Hey there, roadtripper. Don't fret... stay in the park!

Wife and I went 1-1/2 years ago to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks and stayed at the (at the time) new Wuksachi Village. The lodge hosts basic hotel rooms in separate buildings (w/ areas for cross country snow skis) and has off-season rates. But a very nice lodge dining room -- sort of a "little Awanahee" -- as well as that special little "after the hike" must... a bar lounge!

In Sequoia National Park, 4 miles (6.5km) from Giant Forest; 23 miles (37km) from Sequoia Park entrance. Modern hotel rooms in several lodge buildings. Restaurant & gift shop nearby. Elevation 6500 feet (1980m).

Another option is Grant Grove Village. Cabins and such. Lodging outside the parks in Three Rivers looked very basic and right off the main road -- didn't look like hiking opportunities around there.

You will find links to these hotels & lodges thru the National Parks Website at:

When will yo be going? If in winter months, you may need to have chains on your tires -- it is a road-hugging adventure up the mountains! (We still saw lots of snow in May.)

Sequioa National Park has a beautiful lodge where you can stay. It's right in the heart of the park. Very well kept and clean. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food is very good and hearty. The staff are the type of people who embody all the good stuff about Californians.
If your looking for a place to hang out late and drink beers and shoot pool, you'll be out of luck. The place shuts down pretty early, but it didn't seem to matter. I was in bed by 9pm and slept like a baby. Don't know if it was the jet lag or the montain air.
I stayed there w/ my fiancee for 2 nights 2 years ago at this time, and it was probably the best part of our trip to California.
