Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

In the national parks, there are outlet-style charging stations for electric vehicles at Wuksachi Lodge and at Grant Grove Market. They are standard wall outlets and are not suitable for all electric vehicles.

There are also charging stations in the town of Three Rivers just outside the Sequoia park entrance. Charging stations are also available in the cities of Visalia and Fresno. The State of California offers an online list with links to charging station locators that will help you find an appropriate station for your vehicle.
