Canyon View Group Campground

Canyon View Group Campground is located at Cedar Grove near Road's End in Kings Canyon National Park. The campground has sites for medium-size groups and for larger groups. The tent-only campsites are along the South Fork of the Kings River in an open conifer forest. Cedar Grove features soaring cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, and the mighty Kings River. Visitors to the area cast their eyes upward to the summits of 8,700-foot North Dome and 8,500-foot Grand Sentinel which tower 3,500 feet above the canyon floor.

The campground is located between Sentinel and Moraine campgrounds. Extra bear boxes are located near the entrance to the campground in case those provided at the campsites are not adequate. All food and scented items should be stored in bear-proof boxes.
