We camped here over the 4th of July weekend in a tent. The campground is about 35 miles away from General Sherman Tree and the rest of the main attractions of Sequoia NP and about the same distance to Kings Canyon attractions. It's about an hour to drive those 30ish miles. General Grant Tree and trails are in the immediate vicinity. Pay showers ($1.00 for 3 minutes) are a couple minutes away at Grant Grove. The showers ran out of hot water quickly. The bathrooms at Azalea have no hot water or hand soap and while they were cleaned there was always toilet paper all over the floors, but it was a very busy weekend. We were in site 58 which is wonderful! It's very large, towards the back of the campground (which means very far from the bathroom which is a downside). It's shaded and quiet. Every site has a large bear proof storage box, a picnic table and a fire ring. All sites cost $18 per night and can be paid by cash, check or credit card by completing an envelope and dropping it in the drop box. The rangers seemed very lax, people were leaving food and all kinds of stuff out and nothing was done. It actually made us feel paranoid for faithfully locking everything up in the bear boxes. When we left our site for the day the only thing in sight was the tent, but we felt like we were the only ones following the bear safety rules. We will stay here again without a doubt. Except for on the holiday, it was pretty quiet with lots of sites available. Love not having to fight the crowds like at Yosemite.
We stayed here 4 nights in a tent. It goes without saying that it is in a beautiful location. It's on the west side of the park near the lake and the boat launch. There is a small store right across the street that opens at 9 AM where you can pick up a few food items or coffee and other things. Pay showers ($3.50 plus tax) are available at Fishing Bridge RV Campground 4 miles up the road. There is a larger general store with groceries and cafeteria style dining there that opens at 7:30 AM. The downsides: no hot water or heat in the bathroom. I don't quite understand why the full hookup park has showers and hot water but where they allow tents there isn't even hot water. In fact, the woman's bathroom faucets don't even stay on without holding them on. My husband said the man's bathroom did stay on. We were there early in the season and it got down to 28 degrees at night. Maybe during the height of the season this doesn't make much difference. As another reviewer stated I would not stay the entire trip in one campground again. It's hard to make a person understand how big this park is and it takes a lot of time to travel from sight to sight. It makes more sense to move from camp to camp and avoid backtracking a few hours drive to get back to your home site.
Very well run campground located right on the St. Joseph river in the small town of Berrien Springs. It's not near the freeway, about 20 minutes off I-94 and 10 minutes off US31 highway so it's more of a destination campground. We stayed in the new section which has full hookups and a brand new bathroom. I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice the campground is and in a beautiful setting. Perfect place to go for fishing. There are a couple playgrounds for kids. Quite a few permanent people but they are neat and it was super quiet. The sites were gravel and very level. I will be staying here again!
Very friendly owner, nice camp store offering soft serve ice cream, local wine, and firewood. Campground is hilly, so plan to do some leveling. Quite a few permanent campers in mostly fifth wheels and trailers. Everything was neat and well kept and very quiet. Grounds are dirt and grass with some sites having gravel. It rained the night we were there and turned the dirt areas to mud. Bathrooms are old, but clean. Shower had decent pressure and new shower curtains. Lots of hooks for hanging things, but no shelf in the shower area. The water smelled rusty when it first came on, but felt softened. Nice, clean swimming pool, play ground and fishing lake. Very easy on and off I-80. Outside the RV some traffic noise could be heard, but not enough to be a bother. No noise could be heard from inside the RV. Picnic table and fire ring at each site. Lots of trees so opening a slide will take careful parking. We would stay here again for the peace and quiet and the easy freeway access.
Very friendly staff. We arrived just before they closed at 8pm. Gravel pull through sites with picnic table. No shade available, bathroom had feces on the floor around the toilet. Bathroom and shower very old and needs updating. Easy on and off I-80. Very quiet. Nice gift shop on site. Would stay here again for a night while traveling through if the bathroom is cleaner.
Very friendly management. Gravel site with large concrete patio, picnic table and plenty of room to park a vehicle. Easy on and off I-15. Restrooms and showers very clean with good water pressure. The only reason I'm not giving a 10 is because there is no shade available, it looks like a parking lot for RVs.
The park is old, swimming pool was drained, no info given about wifi, very tight pull through sites. Ground is dirt/gravel with standing water in places. Old swing set with slide and wooden teeter-totter. Bathrooms need serious updating. Railroad tracks nearby and trains were going through during the night. The number one reason we would never stay here again is the people in this town are rude, from the teenager doing donuts and almost sliding into us, to the people blocking the entry ways as they stop to talk to each other in their cars. Way over priced and not welcoming by the town or the campground management.
