Easy access to General’s Hwy for Sequoia National Park access The Sequoia & Kings Canyon area has a long history of being visited. Even in the pioneer days, before the road, people had heard tales of the majestic canyon, wild rivers and of the groves of gigantic trees, that many thought to be a hoax. Folks would make the difficult trip up into the mountain to see for themselves. This site, in the early 1900’s was a farmstead providing fresh fruits and vegetables to the areas loggers, ranchers, hotels and backcountry explorers. During the construction of the new highway In the 1920’s the site was used as a labor camp. During the highway construction days a lodge and gas station was built and was known as “Barton Flat”. In the 1950’s the property was sold and became the “Kings Canyon Lodge”. In 2015 the historic lodge and some of the other cabins were destroyed in the “Rough” fire, by a miracle the original 1928 visible gas pumps survived the fire and are still being used to this day. We are hopeful to eventually rebuild a lodge to serve the many visitors.

RV camping near Bishop guide

Overview

In eastern California, the small community of Bishop sits between Lake Tahoe and Los Angeles at the junction of U.S. highways 6 and 395. Once used as a filming location for old western movies, it’s an easy stop on an RV road trip of the eastern Sierra Nevada, providing access to several outdoor activities. Go hiking or biking on the trails of Inyo National Forest, admire views of Mount Whitney, exploring the rock-climbing scene, or head to one of many Alpine lakes around Mammoth Lakes for boating, fishing, paddling, and swimming. Basic RV parks can be found around town, with a couple that offer full or partial hookups and amenities like playgrounds and hot showers. Campgrounds with RV sites can be found closer to the mountains and lakes but not always with hookups. This is a mostly dry area with temps nearing 100°F in the summer and falling below freezing during winter and spring nights.
