One of the best things Princess Campground has going for it is its location, halfway between Kings Canyon and Sequoia Natl. Parks. From Princess, we were able to spend one full day in each park without driving too far. It's also near Hume Lake, the only place to swim in either park (safely--people swim, and drown, in the rivers every year). The campground itself was nicely maintained, with reasonably private sites on wooded lots. I would recommend staying away from the group sites, which were noisy when we were there (though camp hosts patrolled and presumably were responsible for settling them down). There are lots of complaints in the comments about the pit toilets. We are seasoned tent campers, and I had no objection to them. They are newer composting toilets, and if people follow the directions and keep the lids closed, they are totally tolerable. You'll have to wash dishes and clean up in your own site. Campfires were not allowed due to dry conditions, which is why our tents are so close to the fire pit in the photo. There might be room for just one tent if the fire pit were in use.
