The best feature of this campground is in its name, and the vista certainly doesn’t disappoint! This campground is really only for larger groups, with 12 mid-sized group sites (7 to 19 people) and 4 large group sites (20 to 40 people) that are first-come, first-serve. The site is open from May 21 to September 29, and has showers, laundry and groceries available about a fourth of a mile down the road at Cedar Grove Village. 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 s’mores supplies 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.
