Potwisha Campground is located 4 miles (6.5 km) from the Sequoia National Park entrance. Situated along the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River under an open stand of oaks, the campground is hot in the summer and usually snow-free in the winter.
As soon as recreation.gov is able to post the 2015 dates you will be able to make reservations starting 6 months in advance of the date you would like to camp for standard sites, and 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 may be added over the next few months. This page will be updated as soon as details are available.
You are required to store food properly in order to protect bears. Learn more about bears and food storage in the parks.
