“I've now seen the LARGEST LIVING THING on our planet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place is just awesome! To some, yes they are just trees..
But to the ones who really think about it... These trees have stood the tests of time!!!
They have born witness to many major events of our time as well as having stood tall and strong durning the time of Christ!
They are also the LARGEST LIVING THING on our planet! Bigger than whales... And they have survived all of the harshest environments nature can throw at them: fire, freezing cold, drought, floods...
And the BIGGEST THREAT YET to their continued survival is MAN!
Just think about it... As well as all the other beautiful wonders of nature this park has to offer...
Awesome place to visit!
A very humbling experience...:-)

“Stop by and get food, info, gifts, etc”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Grant Grove village has the following: a vistor center, a small grocery/basics store, a gift shop, a pizza parlor (in the back of the restaurant), a restaurant, bathrooms, etc. The check in for the John Muir lodge and all the Grant Grove cabins is here, just in between the gift shop and restaurant.

“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.
