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

Great Campground if you like the sound of water, and to get away from the masses. 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

Stayed here for a week. Not all sites are large but are clean and near the creek so you will hear the soothing sound of running water. Bear boxes are large but don't have two doors so its a pain getting items in and out. Also some bear boxes are not shaded so they can get hot which will warm... More

My Family and I have been coming to Stony Creek for 20 years and Love it. I noticed a review that stated the campground is all dirt. The roads and site where you drive and park your vehicles are all paved. Motorized vehicles are not allowed off the pavement. The campground has flush toilets and a mile beyond the campground...

Expensive gas. Pay phones have lots of mice feces and some hair on the top and around them. Only one pay phone in working order, but on the other I had to yell to be heard. Unconcerned clerk. I had thought of eating and staying over but I don't want hantavirus or something.

We visited Stony Greek Campground over Labor Day weekend. We started at a site (#28) in Lower Stony Creek. When we arrived, it was obvious that the camp hosts were overwhelmed and had not been able to rake the site or clean out the fire pit. We found some trash and dog poop in the site. The next day, we... More
