The Moraine Campground in Kings Canyon National Park is located in the Cedar Grove section of the park. The campground has 121 sites that can accommodate RV and tent camping.
There is a paved loop and paved parking for each site along with a bear box, fire ring, and picnic table.
Some of the sites have shade but there are many that are in the direct sun. The campground does not take reservations so you will want to make sure and arrive early enough to have a choice of sites.
Make sure to bring a water container, bug spray and a shade cover with you in case you are out in the hot sun. We saw a lot of Stellar Jays in the campground. Make sure you have your food in containers the birds can not get into.
We visited in early August and the campground was 85 degrees by 11 am.
