Camping Sequoia National Park

Great location in the Sequoia National Park. Appropriate for families, couples or singles. Plenty of trails to roam and scenery galore. Easy access to bathrooms, evening activities. If you can get a spot on the West side, you’ll have your own private sunset every evening! Can be a little crowded in the summer with families camping but everyone is happy, kids are having fun and your neighbors are great!

Relaxing campsite near the Grove village in Sequoia

Nice sites, trees for hammocks, bathrooms (no showers) w running water and toilets. Close to neighboring campsites but not too bad. Grove village is really close where they have firewood, grocery store, restaurant, shops, post office. Bugs in summer so don’t forget your bug spray! It’s bear country, so bear bins provided! Campsite is in the middle between King’s canyon and Sequoia National Park. Our site had a spot for 1 car, 2 tents and a hammock. Space looked shared with adjacent site.

The name says it all

Super cool place to camp in Sequoia National Park. I drove in from the south and passed quite a few full campgrounds before I finally made it to Sunset and scored a spot that I thought was great- up high and dry, no neighbors, a nearby source of downed wood. It looks like the Park Service stays busy downing dead/dying trees, however there were lots of trees providing cover. The closest neighbors were even able to hammock (though I was not due to lack of trees). When noisy neighbors moved in at the adjoining site, I was able to move to a primo site the next day. The new site (52, I think) was right on the edge of the granite slope with an amazing view of the sunset (hence the name of the campground). All sites had the usual amenities of picnic table and fire ring (and the mandatory must use bear boxes), but you need to take a look around for a site that is level and has adequate space between the fire pit and the tent site (mine did not, so no fire for me).  There is a visitor center across the road at Grant Grove Village with ranger station, grocery, post office, restaurant, gas station, and cabins. This is a good place to set up camp if you want to see big trees; the big sequoia tree General Grant is in a sequoia grove just up the road (you could easily hike there from the campground).

Sunset - Kings Canyon

Camping at higher elevation near popular attractions like Grant Grove, the visitor center, gift shop and market. The front section of the campground filled up with several crowds during a mid June weekend, though our area in the southwest was secluded.

We stayed three nights at spot 101 and it was spacious, shady, near a fallen tree, and on the edge of a loop so has a lot of area.

I had read that sit s 37-41 have the ultimate view of the sunset. I hoped that we would be lucky enough to get it, but our site proved to be just as great.

Flish toilets, bear canisters, potable water, and great sites.

Can hear the ocean and watch a good sunset!

Good spot for camping near the beach with clean bathrooms with quarter slot showers, picnic tables, fire pits and food lockers.
