Sequoia Camping

I'm heading to Sequoia NP this summer. I am looking at Sunset CG in the Grant's Grove area. My alternate is Dorst Creek CG.

Any opinions on these or others? I will be towing my 28' International and I have read about steep, windy roads throughout this park. I'll be coming in hwy 180 from the NW.

I was afraid all the sites would book up do I reserved Dorst Creek. They seemed to have more sites for out 28' AS; Sunsets larger sites were booked.

Can't wait!

We are headed to Potwisha on 1May with our Interstate. Looking forward to it. When are you going to Sequoia?

Such beautiful NPs! Wherever you end up, remember that highway 180 is the only viable route in or out. The southern route, through Sequoia, is extremely narrow and winding with hairpin turns. I think there is a length restriction in place, also. Sunset Campground is actually in Kings Canyon NP, and is one of our favorites, as is Azalea in the same area. And we also love the Cedar Grove area, down in Kings Canyon, but we've not taken our 23' Airstream down there. The very narrow campground roads, with big trees and boulders to navigate around, are very "tight" for larger trailer+truck setups. Towing with a shorter SUV would be easier. Have a great trip !

We just came from 3 Rivers. We like having full hook ups when in one place for a while . We spent 7 nights at Sequoia RV Ranch.
Yes, the trek in is long on the southern route. You can go north outside the park and go in on 180. Our visit was wonderful.
Some of the park was still closed until May. There were many people in rental class Cs in and around Potwisha. I think 22 feet is as long as they recommended. The switchbacks are tight from the south. I was paying close attention in our F250 !

We actually skipped sequoia all together cuz the ranger did not recommend a southerly entrance with out Rav 4 and 16 foot! We drove around and went into Yosemite and kings canyon instead. They were beautiful. We stayed in Azalea in Kings Canyon. It was great. Best yet. Towering trees and beds of pine needles. Easy roads and large enough spots for all sizes. Then we stayed in Yosemite in the higher elevations away from the valley. So crowded down in the valley. Can't think of the name, maybe Porcupine flats??That was deff smaller sites and hard to drive into. Lucky we have a 16 sport. We can fit into any spot. Our trip was in the fall plenty of sites to pick from. Click image for larger version
