California, United States
Fresno Dome is a dominant granite dome rising in isolation above the forest of Soquel Meadow in the Sierra National Forest in Madera County, California.
John Muir encountered Fresno Dome, then known by its local name of Wamello, in the 1870s, and used its summit to locate Fresno Grove (now known as Nelder Grove).
It is accessible by a trailhead which is a three-mile drive from the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway (part of the National Scenic Byway system). The nearest town is Bass Lake, California (16.4 km to the south).
At its base, sits the Fresno Dome campground, a backwoods campground accessible only by jeep trails. The campground is a favorite spot for deer hunters and is largely empty other than during deer season.
