Just one hour’s spectacular drive from Grant Grove, Cedar Grove sits in the glacial Kings Canyon at 4000 feet in elevation. Open from early spring to late fall, it tends to be a peaceful area of Kings Canyon National Park, especially before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. In 2018, Highway 180 to Cedar Grove will close at noon on November 13. Four campgrounds along the Kings River offer views of the deep, granite-walled canyon. Trails here lead to meadows and waterfalls, and also provide some of the best access to the high Sierra wilderness. A bicycle trail connects all four campgrounds to services at Cedar Grove Village.
All campgrounds in Cedar Grove have flush toilets and are close to a snack bar, market, showers, and laundry. We encourage everyone to conserve water, especially in this area.
Reservations are available for Sentinel Campground and for Canyon View Campground's group sites. The other campgrounds here are are first-come, first-served.
