Camping In Sequoia National Park
Imagine standing among giants so tall they blot out the sky. Somehow, only the sun is able to streak through a myriad of outstretched fingers. Welcome to Sequoia National Park, a place where one upward glance gives life new perspective. This national park lies on the western slope of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, home to the largest tree in the world.

Sequoia National Park sits adjacent to Kings Canyon National Park, and the two together amass more than 860,000 acres of wilderness with low-winding valleys, ever-majestic forests and high-mountain peeks waiting to be discovered. You can even explore the underground world of Sequoia, embarking on a crystal cave tour. Or venture upward, like the great Sequoias, scrambling over granite cliffs to reach towering domes, like Moro Rock.
Camping in the Sequoia National Park only heightens the experience. Nine of the 14 campgrounds allow RV camping, but of course, you’ll want to make sure the sits can accommodate the length of your Fleetwood RV. You’ll also want to note that none of the campgrounds offer hook-ups. The Lodgepole Campground is the park’s busiest, making it arguably the best campground in Sequoia National Park. Reservations can be made up to six months in advance. The campground offers 214 sites with close proximity to Lodgepole Village’s market, laundry, showers and visitor center and is just a few miles from the Giant Forest Sequoia Grove, home to four of the five largest sequoias in the world.
