Ok traveling with no reservation in August in the Sequoia National Park it's probably not the best idea ever...but my boyfriend and I decided to change our summer plan such last minute that we thought: "we have a tend, we have a car, we will find a spot". In theory this is what camping should be, in the reality not so true. We entered the park on a light shower day that happen to be a Saturday and the main billboard told us all the campsite near by were full. The two available were 41 miles in. Not a great news. We drove with the hope to find a spot anyway and guess??? We entered the Lodgepole campground even if the sign was full. We asked and there was a spot available just for the night. We took it. It ended up to be a very nice one. We heard the creek running under us. We stayed just for a day but enough time to appreciate the trails, the woods (which is also collectible for camp fire), the shower - 3 dollar for a hot shower - the washer (1.25 for a small load) and the market near by.
It's definately a big campsite and it was packed but we had a blast. If you are planning to go make a reservation and check it out:)More
