This spot is located about 4 miles into the park from the entrance near Grant Grove, close to Azalea Campground. Situated among pine groves at 6,500 feet, it is a much smaller campground than Azalea, with 36 individual sites and 13 mid-sized group sites (7 to 15 people). Campsites are spacious and nicely placed, and just about a ¼ of a mile away from Grant 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 hotdog stash 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.
