Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park


Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park are famous for their stunning groves of Giant Sequoia trees - the largest trees in the world.  Together, these two sister parks make for a wonderful family vacation filled with beautiful hiking trails, rushing rivers, waterfalls, and the amazing sequoias. 

Summer time brings warm temperatures and cool evenings, perfect for camping, hiking, and wading in the icy creeks. Check out the many first-come, first-served campsites in Sequoia and Kings Canyon and create some family memories around a bag of marshmallows.
