Know Before You Go
Temperatures in Cedar Grove can range from 100 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit during the peak season. The 30 mile drive from Grant Grove takes approximately one hour’s driving time due to winding roads and numerous switch backs. This is American Black Bear habitat: all food, scented items, and garbage must be properly stored in provided bear-resistant food storage boxes, not in your vehicle, 24 hours/day. Food-storage box dimensions are 28" high x 33" deep x 47" wide. Please don't travel with firewood; get it at or near your camping destination. Help protect these parks from invasive species, such as insects, fungi and other pests living in firewood that can spread beyond campgrounds threatening the health of the forest. Local markets sell firewood and gathering dead and down wood is allowed. A California state fishing license is required for fishing. Cell phone service is unreliable throughout the parks.

Natural Features:

The group sites are located in a cedar and ponderosa pine forest at the bottom of the third deepest canyon in the contiguous United States. The Cedar Grove area’s glaciated valley features towering cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, and the powerful Kings River, whose canyon gave the park its name. Two prominent rock formations, North Dome at 8,717 feet and Grand Sentinel at 8,518 feet, rise 3,500 feet above the canyon floor. Many species of wildlife inhabit the canyon as well.

Recreation:

Cedar Grove provides some of the best trails in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, especially near Roads End. Nearby the Kings River offers excellent trout fishing. Horseback riding is also available. Expect warm days and cool nights in the area.
