While on a family backpacking excursion through Sequoia King’s Canyon National Park, and the surrounding area, we came across this charming campground. A long-forgotten chapel in the mountains that was formerly a summer camp. From here, a short 15-minute drive will take you directly to the main entrance of Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park for access to the Giant Sequoias at Grant Grove and the Grant Grove Village. For those who prefer to travel off the beaten path, a short 30-minute hike will take you to the National Forest. We are excited to invite you to camp at this hidden gem, while we undertake to restore the campground to its original splendor. Easy drive to available parking, with easy access and pull through drive for any vehicle, even with trailers. For campers bringing their own tents, we provide beautiful and well- shaded sites with level ground, soft grass, tucked underneath the many old-growth trees.

Yurt (Furnished)
Very rustic.
It’s about 45 minutes to 1 hour from both Sequoia and from Kings Canyon and very remote. About 23 miles from Woodlake (the closest town with a gas station) If that works for you then you will love it. There are showers and the bed in the yurt is surprisingly comfortable especially if you like Simi firm foam and the host is very hospitable.Supplied a fan for the yurt. The views are spectacular!

We had some concerns about fire safety. No fire rings/pits and people were just having open fires. Could be a great place with little work.

Ok for 1 night
Jack was very helpful, the place is very secluded. Good WiFi. Needs to be fixed a little bit more but it would do for one night!

Beautiful Hilltop Campsite
Great campsite on top of a mountain with beautiful views. It is very peaceful out here and this location has good proximity to Sequoia National Park. Jack was an excellent host!

Great spot - peaceful and beautiful views even over the busy memorial day weekend. Jack was a very responsive host. Highway 245 is out so be warned that until that is fixed, it is a bit of a lengthy and windy drive to the national parks.

Great campsite! The host was very helpful and the instructions to get to the site were very clear. Verizon internet was available at the site, but recommend downloading a map of the area.
