We ended up staying here when we couldn't get reservation at Hume Lake Campground and were really happy that we did. Plenty of trees, clean vault toilets, nice host and a very informative interpretation program in the evenings and mornings good for all ages. There is also a nice hiking trail near by that has a great view of a meadow. The only downside at this current moment is that campfires are NOT permitted due to the extreme fire danger. Princess Campground is approximately 20 minutes to Hume Lake. We would definitely make this a repeat destination.

One of the best things Princess Campground has going for it is its location, halfway between Kings Canyon and Sequoia Natl. Parks. From Princess, we were able to spend one full day in each park without driving too far. It's also near Hume Lake, the only place to swim in either park (safely--people swim, and drown, in the rivers every year). The campground itself was nicely maintained, with reasonably private sites on wooded lots. I would recommend staying away from the group sites, which were noisy when we were there (though camp hosts patrolled and presumably were responsible for settling them down). There are lots of complaints in the comments about the pit toilets. We are seasoned tent campers, and I had no objection to them. They are newer composting toilets, and if people follow the directions and keep the lids closed, they are totally tolerable. You'll have to wash dishes and clean up in your own site. Campfires were not allowed due to dry conditions, which is why our tents are so close to the fire pit in the photo. There might be room for just one tent if the fire pit were in use.

Room Tip: We liked the farthest loop. We were in site 83, which was reasonably private. Sites on the outer side of this loop away from the road (see map) are the best.

This was my family and I first trip to the Sequoias.Princess campground was in the perfect location for this trip.We were in campsite #90 which was shaded early morning & evening.Well maintained flat campsites.Not having showers,sink,or flushing toilets sucked.They did clean the Vaults daily.The proximity to Hume Lake (10min) & Grants Grove (15min) was perfect.Go to Sandy cove beach @ the lake through the christian camp section.Grants grove was amazing!The General Grant tree is perfectly framed for viewing.Any one in the family can easily walk to it.Both Hume lake & Grants grove have stores for any food items and restrooms/showers.

My daughter works the summers at Hume Lake Christian Camp so my wife and I along with my other daughter and her husband camped here due to its proximity to Hume. Most of the sites are well laid out and spacious. We had a great time with so much to do in the area. My only head-scrather was the bathrooms. A couple of prior posts mentioned how clean and wonderful they were. Our women actually found the glorified outhouses to be nearly intolerable. None of the girls are "prissy" yet they found the bathrooms disgusting. Oh well. Highly recommend the hike to the Muir Grove to see the big trees in their natural environment.

What a BEAUTIFUL and immaculate campground; exceeded our expectations having camped in numerous campgrounds (Yosemite, Lake Cachuma, Bishop, San Clemente, Refugio, Malibu, Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, high and low desert areas of CA and many more).

Heavily wooded, nicely elevated fairly spacious campground with giant Sequoias everywhere.Brand new picnic tables and fire pits and paved road.Even the vault toilets are new, and that means that they are not flushing toilets.Considering the 'pit toilet' memories I have of other campgrounds, if you must go to a non flush toilet campground then this one is ALMOST worth goint.It is much much better, but still.

As you enter there is a magnificent meadow with a pond like Yosemite.It is close by to Grant Grove with a famous Sequoia landmark.There are hookups for RVS which I would definately want if we stayed here again.There are no flush toilets, sinks or showers.That is a deal breaker for me as I am sad because my family loved it t here so much.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a campground away from the road and at least three campsites from the bathroom.
