    Overview

    Overview

    Wishon Campground straddles two forks of the Tule River in the Sequoia National Forest, sitting at an elevation of 4,000 feet. A creek runs through the site into the Tule River, which originates in the Golden Trout Wilderness.

    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:

    There are many hiking and fishing opportunities in the area, including the Rose Grave Trailhead. Visitors can wade in the river at Wishon Fork.

    Facilities:

    This year-round campground is configured around several loops and offers about 27 reservable campsites. Vault toilets, picnic areas and campfire rings 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:

    There are six small remnant giant sequoia groves in the area, including Wishon, Silver Creek, Burro, Maggie Mountain, Middle Tule and Upper Tule Groves.

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