OverviewDorst Creek Campground is located in the breathtaking Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in central California's rugged Sierra Nevada range.
The campground is perched at an elevation of 6,700 ft., on the banks of scenic Dorst Creek. Several meadows surround the campground and a number of small streams flow through the site.
A handful of popular day-hikes begin from or near the campground, including the trail to Lost Grove, a 57-acre grove containing 15 beautiful sequoias.
Lodgepole pine, red fir, and shrubs forest the campground, while towering groves of giant sequoias and craggy granite peaks dot the landscape.
Dorst Creek lies in the Giant Forest region of Sequoia National Park, where forty miles of trails invite visitors to immerse themselves in the majesty of the ancient groves.
The campground is very popular with tent and RV campers alike. It has paved roads, flush toilets, and drinking water, but no electricity.
The inspiring Giant Forest Grove, General Sherman Tree, General Grant Tree, and Tunnel Log are just 10 miles away, as well as the informative Giant Forest Museum and Beetle Rock Education Center.
