“Quiet tent only campground, next to river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

Kings Canyon is a hidden gem. Like a smaller version of Yosemite. It was very quiet in June and we were almost alone on the campground. The pitches are a good size, with lots of shade. There are no showers here but the toilets are flush and there are pay showers at the nearby lodge (I think about $3.50 per shower) You can't reserve this campground, apart from the group site. It was $18 per night, which was good value. it was very quiet at night, with just the sound of the fast moving river in the background. (Note: you must not leave anything in your car here that has an odour - bears will break the car window and get in!)
