Visitor Experience and Access Planning

We're currently accepting public comments on an effort to develop a Visitor Experience and Access Plan for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The information gathered through this planning process will inform decision-making and priority-setting for public investments over the next decade.

Public comments can be submitted through February 15.

An in-person public meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, at the Three Rivers Memorial Building.

If you missed the first public meeting, slides from the first public meeting are available, along with a recording of the first presentation (below).

Planning & Compliance

The National Park Service (NPS) is required by federal law to engage in transparent planning efforts and to solicit public input, agency input, and tribal input in decision making. The NPS engages in planning to ensure our decisions are as effective and efficient as possible in carrying out the NPS mission to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the NPS for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.

The National Environmental Policy Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, the Wilderness Act, and other laws and regulations and NPS policies require that certain procedural steps be taken, and that the parks analyze all plans and project proposals to determine the degree of impacts on the environment. The involvement and input of the interested and affected public is an essential component in this process.

This site is dedicated to providing the public with information on planning activities and projects within Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.The links above provide the public with more information on approved and ongoing planning activities and projects within Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and more information on how to get involved.
