  • FAMILY ADVENTURE

    "We had a great time at this cabin with our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 toddlers!) Our kids loved all the toys, books, and games provided at the house. Everything you need to feel right as home is waiting for you. The beds are super comfy, towels are soft and cozy, and everything is well kept. We enjoyed our first day hiking at Balch Park (a twisty trip up the mountain but worth the drive to see the huge sequoia trees and hidden falls!). Our second day was spent hiking Lower Coffee Camp, a lunch at The Hamburger Stand in Springville, followed by a hike of the wildflowers. If you have small children (like we do!), be sure to bring a backpack carrier as the hikes involve a lot of boulders and require balance (not something toddler are very good at!). We hope to return to the cabin later this summer so we can enjoy the pool (it never got warm enough this trip) and to hopefully jump in the waters at the Hidden Falls and Lower Coffee Camp!"

  • Wondeful home, Wonderful hosts!

    "My family and I stayed with Lona and Greg in late August for four nights. This home is beautiful and warm. Lona has put her heart and soul into creating a magical space. She has an incredible eye for detail and beauty. Although we were disappointed that the river running through their back yard had dried up due to severe drought conditions, this did not hamper our stay. There are plenty of great watering holes and beautiful spots to get your feet wet close to the home. The highlight of our stay was when we were asked to stay for dinner with our hosts and their friends visiting from Hawaii. A beautiful paella and other delicious foods. Wonderful hosts and a beautiful home."

  • Can't wait to come back!

    "The house, the yard, the peace and quiet... you can't top it. There was everything we needed in the house to have a fun, adventurous, relaxing 3 days with our 7-year-old son. We BBQ'd, we looked at stars, we saw wildlife, and we can't wait to come back. The house was comfortable, stylish, and functional -- it had everything we wanted for a spectacular family getaway."

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

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two adjacent State Parks located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. The parks are within an easy day's drive from Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland or San Francisco. Allow for between three to five hours for the drive. There are no buses or train routes to the parks. If traveling from further afield, the nearest airport is the Fresno Yosemite International Airport. From there, you can rent a car and drive the remaining 60 or so miles to the park entrance.
