Great location in Grant Grove. Stayed in site 67 with 31' fifth wheel. This is about as large a trailer as you'd want to bring into this campground (or anywhere else in KCNP). The site was not level... 3 degrees off front-to-rear and 2 degrees off side-to-side. Most other trailer sites are also not level. Good picnic table, fire pit and bear box at each site. Bathrooms are clean and plentiful throughout the campground, as are unthreaded water spigots. No hookups at sites. Pay showers are actually not in the campsite but at the visitor's center/market complex about 1/4 mile away along a trail (or driveable). Very family-friendly with kids on bikes. Drought and beetles have killed about a third of the large trees in this campground, unfortunately. We camped at Sunset Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a market in Grant Grove with basic groceries and camping supplies. The drive to Road's End is worthwhile, the road descends into the canyon with overviews of the confluence of north and south forks of King's River, and the river flow is dramatic this year. There is a pleasant 2 mile round trip trail from Sunset campground to the General Grant tree and a grove of other impressive giant Sequoia trees. Or you can drive to a parking area near the grove.

Our site was close to the entrance & we had good connectivity. Be careful to look for large rocks along the park roads when pulling you rig & turning- some of them are very close to the road edge.

I stayed on labor day and got the last large site. I showed up 2 days early (first come first serve). The big sites are up front, and there aren't many of them. I made the mistake of following the signs to drive all the way around in a circle to get to them. The road gets tight for a large R. I was stressing a little because some of the trees are very close to the road. I'd just back right into one of the sites up front if you have a big trailer and you're staying here. Don't drive the circle; you wont fit in any of the more scenic sights. Beware of huge falling pine cones; a neighbor got a dent in his truck. As with all the other grounds in this park there are no hook ups, but some sites have water spigots. Bring a long hose if you're staying a few days and make friends with your neighbors if you need to use their spigot. The rangers are very friendly, and the sites up front are walking distance to the amphitheater which had a program every night. The next camp is Azalea and you can actually walk over to it. They have quite a few more large sites for larger RV's. There is no dump site near these ground; we hauled ours home. The restrooms were what you would expect from a state park, not exactly clean, and there are no showers. We camped at Sunset Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Very close to many trail heads and the amphitheater, which holds nightly lectures during the summer. Short walk to the visitor center, gift shop and market. The park was on a high bear alert but we didn't see any. There is a lot of other wildlife to see though. We camped at Sunset Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
