It has 4 shaded campgrounds, grocery store, hotel, snack bar and the Park Service's Visitor Center. Facilities are low key but quite serviceable. The campgrounds were packed on the summer weekend we visited, but... More

Sort of in-between Sequoia and Kings, this little privately run village is rather quaint, and they sell gasoline (something you will not find inside park boundaries. What you will find here are cheap souveniers, some camping type supplies including a sampling of groceries and a restaurant. Used the restroom here and left.

Food was great after a long day of hiking, had burgers and the special - both done well (but not at all gourmet). Market sells beer/wine if you like. Seating comes with great view of river.

I drove from Grant Grove to here. I stopped by Grizzly Falls then Cedar Grove village. I love the area since it's has the river and the water is so clear. River water is not cold, you can swim. There are picnic tables, you can BBQ here. I'd go back and stay here for a night or two. If you... More

Very nice area along the water for photos. Lodging, some food, gift center with a mini market. Picnic tables to eat outside and many trails to hike. Stop here for sure.

Cedar Grove Pack Station Trail ride was great, horses were fun, trail was beautiful. Kids loved it. For horses we did not know cash only, so be prepared. We enjoyed our stay in Cedar Grove, people were nice, the river and the landscape are awesome! Great place.

The people that work there were very friendly and informative. The store was awesome for t-shirts and other collectables. WiFi was a bonus.

We found the employees at the restaurant and the store to be extremely surly and uncharacteristic of a national park. We got to the restaurant just before closing time, after a very long drive, and they were unhappy to see any more people that day. They did reluctantly make us cold sandwiches, but just after we got our sandwiches, another... More

Grants grove is so beautiful! It was my first experience with "the big trees." The General Grant tree was amazing! It made me feel so small. It put life's stupid little issues into perspective. Totally felt like a "puny human!"
