We came in at night. We weren't expecting flood lamps or anything but maybe some guide lights, a better map, lit up signs, or maybe the leaves blown off the road so we could see it? I know we aren't the only ones who have difficulty coming in at night either because I watched other rigs come in and have to constantly get out of their vehicle to check for turning clearances and overhead branches. We have a 40 ft trailer and had some of the most trouble getting around in this place. There were rocks everywhere. Some were fire pits some were for aesthetics? We were told at reservation that we could pick any site that suited us because of size. Said 22 was one of the bigger pull throughs....sure if we plow through the tree in the middle of the entrance! To add on to that...sites are not exactly numbered. Some are...but the majority are not. Either way the next morning when we went to pay and what not we were told that we have to move because someone is coming into the site that we were at and they have difficulty moving around. Irritated but hey thats what we get right? So we move, go to the park for the day, come back and naturally we have to go check the site we moved out of.....a maybe 40 ft Class A was there....seriously?! Class A's have better turning radius than towables do!!! Lets go ahead and talk about amenities. There aren't any. The bath house is a cozy concrete box, no heat for us lovely winter travelers, 2 shower stalls and 2 toilets. The quantity wasn't an issue. The fact that I had to pay a $1.25 for a 10 minute shower blew my mind. I have never had to pay for a shower. Maybe its a California thing? I was thankful that the water got hot quick though....I needed the heat. All in all the staff was pleasant, wifi was decent and the national park was spectacular.
If you have a larger rig....just go somewhere else. The proximity to the national park is not worth...

We appreciate your feedback and sorry that you encountered some difficulty during your stay. As owners, we will discuss with our staff about the move you had to make to another site. We also own a 5th Wheel and totally understand the difficulty of setting up and having to move to another site and we are sorry that this was the case. It is unfortunate that you had difficulty finding your site. They are numbered, but we understand it might be hard to locate the site at night. Many of our campers don't appreciate having lots of lights in our camping area. We've turned some of them off to accommodate others and enjoy the stars without ambient light. We do fight the leaves during this time of year and we do our best to stay on top of it All to say, many people enjoy the more rustic, by the river and through the woods type of camping which appeals to the majority of our guests. Thank you for positive comment on our staff, we, too feel they are very hospitable and helpful. Glad you enjoyed the National Park, the Sequoias are a treasure and a must see.
