Conserving the Kings River and its landscape enriches our lives and ensures that future generations will be able to enjoy the Kings River’s unique natural treasures. 


Cascading from the highest reaches of the Sierra Nevada Mountains through the deepest river gorge in North America, the beautiful Kings River flows through Kings Canyon National Park and the Sequoia National Forest into the foothills where it is captured by Pine Flat Dam creating Pine Flat Lake. It later escapes from the dam to spread out on the San Joaquin Valley floor where its waters give life to the fertile valley. On its fascinating journey, it provides breath taking scenery, electric power, white water rafting, trout and warm water fishing, boating, recreational floating, and educational opportunities while at the same time nourishing plant and animal communities adjacent to it.
