Various: Lodging In/Near Kings Canyon NP

There is a variety of lodging available in King's Canyon National Park (Grant Grove Village and Cedar Grove Village) along with Sequoia National Park and Giant Sequoia National Monument (King's Canyon Lodge). I did not stay here but I stayed one night each at a below average Days Inn in Fresno and a nice independent motel, the Oakhurst Lodge, in Oakhurst.

Various: Camping at or Near Kings Canyon NP

There are seven camping areas inside Kings Canyon National Park. Locations range from warm foothills to cool shaded forests. The campgrounds closest to the sequoias are in the Grants Grove Area. I did not camp here but wanted to let you know what is available.

Cedar Grove Lodge: Cedar Grove Lodge

This is a really small motel at Cedar Grove that offers only basic amenities. The rooms are relatively clean, but are more cramped. There's a snack bar and gift lodge on the downstairs level. There's nothing really special about this lodge, but it's convenient when you want to explore Kings Canyon.

John Muir Lodge: A Lodge Near the Big Trees

The John Muir Lodge is a 36-room lodge in Kings Canyon National Park that is located near Grant Grove, King's Canyon's largest group of Giant Sequoia trees. The lodge itself is fairly basic, with clean rooms and a large lobby, but with no telephones or televisions in the rooms. It is certainly not in the same league as the Ahwahnee in Yosemite National Park, the El Tovar in Grand Canyon National Park, or the lodge in Crater Lake National Park. It is more like staying at a chain motel without telephones or televisions. One stays here because it is convenient to all of the major drivable sights in Kings Canyon and Sequioa National Parks. Location, location, location! The John Muir Lodge has no restaurant. Food (a grocery store and restaurant) is available in Grant Grove Village, a 2 minute drive down the hill from the lodge.
