Camp Four and a Half Cabin located along the King's River at an elevation of 1,100 feet in the Sequoia National Forest. The campgrounds sits within the Sequoia National Monument, about 60 miles east of Fresno, California.

The cabin was built in 1957. Until the early 1980s, the cabin was used as a residence and office by various Forest Service rangers and their families. The cabin has been restored to the current condition through the efforts of dedicated volunteers and employees.

Natural Features:

The cabin is a stone's throw from King's River. In the spring the valley is ablaze with wildflowers.


Guests can fish, swim, kayak or white water raft in the Kings's River. The river is swift and cold and can be dangerous at peak flows in April through June but becomes very tranquil in late summer and fall. There are three whitewater rafting companies that provide guided trips on this section of the Kings River from mid April through early July. The section of the Kings River from Garnet Dike to Pine Flat Lake is open to fishing year round with a two fish limit. A fishing permit is required; (click here for details).

There are trails on both the north and south side of the river for hiking and horseback riding and roads for off-road vehicles.

The area is great for wildlife viewing, bird watching and artistic pursuits such as painting and photography.


The cabin is equipped with a generator to provide electricity, a heater and swamp cooler.

The two-bedroom, one-bath cabin has beds for six people, with two twin beds, a queen and a double hide-a-bed, all with pillows. The kitchen has propane stove and refrigerator, kitchen table and benches and dishes pots and pans. The living area offers a couch and reclining chair.
