Lodgepole Campground is situated directly along the river in a truly beautiful landscape! Every space has it's own picnic table and fireplace. There are flush toilets nearby and if you want to buy some food, shower or laundry you can do all of it in the visitor centre. A lovely place to stay while you are in Sequoia National Park!

My second time here. The best part about this campground is that you don't have to rough it. You are at walking distance to basic amenities: showers, groceries, restaurants. It is at 6700 feet, so it gets quite cold at night and especially early in the morning. The temperature dropped to the high 30s in June. Prepare accordingly.

We love to camp here. It is convenient with the store, showers, and even laundry if you are staying for a long time. Sites are nice, maintained and good sized. Has a few really nice hiking trails in back of campground. We try to make it out here every year.

This is a great campsite in the heart of Sequoia. The lot was level with plenty of room for relaxing and enjoying the views. It's a short walk from the info center, store, restaurants and shuttles that take you around the park. We would definitely stay there again.

My second time here. My favorite camground of Seq. You are up about 8,000 feet- so it canbe 60 degrees up there and 101 down at three rivers. The trees I miss! Incredible views! Campgrounds 50-130's are the best spots. Most likely ai will be back this year.

I was driving solo through the area with no overnight reservation. A lot of the park was closed due to a fire in the area and I was looking for a place to grab a bite. There was two snack bar type places inside the market at Lodgepole and I got a reasonably priced Salmon burger and ate it outside...

The 3 of us pitched the tent after stowing all the food & supplies inside the bear box. The next afternoon, we walked over to take showers &...

This campground has so many things. A store at the entrance where you can get anything you forgot, and reasonably. Showers (coin operated), laundry facility, coffee, a little restaurant, and then there is the ca,pground itself. On the river, the sites are a little close together however, if you get a good site, fantastic. There is a great hiking trail...

I have camped at various campgrounds in Sequoia, and this is one of my favorites when you have kids. Lots of conveniences, older kids can walk to the store, food places and museum area by themselves. Ranger led night programs during summer, and a fun river (stream this time) to play in. There are also showers and a laundromat. When...

There are some nice sites that I saw near us (97, 98, 99). But there were also many crowded ones that were really quite terrible. There is a nice creek and if you can get a spot on it I think the stay will be enjoyable. The bathroom facilities were plentiful and clean.
