Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • So relaxing!

    "It was a three night trip for just my husband and I and we enjoyed this beautiful home and everything it offered. We spent hours on the back patio and along the river. It was so peaceful and private. Our special moments were shared with ducks and quail that frequent the backyard. Our stay was so wonderful we ended up sleeping in both mornings. What a way to rejuvenate! The added touch was the owner, Laura left us a basket with goodies and a bottle of wine along with a handwritten note. You can really tell she cares about her guests. We will be back!! - Angel K."

  • Perfect place for a getaway

    "My Fiance and I stayed in the studio of the Davidgil house as bday vacation for me. We had the best time, and I will never forget the peace and serenity I felt there. We woke up and had our coffee by the river every morning, and ending our evenings with a campfire and listening to music all weekend long. Greg and Lona were the most gracious hosts, and we felt a bond with them right away. If all goes well I plan to go back and have a small wedding at the property, its just THAT GORGEOUS!"

  • Get away from the city weekend!

    "We loved staying the weekend here! Thank you for the bottle of wine that was awaiting us on our arrival. First thing we see outside the living room window were 10 deer grazing in the front yard. The cabin was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We were lucky enough to have a very warm Saturday so we drove down to the river and hiked to a spot all our own. it was gorgeous. We had lunch at Pierpoint Springs restaurant. They have delicious hamburgers. We try and come up to Camp Nelson every year since discovering it about 7 years ago. Every time we come up we find the break we've been looking for. No wi-fi or cell reception (except at the restaurant). We usually play cards and look at the stars for entertainment and barbecue for dinner. We usually come up in the summer, it was nice to see what it's like at this time of year. Sunday was a colder day and it had rained Saturday night. We went to see the 5th largest Sequoia, Stagg tree, which is 3000 years old. Your cabin is one of our favorites now, for the location, right in Camp Nelson, and for the very good ambiance. We really hope to be back soon, thank you so much!"

  • Perfect Anniversary

    "As parents of 3 kids under 7 years old we rarely have time for ourselves. We wanted to plan a trip for our 10th wedding anniversary that was far enough away from home, but close enough in case of emergencies. This place was perfect! Almost rather not write the review and keep this a secret. We were welcomed, given the tour of the land and treated like family - something so rare. Thank you for the great conversation! They are so welcoming and genuinely excited to share this small area of God's creation rich in local history. Completely surrounded by sights and sounds of nature . . no cars, no people. My wife and I felt like we were completely alone in a land far far away. While my wife isn't much into roughing it in the 'woods', I was in paradise. Spent half a day hiking in the national park seeing the giant trees for the first time. The rest of the time walking the property and especially enjoying the sight and sound of the river that brought back so many childhood memories. Her paradise came after "roughing it" all day with me, coming home to the cottage to a warm bath, relaxing on the deck enjoying the view, napping, then under a blanket keeping warm in the living room taking in a dvd or listening to music without any interruptions. As much as we enjoyed our time alone, we can't wait to be able take our kids for a few days, hopefully making it an annual trip. Thank you James and Kathleen for allowing us to recharge ourselves and our marriage in the Kaweah Cottage. God bless you always! R&D"

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.
