Aspen Hollow Group sits at an elevation of 5,300 feet within the Giant Sequoia National Monument, adjacent to Kings Canyon National Park. The campground sits just one mile from Hume Lake, an 87-acre man-made lake in the Kings River Watershed.
Natural Features: The Sequoia National Forest, located at the southern end of the Sierra Nevada in central California, takes its name from the giant sequoia, the world's largest tree, which grows in more than 30 groves on the Forest's lower slopes.
The Forest comprises about 1.1 million acres, and elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls such as Salmon Creek Falls near Fairview and Grizzly Falls on the Kings River.
Recreation: In addition to hiking the sequoia groves, visitors enjoy swimming, trout fishing and boating at nearby Lake Hume. The trails in the Monument are open to hikers, horses and bikes, however bikes are not permitted in wilderness areas.
Facilities: The campground accommodates up to 100 people and has back-in spaces for 35 vehicles.
Vault toilets, drinking water, laundry facilities and food storage lockers are provided.
The Giant Sequoia Mercantile offers a wide variety of books, maps, gifts, local art, camping supplies and other merchandise.
This facility is operated by Sequoia Recreation, a division of California Land Management and comments are welcome; comment forms are available from campground hosts or online.
