The Mineral King area features the highest elevation campground in the parks. At 7,500 feet 2280 m, it is only open during the summer months. A narrow, winding, largely unpaved road leads to the area and its two campgrounds. RVs and trailers are not recommended on Mineral King Road and are not permitted in campgrounds. Mineral King is not connected to the rest of Sequoia National Park by roads. To get here, turn off of Highway 198 in Three Rivers, California.

The campground is situated along the East Fork of the Kaweah River in a once logged sequoia grove. Atwell Mill campground contains 21 sites. The Atwell-Hockett Trail begins here.

Hikes into the backcountry out of Mineral King will give visitors an ever deeper understanding of the beauty and uniqueness of Sequoia National Park. Hike to alpine lakes and over mountain passes, or climb a peak.

There are limited services at Silver City Resort, 1.7 miles 3 km east of the campground. More extensive services can be found in Three Rivers, 23 miles 37 km west of Atwell Mill Campground approximately 1.5 hours away.

Trails to alpine lakes and mountain passes begin nearby.
