Just because you're enjoying some good old Sequoia National Park camping doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to only sequoia trees. Make yourself at home amongst the aspen trees and conifers, or wander the nearby trails to enjoy rocky mountain views.
Choose from rivers, creeks, or lakes, all within hiking distance for some crisp, cold water. Cook up a fish on your fire ring and bundle up for the night. At over 7,000 feet, expect chilly evenings at Cold Springs. The campground has vault toilets and water via hand pump.

The vibe at Cold Springs Campground
Drop some Cold Springs Campground knowledge on us.
After what seemed like hours on a narrow windy mountain road, 7/29 we arrived 10am on Friday and were left with no choice but campsite 5, no shade at all. On Saturday lots of sites opened up (strange) and we got to switch. The weather was perfect and we slept with tent top off looking at shooting stars. Some sites are very close together, great for a group, while others have a lot more privacy. The flies bite, so don't forget bug spray. The bathrooms were pretty clean except near site 28 where it seemed much more crowded in every site. The water tastes so refreshing there, no need to haul up your own water.
You drive 20 miles up a windy road and it takes an hour but it is 100% worth it! Do the day hike to mosquito lake and have lunch there. There is a big elevation gain on the way up the hike so take it slow if your not an avid hiker.
