  2. Brent Wimmer says:

    How many people are allowed per camp site? How many vehicles?

    • Hi Brent,
      At Hume Lake campground you can park two vehicles per site, but your reservation only pays for one. The extra vehicle is $5 per night. Up to 8 people are allowed per campsite.

  3. How many tents are allowed on a single camp site?

    • Hi Bob,
      Hume Lake campsites can accommodate 2 vehicles and 6 people. You can have as many tents per site as you can fit within your campsite boundaries.

  4. Are there showers at the campsites? Thanks!

    • Hi Dee,
      There are no showers at Hume Lake campground.

      • Are there any nearby showers outside of the campground that we can go to? If so, where? Thanks!

      • Hi Jen,
        There are not any showers at or nearby Hume Lake Campground. Probably the closest is at Lodgepole in Sequoia-Kings Canyon NP (about 33 miles). Stony Creek Lodge may also showers (for a fee). It’s a little closer (about 19 miles away).

  5. Does each campsite have a bear-proof storage locker?

  6. Can we sleep in the car in the camp grounds?

  7. Hi Camp Ranger,
    Is campsite #11 at Hume Lake reservable? I received a confirmation email from recreation.gov (with payment processed), however, the email includes a Campsite Notice that states “this is a non-reservable site” Hoping to confirm before driving out there next week.
    Thanks!

    • Hi Will,
      That’s strange. I just double checked Hume Lake campgrounds – site #11 – and it is reservable online. I recommend shooting them a message on their contact page to confirm, but I don’t think there will be an issue.

  8. What if we have a third car? Is there a place to park it close by or in the campground? Even paying a fee is understandable acceptable… Thank you.

    • Hi Dave,
      I’m not aware of any overflow parking area at Hume Lake campground. And they are pretty strict about just having 2 vehicles per site (single family campsites) and 4 vehicles per site (for double sites).

  9. How many first come first serve sites are there at Hume lake? Thank you. I tried to look on the web site but cannot seem to find that info…

    Hello
    This the first time that I’m going to visit this camping and will like to know how big can the tent be
    Thanks Maria Martinez

    • Hi Maria,
      You’re going to love camping at Hume Lake campground. Most of the campsites are quite large and can accommodate tents that are 10×12 or even a little larger. Which campsite did you reserve and I can double check.
