Arrived at the campsite Sunday afternoon. The bathrooms were totally backed up, unsanitary and septic. Asked the Ranger if they were going to be fixing them soon, replied that the person responsible is off until Tuesday. IMHO, it is entirely unacceptable to have restrooms that are in this condition, especially when children are involved.
We were able to use the handicapped restrooms, but on a busy morning, you may be waiting 1 hour or more.
Other than that, the campsite itself is as-advertised. Tent-only, next to water. Sites are adequately spaced, with fire rings and tables.
Only other complaint is that the Sequoia website states that outside firewood should not be brought in, as it negatively exposes the trees to outside fungus and diseases. I respected this request, but when I got to the camp site, I found out you cannot buy any wood in the park except for at Lodgepole, which is 30 minutes away. That is unacceptable. Either provide sites with a way to purchase wood locally, or don't advise campers to not bring in wood from the outside.
