“The closest village to the entrance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Grant Grove seemed smaller than some of the other villages but everything seemed well placed and easy to get to with a short walking distance. The gift shop/restaurant area was clean and well maintained. There is a lodge here as well as tent and RV camping and tent cabins and regular cabins for rent. Grant Grove is very close to the General Grant Tree . It seemed to be about halfway between both parks, which is what attracted us to it . I can't think of anything we disliked about staying here.

“I never thought of myself as a tree hugger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

But I just couldn't help myself when you see the size and magnificence of these trees. Spend a little time walking on the trails in Sequoia so you are walking amongst them rather than just visit the biggest ones. It makes you realise how majestic they are and also how small you are when you can walk through them, drive through them and stand inside the fire damage on the sides of them

“a tree to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Grant's grove is the home to one of the largest Sequoia trees in the world. It is a great place to visit and walk around in the forest and enjoy the beauty of the Sequoia National Park and all it has to offer.

“Fabulous trees!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Awe-inspiring views of sequoia trees. Lovely trails and hikes. Lots of history. John Muir Lodge and restaurant were quiet, clean, and the food was good. Did not like the tiny, winding road going south through the park. Drive slowly!

“Grant grove actually in Fresno County, not here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

The major attraction on this route, through Three Rivers, is Giant Forest. This includes Moro Rock, a must climb of 340 steps, and the General Sherman tree, the largest living thing in the world. The General Grant tree, at Grant Grove is some miles north, taking the General's Highway (get it?). Not sure who screwed up, but you will not be disappointed at either place. Please climb Moro Rock. Then stop in Lodgepole, or at Wasachi for lunch.
