Grant Grove Village
Legendary Trees, Visitor Center Services
Grant Grove makes up the western portion of Kings Canyon National Park and is home to the General Grant Tree, a.k.a. "the Nation's Christmas Tree".
Situated just inside the Kings Canyon’s Big Stump entrance on Highway 180, Grant Grove Village offers a range of amenities and services to enhance your national park experience.
Start at the Kings Canyon Visitor Center in Grant Grove Village to plan your visit and learn more about the High Sierras and the giant sequoias the area is famous for. You’ll also find books, maps, and gifts available for purchase in the visitor center shop.
If you’re looking for lodging in Grant Grove Village, stay in a quiet, cozy room at the John Muir Lodge, or book one of the secluded Grant Grove Cabins for a more rustic experience. Whatever you choose, both types of accommodation offer easy access to the nearly 900,000 acres that make up Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. After a day of exploring the southern Sierra Nevada, the Grant Grove Village Restaurant is a great place to relax and refuel, with seasonal American cuisine in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere.
Additionally, Grant Grove Village serves as the ideal park base camp, where you’ll find services like ATMs and a post office. If you need supplies, stop by the Grant Grove Market for groceries, beer and wine, and camping basics – you’ll even find cross-country skis and snowshoes for rent during the snowy winter month. And for Sequoia & Kings Canyon souvenirs, the Grant Grove Gift Shop has a selection of clothes, Native American arts and crafts, and other local treasures to commemorate your visit.
And, just down the highway, there’s Grant Grove and third-largest tree on earth, the stately General Grant.
