Located at 4,000 feet an hour’s drive from Grant Grove, Cedar Grove is a quieter area of Kings Canyon National Park. It is open from early spring to late fall. Four campgrounds in this area along the Kings River offer views of the granite-walled Kings 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 snack bar, laundry, and shower facilities. Because of an ongoing drought, we encourage campers to conserve water when camping in this area.
