“Second rate place at best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2010

As others have said, the guy running the place is nice- but Three Rivers Hideaway is second-rate at best. The electrical service doesn't have enough power for all the RVs, so beyond early afternoon you can forget running your A/C. Ever see that TV show "Green Acres" where they had an amateur goofy electrical system and they could never run all the appliances at the same time? Welcome to Three Rivers Hideaway. "Wifi" only works half the time, and very slow. Plus- lots of junky mobile homes and trailers; everybody is parked on top of everybody else. Noise. No privacy. Yeah, it's a hide away alright, and you won't want to hide here very long.

This review is for tent camping only. The staff were very friendly and we got a site right on the river. We traveled with a bunch of kids from 3 years to teens and they all loved it. They have a great swimming hole here. The only drawback is that the campground could do with some sprucing up. While the campsites are right on the river they area just inland of the sites is a huge open space that has been graveled over. It's too bad because if they would just plant trees here it wouldn't affect access and would even give the proprietor's more campsites. The other minor aesthetic problem is that there is a pile of building material and debris next to 3 of the sites. It’s only barely hidden by the trees.

I went here with coworkers and our families. I stayed in the cabin for 2 nights with my almost 3 yr old. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. It was nice to not have to walk anywhere to use the bathroom and shower or lug things around to take a shower. My cabin neighbors were quiet. I even texted my dad and told him I felt like I was in a retreat!! My friends camped in tents by the river. My other friends were in RV's. They had a great time too!! We went to the lake and lounged during the day!! I stayed the last night in the tent with them and the only bad thing was neighbors rocking out late at night and the 6:15am blaring music by other campers!!! I also got poison oak that was a few feet from their site!!

To make a long story short the staff, once you could find them, were pleasant but the rooms and grounds were horrible. It was so old and dirty that we literally slept in our sleeping bags on the bed and checked out after just one evening. We would have left sooner if we could have found a room avaliable. The "cabins" are just old tiny rooms with carpeting so old and dirty it is coming loose from the padding; we wouldn't walk barefoot in the place. However to be fair if you are tent camping this is a great spot, and it is right on the river along a nice swimming hole.

Be carefull with this place. The owner Dave is a super nice guy but the Hideaway is more of a hideaway for people hideing from the law. Run down RV's look like they have been there since the 1930'S. A few crack heads wondering around.If you need a place to hide from the law or the ex-wife this is the place to go!!!

Appreciated last minute availability and kitchen and AC. Inside, cabin was cute and seemed clean. Location is close-ish to the main road through town. One wall in bathroom seemed a bit dirty. Bed was comfy. Maybe 30 yards from cabin, a car was being worked on after about 8:30 am. We hiked in the parks. Did not see the river access. Not sure about value compared to cost as we really needed lodging at the last minute.

  • Liked — Availability and proximity to Sequoia National Park
  • Disliked — One bathroom wall seemed a bit dirty
