About

Lodgepole Campground is located in the breathtaking Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in central California's rugged Sierra Nevada range. Lodgepole is perched on the banks of the scenic and lengthy Marble Fork of the Kaweah River, at an elevation of 6,700 ft. The inspiring Giant Forest Grove and the mighty General Sherman Tree – the world's largest tree in volume – are just two miles from the campground. This is an American Black Bear habitat: all food, scented items and garbage must be properly stored in provided bear-resistant food storage boxes, not in your vehicle, 24 hours/day. Food-storage box dimensions are 28" high x 33" deep x 47" wide. There are no electric, water or sewer hookups; a free dump station is nearby with drinking water No generators are allowed in sites #36-60 and 69-144 Cell phone service is unreliable A California state fishing license is required Please don’t travel with firewood; get it at or near your camping destination. Help protect these parks from invasive species, such as insects, fungi and other pests living in firewood that can spread beyond campgrounds threatening the health of the forest. Local markets sell firewood and gathering dead and down wood is allowed. Shuttle service runs from Visalia to the Giant Forest within Sequoia National Park from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend; shuttle reservations are required for getting to the park and can be obtained by calling 1-877-BUS-HIKE or clicking here A separate free shuttle service runs within the Giant Forest area of Sequoia National Park with stops at the Wuksachi Lodge, Lodgepole Visitor Center and Market, Lodgepole Campground, Upper and Lower General Sherman Tree parking, Giant Forest Museum, Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow Federal Highways Construction Advisory: Vehicles longer than 22 feet will be prohibited on the Generals Highway between Hospital Rock and the Giant Forest Museum, starting March 19, 2018. This closure will remain in effect until construction has been completed. During construction, the FHWA will close one lane of the highway by blocking it with K-rail. This will narrow the highway, making it unable to safely accommodate vehicles over 22 feet. The highway closure is being extended to the nearest turn around locations for vehicles of that size to the south at Hospital Rock and north at Giant Forest Museum. Visitors with vehicles over 22 feet hoping to visit the Giant Forest or camp at Lodgepole and Dorst Creek Campgrounds are advised to enter via the Hwy 180 (northern) entrance to these parks.
