Nestled on a steep wooded hillside overlooking Kings Canyon, the Sequoia High Sierra Camp is the last luxury outpost before you enter two million acres of High Sierra wilderness, which extends from Sequoia to Yosemite.
An oasis in the wilderness, the Camp consists of 30 spacious tented cabins, an alfresco Dining Pavilion with fireplace, and a central bath house with modern flush toilets and hot showers. Three daily meals are included in the overnight rates -- a full mountain breakfast buffet, a pack-your-own picnic lunch and a casually elegant dinner.
The Camp is accessed by a short stroll from the parking area. The Sequoia High Sierra Camp is a peaceful vacation venue with a staff dedicated to the comfort and relaxation of their guests. The Camp's daily routines are governed by long, sunny days and cool brisk nights. There are spots for peaceful reading, as well as miles of hiking trails and meadows to be explored. There is fly-fishing in the streams of Rowell Meadow and Boulder Creek an a little farther afield, the glacial lakes of the Kings - Kaweah Divide.
Canvas Tent Cabins
Sequoia High Sierra Camp offers 32 deluxe canvas tented cabins that are comfortable, yet reflective of the great wilderness setting, essentially a tent-en-suite. They measure approximately 330 square feet (14' x 24'), on a fixed platform, canvas side walls and roof, doors, and shuttered windows.
The bungalows are sited throughout the hillside of a red fir and lodgepole pine forest. The location provides wonderful views of Kings Canyon and privacy for each bungalow.
Upscale amenities provided include:
Artisan furniture and traditional forest color schemes
Inside casual seating area with chairs and coffee table
Bedside tables and reading lanterns
King size or twin beds
Down feather pillows
High thread-count sheets
Wool blankets and area rugs
Comfort and tranquility are central to accommodations at Sequoia High Sierra Camp, from plush-top beds with feather pillows and Pendleton wool blankets, to indoor seating areas and shuttered oversized windows from which to enjoy the surrounding forest views. Daily maid service, premium linens, towels, and toiletries are included.
The spacious canvas bungalows, each about 330 square feet, feature twin beds or a king (based on availability), comfortable chairs, tables, and plenty of hooks for hanging clothes and packs. These cabins are ideal for two guests, however they can accommodate up to a total of four guests.
If you have a special request, (such as close proximity to the bath house or another guest tent), please let us know at the time you make your reservation. While it is not guaranteed, we will do our best to honor requests for specified locations and bed configurations.
Guests of the Sequoia High Sierra Camp will enjoy weather conditions that are typical of the alpine backcountry. Chilly mornings giving way to long, warm days and spectacular evening sunsets leading to cool, crisp temperatures overnight. The mild temperature is very dry, rarely climbs above 75 degrees. Bugs are almost nonexistent. Nights can be quite chilly and get as low as 40-50 degrees. Dining is an open air pavilion so we do recommend bringing warm clothes.
Frequently during the summer months, there are swift moving thundershowers that enter our region. If rain is predicted during your stay, you will want to bring a second pair of hiking shoes (in case your shoes become damp during the hike into camp).

Three daily meals are included with each one-night stay at the Camp, and all go far beyond traditional campfire fare. Incorporating sustainable, local ingredients, the Camp's healthy cuisine is served al-fresco in the dining pavilion.
Each night our chef prepares a 5 course, set menu, featuring either fresh seafood of lean meats. The Camp will also try to accommodate vegetarians and those with special dietary needs, given advanced notice by email.
Do you enjoy fine craft beer and imported wines? We proudly feature an impressive selection of beverages as well as a wine list compiled by professional wine retailer Kermit Lynch (named Wine Professional of the Year by the James Beard Foundation in 2000). This attractively priced beverage list includes domestic and imported beer, as well as numerous wine varietals by the glass and bottle. Please note there is a corkage fee of $20 per bottle if you choose to bring your own wine. Salud!
A breakfast buffet is served each morning, with selections ranging from fresh fruits, cereals, and vegetable frittatas to more hearty fare of bacon, eggs and potatoes. Muffins and granola are made fresh in our own kitchen.
For lunch, guests are invited to "pack their own picnic" from a wide assortment of deli sandwich imported meats and cheeses, high protein snacks and take-along beverages.
Dinner is a convivial event, where guests enjoy each other's company and stunning sunset views while dining alfresco under the canvas roofed pavilion. Gourmet California cuisine style entrees showcase subtle Mediterranean-style flavor accents. Indulgent desserts are a highlight of each meal, and are made from scratch.
A vegetarian/vegan option is available for all meals and our chef is able to honor most dietary restrictions. Take moment to view a sample dinner menu and a sample wine list.
