Atwell Mill Campground
Atwell Mill Campground is located in Mineral King in southern Sequoia National Park. Access to the tent-only campground is on the Mineral King Road which turns off Highway 198 a short distance east of Three Rivers. The campground is 19 long miles from Three Rivers. The winding Mineral King Road is steep and narrow. It is not recommended for RVs or trailers. Trailers are not allowed in the campground.
Atwell Mill Campground is set along the East Fork of the Kaweah River in an area that was once logged of its Giant Sequoias. Many of the huge stumps remain, while all around is a beautiful mixed forest of second-growth Sequoias, cedars, and pines. The campground has an open, park-like setting. Visitors to the area have only a short drive on to the end of the road where spectacular mountain scenery awaits them. A number of popular hiking trails lead up into the wilderness.
