OverviewHume Lake Campground is a popular facility along Hume Lake, one of Sequoia National Forest's most visited destinations. The area offers year-round recreational opportunities, including fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
The campground is situated among towering Sequoia and Jeffrey pines on the northern end of Hume Lake, which was built to support a long-ago commercial logging operation. It once supplied water to the longest lumber flume transporting logs to the Central Valley. The elevation is 5,250 feet.
Hume Lake is a year-round recreation destination. During warmer months, visitors can enjoy fishing, non-motorized boating, hiking and mountain biking.
The campground offers single and double-family campsites, some of which have views of Hume Lake. Foot trails lead to the lakeshore. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are flush toilets and drinking water.
Bearskin Grove offers the rare opportunity to photograph an entire mature sequoia in one frame. Hiking through the grove, visitors will find a mix of young and old sequoias, including about 50 trees that measure over 6 feet in diameter. Take Tenmile Road (Forest Road 13S09) to Forest Road 13S02, then 13S98 to enter the grove.
