When driving from Eastern Sequoia NP you can cut the corner around Grant's Grove and drive through Hume's Lake. It's a good idea as the lake area is picturesque. It is a private Christian camp that has full service facilities available to the public including...More

It’s a fairly short drive to the lake from the main road. This lake is probably crowded during summer because a lot of kids go to camp here.Not so crowded now. The lake gets stagnate times but I’m sure it is swimmable.Not stagnate now. Restrooms...More

I used to love this place! But this summer I was very disappointed. The designation of this place is now a Christian Camp. Even the old road to it has been changed. It is way overcrowded, with hundreds of teens everywhere. They all seem to...More

We love coming to Hume Lake whenever possible. The lake is so beautiful and no motors are allowed which make it a very quiet fun place for the kids. It's a 4 hr drive from Los Angeles and surround by trees. You can rent canoes,...More

The campgrounds themselves are vey well maintained with campsites larger than most. I think that has to do more with the caretaker's thoroughness, since I've been to other Sequoia campgrounds that were not so well maintained. The Lake is shallow. I waded out to the...More

We loved Hume Lake. Our family of 12 adults and 13 kids of all ages had a blast swimming, floating on inner tubes, paddling around in rented canoe/paddleboards, playing on the beach, and enjoying nature. A bald eagle dove into the lake for a fish...More

I have fond memories of visiting Hume Lake Christian Camp as a child! The lake itself, and surrounding area, is a place of beauty and tranquility that should not be hastily or speedily visited. Take your time to slow down, unwind, and drink in the...More

If you like a lake with tons of people around then this is for you. There is a large Christian camp here so it was loaded with kids from the camps. The parking lot (if I call it that) was a zoo. If you want...More
