Awesome spot along the river four nights!! The rushing water sound drowned out all other noises like vehicles and neighbors. Bathrooms and showers were a little dirty and smelly but not much different than other campgrounds I've stayed at. Much better than Stony Creek Campground where we spent one night.

Arrived at the Sequoia National Park main entrance and saw the sign that said Lodgepole Campground "Full". Oh no we thought, that is where we wanted to stay. I said lets drive by and check if they are really full? Upon arrival at the Lodgepole Campground entrance the friendly Ranger at the window said yes, we do have open tent... More

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...
