We have camped in Cedar Grove 10-15 times. We have never seen water levels, rapids and waterfalls as we saw in June of 2017.

An amazing park. The drive is awesome. Camping was much quieter than at Sequoia, and with a lot more privacy.

Kings Canyon is a dramatic and stunning landscape! It is not as 'pretty' as Yosemite, but it is still breathtaking and the route alongside the river it awesome. Worth tagging on to Sequoia while you are in the area.

If you don't have time to go to both park, then do Sequoia. It has more interesting and picturesque things to view - Giant forests etc

I would recommend Kings Canyon to anyone that is going to Sequoia Nat'l Park because it has amazing views as well as having close to no one there with limited traffic.

In many ways just as amazing as Sequoia. If you are in the area, take the time to visit. If it were not in the shadow of the more famous park next door, it would be world-famous.

We are travelling from Las Vegas mid April for 5 days to go hiking? Is this going to be ok weather to do this in? We have already seen Zion and The Grand Canyon, but are looking for somewhere with 5 hour max hikes with water, views and a bit of shade!

This is a great time in Kings Canyon. Expect some rain and even snow in the higher elevations. Check out: nps.gov for the latest weather alerts.
