Sierra Lodge is surrounded by breath taking views and is the perfect place to stay on your way into the Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Parks. Home to the awe-inspiring giant sequoia trees it is also home to General Sherman, the oldest living Sequoia. This mighty tree is now estimated to be around 2200 years old and still growing! At 275 feet tall it is 36 feet in diameter at the base.

THE PARK IS OPEN 24 HOURS A DAY, YEAR-ROUND.

While the Sequoias are among the largest living things on earth there are few opportunities to experience them in person. Approximately 75 groves currently exist, they are located only along the southern Sierra’s western slope between about 5,000 and 7,000 feet in elevation.

But giant trees isn't all you'll see on your trip to the Sequoias. Abundant wildlife can be found throughout the park, including deer, bears, squirrels and many other animals native to the area. You'll also find abundant waterfalls, flowing rivers and scenic vistas sure to delight all!
