Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is a beautiful home to nature’s greatest marvels that seem to have stood still for the past few centuries. Giants fill these forests, dating back more than 2,000 years old. The Sequoia’s here are among the oldest and largest living things standing tall and dominating the natural world. There are a total of seven campgrounds located inside Sequoia National Park and an additional seven located inside Kings Canyon.

With a variety of options for your next vacation, we have chosen the highly rated campgrounds and RV parks for you to make the most out of your experience. Keep in mind that the area brings guests from all over, so campgrounds can be entirely booked out months in advance, especially during the summer months. As such, we recommend researching and choosing a campsite far ahead of your next vacation to ensure availability.

Lodgepole Campground

Lodgepole Campground is located within the heart of Sequoia National Park, making it readily accessible for a variety of outdoor adventures. The campground houses a visitor center to greet guests with a variety of informative and interactive videos, history about the area, and activities you can do with giant Sequoias to shade the area.

For those eager to begin their outdoor adventures, the Tokopah Valley Trail starts right from the visitor center. It is a relatively easy 3.7 miles round trip hike that will take you along the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River under a canopy of trees. This trail will climb over 500 feet and offer breathtaking views of the California forest, and even a 1200 foot waterfall near the end of the trail.

This campground does not provide electrical hookups; however, it does have flush toilets, fire rings, dump stations,  food storage lockers, picnic tables, and showers for campers to enjoy.
