For visiting Sequoia NP, we stayed at a private RV park in Three Rivers because there is a 22-ft limit on 198 from Three Rivers to the Potwisha Campground. After driving the hairpins on 198 in our Ram 2500, I understand why. Our truck was long enough on those curves without even towing anything.

When went left Sequoia for King's Canyon, we drove around through Visalia to go to Walmart for groceries, then took 180 into KCNP. We wanted to see both halves of KCNP, so we stayed in between at the beautiful Princess Campground. Princess is located in a grove of huge sequoias and we actually had an entire cg loop to ourselves (in June!). While in the park, we also visited Hume Lake and Grant Grove cgs, but liked ours better than either. We would go back to Princess in a minute if we were ever back there and have recommended it to several friends.

Find a long site in Lodgepole and I think you would be fine.

If your setup to dry camping, generator ect. you can stay in between both parks at Big Meadows. Best way up is Hwy 180 and once through the park entrance you'll come to the Generals Hwy take it 12 miles to the entrance to Big Meadows, dispersed camping is free and can visit both parks from there. Be sure to water up as no water in BM.


Is the road to Big Meadows a road fit for the OP's 35 foot 5er??? . . . [emoticon]


Yes it is I pull double (64') in with no problem paved all the way.

We stayed at Sequoia RV Ranch, Three Rivers, CA, when we were visiting the parks. Just about 5 minutes from the park gate.

X2 We stayed there in May this year and had one of their sites that backs up to the Creek. Nice swim Beach and good fishing right at the rear of our trailer. Like said before, you are very close to the entrance gate for SNP.

Thanks. I will look into Princess.

No problem whatsoever. Any advice is appreciated.

From what I see online, it seems like Dorst Creek has more larger sites and is more RV friendly. Has anyone stayed at Dorst Creek, Sunset, or any of the NPS campgrounds that could shed some more light? Thanks everyone.

Azalea might be ok -- just watch the branches.
