We loved it here! It stands in such beautiful location right next to King's river. You can hear the water flowing at night if you keep the window open. Short drive to many awesome trails in Kings Canyon. We spent 3 days here, but we were so sad to leave. We will definitely come back! Snack bar was really yummy... More

Let me qualify this by saying I stayed here at end of season...I mean the very last days of operation. I believe that has influence over my experience in some ways. Let me start with registration. Check-In starts at 4pm sharp - no earlier. The gal who handled the registration was friendly. My critique is not about her, it's about... More

Cedar Grove Lodge is in one of the most beautiful locations I can think of. It's great that there is a hotel to stay at way out in King's Canyon, and I'm grateful we were able to find a room there. The accommodations were very dirty and outdated, however. I would have preferred driving into King's Canyon for the day,... More

Accommodations at CGL are adequate given the stunning beauty of Kings Canyon, but cosmetic updating of the lodge would be appreciated. Spent one night and found the staff to be welcoming. The food choices at the snack bar were quite tasty and served its purpose: nourishment to get out and see more of the surroundings. Rooms are quite dated and... More

Our arrival was great as we were met by a helpful gal named Diane who made us feel welcome and appreciated. We'd raced the clock to get to the hotel by 9:00pm, but Diane said that she'd always wait for everyone to arrive before she headed out for the night - which showed us immediately that the Cedar Grove had...

This lodge is located deep inside Kings Canyon. Had a room facing the river and the staff was positive and helpful. It is "rustic" but comfortable. There are many trails nearby. It is located about an hour from Grants Grove and another hour to Sequoia National Park. Spent 4 days here and did lots of hiking. Would recommend bringing some... More

Don't set expectations too high! Cedar Grove Lodge is decent value for money, I suppose, when compared to other options in the parks system. It has a wonderfully tranquil location next to Kings River, though, it does need an overhaul & a deep cleaning. Request a river-view deluxe room, which happens to have a mini-fridge unlike our parking lot view,... More

We stayed at Kings Canyon Cedar Grove Lodge - August 15th, 2014and had reserved the room for the 16th as well. The room is very small, somewhat dark and to our total dismay it was uncomfortably hot. The electricity was out when we arrived around 5pm and so the a/c was not available. We were told it would be on... More

This lodge takes a while to get to, but is very worth it. The accommodation is simple but clean, the food is basic but palatable and the location is out of this world. It's like another planet, so if you're looking for a real getaway, then this should be on your list. We met honeymooning couples, seasoned hikers and an... More
