Discover the Pristine Camping Experience in Sequoia National Park

To some people camping is a non-sense activity that cost a lot of time and money but for others it is a brilliant travel experience. I and my kids adore the wonderful experience from sleeping in a lumpy and sandy tents, my wife don’t. But she does love the calmness, backdrop and modest pleasures that the nature brings.

I can just say that Australia’s outback is hard to beat, especially their wilderness frontier for an impeccable camping experience. But I can also say that camping in Sequoia national park is an unbeatable experience too. In here you can see the vastness of trees that grows thousand years ago and survived the harsh weather of the high altitude of the snowy mountain range of Sierra Nevada.

Campgrounds in the park include three in the foothills area, Potwisha, Buckeye Flat, and South Fork. Four campgrounds are at higher, conifer-subjugated elevations, stretching from 6,650 to 7,500 feet.

The park is home to over 240 known caves, and potentially hundreds more. The caves in the park include California’s longest cave at over 20 miles. Caves in Sequoia National Park are valued by researchers and cavers alike for their unspoiled exquisiteness, diversity, and pervasive cave life. Almost every year, caves are discovered in the area; seventeen have been discovered since 2003 alone. In September 2006, the newly discovered major cave in the park, has been named Ursa Minor.

Truly, the parks preserve a landscape that still look like the southern Sierra Nevada before European American settlement. Sequoia National Park accommodation is truly an unforgettable experience.
