We had a camp site near the river so we were quite private. The sites near the river are better if you are travelling as a couple and are in an rv. Saw a deer come right up to the camp site which was an added bonus. Very friendly staff and the use of a shuttle to the sequoia trees...

We stayed at campsite 199, it was a good campsite as here were no people behind us, just rocks. We say some other campsites that looked even more secluded and beside the river. I think they were sites 132 or 134. I would stay there next time. More private, lots of trees and right beside the river. The entrance to...

We had sites 130-141 because our group was so large. We booked on the first day we could, right at 8 am to get these sites. They are gorgeous, right on the creek/river, which is currently dry, but the watering home is walking distance and provided so much entertainment for all the kids in our group ages 3-15. We saw...

No doubt, Lodgepole campground is by far the better campground for families, with great facilities, convenience and amenities. It's just like at home except that you are camping in the higher altitude forest which is cooler and has tall trees and river. Try to set camp away from the camp sites that are grouped together if you have a choice,...

We have been to Lodgpole several times in the past and went again during the last week of August 2013. Obviously, traveling there late in the season, coupled with a lighter than normal snowfall, assured us that the Tokopow (sp) Falls would be down to a trickle, which they were. Due to the presence of bear lockers for the past...

We stayed at Lodgepole for two days and tent camped. Running water, toilets and sinks are very accessible in the park. Campsites are fairly close together but sites towards the back of the campground have a bit more privacy. All sites have bear bins and these are essential as we saw one bear at the adjacent site while we were...

We just finished staying at this campground last week. Great location for everything we wanted to do. Clean facility. Our only complaint was with the actual campsite design. Site 144 is nice, great view, close to the river. However, site 143 fire ring is literally 2 feet from the tent pad of 144!!!! So unless you rent both sites, I...

This campground is really cool. We stayed in spaces 46 and 47 with friends. Each morning deer came through the campground. Our campsites were right on the stream. It wasn't flowing strongly because of the dry season but it had several spots where the water pooled up into nice swimming pools. Most of the Sequoia highlights are very close to...

This campsite has very limited facilities for RV's. At $20 per night, it's expensive. If you're expecting hookups or wifi - forget it! Also we went looking for rv toilet chemicals in the camp shop - there were none and no one knew what we were looking for! However, the venue is right in the centre for the Sequoia's attractions...

This is the perfect "tweener" (not the age) camping experience! If you do not want to get dirty, see a bug or sleep in a tent-STAY AWAY! On the "flip" side, if having clean nearby restrooms and a comfortable general store with all the amenities is not really "camping"-STAY AWAY! For the middle audience, this is PERFECTION! We have been...
