Lodgepole Campground in stunning Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is a perfectly placed campsite, just two miles from General Sherman. Lodgepole Campground is right on the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River, fed by snowmelt from the high Sierras.

The campground is dotted with lodgepole pine, ted fir, and shrubs, while towering groves of giant sequoias and craggy granite peaks dominate the focal points. This campground is open year round, with warm days and cool nights in the summer and snow conditions in the winter. Lodgepole campground is popular with tent and RV campers, and offers toilets, drinking water, picnic tables, fire rings, and bear boxes. Lodgepole Village has access to a visitor center, nightly ranger programs, a market, deli, snack bar, gift shop, post office, coin-operated showers and laundry facilities. 

Lodgepole Campground connects to over 40 miles of hiking trails, including the Big Trees Trail (home to General Sherman and General Grant). Other popular vistas such as Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow are just a short drive away. Crystal Cave, one of hundreds of marble caves in the park, provides visitors with unmatched views of rock formations, fossils, rare minerals, and unique wildlife. Tickets are required in advance for Crystal Cave and can be purchased at the Lodgepole Visitor Center. Be sure to visit the Giant Forest Museum and Beetle Rock Education Center.
