Cherry Valley Campground, east of Sonora, California

Stanislaus National Forest \ Groveland Ranger District

Cherry Valley Campground is recovering nicely from the 2014 Rim Fire.

The campground remains lush with old-growth pines and a rich understory.  A benefit to the blaze is that it burned out much of the poison oak along the rivers and near the campground.  "A lot of people are going to like the idea of no poison oak for a few years," says Dusty Vaughn, who works nearby at the Groveland Ranger District of the U.S. Forest Service.

45 campsites have picnic tables and fire rings.  The campground provides vault toilet restroom and garbage collection.  Unless there is a drought situation there is also piped drinking water provided throughout the campground.  Cherry Valley Campground is better suited for tent campers or small motorhomes.  Some sites may be reserved prior to your arrival.  Follow the link to check forest alerts, directions, rates and availability:  Recreation.gov \ Cherry Valley Campground
