    Overview

    Overview

    The White River Campground sits in a stand of mature cedar along the banks of the White River at an altitude of 4,000 feet.

    The campgrounds are approximately 8 miles from the popular California Hot Springs.

    Natural Features:

    The Sequoia National Forest, located at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada in central California, takes its name from the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves on the Forest's lower slopes.

    The Forest comprises about 1.1 million acres, and elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls such as Salmon Creek Falls and Grizzly Falls.

    Recreation:

    Fishing and hiking, along with camp-side river wading, are popular pursuits. The river narrows to a creek-size width near the campgrounds.

    Facilities:

    This is a remote, tent-only site set back a distance from the road. Vault toilets, campfire rings and picnic areas are provided.

    This facility is operated by Sequoia Recreation, a division of California Land Management and comments are welcome; comment forms are available from campground hosts or online.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Visitors enjoy exploring the nearby sequoia groves and hot springs.

    The Giant Sequoia Mercantile offers a wide variety of books, maps, gifts, local art, camping supplies and other merchandise.
