SHSC is a high camp located @ 8500'. I've been an active backpacker and hiker for a long time and I have to say there's something wonderful about hot showers and flushing toilets. Add to that gourmet dining and comfy beds it's an experience that I've never had and is in my opinion, totally unique in California. Run by a... More

Between the Bay and LA (3.5-4.5 hours) if you need to escape to the mountains this is a great glamping option. From the parking lot it is about a mile hike up to the camp. Hearty, healthy breakfast with fresh eggs to order, fruit and self-squeezed orange juice. Pack your own lunch and you are out hiking! Evening is for... More

Burr runs a world class glamorous camping experience at the Sequoia High Sierra Camp. The accommodations, food and beverages are fantastic. The hiking in every direction is some of the best that California has to offer. Far enough off the beaten path that only people who really want to have such a fantastic experience find there way there. One of... More

The SHSC is the Shangri-la of the high sierra country. The camp is amazing with the temple and wonderful day hikes. And to top it off, the warm shower and gourmet dinner is to live for.

My wife and I booked in for two nights based on a third hand recommendation. We drove out past all the camp clad hunters with their rifles to the parking area, discovering that not only were we not in the national park, we were so remote we couldn't easily use this as a base for exploring the giant Forrest.
