Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks are treated as one with regard to fees despite their both being quite large. It costs $20 for a car to enter both parks for a period of up to one week, quite reasonable when you consider just how big an area you are talking about. Now, most of that area is wilderness and to see much of King's Canyon in particular, you would have to do some serious hiking and truthfully, some backpacking.

We were traveling with the America The Beautiful Pass which allows access to all National Parks, Monuments, and Federally Administered Lands for a period of one year for $80 per car. If you were to just visit Sequoia and Yosemite, it would cost you half that amount so it is one of the best travel values going.
