“Fantastic tent only location by river, watch out for the bears!”
Reviewed July 8, 2010

This is a first come first served campground for tents only. It is $18 per night. There are flush toilets and utility sinks. Showers are at Lodgepole visitor centre and cost $3 per shower. The camp is quite a long way from the Giant Tree area, made longer if there are road works going on, it's a pretty drive though. The pitches are green and quite spacious and very close to the fast running river. This meant that any music/talking at night was drowned out by the sound of water - so you get a good night's sleep. WARNING - you MUST put everything with an odour in the bear box,(including windex, chewing gum wrappers etc) NOT in your car as there were 4 car break ins by bears over the weekend we were there - and those bears are very adept at breaking windows and causing a lot of damage!
Check out the local hike out the back of the camp, it goes to a wonderful little waterfall where there is a place to safely paddle!
