My husband and I love Sequoia National Park and are avid hikers. We decided to stay at the Buckeye Tree Lodge for a change because it's within a mile to the Park Entrance. We stayed two nights in a cabin room overlooking the Kaweah river flowing over huge boulders. The visuals and sounds were heavenly. The room itself was comfortable, clean with two queen beds and a shared balcony to sit outside. A special treat was a cannister of fresh beans and coffee grinder to make a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. A small basket with muffins, fruits and juice are also provided. What a thrill to see a beautiful black bear in the early morning right below our deck. We enjoyed Buckeye so much that we ended up staying an extra night. The manager and all staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back.
