Campsites on way to Kings Canyon? on 08/17/2013 09:05:32 MDT Print View

Appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Doing a trip in Kings Canyon soon but want to know if it is possible to camp somewhere along the way in proximity to the park? The catch is we may not get to camp until the late evening or so. Will be going in via 180 out of Fresno.

My intended destination is Roads End. Going to start there and come out at Lodgepole. However, I think my problem's resolved since I'll be able to leave earlier than I expected and mid-week. Should be able to get a walk-in campsite now, I hope.

There are a few en route. I've camped at cedar Grove (various campgrounds available) which is pretty close to the trailhead. Also camped at convict flat, which lets you hold off a lot of the windy drive in until the morning of departure. Good luck!

When do you have to get to Ceday Grove, mid week after Labor Day, to get a campsite?
