Hume Lake

Hume Lake is one of the most popular destination in this Southern Sierra region. The pine trees line the shores & the outdoor recreation never ends. Kayak or swim, picnic or hike, horseback or mountain bike, take your pick. Plenty sightseeing all around w/ 2 National Parks - Sequoia & Kings Canyon. Great camping all over this region, but make sure you get a campground reservation for summer months. Or choose to camp outside of a developed campground on steep, narrow one-lane dirt back roads - for free. Just make sure you get a campfire permit first!
