We recently spent three nights at SHSC and everything exceeded our expectations. The cabins were very comfy and well appointed. The cuisine, including delicious appetizers while watching the setting sun, was 5-stars and the service was exceptional. The owners paid attention to every detail and the staff (Demo, Alex,Vlad,Nick and Anton) were polite, professional and very well trained. If you are looking to experience the wilderness without roughing it, SHSC is the place to visit.

We spent 3 nights at the camp and it was a great experience. Owners Burr and Suzanne are delightful hosts who make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. Their staff are young Russian exchange students who are polite and professional. The service was excellent and the meals prepared by the chef were 5 star. Accommodations in the tent cabins were very comfortable and the beds simply luxurious. The camp is deep in the Sierra and there are many hiking trails right from the camp so you really don't have to drive anywhere is you don't want too.Keep in mind that this is a place for active people who love the outdoors. If you're looking for a spa getaway, this is not the place for you. We also found the other guests to be really interesting and enjoyable to speak with. If you like hiking in the wilderness but don't want to set up a tent and eat trail food for dinner, you'll love this place.

This was an absolutely awful experience. For those who are not regular campers, please do yourself a favor and stay away - it is not glamping. The trip begins with a serious uphill hike where you carry all of your belongings. The thin mountain air, the incline, and bags make this very challenging. Once you get to the main pavilion, the views are stunning but to get to your room is another hike - this one is shorter but much steeper. By the time, we got to our room, it felt like we had done a marathon. The room itself looked like the picture but a much dirtier, insect infested version. The sheets looked like they had not been washed, the floors were full of dirt, there were stains on the bedpost, and the minute the sun set the insects arrived in full force. This was mainly because the tent is open on the bottom. A snake, insect, tarantula etc can easily crawl in. My partner got sick on the trip and we ended up leaving one day early without complaining to them or asking for a partial refund. When we got back, we noticed an additional charge of $25 dollars on our credit card. I called to inquire about the charges and was told it was for the small bottles of Perrier water we drank - 5 dollars a bottle. I said I wished we were told in advance that we were going to get charged for the water. The "gentleman" on the phone responded combatively and aggressive. I do not appreciate being mansplained, spoken to aggressively, or spoken down to, especially as a female. Just as I was able to get in a few words, he hung up on. I didn't expect Four Seasons customer service but I did expect common decency especially at $500 a night. It was simply an awful experience.

Response from SHSCCamper, Manager at Sequoia High Sierra Camp
Responded Sep 12, 2019
This individual arrived at our facility sick. She arrived in camp late and immediately went to her cabin, skipping dinner. We remember her well, as we try to interact with all our guests. She did not emerge from her cabin until she left camp. Her companion did procure several bottles of Imported mineral water to help ease her discomfort. Yes ,we charge for items from our bar. The Pellegrino water has to be purchased, brought into the wilderness and resold. Our prices are clearly displayed. We are always concerned when one of our guests has a difficult experience, but when they arrive sick, one can see that their sickness can taint their entire experience. We are a wilderness camp located off the grid in a forest setting. We don not have poisonous snakes, tarantulas at our altitude. We are at 8500 feet. We always suggest our visitors purchase trip insurance for situations exactly like this one. We suspect that this former guest is really more upset about having to leave early and forfeit the remainder of her prepaid stay, than the price of imported mineral water.

My husband and I spent three nights here last week and were delighted at the fabulous food!!!!!! The chef here is amazing! The owners are gracious and delightful and how they get all that glorious food up there and prepared is a miracle! I LOVE the group dinners as we met so many intersting people!!!!! The view from the property is spectacular and there are very comfortable chairs to relax in while enjoying the view. The tents have very comfortable beds and nice chairs to sit in. The tents are spread out so that you have privacy which is wonderful. I LOVE that there are NO TVs anywhere to be found, no cell service, and only wifi in the dining pavilion to maintain peace and quiet in the cabin area. There are some things to be aware of: 1. there are no screens on the shuttered windows of the tents. 2. there is no age requirement like at some remote lodges like this that I've been to which forbid any guests under age 16 - here there is NO age restrictions so if little kids running around and making a lot of noise bothers you consider that. 3. there can be a long, steep hike to and from many tents to bathhouse and dining pavilion. 4. Mosquitos are many and ferocious at certain times of day

This was an amazing experience. The site is about as good as it gets, so you start off inn a beautiful place. Then add the lovely, welcoming hosts, a couple from Memphis who built the camp 15 years ago, extremely comfortable accommodations and drop-dead delicious food. A friend and I went for four nights to relax and couldn't have found a better spot. We hiked two of our three full days there (using our hosts' suggestions) and spent the third day relaxing and reading at the camp. Can't wait to go back!
