Giant Forest accessible from both Park entrances

The entire length of the Generals Highway is now open. Visitors can now reach Grant Grove and Giant Forest via either the Highway 180 entrance, or the Highway 198 entrance.

Expect delays as construction crews continue to work to fully repair the roads. On Generals Highway between Three Rivers (Hwy 198) and Giant Forest there are two traffic lights and some areas that are less than two lanes wide, signed with yield signs. Travel slow and drive defensively.

Due to severe road damage along the Highway 180 corridor between Grant Grove and Cedar Grove, Caltrans does not expect repairs to be completed before the end of the summer season. This means public access is not expected into the Cedar Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park for the 2023 summer season.

For detailed information about what areas of the park are open vs closed, please visit the National Park Service website. For current road conditions, call 559-565-3341, press 1, then 1 again.

Service Updates

As our services evolve throughout the seasons, we aim to provide you with the latest and most current information to keep you well-informed about our property and surrounding areas.

At Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, we are focused on creating an experience that delights every guest.

Please reference the important information below for our guests:

  • Full payment for the reservation will be taken at check-in.
  • What to expect in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks:
    • Purchase Entrance Pass in Advance - Expect long lines at Park entrance stations between 10 AM - 3 PM. The best times to visit are early in the morning or later in the afternoon. We recommend purchasing your entrance pass in advance on to reduce your time at the entrance booth.
    • Traffic Delays - Although the Generals Highway is open, there are several areas where storm damaged roads are still under repair and require one-lane traffic control. Visitors should drive cautiously and expect delays.
    • River Safety - Rivers are extremely dangerous this year as a record snowpack continues to melt at higher elevations. We urge visitors to keep a safe distance from the water's edge as rocks are slippery and most fatalities have been from people unintentionally falling in. Even on the hottest days, the water from the mountain snow melt is frigid cold.
    • Camping - Camping is limited this year and reservations are required. Please check for availability.
    • Wildlife and Pets - Wildlife is prevalent throughout the parks, and it is extremely important to keep all food and scented items stored properly or disposed of in bear proof trash bins. Feeding wildlife is not allowed and can make them bold and potentially dangerous to visitors. Pets are not permitted on trails. Visitors should take that into consideration before bringing their pet along for the ride. High temperatures are expected this weekend, and car interiors can get dangerously hot for pets needing to be left behind.
    • Area Closures - Both the Cedar Grove area in Kings Canyon National Park and the Mineral King area in Sequoia National Park remain closed due to severe road damage from winter storms.
  • Electric Vehicle Advisory: There are currently no charging stations available in Sequoia and Kings Canyon, so we strongly advise charging your vehicle before heading up the mountain.
