  • Large Cabin close to Kings Canyon and Sequoia

    "We stayed here (4 families) over the Labor Day weekend. The cabin is about 14 miles up the mountain. really in the wilderness. There is a lake in front of the cabin. It does have all the amenities (No Internet). Word of caution, anything besides Verizon would not work up here or in the national parks. If you are going with the large group and different cars then its worth having a radio for communication. Unless everyone has Verizon. The cabin is really close to Kings Canyon entrance on hwy 180. Dry Creek rd goes to CA-245 which gets to hwy 180. Only 30 minutes from Cabin. The cabin has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bedrooms with bunk beds and 1 room with all bunk beds, since this is a christian camp. The only issue the bunk beds room has is no door to close on one end. However since we really came to the Cabin at night time to sleep we did not care. But the bunk beds are very uncomfortable, I suggest bring some kind of padding. Kitchen has everything, the electric stove is hard to use, the way it manages temperature is by constantly turning on and off. So if you want to boil water it takes for ever. Coffee maker did not work. Over all a very good experience and great stay. If you want to see Sequoia NP, then its better to go down to CA-198 and then get to the park entrance. Otherwise you have to take the junction from Kings Canyon to go to Sequoia and it would take long, these are connected parks. In my opinion Kings canyon is a much better national park with a lot more things to see then Sequoia. I do recommend going to Lake Hume, very very nice lake, and there is a restaurant there. The lake is really really beautiful."

  • Nice big house in great location

    "The house was perfectly located on top of the hill providing 360 views all around. Minutes from the national park. House has everything you need and the owners really goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable, providing everything you need. The deck was a great outdoor space. Highly recommended!"

  • Wonderful Family Getaway On The River

    "We drove up from LA (less than four hours) for a week long getaway with our 6 month old son. The house was big, comfortable, clean, stocked with everything we needed. We were isolated enough that it was amazingly quiet, and we could go days without hearing a car or seeing people, but close enough to amenities in Three Rivers, we could pop out for a great burger, or sandwich anytime. There were hawks and woodpeckers to watch during the day, bats at dusk, and sky full of beautifully bright stars at night. The river was clear and cool, deep enough for taking dips, full of places to lounge around and read etc, and great for rock hopping walks. We spent most of our time right there and could've happily stayed so much longer. And this is all before we even mention the proximity to Sequoia park -- which with the giant forest, crystal cave, moro rock is one of the absolute wonders of California. A great place and ever so glad we went."

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.
