I wasn't sure what to expect from the campground closest to the main amenities in the middle of the park, but Lodgepole was excellent. First, it is right by the pay showers and the market and cafe. Second, it is very centrally located, important because we started the next day with Crystal Cave and finished in Kings Canyon (by the... More

Quite a drive through the park before you get there, but its worth it. The places are large enough and clean. restrooms are in short reach, showers are located in the center. Trails start right of the campground and the shuttle stops here to take you everywhere.

Family trip. We had never been to Sequoia national park. We heard that lodgepole campgrounds was the best campground. They were right! We loved it! We went this memorial weekend. This was a last minute trip. All reserved sites had been taken. We were lucky that they have about 80 sites that are first come first serve. When we arrive... More

My son and I stayed at Lodgepole for a couple of nights in Sept this year. The campsite was fine, with decent toilets, nearby watertaps and fire pits for each site. Our site had reasonable space for our 2 tents and wasn't hemmed in by other sites unlike some campsites in France where they try and cram in as many... More

We had a camp site near the river so we were quite private. The sites near the river are better if you are travelling as a couple and are in an rv. Saw a deer come right up to the camp site which was an added bonus. Very friendly staff and the use of a shuttle to the sequoia trees... More

We stayed at campsite 199, it was a good campsite as here were no people behind us, just rocks. We say some other campsites that looked even more secluded and beside the river. I think they were sites 132 or 134. I would stay there next time. More private, lots of trees and right beside the river. The entrance to... More

We had sites 130-141 because our group was so large. We booked on the first day we could, right at 8 am to get these sites. They are gorgeous, right on the creek/river, which is currently dry, but the watering home is walking distance and provided so much entertainment for all the kids in our group ages 3-15. We saw...

No doubt, Lodgepole campground is by far the better campground for families, with great facilities, convenience and amenities. It's just like at home except that you are camping in the higher altitude forest which is cooler and has tall trees and river. Try to set camp away from the camp sites that are grouped together if you have a choice,... More

We have been to Lodgpole several times in the past and went again during the last week of August 2013. Obviously, traveling there late in the season, coupled with a lighter than normal snowfall, assured us that the Tokopow (sp) Falls would be down to a trickle, which they were. Due to the presence of bear lockers for the past... More
