Witness the immense natural wonder of the Kings Canyon National Park's namesake, . Camp and hike this mountainous region, situated in southern Sierra Nevadas and formed by the South Fork of the Kings Rivers. This canyon, part of the larger South Fork canyon, is 2,500 m (8,200 ft) deep and was shaped out of granite by glaciers. View the cliffs, river, and meadows in the amazing glacial valley and see why the park was named for this particular site. You can also visit the mysterious Boyden Cave, one of the many caves encompassed by this canyon.

  • We really enjoyed Sequoia / Kings Canyon National Park. Such a wonderful get away and so close. We spent some time at Sequoia Lake YMCA Camp because our friends were directors there from 1971 to 1978. What a beautiful camp.
  • It's a good place to go with the family.. only one thing did not like was that there was a couple of near us and they were smoking marijuana... We had our kids and at least they would move away to an area not surrounded by kids.
