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.
Wireless internet is available in all common areas of the lodge. Please be aware that because of our remote location, internet service is limited.

The Lodge's guest rooms are set with handcrafted 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 a seasonal espresso bar on the patio.
Open year-round, the John Muir Lodge serves California national park visitors with 36 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 & Kings 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.
John Muir Lodge is dog-friendly. The pet fee is $25 per pet, per night. Please review the Pet Policy if you will be traveling with your pet(s).

"Great location, great staff, and good sized room. Due to current conditions, there wasn't an opportunity for a lot of extra amenities. The lodge and the park service are definitely doing their best to make it a memorable visit."
"Great stay and great service. The gentlemen in the front desk was very attentive. The location of the lodge is perfect. We will most definitely be back."
