Located under open stands of evergreen pines, this campground has more than 100 sites situated at 6,500 feet above sea level. It is about 3.5 miles away from the Kings Canyon park entrance in the Grant Cove area, and offers ranger programs in the summer. Like most campgrounds of this size, you will be relatively close to your neighbor, but sites are fairly spacious. Campsites are first come, first serve. This campground also has access to trails that lead you to Grant Grove Village and General Grant Tree (both truly amazing spots, check it out here ). As with almost every camping spot in this park, you will want to bring or rent a bear locker so critters don’t get into your marshmallows before you do. As weather can affect whether a campground is open or not, always be sure to call 559-565-3341 before you go to double check.

This is our go-to campsite when visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. We’ve always had luck finding a spot, even in the busy season. It’s BEAUTIFUL here: there are huge trees, a nearby river, and rolling fog. It’s also quite close to the Visitor Center and Store. Firewood is a bit too pricey, so we scavenge for free firewood (it’s totally legal and fun.)

BEWARE OF THE COLD. We camped in late-April and it was too freezing for tenting. July was just right.

The small accessible site we’ve used sacrifices privacy for easy access to the restroom. It’s also literally on the same small lot as the garbage bins and the sinks, so it sees a lot of traffic. I don’t love it and will try to find a better accessible site next time.

Azalea is one of the easiest to access from the main entrance to Sequoia / Kings Canyon! We loved this site because of the rv accessibility and options for tent camping. You can hike directly from the camp to Ella Falls and to one of the Presidential sequoias - General Grant. There aren't showers on site but it's a 5 min walk to the village where there's a market and showers. Also, the sites weren't very close to each other which gave a nice sense of seclusion. If you prefer a more mountainous terrain, drive deeper into the park to sentinel or sheep creek.
