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

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

Former mobile home park. Utilities located on rear on passenger side (typical for Mobile Home but backwards for RV). Office being renovated and manager hard to contact. Very spacious sites but owners are far away and are slow to it fix up. Did not see any pull-thru. Quite park. - Baddad53
Jun 2017 - $35.00
The previous reviewer said it all...confusing layout of park, but it is more spacious than most. The manager on site is very friendly, but hard to contact and rather disorganized. The utilities worked fine but are in the back of the sites. There are really no amenities to speak of; Verizon signal was strong. Of course the big draw is the closeness to the parks; after all, that is why we are here. - dbcordello

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

The campground is beautiful, very well maintained. Sites are large and bathrooms are clean, even though they are pit toilets. However, if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful weekend, don't come here! The loud music and screaming from 2 different camp sites went on until 2 AM and loud rap music started again early in the morning. This was going on right across from the host so I'm not sure how they didn't hear it but nothing was done until the next day when we complained. I wish they were as diligent about enforcing the rules as they are about explaining them to you when you check in! Some people seem to care absolutely nothing about other people. This is a party place. Do not come here to relax. - Lori LCSW

This was a beautiful park close to Shaver Lake. Most sites do not have a view of the lake but the lake was very close to all spots and the boat ramp was very close as well. It was off-season so the park was almost empty but the sites were well spread-out. Beautiful hikes all around. - SantaCruzer

Decent campground located on Shaver Lake. This lake is a haven for water sport enthusiasts so the campground is filled with a very energetic crowd. In fact they had so much energy that it was impossible to sleep some nights because of the late night parties. But this park is a very short walk to very nice beaches located in a cove of the lake. That proved to make up for the constant chaos that the campground was filled with. The lake itself is wonderful and I am sure that when it's not the peak of summer, the campground is much quieter too. - MS.K

We camped here on April 1 and 2 in #116. First the positives: great bathrooms, spacious sites, beautiful lake view, and the space to back our pop-up camper was just right. Negatives: the host was rude. There were kids next to us who were late getting out and he was very rude to them. Also, no one comes around to clean up the sites after people check out. I don't understand why they make you check out at noon and new people can't check in until 2 if they're not cleaning the sites. There was all kinds of trash left behind and no one came to clean up. The other negative was the trash at the dumpsters. We got there Saturday afternoon and the dumpsters were already all pretty full then. By the time we left Sunday night the dumpsters were OVERFLOWING and there were bags of trash on the ground around the dumpsters too. The wind was blowing so the trash was blowing all over. Mostly it is a very nice campground and I recommend it. Just be sure you're out by noon or you'll get yelled at. - Lori LCSW

Booked through ReserveAmerica. There are few RV parks in the area and the only one decently rated (Blackstone) said they did not have room. I needed to be in the area for a family matter or I would not have stopped in Fresno.
Our GPS instructions dropped us off in the middle of the road with no campground in sight. This was a winding mountain road. We continued on and found the closed ranger station a few miles up ahead with a sign saying "Campground 2.5 miles". There was no more information to pick up. I wound up taking a photo of the posted signs on my iPhone, then we followed the road to find a really nice set of campgrounds. The RV area was a mile or so further on.
All sites are back-in, with a steep grade down. We tried several in our 35-foot diesel pusher MH but could not get level. We wound up just not leveling, so the whole time our back end was lower than the front end. We saw a few other MH that had gone in front end, but we would not have been able to reach the sewer with our current equipment.
This park had a lot of RVs, but the campsites around were mostly empty. This made for a nice area to walk our dog and we wound up using those bathrooms because they were clean and the RV park filthy. - Slkeyes

This review covers the Meadows camping area of Millerton Lake SRA. The Meadows area has the RV/hook up sites. Full hook ups, W/P/S are in the RV Loop, sites 120-144; sites 117, 118 and 119 have W&P, no sewer, but there is a dump station that you pass on the road to Meadows. The RV sites are arranged in a loop.
Sites 120-144 are basically just large asphalt spaces. Plenty of room for an RV and a large vehicle or two small vehicles parked either in front of the RV or along side if you don't want to put out the awning.
Behind the RV site, off asphalt is a picnic table and fire ring. Sites 132, 133, 120 and 144 are ADA sites. There is quite a bit of extra room at these sites, and the picnic areas also have a wood canopy over the picnic area.
Sites 117-119 do not as much asphalt as the other RV sites and also have the picnic canopy. These sites will still accommodate a large RV. Sites 117-119 more closely resemble a campsite than the other asphalt full hookup sites.
The camp host is at the entrance of the RV loop.
There are bathrooms/coin operated showers at each end of the RV loop. I didn't use the showers, but I noted that they were clean and attended to. All bathrooms and showers are individual rooms.
The non-RV sites all have water (spring loaded spigot, no threads) and are ample and all seem to have canopies. If you don't absolutely have to have power and sewer and can get buy with water in our tank, these sites are actually very nice, some overlooking the lake.
As of 4/3/2016 the lake is nearly full again with the water level just shy of the spillway. When the snow cap melts later in the Spring the lake will probably release water.
The comfort station at the entrance to the loop has a water machine similar to what you see in front of supermarkets, .50 cents a gallon. The machine also sells ice, 8 lbs for $5.
The roads to the campground are in good shape.
No WiFi, but cell service (Verizon) had a strong signal. - Jmaellis

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
