(?) The Kern river is well over an hour's drive away. But Belknap is a beautiful campground, a rare opportunity to camp at the base of ancient redwood trees that tower 100's of feet above the campground. The main activity is hiking the Summit Trail (10 miles, round trip) to Quaking Aspen. This takes you through one of the larger of the last remaining Giant Sequoia Groves that make this area famous. The Tule River, which runs through the camp ground, is stocked with rainbow trout during the summer months, making fishing a very popular visitor activity. A quaint general store, bar and restaurant is available about 1 mile away in
 
    charming Camp Nelson. During winter months, hwy 190 is closed about 9 miles beyond Camp Nelson at Ponderosa. Winter recreationists enjoy this area for the snow mobiling, x-country skiing, and snow shoeing opportunities. Belknap
 is open year-round, but winter brings storms and sub-freezing conditions. The road to the campground is not always plowed. Rooms are available at the Camp Nelson Lodge (www.campnelsonlodge.com) and at nearby Pierpoint Springs Resort (www.pierpointsprings.com). Cabin rentals available at http://www.slatemtn.com/vacation-rentals.htm. Says Jason Gibbs

Natural loveliness surrounds this primitive campground, and amenities and facilities are few in primitive campgrounds such as Belknap Campground. It's been too much time since you went outside, and Belknap Campground in California is exactly the spot.
If you go for nature you will like a primitive campground like Belknap Campground.
 
Of course there are restrooms here, and following you arrive at this primitive campground you'll realize it was well worth the effort getting here.
