    Wonderful Park!

    This park is in a beautiful setting in the high Sierras. This is our third visit. The sites are spacious and well-maintained with raking and clean fire pits. The reservation, staff, Sharon, was very accommodating and great with follow-up (off-season) with our reservation date request for an extremely busy time of the year. Paige, Connie and Shirley were each terrific with store service, getting on WIFI, etc. The store is well stocked . There is plenty to do and explore, especially with two beautiful lakes close by. The park activities were well planned and a lot of fun. We will definitely come back!

    More than a campground

    Wishon Village offers so much more than just camping. There are always activities sponsored by the Campground and by campers, We loved the Hootenanny and caricature artist. One year a camper hosted a blind wine tasting event at their site. There is bingo, pool, ping pong, pot lucks, and more. The location is ideal between the two lakes with just a short hike to Wishon Lake. There's an awesome hike to the Kings River. We love the hiking, fishing, smells of the redwoods, pines and oaks. We love the peace and quiet, the clean sites and the well maintained facilities. We love the well stocked camp store. Most of all we really really like Chris and Katie, the dedicated owners and operators. You don't see campgrounds like this in California where you get whatever you're given and like it or leave it. Go here once and you'll keep coming back.
