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.

  • Actually connected to the Sequoia Park, I am so happy I went there. There are many attractions not to be missed here. The roads are also great drives!

  • One of the best place I visited on the planet. Really it's a must visit place in USA. The views are special, attractive, breath taking, gorgeous, amazing... Will be a trip of life time. The volume, quality, beauty of the nature is wordless here. The roads are safe, lots of stop or turn out options on the road. So can easily clock photos on this route. There are lots of camping ground options too.
  • Gorgeous park to visit. Worth the extra driving time. Don't be deceived, even though it is right next to Sequoia National Park there is extra driving especially in the winter time, when some roads are closed. You can see Sequoias here and even can walk through a hollow tree. Less crowds than Sequoia NP. Bathrooms available throughout and a nice gift shop open on holiday weekends and in the summer. Totally worth going if you get the time.
