I went to this campground in May. It is convenient for all the facilities in the park and is also a good starting point to travel all the sights. I like that the campground is al elevation and on some mornings the cloud/fog is just drifting through the campsite and deer were walking through. I drove back down the mountain... More

Right next to the river! We had site #82, it was near the bathrooms, and right on the river. My only complaint was the awkward layout of the site made our picnic table a few feet above our fire pit, which made it a little smoky at times. Beautiful scenery, well maintained and clean bathrooms. The marketplace was very accessible... More

We arrived late and after checking the reservation list pulled into an empty spot with our car. Put most of our things into the HUGE bear proof storage easily. Used the clean facilities and slept in our car. Woke up early and built a fire in the ring, drank coffee and left out quickly to discover the park. It was... More

We spent a weekend at Lodgepole campground, camped very close to the river. Very nice, somewhat quiet and private. Spacious, every campground has a fire ring and picnic tables. Walking distance to the store and visitor center. There are trails starting at the parking lot, the rest few minutes drive. Will stay again.

My sister in law and her family were camping here. No hook ups, can't run the generator, has water in the middle of campground. So….very basic camping but has nice pads, can tent camp, and can walk to the river. The Lodgepole visitor center is within walking distance and that is where the pay showers are. There are toilets in... More

Lodgepole campground is my favorite place to stay when visiting Sequoia National Park. Kaweah river flows through the campground, there is a visitors center, gift shop, restaurant, and mini store close by. They also have laundry and showers. (Showers are $1 for 3 minutes). There are flush toilets and water available as well. Very shady spots! Also, a BEAR made... More

We camped at Lodgepole....totally AWESOME!...we took a hike, saw bears, they weren't a problem, we all just waited for them to pass! we hiked to the end of the trail to be greeted by a beautiful waterfall! The Park Rangers were very nice and informative....I want to go back!

Lodgepole Campground is situated directly along the river in a truly beautiful landscape! Every space has it's own picnic table and fireplace. There are flush toilets nearby and if you want to buy some food, shower or laundry you can do all of it in the visitor centre. A lovely place to stay while you are in Sequoia National Park!

My second time here. The best part about this campground is that you don't have to rough it. You are at walking distance to basic amenities: showers, groceries, restaurants. It is at 6700 feet, so it gets quite cold at night and especially early in the morning. The temperature dropped to the high 30s in June. Prepare accordingly.

We love to camp here. It is convenient with the store, showers, and even laundry if you are staying for a long time. Sites are nice, maintained and good sized. Has a few really nice hiking trails in back of campground. We try to make it out here every year.
