Please note: there are 2 campgrounds across from each other: Stoney Creek and Upper Stony creek. We stayed at the latter, and are very glad for it!
So maybe I shouldn't write this.... one of the best things about the campground was that it was so quiet. We didn't plan to camp here, first tried Lodgepole (full) and then Stoney Creek (also full and felt very "packed"), but in the end we were very happy we stayed here. Of 2 weeks camping (with moderately sized camper), this was our most memorable stay.
Only 3 or 4 other campers far far away, very spacious grounds, prints of bear paws everywhere, good sized fire pit, nice ranger, very cheap, store & gasstation close by and only a short drive to wonderfull hiking trails (I recommend The Trail of the Sequoias - beautiful, quiet, ran into a bear ;-)). There are no amenities, save for a tap with cold water and an outhouse, but dumping stations close by.
If you want to camp IN NATURE, hear absolutely nothing at night, experience true darkness, see deer and (if you're lucky - we weren't) bears: this is your spot!
