About Gigantea Campground

Description

Gigantic. Enormous. Colossal. Monumental. These are all words one is bound to use while staying at the aptly named Gigantea Campground just down the road from the McKinley Grove of Giant Sequoias. Rustic camping and ancient trees. This doesn’t happen just anywhere.

We did not camp here, but we camped nearby at Swanson Meadows. We were going to camp at Gigantea if Swanson was full. We still visited Gigantea to check it out. It is far back on McKinley Road which is great for privacy and quiet. From Swanson, we could hear light traffic from Dinkey Creek Road. However, Gigantea is far away from everything, so less road traffic noise is great. The campground is VERY dense with trees-more dense than I've seen at any campground. I thought that was cool but wouldn't fit our family well with children who want to run. This campground is also pretty far from Shaver Lake-45 min, so if you're wanting Shaver fun, I would stay someone closer. Gigantea was not full on Labor Day Weekend. There's always a spot!
