Attention: Sequoia and Kings Canyon is experiencing a significantly low snow water content year. We anticipate that Dorst Creek Campground may run out of water this camping season. We will no longer be taking advanced reservations for the 2015 camping season; however reservations already made will still be honored. If the need to close the campground does arise, we will help those campers with existing reservations find a different campsite in a different park campground at no additional cost or provide a full refund. If you have any questions please call 559-565-3341.

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.
