The drive into the canyon is spectacular. Once you reach the bottom you follow branches of several rivers including the King River. The cliffs of the canyon, waterfalls and meadows are beautiful. There are campgrounds and picnic areas in the canyon as well as hiking...More

I don't know the technical distinction between a valley and a canyon, but this doesn't feel canyon-like to me (as in the Grand Canyon). It's more like a river trail/road through a valley with very high mountains on both sides. Pretty.

Visited Kings Canyon at the same time as we visited Sequoia National Park. A lot of great views when at the canyon. A lot of woodlands and forest.

The hiking is cool, the staff at visitors center were helpful. The trees and views are awesome. Not the most well known park but awesome.

My husband and I drove to King's Canyon one morning and then on to the meadow. It's a beautiful part of the park and much quieter than the other parts.

Beautiful drive from Grants Grove to Kings River. Different landscapes and views of the park than up the top. Meadows and waterfalls. We drove down to Cedar Grove at the end of the road. We hesitated at first. But I am so glad that we...More

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.
