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. The campground is the closest to many popular day-hike and wilderness trailheads in the Giant Forest Area.

Lodgepole campground is very popular and its sites are reservable. Same day reservation or walk up sales are seldom available during the summer especially for weekends and holidays.

The campground is 1/4-mile (400m) from Lodgepole Village, which in summer offers a visitor center, nightly Interpretive Ranger programs, market, deli, snack bar, gift shop, post office, coin-operated showers and a laundromat.

The entrance fee for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is $20 for 1-7 days. All Inter-Agency passes are accepted at the Entrance Stations.

Being close to nature a million years in the making

We stayed here while on our trip out west. The General Sherman was an awesome tree and the tunnel through the felled Sequoia tree. It is hard to lean back any to look at the top of a tree 400' high. It was an awesome adventure.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
