South Fork Campground Overview
South Fork Campground and its access road were heavily and extensively damaged by floods and landslides from winter storms. The campground is closed until further notice.
This small, primitive campground is in a remote area of the foothills on the South Fork of the Kaweah River, away from main park highways and features. The dirt road to this area is completely impassable to vehicles due to extensive damage from winter storms. There is no potable water here. Trailers and RVs are not permitted.
Directions to Campground
Take Highway 198 to the town of Three Rivers. Five miles before the main Sequoia park entrance, turn onto South Fork Road and travel east for 12.3 miles. The paved road ends a short distance before you reach South Fork Campground, and a dirt road continues to the campsites, ending at the Ladybug Trailhead. The dirt portion of the road is rough, and cars with low clearance are not recommended.
