Excellent and gorgeous experience at the only official High Sierra camp inside Sequoia National Park. Six tents only (with, generally, two to a tent but sometimes there will be a third person on the floor -- so usually around 12 people but sometimes 13 or 14). Excellent breakfasts and dinners (and they made me an individualized vegetarian dinner each night... More

Bearpaw is a back-country "lodge" requiring in 11.5 mile hike in and out. The food is very good and the beds are comfy - things that you do not have to carry with you. You must be in good hiking condition for this trip.

A beautiful camp situated in the High Sierras with terrific views and access to great hikes with all the comforts of delicious home-cooked meals, hot showers, and warm comfortable beds. All the advantages of back-packing, but without the back-pack!

This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. And there was nobody on the trails! Plenty of people probably think it is pretty lame when backpacking to have a warm bed, breakfast and dinner, a hot shower and a good toilet when backpacking…but it really is pretty nice to have all of those things in...

This was the second time I've been to Bear Paw, this time with 9 other friends who were equally enthralled with the place! Chad and Michael prepared great meals and always had good information on the area, the hikes and the history of Bear Paw. Beds were comfortable and the kerosene lamps made you feel at home. Extra blankets provided... More

I concur 100% with Electric2's review - that really says it all. The hike is an adventure of a lifetime, with meadows, dropoffs, sweeping views, butterflies swirling around your head, wildflowers, creek crossings, and strenuous elevation gains. To arrive at Bearpaw High Sierra camp is truly like finding an oasis. We were greeted with brownies, lemonade, and hospitality that can't... More

What a great time my wife and I had! Our two nights at Bear Paw High Sierra Camp was an experience of a lifetime. We spent our first night at Lodge Pole Campground (site 132 - great site) to acclimatize to the elevation. The following morning we got an early start as we wanted to avoid the heat on the... More

It is a long way from the Crescent Meadows trailhead, but the effort is well worth it when you finally arrive at Bear Paw. Although the trail is verrrrry long, it is well engineered with very few steep or difficult sections. Along the trail you are constantly rewarded with great views looking south across the canyon with occasional glimpses of... More

It takes a lot of work to get to Bearpaw but it is very much worth the journey. It's a long walk with wildflowers and ferns along the trail, and there is a 600' climb in the last mile. But when you finally walk into camp the Great Western Divide is there in your face and a hot shower awaits.... More

The idea of hiking 11.5 miles into the mountains may seem daunting, however, when you arrive at Bear Paw, you will find yourself richly rewarded. A breath taking view of the Great Western Divide comes into view as you take those last few steps towards the cook house. A friendly host offers you a chair on the porch and a... More
