The Holey Meadow Campground is located less than 15 miles from the California Hot Springs in the Sequoia National Forest. There are just 10 spots in this primitive campground, and while it can accommodate RVs up to 16 feet, it is most commonly used by tent campers. The campground sits at an elevation of more than 6,000 feet, and tall trees surrounding the campsites offer visitors plenty of shade on hot days. Pets are welcome to join you at Holey Meadow Campground but must be kept on a leash when you're out and about.
Your campsite at Holey Meadow Campground will come with a fire ring and a picnic table, and the sites are spacious and can easily hold two tents. Up to six people are permitted to stay at each site, including children, and if you plan to bring a second vehicle, you'll be subject to a small fee. This campground does not have drinking water, so be sure to bring plenty of your own to keep you and Sparky hydrated. Due to its remote location, you'll want to stock up on all necessities before your visit. If you happen to forget anything, there's a general store and restaurant about 18 miles away in the town of Ponderosa.
