A popular attraction and for good reason. To see these giant trees up close is truly breathtaking. The trails are paved and easy for walking. This is definitely a bucket list item.

We parked our car at the museum and then walked the Huckleberry trail. This circular trail starts just under 1 mile from the museum and you will leave the crowds behind. The trail leads along families of sequoias and past beautiful meadows. Stunning!

Sorry, we stayed at Wuksachi Lodge, but there seemed to be plenty of camping around. I would think calling the ranger station might be able to help you.
