Cold Springs Campground
Cold Springs Campground is located in Mineral King in southern Sequoia National Park. Access to the tent-only campground is via the Mineral King Road which turns off Highway 198 a short distance east of Three Rivers. The 25-mile, winding road to Mineral King is steep and narrow. It is not recommended for RVs or trailers. Visitors to Mineral King are rewarded with spectacular scenery, waterfalls, and a number of exciting trails leading up into the surrounding high country.
Of the 31 tent-only campsites at Cold Springs, 9 of them are walk-in sites. Most of the sites are nicely shaded among the trees and offer good privacy. The East Fork of the Kaweah River flows past the campground.
Marmots are common at Mineral King and have been known to crawl into cars and chew through radiator hoses. Read Sequoia National Park's information about marmots and how to protect your vehicle from damage.
