Sequoia High Sierra Camp Information

Description

Open From June 14th till September 15th 2019, The Sequoia High Sierra Camp is nestled on a steep wooded hillside overlooking Kings Canyon. The Camp is the last luxury Sequoia lodging outpost before you enter two million acres of roadless High Sierra wilderness, which extends from Sequoia to Yosemite. An oasis in the wilderness, the Camp consists of 21 spacious canvas bungalows , an alfresco Dining Pavilion with fireplace, and a central bath house with modern flush toilets and hot showers. Three daily meals are included in the overnight rates -- a full mountain breakfast buffet, a pack-your-own picnic lunch and a casually elegant dinner. Luxury Canvas Cabins The Camp is accessed by a short hike from the parking area. The Sequoia High Sierra Camp is a peaceful vacation venue with a staff dedicated to the comfort and relaxation of their guests. The Camp's daily routines are governed by long, sunny days and cool brisk nights. There are spots for peaceful reading, as well as miles of hiking trails and meadows to be explored. There is fly-fishing in the streams of Rowell Meadow and Boulder Creek an a little farther afield, the glacial lakes of the Kings - Kaweah Divide. Sequoia High Sierra Camp offers 21 deluxe canvas bungalows that are comfortable, yet reflective of the great wilderness setting, essentially a tent-en-suite. They measure approximately 330 square feet (14' x 24'), on a concrete slab foundation, canvas side walls and roof, doors, and shuttered windows. The bungalows are sited throughout the hillside of a red fir and lodgepole pine forest. The location provides wonderful views of Kings Canyon and privacy for each bungalow.

Booking Terms and Conditions

Directions

  • Road from Fresno/ Visalia (55.0 miles)


    You can reach the Sequoia High Sierra Camp from Fresno (via Highway 180) or from Visalia (via Highway 198). Both routes enter the Sequoia/King's Canyon National Park boundaries from the west; there is no road access from the east.
    We highly recommend taking route 180 (from Fresno) – it is an easier drive, less winding and not as prone to traffic and/or road maintenance delays. Following are driving directions from both directions:
    Directions from Fresno
    We suggest that you turn off your GPS and follow these instructions. First, take Ca 180 east from Fresno all the way to the entrance station of Kings Canyon National Park. There is no gas in the park, so fill up in Squaw Valley or Dunlap. Proceed through the park entrance station (about 53 miles from Fresno ). Sequoia and Kings Canyon share the same park entrance gates. One mile past the entrance, turn right at the General Highway intersection. The sign directs you towards Sequoia National Park. You will now be on the Generals Highway. This highway doesn’t have a number like 180 or 198 it is simply called The Generals Highway. Follow this road for 8 miles and look on your right for the Big Baldy Trailhead sign. Soon after the Big Baldy sign, look to the left and you will see and turn left onto the Big Meadows/Horse Corral Road. This road is marked with a sign indicating horseback riding. Turn left onto this road.
    Please read our Hiking In page for directions from Big Meadow/Horse Corral Road to camp.
    Directions from Visalia
    Take Highway 99 to Visalia. Exit Highway 198 east to the Sequoia National Park entrance (about 45 miles). You will now be on the Generals Highway. Follow this road for approximately 40 miles until you see the sign for Big Meadows/Horse Corral Road on your right. This road is marked with a sign indicating horseback riding. Turn right onto this road. Follow this road --The  Big Meadows Horse Corral Road (FS 14S11) --  for 12.5 miles until you reach the Sequoia High Sierra Camp/Marvin Pass Turn off. Important: there are numerous turnouts on this road; always stay on the paved road. Along the paved road, you will pass several campgrounds, drive over a couple of single lane bridges and past the turn off to Horse Corral Pack Station
    Just before the end of the paved road, you will see a small sign directing hikers to turn right. You will also see a sign board with the initials SHSC, also directing you to turn right. SHSC are the initials for Sequoia High Sierra Camp. This is an important road mark, so please take care not to miss it!
    For the next 2.5 miles, the road is unpaved, dusty and narrow (single lane in numerous spots.). Please watch for potholes and other vehicles. This section of road is not recommended for low profile vehicles. Once again, there are several turnouts on this road; always stay on the main roadway.
    At the end of the road you will be at the Marvin Pass Trailhead Parking Lot. This is where you will park to hike into the Sequoia High Sierra Camp. Park your vehicle and look for two large informational boards.
    To the left of these informational boards, you will see a post with a small metal box (angled). This is a trail registration form and needs to be filled out by all hikers. The trail begins at this box. Follow the SHSC signs to the Camp
    The trail is well marked with "SHSC" (Sequoia High Sierra Camp) signage. The trail climbs a total of 300 feet (mostly toward the beginning) and leads directly to the Camp Dining pavilion (total hiking distance: slightly less than 1 mile).
