We had an excellent site here with full hookups. The campground host saw us come in and recommended it because of the size of our fifth wheel (32 feet). It was a perfect site, but I have to be honest, it was a "host" site that was open to the public after Labor Day. The park ranger and the campground host were very friendly and helpful. They really made you feel welcome. Now, the entrance to the campground is not great. My husband was concerned that we might have trouble with the hills and curves going out, but we made it just fine. Not sure a larger rig would have found it as easy. Also, the host said there were rattlesnakes in the area, but we didn't see any. This is a great park and we would stay here again if we were in the area. - Bobbi1948

We had a very different experience then the other camper. It might be nicer in the cooler months. We stayed mid July and it was really hot (100+). There were some trees, but not much shade, they were pretty dead trees. We stayed in site 18 (upper) with hookups. I was very upset when we pulled up and our spot was IN the parking lot. Yes: no camp site. The street also didn't go though so not sure how a bigger trailer would go though there without doing a 20 point turn. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot, so it was hard to get to our spot. It looks like anybody can just park here and walk to the lake, so that was probably why it was crowded. I also thought the lake was closer. It was too far to walk with 2 kids, so we just drove. Our power went out a couple times also. 100+ weather in a trailer with no air isn't fun. We paid for something that wasn't working. We also had to hike up a hill to get to our table and firepit. It wasn't right next to us. When went to hook up our water, it was across the street and the hose bib wasn't threaded. You couldn't hook a standard hose to it. It looked like the other sites were like that too. We did end up filling the tanks with a lot of work. They do have a dump site on the way out which was nice. We were also told we could get cell service here. The area we stayed would get cell service here and there. It would cut out when we would make a call. This campgroup is about 45 minutes from Fresno. We will never camp at this place again. Usually we are fine with campgrounds, but this place was bad. Also, you don't have much privacy. People in tents are right next to their neighbor campsites, practically in each others sites. We stayed two nights and the people we came with left the day they got here because of no power. Their site was 26 I believe, which was right across from us. It was hard to get the trailer level because it was on such an incline. They didn't feel safe in it. If you have the time, I would say to go Shaver Lake instead. We love camping at (another park) which is less then 2 hours away. You pay only a little bit more and you get full hookups. - googles

This is an older COE campground. We reserved site 14 with electric only. The only 3 sites with full hook ups are "walk-up" only, meaning first-come basis. We stayed in 14 for 4 days then switched to site 8 which does have full hook-ups and a beautiful view of the lake. It was very quiet and peaceful and the camp-host/kiosk attendant was very friendly. I was a little apprehensive about the steep climb getting back to the main highway but my coach pulled it fine. However, other than the 5 days of unexpected thunderstorms and rain (not their fault) they did find 5 rattle snakes in a few other campsites. So beware if you camp here. We will definitely camp here again. - P&Ax2onThe Go

Park was well maintained and runs along a small creek that feeds into the river. Beautiful place to sit and relax. Bathrooms were clean and park staff were great to work. - Shortclan

We stayed at Riverbend 4 Days/3 Nights. Very peaceful! Great staff! Several wineries and nice restaurants near by. Several easy access spaces for large RV's. Numerous large oak trees that provide great shade. We left our RV at the park and did day trips to Yosemite and Kings Canyon National Park. The Park is on the Kings River which is known for great trout fishing but the season was closed during our visit - James Entwisle

The RV Park is under new ownership and they are doing a great job. The park is filled with California Oaks and very peaceful. It's on the Kings River with a small Creek that runs through it. The restrooms have keypad entry, with a private shower and and toilet area which was very nice and very clean. The 180 highway is under construction and made it difficult to locate the RV Park. The park is a natural setting not all concrete and asphalt. Sequoia National Park is about 60 miles. - Mark DeWayne

We enjoyed out stay here although it was a little confusing on arrival. This is an old mobile home park ow being used as an RV park. Because of this, the hookups are not close to where RV hookups are. Sewer hookup was older style. Once we learned we could drive on the grass in any direction (not limited to backing in on the old, asphalt pads) and set up however best suited us, everything worked out fine! Manager was quite helpful once we located her trailer. The ground is quite uneven so beware. After all that, we ended up loving our stay here. Sites are spacious and grassy. No Wifi or TV, but that led to nice relaxing times outdoors! There is a nice laundry (2 washers $1.75) (2 dryers $1.50). This park is closest to north entrance of Sequoia NP and Kings Canyon NP. - webbsafari

