We had a wonderful time. Gorgeous views, nice grounds with bear boxes and fire pits. There are major differences between the different sites in terms of how close you are to eachother/ how quiet it will be. But my god, our site was amazing. Breathtaking. We saw bears and deer. I want to go back!!!

Stayed in site #183 for a week in September 2014. Campground was fairly full on weekend but about 75% empty on Sunday afternoon. I understand that is full 24/7 during peak season though. Sequoia National Park is lovely and well worth visiting. Lodgepole dates at least back to the 1930's and is a beloved destination for many families who have... More

Clean quiet campground for the number of sites in the campground. Campsites vary greatly and all had bear boxes, but did not see any bears while there (they must be working). Bathrooms were clean and the campground store was relatively close. Pay showers were available by campground store. I would stay here again.

Rugged feeling Campground with nice sized campsites, beautiful scenery, and ample wildlife. The good: It's close to the sights, hiking, showers, laundry, and store. The bad: The hours are very limited for the showers, food, and laundry. Bathrooms aren't in convenient locations. I would like to see more rangers or perhaps a park host, especially since there is no phone... More

Lodgepole Visitor Center area has an establishment next door to it that offers showers at $1.00 for 3 minutes, laundry ( 1.00 wash sm load + .50 for 20 minute dryers) and a good selection for food and drink. The toilets in the shower area however were gross...

We stayed here last month and it was awesome! Within the campground there is a little river that we stayed by and you can hear it running during the night. During the day we walked into the campgrounds a little more and found an area where the river had more water and were able to swim and relax in the... More

Just to get this out of the way: if you like your camping holiday to come with swimming pool, wifi, and other comfort, then this might not be for you. The toilets have no light, for the showers ($3/10 minutes) you have to go to the Lodgepole Village Centre, 5 minutes from the entrance to the camp ground. The village... More

Unless you are a "hardcore-wilderness-camper" this is the perfect campground. The trees, the trails, the wildlife, the stream, the attractions all within fairly close proximity make this the perfect campground for most. However, you're almost never alone in this area - some people will find this reassuring while others may not like the idea of company. Lots of people come... More

We were really looking forward to staying here and had read all the great reviews. We arrived from three rivers (only 20miles from lodge pole) to be told by the ranger that we couldn't go any further & we"d come in the wrong entrance! It would take us another two and a half hours of driving to get to the... More

We camped with 3 other families and had 4 campsites. Each campsite varies in size and availability of level ground and shade. As far as campsites go, these were fairly nice, the best thing about them was the flat marked off area for the tent. The bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. They have flush toilets and toilet paper,... More
