“camping under the sequoias!”
Lodgepole campground is located 2 miles from the Giant Forest sequoia grove and 21 miles from Sequoia National Park entrance. The campground is located ¼ miles from Lodgepole village along the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River. Opening and closing dates are approximate. Lodgepole pine, Red fir, and shrubs forest the campground, while towering groves of giant sequoias and craggy granite peaks dot the landscape. The Marble Fork of the Kaweah River is fed by snowmelt and flows seasonally through the site. This region is characterized by warm days and cool nights in the summer and deep snow and cold days in the winter.
Gorgeous scenery, a shuttle that leaves from the campground that takes you right to the park's best attractions, ranger-led talks and hikes, hot showers, a market and laundry facilities located conveniently nearby... seriously, a perfect place to camp.
