Princess Comments & Reviews
Visited Princess Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to Princess?
Princess Campground is a peaceful site. Located in between Hume Lake, and Grant Grove it’s the perfect setting to explore the best of Sequoia and Kings National Forest. Hume Lake is a 10-minute drive up a road with a general store, small restaurant that sells burgers, chicken fingers, and ice cream. You can also rent paddle boats, hike around the lake, or sit on the lawn for a nice picnic. Grant Grove is about a 10-minute drive down the road with scenic views. Pack a quick lunch and enjoy the easy hike around Grant Grove. Princess campground also has it’s own trial located at the entrance of the campsite. The trail offers a beautiful view of the meadow next to the site.
Each site offers a table, and a fire ring. Remember to bring your bikes so that you can take a ride around the campground. Loops have several vault toilets, that are cleaned regularly by site staff. No showers, but you are in the middle of the forest so please remember what camping is really about. A quick bird bath in your own make shift shower can easily freshen you up. Each Saturday night during the summer, the campground offers a fun story time/or bird event at at the amphitheater. This is our favorite campground to get away and enjoy what John Muir loved in his past time.
Hi my name is Maria. we are planning a family reunion this summer at princess campground, and was wondering if we can rent the amphitheater for a few hours in the day time?

The favorite campsites at this campground don’t come close to what we’d pick. As tent and airstream campers, we have traveled all over the country. We stayed at site 60 in a tent and while it was big and had a very cool huge sequoia stump on it, we had a hard time finding a level area to pitch our tent so we could maintain some privacy as this site is surrounded by other campers and the best places for a tent are right on the road. We did, however, create a level area to pitch behind the big tree. The very best sites for pitching a tent (or multiple tents): site 46, 49, 39 – tons of privacy, far from the main road and level! Site 39 is also a great place for a small travel trailer or camper van. I wouldn’t stay in site 60 again and have no idea why some of these listed are favorites.
Thanks for your feedback on the favorite campsite list! Our photographer will jot down his/her favorite while taking photos. They base it on location (view, next to water, etc.), size, privacy (away from restrooms/trails) – compared to other campsites. I’ll definitely take another look at this list and update it based on your feedback. Thanks again!
