This place is just awesome! To some, yes they are just trees.. But to the ones who really think about it... These trees have stood the tests of time!!! They have born witness to many major events of our time as well as having stood tall and strong durning the time of Christ! They are also the LARGEST LIVING THING... More

Grant Grove village has the following: a vistor center, a small grocery/basics store, a gift shop, a pizza parlor (in the back of the restaurant), a restaurant, bathrooms, etc. The check in for the John Muir lodge and all the Grant Grove cabins is here, just in between the gift shop and restaurant.

This site is great providing a bit more history on the sequoias which was fascinating. Take your camera and enjoy. Don't forget to look for the squirrels too.

This is a grove of sequoias that hosts one of the top five biggest trees IN THE WORLD! It is probably a must see if you are in Eastern KC NP. Two felled trees you can hike through. It is pretty amazing to sit back and view these amazing natural giants.

This park is astonishing. We've been to many many national parks and always marvel at our good fortune to live in such a amazing country with all this preserved for everyone to enjoy. This park is in our top 5....it is a bit off the beaten path but for us, it was so worth the effort to get there.

We drove from San Francisco and stayed one night at the cabin in Grant Grove before going to Sequoia National Park the next day. The location was good. The stores, restaurant, and visitor center were right next to each other. The General Grant Tree Trail was also close by. Very convenient. The cabin was rustic and basic. Not the best... More

We walked through the visitor center, and the gift shop. It was small, but not mobbed with people. They have a nice restaurant here, but we were not hungry. I liked it here because it is much smaller than Yosemite, and much more humble. During the day they set up a little bbq/food service outside.

We have been on the Grant Grove loop trail many times, but this time we found a little traveled, well marked trail that goes thru a wonderful grove of Giant Sequoias and fern covered meadows. It starts at the end of the overflow parking lot (where the tour buses usually park.) The road is closed to vehicles, so park at... More

Very cool sequoia grove to visit. Easily accessible to vehicles in the summer. Just a short walk to the actual General Grant tree.

Quaint little cabins, poor parking. We came late in the day and someone was in our spot. There is no sink or toilets, you have to share a community bathroom and the showers take quarters. You have to pay a dollar per minute. They do provide towels and soap.
