Nothing beats Sequoia National Park camping if record-breaking trees are what you’re after. But if you appreciate a little scenic variety, Lodgepole Campground should be your new go-to. The Kaweah River, Giant Forest Grove, and a nearby meadow bursting with wildflowers will make any kind of camper happy. At an elevation of 6,700 feet, Lodgepole Campground’s mountain views might just give nearby General Sherman (largest tree in the world!) a run for its money. Summer nights get chilly up here, but you can warm yourself up by the fire ring, or bundle up to enjoy the nightly Interpretive Ranger programs.

Drop some Lodgepole Campground knowledge on us.
Nestled just a few miles out of the giant forest, in Sequoia National Park, is Lodgepole Campground. One of the most beautiful campgrounds my group has been to. The campground is large and features numerous sites, some more in the woods, others closer to the Kaweah River. With a market, gift shop, laundry, bathroom, and showers the grounds have great amenities for everyone. Each site comes with ample space, picnic table, fire pit, and bear locker.
The most notable feature is the proximity to Sequoia National Park. The campground is minutes away from the Giant Forest, Moro Rock, and miles and miles of hiking trails. Had an incredible time this summer, will definitely be back.
Campsites are a bit bigger than I had anticipated. Definitely room for more than one tent, depending on how big your tents are. We brought a 6 people tent and had enough space for another one. Great location, near the trailhead for Tokopah Falls which is a must see!
I was amazed by the beauty of this campground. It is also impressively well kept. Tons of trees, mountain views, and the sound of rushing water was what led me here. I've camped everywhere in California and this is easily a top 3 for me. It is a rather large campground and in the late spring/summer when we were there it was packed with tons of happy campers! The good news is that since it is such a large campground there is a chance you can snag a spot last minute if you get there early enough :) There's also an awesome visitor center down the road from the campground that has a couple places to eat/grocery store AND coin operated showers :)
Some of the sites are not large (and if you don't have a reservation they'll ask how larger your tent is when you arrive), but this place is definitely worth the stay (and worth the hassle trying to get a spot). The stream that runs through the middle of the campground and the proximity to all of the awesome Sequoia sites make this the perfect campground for the park.
