Definitely not Big Rig friendly! I am a 45 footer and used this site but failed to read the information on this park. I drove up and down the winding roads only come to find out I couldn't fit!! The information I got from Reserve America was not accurate --- was told I had plenty of room. Grrr. So, I stayed overnight in the overflow parking lot and left the following day. I only looked around the area but it looks to be a great camping site. Enjoy! We camped at Sentinel Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Most of the sites are fairly level but not very large. This campground has only a few pull-through sites that would accommodate a vehicle much longer than 22 ft. There are some sites closer to the river that are more shaded. Gorgeous views on the drive in and nearby! We camped at Sentinel Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby Cedar Grove Lodge has some food supplies, a restaurant and bar, etc. There are showers available in this area too. Swimming in the river is possible when it's running too swiftly. Drive the few miles past the campground to Zumwalt meadow for an easy and scenic hike. No cell phone service out here, probably no TV either. Bring your own entertainment and be prepared to disconnect from the modern world.

Right by the river. Very shady and quiet. Terrific place to relax. Well located for hiking in the canyon. Now for the minor downsides: there is a meadow in the middle -- probably buggy in summer, but not in early spring or autumn. Long drive on a twisty highway to get down to campground from San Joaquin Valley, but road is not too steep or too narrow. Campground is not big-rig friendly. Interior roads are very bumpy and narrow. Pads are not level. A few low-hanging branches here and there. Bathrooms are clean but very basic -- no showers. We camped at Sentinel Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
