I went to Montecito for one night. It is the picturesque lodge with a lake... for kids and adults. It was really a good experience for folks that know they are not going for luxuries... but for fun. Quick notice before I go on. Expedia has a lower rate than if you call the lodge directly... However if you reserve... More

This was the best vacation we have ever had. Just got back from a great week at Family Camp. The location could not be more beautiful. The staff was universally great! Fun, helpful and clearly loved their jobs. Tons of activities for both the adults and kids. Gorgeous hikes in the Sequoia National Park, mountain biking, rock climbing, archery, art,... More

We loved it. In the heart of Sequoia close to many trails. Has both a pool area and its own little lake with a beach. It is camp standard with high service level and a lot of all inclusive activities. The walk to Big Baldy starts here and was great. We saw Marmot at the top and a bear on... More

We stayed at the Montecito Sequoia Lodge for one night while visiting Sequoia National Forest in mid-May. It is right in the Park and we had no problem with the roads and the snow was gone except for some small remnants in shady areas. We really liked this place and wish we were staying another night. It felt like we... More

Our extended family has come for seven consecutive summer camp weeks and one Thanksgiving and every single time, we all have a great time, enjoying an insanely wide range of indoor and outdoor activities run by warm and skilled counselors (many who return year after year), delicious meals, stunning setting, great other guests. My sense is that weekends and non-family... More

Just came back from our trip to Sequoia. Stayed at this lodge on July 5 for one night. Very unhappy with the room stayed. Appeared that they're hiding some facts to make us reserve for this so called the "Suite" with 2 kings & 2 bunks. We're two families of two adults (couples) & two boys (total 8). They offered...

This is the summer camp you dreamed of as a kid. Activities for every age, great counselors for the kids, swimming, boating, biking, crafts, tennis, archery, you name it plus all the meals included. Just a fabulous family vacation! Tons to choose from for both parents and kids.

I've visited Montecito Sequoia Lodge many times, in both summer (Family Camp) and fall. Although I'm a single female, I stay there annually with my extended family, whose members range in age from toddler (when we first visited, 8+ years ago) to retiree. The quality of the staff, combined with the delicious food and the pleasant lodgings, make my annual... More

Travelers please keep in mind that this lodge is in the middle of Sequoia National Park and is run by the park service and therefore not a resort type setting. However the location is amazing. You can get almost anywhere in the park within an hour if not less. It's run like a summer camp, so expect groups of teenagers,... More

Every time we return to this magical location, smiles appear on all of our faces. The first time we came to Montecito Sequoia was in April seven years ago. Snow was falling and it was so beautiful. Warm, friendly staff and excellent food. Family style dining experience guarantees meeting new people at every meal. Summertime is no different. Always lots... More
