The parks cover a large geographic area therefore, a pull car is a must for those traveling in an RV. The roads are not well suited for large RVs and on some portions the maximum length allowed is 22 feet. In the Lodgepole area the free bus service is excellent however, it's not going to take you to all destinations in the park.
Only Potwisha and Azalea campgrounds are open all year.
Dump stations are located at Potwisha, Lodgepole, Princess, and Dorst Creek campgrounds.
The park is black bear habitat. Bear boxes are provided in every campground in the park. All food must be stored in these boxes unless it's kept out of sight in an RV. Food may not be left out at any time. Additional bear rules and information can be found at the restrooms. Do not feed the bears at any time.
Take your time while driving on the parks roads. The roads are winding and driving fast may make your occupants car sick. In addition, there are steep drops off the road at many locations. Passing other vehicles can be just plain dangerous. The roads were built around the turn of the last century and were designed for vehicles of that era.
Giant Sequoia trees in the park can reach 300 feet tall and are really the main attraction for the park. One of the most interesting places to view giant trees is Grants Grove. There is a walking path that runs through the grove.
Bike Riding opportunities in the park are limited to the campgrounds except for the most experienced riders. Highway 198 and 180 can be dangerous with fast moving vehicles and blind corners. The eight mile road to Crystal Cave is the one exception. It's a bueatiful ride and it has limited vehicle use. Unfortunately, to access this road it's best to drive your private car to the start of this highway. RVs not allowed on the cave road.
Lodgepole Campground seemed to have the most accommodations for tenters and RVers. There is a market, showers, laundry, dump station, Information Center, and shuttle bus just to name a few. There is also Wuksachi Village a short two miles from Lodgepole by shuttle that has a lodge, restaurant, and free WiFi.
Azalea Campground at Grant Grove Village is another convenient location to stay for tenters and RVers. There is a market, restaurant, and information center. However, there is no bus service, no dump station, and no laundry. The cell service in this area is excellent and there is free WiFi at Grant Village.
There are three gas stations in the park. Kings Canyon Lodge, Hume Lake, and Stony Creek Village. Diesel is available at the last two. Campbase recommends filling your vehicles fuel tank before entering the National Park.
For things to do, make sure you visit the General Grant Tree and walk the short path around the forest there. It's a plesent place to spend some time and there are some interesting stories there. See the photos tab and look for Grant Grove. It's only about half a mile from Grant Grove Lodge and Azalia Campground.
