Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon property reviews

  • Summer vacation

    "We had a FANTASTIC time. Excellent river swimming in you own private swimming hole. My 10 yr old son and friend loved the swimming. Sequoia Nat'l Park was 20 mins away. There is no cell or TV reception, so be sure to bring lots of DVD's to watch if you'll be staying indoors. My son wants to return next year. Great summer vacation spot!! Home is older, but has all your needs."

  • Family Vacation

    "Great fit for a large group... everyone had plenty of room! Kings Canyon was about 30/45 min drive up the windy road. .. but we all had a great time! We think the grills on the big bbq need a lil upgrade... old with a few holes on the grills and a few rooms need new mattress but the lil things did not stop us from having a great time! Far Away from the grocery so make sure you bring plenty of food! Everything was clean and in good condition! Thank you for having us! And thank you Melinda for all your help!"

  • Good Time

    "Had a great experience with some friends. We rented the house for two days and it worked perfectly for our purposes. The views were excellent, the property was great and the bunk room upstairs was perfect for our sized group. I thought I remembered reading there was a ping pong table, which we never saw, but that wasn't a big deal. The house is nice. The décor is limited, but we weren't looking for much. It completely served our purposes and we had a great time. Definitely recommend to others."

  • Sxcots invasion

    "House full of character, kids loved the fireman's pole and novel features - just put some cushions at the bottom for reassurance. Ideal spot to explore the Park."

Sequoia, Kings Canyon Travel Tips

Year-Round Explorations at Sequoia and Kings Canyon Vacation Rentals

The parks are open all year long to visitors and each season brings its own range of attractions. The vast majority of visitors travel during the summer months of July and August. Be aware if you are planning traveling during peak season that the access roads can sometimes get congested, and the campsites and picnic sites can get very full. This is one of the reasons why staying in a vacation home is a great idea. You can still go exploring and sightseeing by day and in the evening, you can return to your own private cabin. In the spring, the valleys are covered with a mass of colorful wild flowers. The Sequoia trees are sometimes still covered with snow and the rivers are generally swift. Be cautious if going fishing as the currents in the rivers can be very strong.

By June, summer has generally set in with warm sunny days inviting exploration. Enjoy nature trails and guided walks where you can spot birds and other wildlife. Autumn is a great time to visit the parks. Not only are the fall colors magnificent but the park is also generally less crowded. Some of the sites such as the Crystal Cave close in late October so make sure that you travel before then. In the winter months, the region generally receives heavy snowfalls. Some of the campsites remain open and rangers offer guided snowshoe walks through the park. If you enjoy the tranquility of wintertime, this is the season for you to visit.

Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Cabins

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two parks that are great to explore with the family. At both parks, you will find information centers where you can arrange guided ranger hikes and attend informative talks and film presentations. There are extensive wildlife viewing opportunities and visitors must be aware of the dangers that larger animals, such as bear, pose. If you are at a picnic site, do not lay the food out in the open as it could attract wild animals. One of the greatest attractions is the General Sherman Tree reported to be the largest single-trunk tree in the world. Nearby is the Giant Forest Museum where you can learn more about the natural habitat of the area. There are also the Crystal Caves which are generally only open during the summer months.

Finding Your Way to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Lodging
