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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This campground is amazing. Been going since I was a kid and finally made it back with my own children. It was just as great as I remembered. Ranger programs, deer walking through campground, squirrels, hubby and son saw 3 bears on a hike. Flush toilets, pay showers at market area, very helpful Park Rangers in the campground that did...

Great campground. It was HUGE, but it didn't sound like it was huge. Very unique setting on the side of a hill rather than in a flat valley like others. The only negative was since it was so big the bathrooms were far away.

In the midst of Summer, an escape into the mountains of the Sequoia national park is wonderful. The park is very well kept and managed. Lodgepole is a good place to stay. The higher the number of your camp site, the farther you are from the central facilities (grocery store, shuttle stop, showers) but the quieter it is. The tent... More

Lodgepole Campground is conveniently located 4 miles inside Sequoia National Park. For those of us towing trailers, that's as far as you are allowed to go inside the park as the 198 is terribly windy and narrow. Be warned, if you do have a trailer, there are few pull through sites at the campground. We did not have one initially... More

A not too well stocked store. The store had general merchandise, but no meat (other than canned meats) and very few other food. They did have hot dogs, but no bacon, produce, meat or other food. They did have plenty of beer and souvenirs. There is a deli with short order foods.

We stayed 3 nights in lodgepole campground and it was amazing! The campsite was spacious and private. There is a market, visitor center and a restaurant nearby. The shower are very affordable (1$ for 3 minutes!) and the prices at the restaurant were very low compare to other national park. You can have breakfast with eggs and bacon for 4.50... More
