We go to the Sequoias every year for three years now, it is amazing! The best campground is lodgepole and everything there is above campground standards! The best area is the upper loop if you're in a tent, or near the water. You have to be very aware if bears though, just because you don't see them alot in the... More

This is a good place to stay in Sequoia Ntl. Park, you can get to the campground by bus and it is beside all the services (showers, laundry, restaurant, grocery store and visitor center). We haven't seen any bear when we were there. The tent sites are not to near from the others, but some are very small, so you're... More

We stayed 4 nights & wished we had booked a longer stay. The end of August is great - no rain, cool enough nights you need blankets, warm days to dip in the low waters of the river, and to my surprise not much dust. We had to buy a long sleeve hooded jacket from the store as we needed... More

What a wonderful campground! We had tons of space and were right on a nice creek. The kids played in the creek (Although it was VERY cold) and we took a nice little hike. The shuttle is fantastic and picks you up right at the campground and can take you to any of the popular sights. We saw deer almost... More

Lodgepole is a very nice NPS campground. Store, Visitor Center, showers, laundry, shuttle, and deli/burgers/pizza are 1/4 to 1/2 mile (depending on your site) away from the camp area. Booked 4 nights, and liked it so much ended up adding an extra night. Got lucky and got one of only three open tent spaces. People were lining up at 7:30am... More

We just returned from a 3 night trip to Lodgepole and had an awesome time! We stayed at campsite 99. The tent pad is large and the site is pretty big also. My only complaint is that campsite 98 is very close. if you book those two campsites and go with friends, it would be perfect! The bathrooms are right... More

Lodgepole Campground is a must. Although usually booked in the summer time you can usually find a few open campsites. We spent 1 night and also hiked the Tokopah falls trail the next morning. Our campsite was right next to the rushing river as were many of the other sites. We did not have any problems with wildlife at all.... More

Sounds of the river ,seeing tall trees,discovering the cave !!! and hiking to see waterfall ... all make you relax and happy. There are lots of activities and kids never get bored. if you want to...

I've been going to Lodgepole since i was a kid. It is a great place to camp. It has gotten a little crowded, but still very nice. If you want a good spot you neeed to make reservations 4-6 months in advance. you will have your choice of spots at this time. I usually go in july, and the river... More

I went up to Lodgepole with some friends and it was a awesome time! I have never been camping before and it was a pleasant experience, enough for me to go back. The campsites were close but far enough for some privacy, depending on where your at. We had two different campsite, so we would go over to each persons... More
