Group Campsites

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.

There are four group camping areas in the parks. Sunset, Crystal Springs, and Canyon View are for tent and car camping only - No RVs or trailers allowed in these group sites. RVs and trailers must camp in regular campsites nearby. RVs and trailers are allowed in Dorst Creek group sites.

All group camping areas are open from approximately June through September. All group camping areas are currently closed until the 2015 season begins. See below for reservation information.

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.

Parking is limited in each; carpool if possible. Each site has access to flush toilets, drinking water, a picnic table and a firepit with grill. Only one site per organization per day is allowed.
