While not much of a destination in itself, for those staying at the Potwisha campgrounds, there are some mildly interesting slab/crack climbs a short stroll away.
Worth hitting up for some V-basic cool downs and a picnic after Moro.
A group of 4-5 people with 4-5 pads would have themselves a real nice hootenanny.

Across the road from the Potwisha campgrounds (south) is a trail. Follow the trail until you come to a walking bridge. Just across the bridge and a sharp right along the river is a small cluster of boulders at a beach.
Huge rattlesnake at the base last time we visited!

A bit of exploring further north and south of the campground along the trails can yield some pretty epic results.

Getting There 

From Visalia/Three Rivers, take highway 198 through the entrance. A few miles past the entrance is the Potwisha campground. Either camp, or park across the road from the campgrounds.
Main boulders are south along the river, a couple hundred meters down the trail and across the bridge.
