I haven't stayed at other campgrounds in Sequioa, but have stayed at various sites at Lodgepole for the last 3 summers. While there is much to appreciate in nature all around: wildlife, vegetation, shining stars at night, proximity to hikes and trails, a river/stream that runs through the campgrounds-- it's an absolutely fabulous spot for a newbie camper that either:...

We are from Australia and were in a rented RV. We chose this campground as the reviews were the best & we were not disappointed! Stunning views! Great campground - site has a picnic table, firepit, and bear locker. Easy walk to facilities like shop, restaurant, toilets. Shuttle bus service available nearby also if required which takes you into nearest...

A great four days for our Boyscouts. We had two sites next to the river, it was great going to sleep and waking up to the sound of water. Neighbors were nice, site are close but to be expected, no complaint here. Trails to hike from the campground, nice visitor center, good showers. Lots of wildlife to observe and to...

Great campground. So quiet, and good sized. Hiking trails close by, and easy to get in and out of. Ours was along a creek (would be a river in Spring). Lots of swimming holes to cool off in, and huge rocks to climb up on and nap. On the down side, to campground is really large, and we were far...

We really liked the tranquility of the campground and the stunning nature around it. Hiking trails are close by so you can really jump into action the next morning. Camping spots are spacious and nicely equipped with a table, fireplace and an "anti-bear" storage box. The only real downside was a freezing temperature which during the night fell to a...

Had a rain storm Sat. night that was amazing, didnt last long but was VERY cool. great camping neighbors, planning our return trip for May next year right now!! Although the website was showing our loop sold out it was fairly empty all 3 nights (we were in 25-28) which was really great.

We really enjoyed this campground and its location. Sites were large and had nice firepits and picnic tables. The only complaint and only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because they don't have an on-site host like we did in Yosemite. And if they did, we didn't know about it. There was a very large group camp 2...

lodgepole is probably one of the best campgrounds for families! it always has the most bear activity which is great to see, clean bathrooms, trail heads that start in the campground, and the marketplace is very accomodating with clean showers. It can be a little loud at night because your not as secluded as other campgrounds but have always met...

My family and I came to camp at Lodgepole for only 2 nights, because it was all that was (luckily) available for this time of year. I had always wanted to stay here, but as the time got closer and after reading the reviews (about bears!) I almost cancelled, from getting so freaked out!! Lol... But we never saw even...

Beautiful site on the river! Lodgepole campground is spread out, our site was right on the river within a short walk - 1/4 mile from the general store, visitor center and showers. The pay showers are fine. There is a shuttle that can take you to most of the park destinations. Since we had our dog with us - we...
