Some of the opening/closing dates for facilities and visitor services in the parks may change due to weather and/or other circumstances. Please call 559-565-3341 BEFORE you plan to visit.

Crystal Springs campground is located 4 miles (6 km) from Kings Canyon Park entrance in the Grant Grove area. The campground is situated under open stands of evergreen trees.

As soon as recreation.gov is able to post the 2015 dates you will be able to make reservations up to 1 year in advance for group sites. We anticipate recreation.gov will be updated with this information soon. Additional first-come, first-serve dates outside of reservation dates be added over the next few months. This page will be updated as soon as details are available.
