John Muir Lodge Lobby

The pinnacle of Kings Canyon lodging, the John Muir Lodge is a stone-and-timber retreat located in Grant Grove Village and within minutes of historic Grant Grove and its towering forest of giant sequoias.

Open year-round, the John Muir Lodge serves California national park visitors with 34 rooms in Kings Canyon National Park. It is named for the famed Scottish author/naturalist who sought to preserve this High Sierra realm and advocated the designation of Sequoia & King Canyon as national parks. A painting of Muir, gazing out on the wilderness that stirred him, adorns the lobby of the property, and continues to inspire modern-day Muirs.

Built in 1998, the John Muir Lodge is an excellent Kings Canyon lodging choice for visitors who want quiet, comfortable, national park accommodations. It features rough-hewn, open beam ceilings, stone fireplace, and a redwood mantel salvaged from a historic cabin in Sequoia National Park. Lodge guests can enjoy games, puzzles, and books in the lobby great room while relaxing by the stone fireplace. Public balconies at the west end of the lodge provide the perfect place to savor the Sierra sunset with friends and family.

Free Wi-Fi is also available in all public spaces. The Lodge’s guest rooms are set with hand crafted wood furniture in a bright and natural light-filled atmosphere. Come evening there is often a glowing fire burning in the fireplace, with guests relaxing in corners of the great room, sharing their day’s adventures. Several porches with chairs and rockers also offer comfortable opportunities for discourse in the fresh mountain air. The family-friendly Grant Grove Restaurant next to the John Muir Lodge features American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with an espresso bar on the patio.