This has been an enjoyable stay for us. That's because of the infectious friendliness and hustle of the two park managers. The strategic value of this campground is that it is closest to the north entrance of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. That is important to keep in mind because it does come with some quirks. For example, there is almost never anyone present in the park office (suggest you call about an hour out from arrival). Reservations are made by leaving a message; you will be called back. Next, as an old mobile home park, all the hook-ups are located inconveniently for RVs; however, management will allow guests to drive on the grass to better maneuver into position. Despite claims to the contrary, in 3 days I was not able to spot a single pull-thru site-they are all back-ins. The place is covered with beautiful green grass and the night sky is to die for. Sites have ample separation and utilities proved reliable. While there is no cable TV, we pulled 24 non-network channels. Wi-Fi is present but weak during busy times of the day/night. Verizon coverage was strong. We used a park near the south entrance to Sequoia in conjunction with this park to thoroughly explore Kings Canyon/Sequoia without driving forever. As a strategy, it worked well. We stayed 3 nights and our rent reflects a 20% military discount. This place is very basic and not fancy, but friendly service goes a long way! - TMN-15

Closest campground to North Entrance of Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks. Extremely friendly management and level back in grass and asphalt 30/50 amp full hook up sites. Have added a restroom, laundry and showers this year. Not much to look at in the park. It is mostly permanents and mobile homes, but well kept. Probably 40 overnight sites near the front. No amenities but good wifi and okay cell service. Hook ups are in the back of the sites so plan ahead. Would stay here again. - teepee51

Grass smelled like dog urine unfriendly staff. Very over priced and over rated! Would not recommend to anyone! - cyoung5

This is a beautiful campground in the Sierra Mountains with abundant pine trees and beautiful large camp sites. It is about a 20 minute drive to Shaver Lake, where we usually spend a day or two each year. There is a great creek for swimming (it is cold) and fishing. The fish and game service stocks the creek with trout regularly during the summer months. We have camped here for many years, typically for a week near the beginning of August, and will continue to visit on a regular basis. In the past couple of years, the restrooms have been redone, and now nearly all in the area have flush toilets and faucets. Showers are available at the Dinkey Creek Store for a nominal fee. The store also has some supplies and ice. The downside, no hookups and water has to be hauled to your site. There are not enough water faucets in each loop and you may have to hall your water 100 or so feet as the only faucets are near the restrooms. I carry a 5 gallon water jug and a small collapsible dolly for this purpose. There is also no cell service in Dinkey, but pay phones are available at the store. There is cell service in Shaver Lake as well as restaurants and grocery stores. Overall, if you don't mind dry camping and you love the serenity of the mountains you can’t beat Dinkey Creek. - ctaylor5

Beautiful park with large campsites with lots of mature trees in a mountainous area that may put a strain on some motorhomes. Nice creek for wading or fishing or near by Shaver Lake for all water sports.gets crowded on weekends. - PaPa Bear

This is a great place if your okay with dry camping. Sites are very spacious and setting is gorgeous. The only reason it didn't get 10 stars was that the closest dump station is 15 miles away at Edison Campground. The river is wonderful for fishing and play. Very clean campground. - User299

Shaver is a top notch stay as always. This time they were performing maintenance on the electrical grid so our loop's bathrooms were all closed. But overall it was quiet which we like and there was lots of hiking to be had! - JustImagine

Edison is a very well run campground with well maintained facilities, friendly and qualified camp hosts in each loop. The number of sites is amazing and any of them provide a short walk to the lake. It is great for families and campers who want it quiet after 10:00 pm. Plus, even altitude, it is open year round. - JustImagine

The office lady is very friendly and helpful. The site was spacous, clean, and quiet. The roads are paved, but sites are dirt. The powdered dirt that gets in and on everything. Bring lots of mats! This site had lots of room for pop-up canopies and tents also.
The cable TV is excellent and I didn't buy their wifi as my Verizon worked just fine.
The last 20 miles of Hwy 168 is STEEP but the reward of this campground and beautiful lake is well worth the trip. - MJHP*28

Friendly couple of people managing the place - very helpful getting set up. They assign the sites when you get there. Sites are very close together, but there are lots of trees scattered out, and our site was very level. No picnic tables or fire rings, and the campsite surface was dirt. But the hookups worked fine.
Fairly quiet at night, but there were a couple of groups of loud talkers after 10pm with no enforcement by management. They were quiet by 11:30.
Bathrooms were kind of old and dirty at times. They were out of toilet paper once in the ladies room. No place for kids to play - gravel driveways. But there are some woods just across the street which our kids enjoyed.
Overall it just seemed like you didn't get much for the top dollar ($45/night) price. But Shaver Lake is in high demand in the summer and especially holiday weekends, so I'm sure that's the reason. It's about half monthly renters and lots of big rigs. Not bad if you don't plan to hang around the campsite all day. - richang

The Park is nice and shaded. I felt like we were staying in the forest. I love the town and the staff was great. This is a great place to escape the city and enjoy the mountains. - angel75

This was a convenient park to stay in while exploring the Shaver Lake area. The sites are all dirt so you need to watch the dust and bring mats. You can walk into town or to the shore of Shaver Lake. No amenities (cable or Wi-Fi) since it is mostly long term residents or folks who leave their RVs and come up on weekends. We got cell but no Wi-Fi. Nice friendly managers. It's impossible to get into Camp Edison as they book a year out. This worked well for short notice. - Hitch2go
