I will never go back to this campground again. Booked a week and two large loud groups came in and were drunk, loud and were using and selling drugs right near our campsite. The groups merged making one super group which used profanity, discussed sex, and actually had sex out in the open. Even though there was a supposed quiet...

Being fond of somewhat secluded and natural settings, these campsites were of decent size/layout, yet without much privacy from other sites or the roadway. It was in a beautiful stand of trees with a gorgeous stony creek nearby (as advertised) and a resident deer with her baby faun foraging daily, but the campgrounds were by well maintained for the price...

My family went on a cross country camping trip and visited 10 national parks. Stony Creek campground was one of the most beautiful places we camped by far. We stayed in May so it was still pretty cold but the campground was still mostly full. None of the sites are too close together which makes for a better experience. We...

Dorst Creek, it is named, is maybe 15 minute drive north of the main village where lodgepole campground is situated. At the end of August, not exactly the start of low season, yet this really large and well-spaced campground was very empty, partly I think due to the wild fire that had been going on in Kings Canyon, which was...

When my boyfriend and I arrived at our campground, we were a little worried about how close the campsites were. Luckily, we had a walk in campsite which meant we were secluded.. and had the soothing sounds of the nearby creek to fall asleep to. The campsite was perfect for star gazing- it was the week of the Perseid meteor...

We went camping to beautiful Sequoia National Park for our Anniversary this September and booked a site at Lower Stony Creek Campground. After being there I can say it was the best decision I made. The sites were spacious, well kept, and calm. There are fire pits to cook in, pretty big bear lockers to store food in , and...

This review is for upper stony creek located right across from stony creek campground. This campground is small and peaceful. Think theres about 21 sites one loop and one restroom vault toilet and about 3 water spigots. No paved road so expect dust too fly your way when vehicles pass by. Sites 15-20 are closest too the river. Pay Showers...

We stayed at Stoney Creek on the weekend before Fourth of July. The campsite was small, about 50 spots. I believe our spot (23) was the best! A forest of trees right behind us, far from the neighboring site (which was a double site) and not too close to other neighbors on the right. This site was completely shaded!! Slight...

“We stayed at camp site 17 which was nice. I would recommend sites 9, 11, or 12 if you have kids who like playing around on big boulders. There are also walk-in sites behind those drive in sites that are right next to the creek, a small waterfall and a swimming hole.”
