2.5 week itinerary - could use some advice please

We've (my husband and I) worked out a rough itinerary for our trip to Northern California in September. We have a good idea of the first part but need a little help.

Sept 8th - arrive in SFO. Spend 3 nights in a hotel in SF

Sept 11th - pick up small campervan and travel to wine areas of Sonoma/Napa. Spend probably a couple of nights camping, possibly in Bothe-Napa Valley SP

Sept 13th - travel to Lake Tahoe - spend 2 nights (undecided which campground or area)

Sept 15th - Travel to Yosemite - spend 2 nights (possibly Tuolumne Meadows)

Sept 17th - not sure - maybe Kings Canyon - what would be the best route and place to stop after Yosemite?

Sept 18th - Santa Barbara?

Want to travel up the coast then - flying out of SFO on Sept 25th. Would like to spend time along Big Sure & Monterey but not sure how to split it. We love the outdoors, good food, and some lazing around too :)

I would repost this thread in the general California forum as that would be a better forum for planning your overall route and general itinerary. tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g28926-i29-Califor…

On your question of route from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, you would go south on California Highway 41 from Yosemite to Fresno, then east on California Highway 180 to Kings Canyon National Park. About 3.5 to 4 hours of driving time from Yosemite Valley to the entrance gate of Kings Canyon National Park.
