We went to Hume Lake Campgrounds twice this year. The sites are good for an RV or tent camping. some are more shaded than others, and some even have views of the Lake. All are quite close to the lake, only a short walk to the water. The campground sites have no hook-ups, but they do have water available, and bathrooms with sinks and flush toilets. The lake has a wonderful walking trail all the way around.
During the summer, June thru August, the air is filled with noises from the children at the near by Christian camp, and young people on bikes on the trails, so we prefer to go in May or late August thru September.The flora is best during the Spring and is magnificent, but the wildlife abound in both Spring and Fall. No motor boating is allowed, which makes the water clean and swimmable all year
The Christian Camp is with in short walking distance, and has many amenities open to the public. There is a nice cafe with yummy food, and reasonable prices, you can eat inside or outside in the shade with a lake view. There is also a coffee place called "Hume n' Beans", cute and comfy. It boasts of canoes and row boats for rent, and even boats with electric trolling motors for fishing. There is a gas station (the only one up in the Sequoias), and a well stocked General Store, as well as a lovely Gift Shop, and even a Post Office. Also has a Lodge and cabins for rent. And a swimming pool for the Christian Camp guests. This privately owned camp has a web-site:
www. Humelake.org, ( also see the live web-cam to see the current lake conditions).
All in all, a great place to visit. The camping grounds are publicly owned, and you have to pay to get into the Sequoia area, but there is lots to see. If you are over 65, you can pay once for a lifetime senior pass, ask for it at the entrance station.
