McKinley in his tent at Lodgepole - Sequoia National Park

McKinley in his tent at Lodgepole

Wooded Campground: Lodgepole Campground

We ended up staying at a large campground in the heart of Sequoia National Park called Lodgepole. There are over a hundred campsites that accomodate tents and a few that accomodate trailers. The campsites are located in a grove of tall Sequoia trees adjacent to the Kahwea river with a few sites offering a great view of the Tokopah Falls.

Unique Qualities: The views from this campground are spectacular & the surrounding scenery makes this place worth the $20 a night fee. Families may also be interested in the fact that the capground has a full service market, gift shop, cafe, post office, visitor center, laundry, and most importantly showers! This may sound like an overdone campground but I assure you that the surroundings will still allow you to feel like you are rouging it in the wilds of California. There are wild bears, deer, & coyote that roam the grounds so this place isn't all that civilized.

Montecito Sequoia Resort: A wooded mountain resort

Can't really describe our stay since we didn't stay there. I will say that this place is located on its own secluded wooded site adjacent to a small lake. It looks like an assortment of rustic cabins and lodgings that offer visitors a variety of outdoors activities. It may be a nice place to stay but my one chance encounter with an employee left me feeling like I'd rather avoid this place than stay here. He wasn't too happy that I drove 20 yards down their dirt road to photograph the lakeside.

Directions: Past Lodgepole on the General's Highway
