Sunset Campground is at Grant Grove near the entrance to Kings Canyon National Park. Campsites are spread through a mixed conifer forest. The campground makes an excellent basecamp for visiting Cedar Grove, Hume Lake, and, of course, all the attractions in Grant Grove. There are also two Group Camps for mid-size groups. The group camps require reservations while the standard family campsites are first come, first served.
With 157 campsites, Sunset Campground is the largest campground at Grant Grove. Campsites are fairly well separated, but without much ground foliage to offer privacy between sites. The Sunset Trail connects the campground with the nearby amphitheater and with Grant Grove Village (about ¼ mile).
Sunset Trail connects the campground to the heart of Grant Grove Village with grocery store, gift shop, post office, restaurant.
