Sequioa in October

We plan on being at the Lodge Pole campground the nights of October 3, 4, 5 and 6 in Sequioa National Park.

That time of year its first come, first serve with no reservations but according to the park rangers getting a site should'nt be a problem.

Anyone who wants to join us look for our 2013' 16' Bambi Sport and our green Jeep Liberty.

Happy Travels,

Jack Dog

Sequoia in October

Hey Jack

As you probably already know that's a great time to visit Sequoia, with a lot less people and and plenty of Bear activity. If you haven't been, I would highly recommend going to Kings Canyon and camping at Sheeps Creek campground, it's awesome that time of the year. My wife an I camped there a couple years ago the first week of nov. (they close around the 15th) and had the place to ourselves along with deer, bear, a bobcat and a mountain lion. We were still tent camping then but we spent 4 days in a site on the river and had a peaceful blast.


We're heading to Yellowstone on the 22nd of Sept. or maybe we'd join ya, I love that place. There's a nice medium length hike that goes through the forest north of Moro Rock and up to Moro Rock and back that I highly recommend. I don't remember the starting point but, a trail map will show you clearly. I still think about that hike and how peaceful it was. There are some good hikes in Kings Canyon as well and you'll have them to yourself. If you go let me know what you think?
Happy Trails,
Mark

I favor Kings Canyon too. It's been years since I've been there. I don't even remember where we stayed in the campground or which one, but I do remember going to sleep at night and waking to a winter wonderland of about 12" of fresh snow in the morning. It was a good excuse to stay there a few extra days till the roads cleared.

We are planning to camp at the Dorst Creek NP campground with our 27FB in June. Does anybody know how strict they are about storing food in the bear caches? We are assuming we can just keep all our food inside the Airstream and close the windows and doors...

We visited Sequoia last summer and thought it was just amazing. Some of the road construction was pretty disruptive (as it is in Yellowstone), but worth the wait.

Your food is fine in your airstream as long as it's closed up tight. For example I wouldn't leave anything on counters etc. Trailer break ins are rare and bear boxes are in each site for excess food and or drink items if you need them. Never leave food or drinks in your car or in plain site. Have fun.... You'll enjoy the parks.


Mark,
The path not taken is the one I take.
