The White River Campground is a picturesque place to head for a getaway in the Sequoia National Forest near Posey, California. It's situated along the banks of the White River at an elevation of 4,000 feet and is surrounded by mature cedar trees that offer lots of shade. This remote campground has eight tent-only sites to choose from, and up to six people (including children) are permitted at each site. Your dog can also camp with you, but they must stay on a leash when they aren't in your tent.
Each campsite at the White River Campground comes with a fire ring and a picnic table, but you must obtain a permit before having a campfire. The road leading to the campground is steep with plenty of switchbacks, and if you bring a second vehicle, you'll be subject to a $7 fee. Due to its remote location, there are no services nearby. Campers must come prepared with everything they might need during their stay, including food, first aid equipment, and fuel, but there is drinking water available. You must collect or purchase firewood near your campsite, as visitors are not permitted to bring their own wood.
The White River Campground is only eight miles from the California Hot Springs, and your campsite is close to many other activities. The river narrows to a creek at the campground, so campers can wade or fish, and you can hike on several trails nearby. The Sequoia National Forest is home to the Sequoia, the world's largest tree, and visitors can see these trees for themselves around 30 groves in the forest.
This campground may be closed occasionally due to hazardous trees in the area. Even when the campground is open, visitors should be on the lookout for falling trees. This campground is also in bear country, so be sure to store your food and waste appropriately. You can book your spot at the White River Campground as soon as three days before your visit or up to six months in advance.
