This campsite is in a very remote part of Sequoia. There's only one road in and out until you hit the fork in the road that takes you to the Trail of 100 Giants Trailhead. It was a great campsite to spend the weekend. Peppermint Falls is a must see, but it's a bit unmarked getting there. You'll have to do some exploring which I find is the best part of being in nature.

The Good: This place was fantastic for a dude's weekend away from the city. Follow the creek behind the camp and you'll find amazing waterfalls to fish. Nearby, there are great natural water slides and jumpoff rocks. It was not at all crowded when were there but it did pick up a bit on Saturday night.

The Bad: This is a really remote campsite, so the bathroom facilities are nothing fancy. When the blazing sun hits them, you'll learn how long you can hold your breath. The flies (biting and otherwise) are the most persistent bugs ever. They go for your eyes and are not dissuaded by even the most powerful of our bug spray (98% DEET).

Head up to Ponderosa Tavern for to cool off. The added elevation really brings down the temperature.

Don't camp here!! ;) Selfishly don't want to post anything on this site because it is AMAZING. Perfectly nestled in the trees, super spacious, and utterly quiet and peaceful. Looking forward to camping here for a second time soon!
