We picked this campground because we wanted to be close to sequoia and kings canyon. There are several loops and I highly recommend to pick one of the recommended sites on campsitephotos.com. There are over 200 sites but only about 8 or so recommended. We had site 142 which was on the rim offering views and some privacy. The best... More

Four of us camped here for one night in early July 2016. It was supposed to be two nights, but due to a family matter we had to leave one night early. We reserved a site about two weeks before our trip and were surprised there were spots left considering it was a holiday week. The sites are spacious and... More

This camp is located about 12 miles from the closest store and other conveniences and services. It is beautiful, with lots of big trees, but the sites are mostly on hills. There are very few flat camp sites. You must use bear boxes and they say bears are in the area. We did not see any bears during our stay.

Wonderful place to stay. Ideal for all of the sights and even with the RV we were able to get about really easy. First off you don't need to put food in bear lockers so long as it's in the fridge. Second there are no nearby stores so take enough food to last and a torch for the evening. Plenty... More

My group stayed at Dorst Creek Campground the weekend of July 15th – 17th. Upon arriving, the “check-in” was smooth and quick. They did give a quick reminder of the importance of using the provided bear boxes. During our stay, we did see a camp site get a ticket (or warning) for leaving their bear box open with food/trash unattended.... More

First off, you need to use bear boxes for ALL your stuff. ALL the time. No stroage in your car. Our bear box was in the sun most of the day so we had to use our canopy tent to cover it otherwise the sun was too intense and would melt the ice in the cooler in just a few... More

We camped for 3 days at Dorst Creek camp site #81. It was a great spot for tent camping as it is in a no generator area so you do not have those loud RVs running their AC all night. We were also pretty close to the restroom which was great since we have a 3 year old who often... More

Our family of four stayed at site 204 for four days, which was nice and spacious. The tent space accommodated our 10x10 tent, which was on a very slight slant, but not enough to have us sliding down. We all slept comfortably. The site was also not on top of anybody else. We did not feel cramped at all, though... More

We camped at Dorst Creek for several nights in June. We loved the location as it was centrally located within Sequoia National Park and conveniently close to Kings Canyon. About 20 minutes to the General Sherman Tree, a bit further to the Giant Forest Museum. It is about 15 minutes drive south to Lodgepole Village, which has a market, deli/hot... More

I'll start with the good. The park is amazing. Even if you're not a nature nut you can still appreciate these gorgeous views and magnificent trees. There's tons of wildlife in the park as well. We seen many mule deer, marmot and, get ready for it.. 2 bears. Eeek. I'm from Ohio and backpack regularly in PA and had to... More
