Where to camp

There are 7 developed campgrounds within Sequoia and 7 within Kings Canyon, all operated by the National Park Service, and most are first come, first served.

Lodgepole and Dorst Creek campgrounds, near Giant Forest, accept reservations (recreation.gov or 877/444-6777). The Foothills campgrounds lie near Sequoia’s southern entrance and two campgrounds are near Mineral King.

At Kings Canyon, you’ll find campgrounds clustering at Grant Grove and at Cedar Grove. The per-night, per-site camping fee is the same for RVs, trailers, and cars. No RVs or trailers are allowed at the two campgrounds in the Mineral King area.
