Help us choose the best site for us! We would like some info on each of these camps so that we can pick the one that best matches our needs. We will have camper trailers and kids with us. Travelling as a group of three vehicles and wanting to walk the Canyon etc. We do not need power necessarily. would prefer nicely grassed campsites and as always, clean amenities. Help us if you can!

Both have both (or at least they did in May). They both get very crowded especially when the backpacker hordes arrive by the bus load.

Gday Bundy,
i can only comment on the kings canyon resort, very clean, very tidy great spot. BUT yes there is always a but with out dougbt they were the biggest most unpleasant @#%^&$#@ i have ever had the misfourtune to deal with, we were with a group and we had four camper trailers and they proceeded to squeeze us onto two sites and piggy back power and still pay full price not because they were full it just how we do it they said and if you dont like it go elsewhere.
I could not bring myself to recommend them. Mind you i have heard others rave about the place

If your talking about Kings Canyon resort vs Kings Creek Station, stay at the station.
Its not as flash as the resort and theres no pub but heaps nicer people run it (because they own it!) and the money stays with the locals not some massive company who realy doesent give a rats about the tourists. Besides the Conways were there first.

I have only been to Kings Kanyon and i believe it is something you cannot miss. It is an oasis in the desert. To see it fully it does require a bit of walking. When i was there a few years ago, you could drive a fair distance into the canyon but i believe it has been stopped now. Enjoy!!!! Michael

Stayed at Kings Creek Station and would also highly reccomend it.We had a private,shaded, grassed area and loved our stay there.(this is the second time we've stayed there)The only down side was that all the women went on a sunset camel ride leaving us blokes to cook tea-shock-for them on their return.
