Upper Stony Creek Campground sits on the northern side of Hume Lake, set amidst Douglas fir and jeffrey pines at an elevation of 5,250 feet. The 87-acre lake was built to support a one-time commercial logging operation, and is part of the Kings River Watershed, a region of the Sierra Nevada mountains replete with vast stands of timber. This is black bear country; special food storage regulations are in effect and must be followed. Only non-motorized boats are allowed on Hume Lake.
Off-road vehicles are not permitted in the campground. In accordance with standard industry practices, Sequoia Recreation will be assessing an additional vehicle fee per night on the second vehicle in each single family campsite, and on the third and fourth vehicle in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered to be one vehicle and the third and fourth are also considered to be one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles. Camping fee does not include Park Entrance Fee.
Fire restrictions may be imposed at any time due to hot, dry weather conditions, at which time campfires and charcoal fires may not be allowed. For current fire conditions or weather closures contact the Hume Lake Ranger District, (559) 338-2251. Due to the spread of invasive insects, firewood from outside the area is not permitted. Help protect our forests by purchasing or collecting firewood at or near your camping destination and burning it on-site.
