This dog-friendly campground sits at an elevation of 6,500 feet, located in the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. This is a central location in California’s jagged Sierra Nevada range. As you enter from near the Grant Grove Village, you will arrive at the campground four miles in.
The campground is located in mixed conifer forest of fir, sugar pines, sequoias, and incense cedar trees. There is plenty of wildlife, comprising of mule deer, black bear, squirrels, and a range of resident birds. Over a thousand years of geologic processes have fashioned the marble, granite, and other rocks to create a dynamic landscape. You and Fido will enjoy these surroundings. The park has thousands of lakes and ponds as well as miles of streams and rivers.
There are 14 mid-sized group sites that you can reserve, while the 36 individual sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each group site comes with a fire ring, three picnic tables, and two bear boxes, and is good for 7 to 15 people. The sites are roomy and nicely placed just a quarter of a mile from the Grant Grove Village. Campfire programs are offered at the amphitheater nearby.
You can go for a hike from your campsite to a sequoia grove. Here you can see the Nation's Christmas Tree, the General Grant Tree, and the sole living memorial to our veterans. Hiking to the beautiful 50-foot Ella Falls is another option. The Panoramic Point offers a spectacular view of the high Sierras. Remember to carry poop bags to clean up after your doggo and do your part to maintain the beauty of the place.
Other activities include fishing, boating, paddling, biking, horseback riding as well as wildlife watching. Make sure to keep Fido on a leash and attend to him at all times. And if you are in the mood, you can take the hour-long drive to the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park.
