Lodgepole Campground is in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in central California. It is situated on the banks of the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River, at 6700 feet (2042m) in elevation. It is just 2 miles (3km) from the Giant Forest sequoia grove and the General Sherman Tree - the world's largest tree in volume.
