Grant Grove Visitor Center
Grant Grove Visitor Center is the perfect place to stop for information on your Kings Canyon adventure. Pick up a book, map, or souvenir, and talk to one of the "locals" for first-hand information on good places to check out!
Grant Grove Visitor Center at Kings Canyon is located in the heart of Grant Grove Village and features exhibits and a short film about the history of Kings Canyon National Park. Books, maps, postcards, wilderness permits, and souvenirs, as well as information about the Junior Ranger Program, are available.
The Visitor Center’s exhibits on the canyon, sequoias, and human history of the park are well worth a look. First aid is also available at the ranger station. The Grant Grove Visitor Center is located on Highway 180 in Kings Canyon at an elevation of 6,589 feet. Open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.
