“Scenic, Fishing And Loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Picturesque little lake with a privately run store and gasoline sales. It is located on NF land and contains a private religious camp. The day I was there had wonderful weather and the trail around the lake was well traveled. There was a rock concert and plenty of teen campers. By the time you hike past Sandy Cove, it is mostly quiet but this is not a place for solitude or contemplation in silence.

This was our first time to Hume Lake. We spent an hour walking around the lake and there were many people in the water.

“Nice stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Cedar Grove area. There's a beautiful lake here where there's swimming and boating. A Christian camp runs sessions for families and campers. But other people can come and eat at the deli or snack shop. We got some food at the snack shop. Price was reasonable although we had to wait a bit to get our order. It was a nice place to stop on our way out.

“Great place for a swim in SKC!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Hume Lake is one of the few places to go for a nice afternoon swim in Sequoia & Kings Canyon. The spot to go to is Sandy Cove beach which is a little way up the road from the Christian camp. There's a small sand beach there and the water is pretty warm. It has space available on both sides of the small inlet so you can sit in shade or full sun if you choose. If you're looking to spend a few hours on the beach this is the place to go!

“Packed with loud teens, not the nicest place to visit.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Came there to take some pictures of some birds and ducks. Unfortunately, it was extremely packed with kids and families. Disappointed. The view wasn't that spectacular either.
