“Great place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very cool sequoia grove to visit. Easily accessible to vehicles in the summer. Just a short walk to the actual General Grant tree.

“Quaint, needs plumbing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Quaint little cabins, poor parking. We came late in the day and someone was in our spot. There is no sink or toilets, you have to share a community bathroom and the showers take quarters. You have to pay a dollar per minute. They do provide towels and soap.

“land of giants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I believe this is the easiest place to see the most giant sequoia trees in one area. The paved trail, about a mile long loop, is easy to walk, and it puts you right next to some of the largest trees on earth. Grant Grove is also the closest part of of the park from Fresno, so it only takes about an hour to drive here from the city. It is usually accessible in winter, but you should still check beforehand.

“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
