Sierra View Camp is located about a quarter mile from the junction of Hobbs and Manzanita Point roads at the end of a short side trail. The camp is close to headquarters, it has a picnic table and (best of all) it has gorgeous panoramic views of the park and the Santa Clara Valley.
Looking east on exceptionally clear days, you can see the lofty peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, over 140 miles away. The best views of the Sierra, about 500 feet farther up the hill to the north.
The spring alongside the trail to the camp is usually very reliable.
