Overview

Overview

Hidden View Campground is located at Hensley Lake in the foothills of central California, 50 miles north of Fresno. The lake area offers many recreational opportunities, such as swimming, water skiing, fishing and hiking, and attracts a growing number of visitors per year. It is within a short drive to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, as well as Sierra National Forest.

The 1,500-acre lake was created by the construction of Hidden Dam on the Fresno River. With over 20 miles of shoreline, it is a popular vacation spot for families and those who enjoy water activities.

Natural Features:

Hidden View is located on the shores of Hensley Lake and is surrounded by the oak woodlands of the Sierra Nevada foothills, offering a mixture of sun and shade.

The area has significant historical value as it was once home to the Miwok and Yokut Native American Tribes.

Recreation:

The area is packed with opportunities for outdoor fun. Campers enjoy boating, water skiing and fishing on the water. Bank fishermen have easy access to the lake's shoreline.

Lake fishing is particularly good in the coves where largemouth black bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish are found in abundance. Rainbow trout are stocked in the lake each winter.

On the other side of the lake, there is a swim beach, a disc golf course and a hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trail. One hiking trail is located within walking distance of the campground.

Educational programs are offered at the campground's amphitheater every Saturday night during summer months.

Facilities:

Hidden View campground provides 55 campsites including two group campsites. Some sites have electric hookups, and all campsites are located within walking distance of the lake and boat ramp.

Nearby Attractions:

Yosemite National Park is about one hour north, and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are about 1.5 hours southeast of the facility.
