Dorst Creek, it is named, is maybe 15 minute drive north of the main village where lodgepole campground is situated. At the end of August, not exactly the start of low season, yet this really large and well-spaced campground was very empty, partly I think due to the wild fire that had been going on in Kings Canyon, which was...

When my boyfriend and I arrived at our campground, we were a little worried about how close the campsites were. Luckily, we had a walk in campsite which meant we were secluded.. and had the soothing sounds of the nearby creek to fall asleep to. The campsite was perfect for star gazing- it was the week of the Perseid meteor... More

We went camping to beautiful Sequoia National Park for our Anniversary this September and booked a site at Lower Stony Creek Campground. After being there I can say it was the best decision I made. The sites were spacious, well kept, and calm. There are fire pits to cook in, pretty big bear lockers to store food in , and... More

This review is for upper stony creek located right across from stony creek campground. This campground is small and peaceful. Think theres about 21 sites one loop and one restroom vault toilet and about 3 water spigots. No paved road so expect dust too fly your way when vehicles pass by. Sites 15-20 are closest too the river. Pay Showers... More

We stayed at Stoney Creek on the weekend before Fourth of July. The campsite was small, about 50 spots. I believe our spot (23) was the best! A forest of trees right behind us, far from the neighboring site (which was a double site) and not too close to other neighbors on the right. This site was completely shaded!! Slight... More

I had a great trip, showed up and the hosts found me a wonderful campsite 29, which is a walk in but it is across a brook. Every night there were dear that would walk through the campground. Plenty of birds. Yes the bathrooms... More

My wife & I just spent 3 nights in Stony Creek Campground from Wed-Fri night. Campground is in a fantastic location in Sequoia National Forest between Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Campsites were huge and the campground itself was pretty empty the first two nights which was nice. Restrooms are pretty basic- cold water taps, flush toilets, and very... More
