If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great spot for group camping! There's soooo much space here and it's so close to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park. I'm the first hipcamp camper! Sandra, the host, gave clear directions on hipcamp, which you should follow since there another similar road but not the best way to get to this location. I camped outside, although there's a house available but you'd have to message the host about that. I visited at a time when she was fixing the house so I was able to use the bathroom, but she plans on providing outdoor amenities and some other things, so I'm excited to see how this location develops over time. The next-door ranch has cattle and horses that sometimes roam onto her property-- I only saw 2 horses roaming around, which was pretty cool! They didn't pay much attention to me though. I camped in mid-September and you can already see some of the leaves changing into autumn colors. She's right next to a dried up stream but in the spring, she says that the stream/creek is running and the plants are lush! So I definitely want to check it out during spring as well. Her property continues uphill, and there's a little trail that leads to the top of the ridge. I highly recommend staying here if you have a big group of people and want to be near the national parks. It's a peaceful place.
