Methuselah Group Campground
Methuselah Group Campground in the Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest east of Porterville. Mountain Home is best known for its groves of Giant Sequoias, some of the trees among the largest in the world. The nearby Methuselah tree stands over 200 feet tall and has a diameter of over 24 feet. The campground is about 16 miles northeast of Springville, much of the way via a narrow and winding road.
Methuselah Group Campground has a single camping area for groups from 20 to 80 people. With space only for 1 or 2 small RVs, the majority of the camping is in tents. Picnic tables, fire rings, and vault toilets are provided, but there is no drinking water. The group campsite must be reserved.
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, firewood should be obtained locally.
