So welcoming and always a incredible stay. Chad (Manager) , Brian, Michelle, and the wonderful chef make it a such an memorable stay. Thank you! Plan on starting the hike at Crescent Meadow early so you can arrive by late afternoon for the shower.

We planned a backpacking trip around a stay at this High Sierra camp. We were very excited to arrive after a long day on the hot and dusty trail- where we found hot showers, brownies and lemonade and very friendly and helpful crew to get us settled. An excellent hot dinner was served and consumed in a communal dining experience,... More

My wife and I are addicted to the National Parks. We enjoy hiking so that we can experience the wonders of the parks. But we are day hikers, not backpackers; we’ll hike all day to enjoy the amazing vistas and look for wildlife, but in the evening we like to have a shower, a hot meal and a warm bed.... More

Not easy to get to but well worth the effort. All the meals were super good but the hash browns need work. Nothing like a nice hot shower and a hot meal after a long hike. And a flush toilet in the back country? What more could you want!!

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
