“Trees are awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This site is great providing a bit more history on the sequoias which was fascinating. Take your camera and enjoy. Don't forget to look for the squirrels too.

“What you'd expect from a national park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a grove of sequoias that hosts one of the top five biggest trees IN THE WORLD! It is probably a must see if you are in Eastern KC NP. Two felled trees you can hike through. It is pretty amazing to sit back and view these amazing natural giants.

“How can you not love a Sequoia Tree?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This park is astonishing. We've been to many many national parks and always marvel at our good fortune to live in such a amazing country with all this preserved for everyone to enjoy. This park is in our top 5....it is a bit off the beaten path but for us, it was so worth the effort to get there.

“A quiet and peaceful place for a night’s rest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We drove from San Francisco and stayed one night at the cabin in Grant Grove before going to Sequoia National Park the next day. The location was good. The stores, restaurant, and visitor center were right next to each other. The General Grant Tree Trail was also close by. Very convenient. The cabin was rustic and basic. Not the best but good enough to rest a tired soul. You need to pay for hot water in the shared bathroom. But the sink outside did run hot water in case there was a need. We walked around the area and saw sea of giant pine cones on the side of the road. Quite fun for some photos.
