This is simply a parking lot behind the Elks lodge and is for Elks members and their guests only. Since rvers have gotten the impression that it is an rv park for the public, there is now a volunteer host to sort things out. For Elks members there are a few large, level parking slots with 50 amp service and on the night we were there, a wednesday, dinner was available in the lodge. - mrosie

This is our second stay here after visiting almost exactly two years ago. No significant changes noted. Nothing fancy... just a safe place to spend the night with electric and water hookups (dump station on site).
We use cellular internet and found AT&T's LTE signal was surprisingly weak during this visit. Verizon's LTE signal was slightly stronger, but we found both AT&T and Verizon data speeds to be very slow.
There were maybe a dozen rigs here during our visit but plenty of spaces were left. There's a moderate amount of nearby road noise during the day and evening, but it died off during the night. - Gyropilot

Not much to add to the other reviews except that the park receives very little maintenance. The blacktop is starting to disintegrate and could use a good sweeping. The hook-ups are overgrown with limbs. There were only a small number of rigs  in the lot. Back-up as far as you can because the hook-ups are way in the back of the site. Reservations are not accepted or needed. I will stay here again because it is only a few blocks to the Visalia Country Club - a nice course with a great clubhouse. - bradydane2009

Nice park. Was a "mobile home" park but is transitioning to an RV park. Many full timers. Quiet, nice place. Air quality in Visalia is ranked among the worst in USA! - Captain Gort

A 55+ mobile home park with a few 'overnight' spots. Attendant very friendly. Sight was big enough but concrete slab was in bad shape. In town on a rather busy street but okay for one night. - OBZRV2

Not a resort but a perfect place for a short stay. Is an older mobile home park with a few RV spots to the left of the office. The park was able a provide a spot to accommodate our 43 ft and tow vehicle. No complaints about water, electricity or sewer. A bit noisy as we were quite close to I fairly busy road, but it worked out well for us. Office staff were nice. - Susan M

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. - TheBreeze

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. - redwake

We originally planned to stay at Lodgepole but opted for this because my Wife had enough of windy roads for the day. We liked it enough that we stayed here for the whole trip. When selecting a site be sure to take a good look around (and up) many trees are dying and are slated to be cut down. (they will have blue spray paint on them) The showers that a previous reviewer spoke of are no longer there. There are showers at Stony Creek seven miles away but didnt use. - Woosch

We camped here over the 4th of July weekend in a tent. The campground is about 35 miles away from General Sherman Tree and the rest of the main attractions of Sequoia NP and about the same distance to Kings Canyon attractions. It's about an hour to drive those 30ish miles. General Grant Tree and trails are in the immediate vicinity. Pay showers ($1.00 for 3 minutes) are a couple minutes away at Grant Grove. The showers ran out of hot water quickly. The bathrooms at Azalea have no hot water or hand soap and while they were cleaned there was always toilet paper all over the floors, but it was a very busy weekend. We were in site 58 which is wonderful! It's very large, towards the back of the campground (which means very far from the bathroom which is a downside). It's shaded and quiet. Every site has a large bear proof storage box, a picnic table and a fire ring. All sites cost $18 per night and can be paid by cash, check or credit card by completing an envelope and dropping it in the drop box. The rangers seemed very lax, people were leaving food and all kinds of stuff out and nothing was done. It actually made us feel paranoid for faithfully locking everything up in the bear boxes. When we left our site for the day the only thing in sight was the tent, but we felt like we were the only ones following the bear safety rules. We will stay here again without a doubt. Except for on the holiday, it was pretty quiet with lots of sites available. Love not having to fight the crowds like at Yosemite. - Mjoseph320

We camped several nights here while seeing Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP. We wanted to be on the North side of the two parks and were very happy here. Downsides were limited selection of sites for our 40' fifth wheel and most sites are not level in either direction. That being said, we loved being in the park and were happy to dry camp in order to do so. This was the only one of three NPS campgrounds that were open when we were there since it was early season. - Dareyou2move

Used to really love this place, until they took the dump station out. Now its kind of a drag to RV. Other than that it is o.k. Here for more than a weekend, - Kampzite

Was a little dusty in the group area. Most sites were not too level. Over all it was a good stay because of the holiday weekend. First come first served. - Spantz

Very pleasant and quiet park 30 minutes drive from Sequoia Visitors center. Gravel pull through lots and easy access for any size rig -we are 43 ft + 16 toad. Utilities are good although no cable and WiFi worked fine for us but we did not need anything more than basic use. Stayed a total of 4 nights and the location is right in the middle of orange groves, foothills, and some small towns. 15 minutes to Visalia for any larger stores. People working are fantastic and looked to be making several improvements on an ongoing basis. Great dog park and shaded sites. - MonacoIndy

