“Stones Throw Away from Hume Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

After one year of trying to get a reservation on Recreation.gov, I was finally able to reserve 5 days stay at Hume Lake Campground. Our space was on the loop closest to the lake, and was a stones throw away across the access road to a small private beach on pristine Hume Lake. While the Christian camp at the end of the lake became loud on occasion, the campground spaciousness and respectful fellow campers made this a very restful vacation.

There are no showers at the campground, but we brought our outdoor shower tent and solar showers which worked well after a dusty day of hiking in the Sequoias. There are flush toilets with sinks in the bathroom and potable water available. Most camping spaces have pine trees shading them, but we did bring a shade canopy which we used, as it was very warm during the day. Warning - if you're in a tent trailer (like us!) or RV, plan on doing a little leveling as many of the driveways in the camping spaces are sloped, and mostly dirt.

Come prepared, because other than the small general store at the Christian Camp, it's twelve miles to the nearest other small store or restaurant. The general store does have ice, charcoal, condiments and snacks, but nothing more substantial.

On two separate evenings deer came right into the campground. No bears have been sighted for some time, but bear boxes are still heavily utilized.

Bring your bug spray, floatation devices & sunscreen for a lovely weekend!

  • Liked — proximity to the lake, camping spaces were VERY large
  • Disliked — occasional noise (bull horns and bells) from the Christian Camp nearby
  • Stayed June 2008, traveled with friends
