Beautiful park with a great drive along and through the canyon. Lots of areas to pull to the side of the road and take in the views.

We were uncertain of what to expect from this park. We were blown away by the views. The views of the meadow, river and canyon were fantastic. The road to drive down to the main area is super curvy and either fun or nerve racking,...More

I hadn't realized this part of the park vastly differed from Sequoia Nat'l Park . Beautiful canyon, very remote from rest of the park. Delightful, swift river even in September and beautiful meadows. Arrive in this little "community" of ranger buildings, campgrounds and the lodge,...More

We visited Kings Canyon in September and the weather was perfect and there were no crowds. The Sequoia Grove is every bit as nice as Sequoia NP (which is also spectacular) and much less less crowded. It is a beautiful Park with lots of trails...More

We only had a day to see the parks and it’s well worth doing by car if you don’t have time for hikes. King’s Canyon is incredible whilst the General’s Highway is a wonderful and varied drive. We stopped at the must sees and had...More

Had planned to hike this trail for a few months however I had to wait for the smoke from the fires to clear. I am so glad I did wait. Mid September is when the backcountry is closing up and there are few people in...More

Do not know about air quality at Kings Canyon. Kings Canyon might be worth a trip but it is not really a substitute for Yosemite when it comes to the views but I understand your fire considerations.

There may be a place right in sequoia near Kings Canyon. There are a few restaurants and hotels. Maybe you can use a hotel ice maker.