We stayed 13 nights in a fifth wheel with a focus on visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. Note that my low rating on the actual site was because it was very off-level which prevented good drain on waste hose and because overhanging olive and pine trees prevented me from raising both Satellite and on-air antennas. This did not seem to be the norm for other sites. They offered to move us but we could not find a site that would work for the period of time we were there. Office staff nice. This is a beautiful area in the middle of citrus, olive, and nut groves. Harvest celebrations are late October. Very convenient to Sequoia and about a 50 minute slog through windy roads to Kings Canyon. You can go through Sequoia to get to KC or take the Dry Creek Rd from 216 just west of 190. Narrow winding roads that are much more enjoyable during the day time than at night for driving to and through the national parks. We found fresh figs and fresh ripe limes on the bush and harvested a few. Pool was closed. Note that October is late in the season and the National Park are shutting down campgrounds, services, facilities in preparation for the winter. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Small, rustic park with a mix of 30/50 amp FHU back-in/pull through sites and 5 RV sites with no hookups on one side of the park and tent camping sites on the other. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate, although trees could use a good trimming. Sites have decent separation, are gravel and wide but vary in levelness, so you may need leveling blocks. The park is very dusty and dry, and the only areas with green grass are the dog park and office area. Nice pool on opposite side of the park. Bathrooms were older and reasonably clean, with 3 toilets and 3 showers per gender. Laundry area on site with 3 washers and dryers (1 out of order during our stay). Office area is decent with small selection of gifts, snacks, ice and RV supplies. The office, laundry and bathrooms are located on a hill which may pose a problem for those that cannot navigate stairs or an incline. There is a port-a-potty in the RV section however. I agree with previous reviewer's posts regarding electrical issues, as six sites including our own (we were in site 10) lost power on Sunday. Maintenance reset the main breaker within 30 minutes, but voltage was low (113 volts in our rig). However, we had no issues before or after this incident and we were there a whole week. Staff were friendly and helpful. Park was very quiet during our stay even over Labor Day weekend and the park was nearly full. No cable available and we were only able to pull in 8 OTA channels. Good Verizon service. Free wifi provided but we didn't use. Park does not enforce their rule about dogs being on a leash. Daily rate is with Good Sam discount, but still expensive for what you get. Overall, a good park to use as a base for exploring Sequoia National Park. - RVIN 24-7

Princess Campground is located in Sequoia National Forest and is operated by California Land Management. The campground was very clean and quiet. The caretakers were amazing! They helped me fix several problems I was having with my trailer; loaning me a gas hose and giving me a couple of fuses. We stayed here in late June and the campground was only half full. There are no showers and the restrooms are pit-type toilets, but they didn't smell bad at all; they are new and were very clean. There is a dump station available at the campground with a minimal fee. The only drawback to this campground is the Bear box rule. You must store all food, coolers, etc out of sight and smell in the bear boxes, which are not available at every campsite, or in your vehicle. That said, there have not been any bear sightings at this campground in over two years. The campground is located at about 6000' above sea level, so the temperatures were very pleasant in the upper seventies. It's only a ten minute drive to Hume Lake, so if you can’t get a spot there, this campground is a very good alternative. We will definitely return! - JoshH

Very beautiful area just north of Grant Grove on Hwy 180. It is a U.S. Forest Service Campground with no hookups and vault type toilets. Must reserve sites through Reserve America. Could be a very nice campground if the very friendly staff would enforce the limit of 6 persons per site, many sites had 12 to 20 people and they were bathing at the limited water faucets. The vault toilet nearest to our site (#39) was emitting such a terrible odor that it was difficult to use it. Maximum length was 30 ft for RV's and some sites were much smaller. We stayed here Labor Day Weekend 2006. - raneill

We stopped here for an overnight stay. It is a fenced and gated location with power, water and sewer connections. The spaces are very small, basically on an asphalt parking lot located behind the livestock show area. It's not an RV park per se, I suppose its more for the fair personnel or attendee's. That being said, the staff on the phone and the night watchman were very helpful and polite. we arrived around 12:30AM and the Watchman met us at the gate and escorted us to the RV area. Since there was no one else around, we didn't have to unhook, which was a good thing. For an overnight stay, it was a good value. We were able to sleep securely, wake up with coffee and a shower before hitting the road again. It beat the heck out of a highway rest stop or Walmart parking lot. - JP-JP

As it was July, we knew it would be hot and it was. The campsites were on blacktop and the temp is 105 F., all in the sun. Ugh! Went to use the rest room and shower, big mistake. There was mosquito larvae in the toilet, at least the water was potable. Now for a nice cool shower. Turned on the cold water and waited and waited; it got hotter and hotter. Checked the tap out side same thing. With great wisdom the pipes were run in the peak of the roof where it was very hot, NO COLD WATER. Enjoy your stay!
This is a very substandard stopping place; you can't call it a Park as you have minimal amenities and are subject to the influx of animals right where you park. The animal pens are in the open air building right in front of the parking area. This facility was an afterthought of the fair board.
Don't stop, you will be better off at Wal-Mart. If you do stop, check it out before you pay. - Tom G Oregon unit

Due to upcoming events (several days away) we were directed to a lot behind the building for "Satellite Wagering". From the street to the lot where we were to park there were two locked gates. We had been given the combination to the locks. The lot had space for about a dozen rigs. All back in sites. Good hook-ups but it was all downhill from there! The surface of the lot was ground up asphalt mixed with cigarettes and dog droppings! It was disgusting and we will not stay there again. - User2209
