This is my kind of RV park. No frills, but everything you need and spacious sites. There are few shade trees, but the ones that are there are good. This was previously a mobile home park, but it is now an RV park and the seasonal/long-term tenants are separated from the overnight area. Very well laid out. Work is still ongoing to update this to a traveler's campground, but everything is there and the price is right. There are full hookups although they could use some work. Due to the spigot choice, it was difficult to hookup my water hose. The sewer dump was basically a rubber waste-pipe reducing fitting...nothing to screw on a standard sewer elbow or fitting or that a sewer hose would stay attached to. It did not appear that other nearby sites had this setup, so maybe it was only my site. The electricity was strong and kept the A/C going all day (100+ when we stayed). All hookups are at the rear and to the right. This posed no problem to me, but those with trailer connections in front of the axles might have issues reaching the connections. The Wi-Fi was recently upgraded so it was quite good. I expect as this becomes a more popular park that the usual slow-down of the WiFi will happen here like other campgrounds. Verizon 4G was strong enough to be useful here in case that the WiFi is out of range or slow. I never met a worker in person. Sites are not pre-assigned, just take an "overnight" site that isn't occupied when you arrive. Self-check-in is at the office. Payment can be by many forms including PayPal/Venmo (kudos for this!) or credit / check / cash, but you have to find the camp host if you want to do credit or cash. In the end, for the location, price, and amenities this is now my go-to park when I want to visit Kings Canyon or Sequoia. The NP entrance is about a 35-minute drive from this campground. - WineStream

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

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

We stayed 3 nights. We had to go to a family function in Fresno and this was a great place to stay. Jerry the manager is a funny guy and very helpful! The place is clean and there is lots of grass which helped keep the heat down. Lots of space between campsites. The only thing that was missing is a pool, it would have felt nice in the heat! - FromColorado

We spent one night at Riverbend RV Park on our way to Kings Canyon and Sequoia's National Parks. The park hosts were very friendly and gave us a nice welcome bag. There was lots of shade from the oak trees with a nice creek running through the campground, which made our stay really comfortable. My wife and I got to enjoy couple rounds of Bocci Ball. We were told that the game courts were recently completed. We had such a great time that we are planning to come back soon. - RichardandIrene

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

I saw where someone posted the front gate was 12' tall. When I called about reservations the manager told me to use the back gate. Normally it is locked but he arranged to open it when I arrived. They are developing this park. Everything is clean and well maintained. The road is very curvy. Limited site lengths. - Beas

We looked for a good RV spot close to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, and Sequoia Resorts looked like the place to be! Having read the campgroundreviews.com notes, we knew we would fit under the 12-foot limit they have for RVs (we are 11-feet high), so we reserved six nights there. Office manager was very nice, very helpful. They only have six spots for RVs, but they are all full-hookup, grassy and fairly level. There is a single bathroom/shower; a laundry room with free washer/dryer; and nearby trash cans. They have a lake on the property -- which we walked to, to look at -- but I'm not sure what the rules are about using it. Next to site #6 is a trampoline that kids seemed to love. WiFi was fair. There is no picnic table or fire-pit/grill, but there is a community area with tables/chairs and grill that is right next to the RV sites. They had a DVD library, free to use. We could get 2-3 bars of Verizon. Closest services (i.e. stores) are in Fresno, about an hour away. The roads getting to Sequoia Resort are very, very narrow, are very twisty, and many have blind curves so you can't see what's coming and they can't see you. I down-rated it a bit because of the height limit and difficult roads to get there, but the Resort itself is very nice. Overall, we really liked Sequoia Resort and would stay there again. - RobtL

First, getting here is an adventure, closer to the nightmare side, CA Rt 245 is a VERY narrow VERY winding back road, luckily we met only one car, but with our 29' class C & toad,we had no major problem getting here or leaving, other than the white knuckles. This campground only has about 6 dirt sites side by side, with no separation, they are all full hookups and fairly level, and while there are some trees, there is very little shade at certain times of day.
The owners are extremely friendly & helpful, while there is no laundry facility, the owner let us use her private machines for free.
This is the closest campground to Sequoia National Park, with full hookups. It is very quiet and peaceful.
There are no picnic tables or fire rings at each site, but there is a sort of "community" area with tables and a grill. All in all, would probably stay here again. - bukhrn

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

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

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
