I just got back from a family camping trip to Lodgepole. I went with my husband, 3-yr-old son, and my in-laws. We had sites 124 and 125. They are definitely two of the best sites at Lodgepole. The only site better is 128 because it's on the farthest edge of the campground and secluded by fallen trees. Our site 124... More

Great time in Lodgepole. We were in #73, just a short stroll to the creek/river. The kids loved it. We were near the river and loved the sound at nite. Another couple we met camp on the uphill side, away fr the river, and said they see lots of wildlife come down off the mountain, then we looked at sure... More

My son and I really enjoyed camping at Lodgepole. We selected a tent only campsite - #108 that is located on the upper loop. It is not too far from the stream and we saw mule deer and other wildlife such as chipmunks at the site. The privacy was really great since the tent pad was located away from the... More

The campground was over populated. There are over 200 sites in an area that should have maybe 75, not more then 100. The sites are very small and on top of one another. Unless you are lucky enough to reserve one of the sites on the edges of the campground, you are not going to have any privacy or any... More

My wife and I decided to go on a camping trip to the mountains for the first time. Because we are still newlywed and I still care about my wife ^^ I consider 3 important points about vacation (1. Price 2. Location 3. Activity). Leaving from Downtown L.A it took us about 5 hours mostly driving open range which was... More

This was my first trip in an RV (25 ft with 1 slide-out), and I was initially apprehensive about staying in a campground with no hookups. We stayed 1 night (11 Jun), and it was fine. In prepping for my trip, I'd read that the campground could be very crowded. It was fairly crowded, with RV lots right next to... More

I decided to take my 6 year old camping for the 1st time and with the help of jaycruz' review and actual tent site number (101), our first trip was a BLAST!!! The campground was full but our site was really secluded. It gets morning sun only. The only drawback was the noise from the river but not so bad... More

Just got back from a great three days at Sequoia, and I was very pleased with our stay at Lodgepole. We stayed at site 174, because I had heard it was the most secluded spot. Well, "secluded" is a relative term: although 174 is at the outermost edge of the campground, set into the trees away from the rest, it... More

We have stayed at the Lodgepole Campground for the past five years. All of our campsites have been in the same loop up near the waterfall. We have been during June and July in previous years and choose August this year so that we could splash around a little in the river. Last year they had a really high water... More

We camped at Lodgepole for 3 nights over the 4th of July. After reading up on the area I was very concerned about bears. Therefore, we chose a sight surrounded by other campers, packed our food in ziplocs, and tried not to bring "overly odorous" foods. Well, 4 1/2 days in the parks and we didn't see one bear. However,... More
