Nelder Grove is located within the Sierra National Forest. On a dirt road. The last 1/4 mile is narrow and steep and is NOT recommended for motor homes or long trailers. Reservations are not taken. Out-houses are provided, but running water is not available.
Trash-in, Trash-out area.
An interpretive area is located near the campground. Several trails can be accessed from here. Shadow of the Giants Trail (1 mile loop), Bull Buck Trail (1/2 mile-one way), Chimney Tree Trail (1 mile+ loop), Graveyard of the Giants, Hawksworth Tree and the Granddad Tree can be accessed from the same trail (3 miles-one way).
A small creek flows through the campground (California Creek). The area tends to not draw the crowds that Mariposa Grove does. It is more rustic and quiet. Pure bliss.
