We found the employees at the restaurant and the store to be extremely surly and uncharacteristic of a national park. We got to the restaurant just before closing time, after a very long drive, and they were unhappy to see any more people that day. They did reluctantly make us cold sandwiches, but just after we got our sandwiches, another... More

Grants grove is so beautiful! It was my first experience with "the big trees." The General Grant tree was amazing! It made me feel so small. It put life's stupid little issues into perspective. Totally felt like a "puny human!"

This is a place worth driving to. You will decent to the lowest area of Sequoia and will get really beautiful views. Near the end you will pass Grizzly Falls which can be very active in the spring.

This is not on the Main Generals Highway. It is at the end of a 30 mile stretch of winding mountain roads. But it is worth it. You will want to have reservations before you get here. The rooms are ok and the AC doesn't work great, but it is cool at night even in Summer time. Nice and quiet... More

If you head towards the "road's end" in kings canyon, 7 miles before the end you reach cedar grove 'village'. It's a single building with perhaps 20 rooms on the second floor with a corridor down the middle plus a store and eatery on the first floor. The store cashiers are the hotel clerks and work the eatery too. On... More

Visitor's center with helpful rangers and supply store. And who doesn't appreciate over 4 bucks for a bag of ice! Pizza place open late.

All the basics embedded deep in the canyon. Snack bar/restaurant with dining both inside and out. The only “major” shortcomings were the paper-thin walls (combined with noisy neighbors) and that the food service and office didn’t open until 8:00 a.m. (or after, as it turned out). For a facility that serves people most likely to be up with the sun,... More

Every trip since a child. I love this place. You may not. Too bad for you. Fish, and walk up Bubb's Creek. Say hello to real hikers. Coldest place in the Sierra's in the Fall. Enjoy.

Cedar Grove Village is more about the ‘journey’ to Roads End (closes mid November until mid April). Allow 3 hours round trip on Hwy 180 (Kings Canyon Scenic Byway) from Grant Grove Village. Plus more time out of the car to take advantage of several stunning viewpoints, falls, caves, hikes, meals and a drive that needs to be relished for... More
