Set up camp in the lush Sierra Highlands for spectacular wildlife spotting. Summers are hot and dry, so you’ll want to take cover under the shade of the Live Oaks, or go for a dip down in the nearby Kaweah River’s Middle Fork. This small campground has one wheelchair accessible site and is conveniently located next to the Paradise Creek trail to the south and the River Walk to the north. Whether you stick close to home, go wandering through grassy fields and granite peaks, or venture into the wild at nearby Kings Canyon National Park, Buckeye Flat campground is the perfect place to start your Sequoia National Park camping adventure!

Buckeye Flat is absolutely beautiful. From the farthest campsite you are a 2 minute walk from a pretty huge river and there's two hiking trails nearby. Be careful with the one starting near the camp, heard a mountain lion last time. Highly recommend.

Hands down one of our favorite campsites we've ever been to. The Kaweah River wraps, roars, bends, and dominates its way around and through the campsite. Some years it is rushing with icy snowmelt and a deadly current. Other years it is refreshing, cool, and calm enough to pick any one of hundreds of swimming holes.

A shuttle service can get you up and down the rest of the mountain to see General Sherman, Moro Rock, and more, but there is days of exploration to be found just minutes from your campsite at Buckeye.

TOP SECRET: Sites #18 & #19 are perrrrrfect!

Water level and intensity of the current varies year to year - when you catch it just right, it's as good as it gets. Site # 19 backyardOne of about 38934234234 waterfalls shooting off the Kaweah River in the Summer of 2017Sshhh, don't tell anyone I told you but Site #19 is the one! (18 is a close 2nd)

A very clean and well-maintained campground with flush toilets and private toilets. All sites have fire rings, bear boxes, and brand new picnic tables. Sites 10-12 are great for a group camping together. 26 is private, without neighbors, and backs up to a nice hiking trail. Can get pretty wet, but is shady for summer trips. Buckeye has great access to the rest of SNP, close to general sherman and other great forest hikes. Watch the bugs in summer. Highly recommend!
