We drove down there twice. The first, to check it out and the second to drop my son off so he could do some fishing. Both days it was jammed packed with camp kids. The store area was particularly crowded. If you drive the road...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

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

I hadn't visited this lake in many years and I was shocked to see the crowds of people at was once a quite and peaceful lake. If you are looking for peace and quite, this is not the place.

Hume Lake is very serene and peaceful. It is a Christian camping area for kids. There were a couple of men fishing in this beautiful mountain lake. We sat on a bench overlooking the lake and enjoyed lunch. It was a bit cool and breezy.

The lake is the site of a Christian retreat center, but it also has a pleasant hike around the lake free of Christian theory, with a little logging history, and many nice views.
