This is a great campground. There are many riverside campsites and there is a market with groceries, souvenirs, and showers. Shuttles take you to and from the campground to other parts of the park to hike. Pets are allowed in the campground but not on any trails. There is significant bear activity and you will have to store scented things accordingly. All sites have bear boxes and bear secure trashcans. There are several ranger led programs throughout the week. There is no shortage of hiking for any skill level. Some top choices are the Congress Trail (moderate), Round Meadow (easy), and the Pear Lakes Trail(difficult). These are only a few. This campground does not have cabins, but there are other places nearby with cabins and lodges.
This is our favorite campground at Sequoia National Park! You can get spots by the river if you are lucky. We have even been lucky to get a spot there without reserving a site in advance. We have been happy with all of the sites we have reserved. We would recommend it to anyone!
For a car camp experience, Lodgepole has everything - National Park beauty, river runs through it, well laid out and maintained campground, plenty of day trip activities within an hour, I could go on. Best of all, not as crowded and hard to get to as Yosemite.
Situated almost 7,000 feet above sea level Lodgepole is located in Lodgepole Village in Sequoia National Park. There is a great market/general store at the entrance of the site and of course there is plenty to see and do in Sequoia Nat'l Park
This campsite was far too crowded for my taste. Space 188 is right on top of it's neighbors with little privacy. That said, I rated it higher due to the proximity to some beautiful hikes. The campground is a bit of a 'lazy camper' dream with a big market and showers. Bathrooms were tidy. This isn't roughing it in the wilderness, if that's what you are after. Spotted in campground: chipmunks, mosquitos, snakes and squirrels.
Been going here since I was little. We used to make yearly trips every summer until people started to know about it then we could never find a camp spot. Tip is early bird gets the worm here. Lake is ice cold but very refreshing and beautiful to kayak.
Busy, but excellent campground with all you need. Close to trails, general store, snack bar, showers, and the scenery is awesome! Just a short drive to the General Sherman tree or head the opposite direction to Kings Canyon and get away from the crowds! Best campground in Sequoia NP. Bring warmer clothes for the higher elevations.
