  • Well worth the drive. Part of the road in the park was under construction but was still worth the 20 or so minute delay  more »
  • the road starts at the top and bottom of door to the king river that has carved the entire Valley. the first leg is all downhill pretty full of curves with beautiful views and zero traffic, arrived at the bottom it is up to the river so deep in the canyon and feels because from the start to the end there are also 10 degrees difference! very nice!

Where to stay in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks provide plenty of lodging right inside their boundaries. Kings Canyon operates three lodges and a set of cabins, with two of the lodges and the cabins remaining open throughout the year. Of these, the John Muir Lodge sits closest to the entrance. The parks also offer more than a dozen campgrounds about equally distributed between them, with most operating on a first-come, first-served basis. Campsites fill up quickly on Friday nights in summer, but you should be able to find a place for your tent any other time during the week. Your accommodation options expand if you look along Sierra Road to the west of the parks. Motels, nature resorts, inns, bed and breakfasts, and lodges line the road, which runs alongside the North Fork Kaweah River.
