Mineral King Campgrounds

Mineral King Valley in Sequoia National Park
Mineral King Valley

A narrow, winding road leads to the Mineral King area and its two campgrounds. The road to the area is open from late spring through fall. Mineral King is connected to the rest of Sequoia National Park only by trail. RVs and trailers are not recommended on Mineral King Road and are not permitted in campgrounds here.

Both campgrounds are for tent camping only; are first-come, first served; and have vault toilets. Supplies, showers, and food are available nearby at the Silver City Resort (on private land).
