Spacious campground in the national forest right outside Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.

Situated just off the stretch of road that connects the two sections of Kings Canyon, Princess Campground is the perfect home base for exploring both Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. In addition to its central location, it takes reservations, so you can book a roomy spot well in advance of the summer season. We stayed in spot 49, which had enough room for at least 4 more tents and backed up to the Indian Basin Grove Interpretive Trail that runs through a giant sequoia stump meadow, adjacent to the campground. AKA easy access for golden hour photo-taking.
