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 road. The only disadvantage of #108 relates to the small 9x9 tent pad but this worked out well for us.
The campground is near the market, grill, post office and ranger station. It is not a long drive to the General Sherman tree. I would definitely recommend camping at Lodgepole. Some sites are better then others and I did see sites where tents were located close to the road. The site for reserving campsites gives a description of each site. This information was helpful in selecting where we wanted to camp and I found the information to be fairly accurate.
