As you stand in awe of the giant redwoods and sequoias, you’ll understand why so many nature lovers flock to Sequoia National Park. This astounding California scenery is even more amazing when you can spend the night amidst these wonders of nature. The hotels, campsites, cabins and B&Bs around Sequoia National Park help provide the same sense of relaxation you’ll feel when gazing up at these tall timbers. So, here’s our pick of the best, bookable on Culture Trip.
Within walking distance of Lodgepole Village in Sequoia National Park, yet far enough to savor the silence, the Lodgepole Campground Upper Loop makes roughing it feel easy. Seasonal amenities like food storage lockers, a camp store, a potable water supply and laundry machines are small touches that make your stay all the more convenient. This tent-only site on the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River surrounds you with lodgepole pines and gives you instant access to the Twin Lakes and Tokopah Trailheads.

Rent out the whole three-bedroom River House and give your family the ultimate Sequoia vacation at Buckeye Tree Lodge & Cabins. You can’t go wrong with a cabin either, as all lodging sits less than 1,500ft (400m) from the entrance to the national park. We’ll admit, though, that grilling out on your private deck overlooking the river is one tranquil memory that only the River House can deliver. It nearly rivals the relaxing sunsets found at the top of the flume walk.
You’ve hoofed it far enough through Kings Canyon and Sequoia; give your tired toes a rest at Silver City Mountain Resort. Kick off your hiking boots and settle into a private cabin with a soaking tub, fireplace and views of the snow-capped mountains in the distance. Fall asleep each night listening to the wildlife and slip on your loafers to meander down to Silver City Restaurant for locally sourced, hearty salads or a Grizzly burger and a scrumptious slice of pie.

Who said anything about roughing it on your visit to Sequoia National Park? The Parks Inn B&B wants to wrap you in the warm embrace of luxury lodging, including a gourmet breakfast and an outdoor jacuzzi. Their historical grounds include an original settler’s house from the 1880s and dozens of fruit trees that provide the bounty for your morning breakfast buffet. If the sparkling swimming pool doesn’t convince you to stay, the hospitality of your hosts will.
Make the heart of Kings Canyon National Park your base camp at Cedar Grove Lodge. Minimalist rooms with private bathrooms and desks will get you up and moving each morning to tackle the endless trails around the lodge. This glaciated canyon puts you within hiking distance of Muir Rock, Grand Sentinel and North Dome. A market and snack bar on-site are stocked with the fuel you need to see every sight before you check out.
You don’t need to be an intrepid mountaineer to stay at John Muir Lodge. You only need to desire a comfortable, quiet place to spend quality time with your family. Whether playing board games by the fire in the Great Room or swapping stories with new friends on the porch, you’re welcome to be as laid-back as you want. When you’re ready for a hike, the 2.5mi (4km) trail to Panoramic Point is worth every step.
