Experience Sequoia National Park camping year round. Potwisha campground is located in the low Sierra Foothills, allowing the campground to stay open and relatively snow-free all winter long. Located a mere four miles from the Sequoia National Park entrance, Potwisha is one of the most accessible camping options in the area. No matter when you visit, you’ll hear the beckoning call of the Giant Forest. Got a sore neck from looking up at the world’s biggest trees all day? Head over to the nearby Giant Forest Museum to get all your most urgent tree questions answered.

I was a Sequoia newbie when my small dog and I arrived in the park after dark in the . We camped one night at Potwisha and found it super navigable/accessible. Dog friendly and no snow (whereas there was lots of snow further up in the park).

I went during the summer with only a tent and regretted it BIGTIME. Temperatures reached 105+ and the site was mostly rock which made it nearly impossible to put any stakes in. (no wonder everyone was in a camper)

The site is around 30-45 minutes to all of the great attractions. ALSO there is a river across the road of the campground which is really beautiful and cooled us off in the extreme heat.

Beautiful campground. Very popular. Nice during hot times of the year because you're close to water. Easy access to the trails to see the General Sherman.

Summer 17. We showed up in the middle of the day when it was 90+ I don't know if it was the drive there with out working AC that made the hot stay there seem nice or if it was the wonderful shade the trees provided for us, either way I wouldn't mind going back. BUT I would take a tent that actually allows the breeze in. (not all of the sites had shade. #10 had zero shade)
