not the case. The park service website takes reservations. Not sure if there is any point showing up on dates that the website shows as fully booked. Crystal Springs and Azalea are first come first served only, while Sentinel sets aside some sites for walk ins.
This is a great website for privately run campgrounds, but for public campgrounds, I would not make it my primary source of information.
Last year we booked for August and will definitely be back! so it's strange that this site says that it's first come first served. check the park website.
Sunset Campground earns its name as the show going down on the west side of the campground is not to be missed! However, if you manage to secure one of those coveted sites, plan to be inundated the rest of camp. We found it nice as we met our neighbors :) Sunset is close to much in the grant grove area, including General Grant, panorama point, and from there you can hike to the park ridge trail to fire lookout.
This campground has toilets, trash and I water. Please also be sure to use the bear lockers provided to protect yourself and the bears!
