Shake Camp Campground
Shake Camp Campground is in the Mountain Home Demonstration State Forest east of Porterville. The campground is about 21 miles northeast of Springville, much of the way via a narrow and winding road. However, the beauty of the Mountain Home area makes it worth the drive.
Mountain Home is known for its wonderful groves of Giant Sequoias, archaeological sites, interesting hiking trails, and fishing. Visitors to the campground with horses can take advantage of nearby public corrals. The corral nearest to the campground appears to be used most often, while those closer to the pack station have been neglected. Great riding trails lead out from the campground to destinations in Sequoia National Park such as Summit Lake, Maggie Lakes, and Hockett Meadows.
Shake Camp Campground has 11 sites for tents, and for small RVs and trailers. Horse trailer parking and campsites are available near the corrals. Picnic tables, fire rings, piped water, and pit toilets are provided. All campsites are first-come, first served.
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.
