There are no hookups so totally dry camping but it does have places that accommodate 30' fifth wheels and many places you can circle the wagons to camp with friends. But make sure if your taking something large that you pick a spot near the main road the further you drive back in toward the camp the tighter it gets.

It is closed during the heavy snow season.

It's best to backpack into sequoia so you can have a spot right by the waterfall
