RV. In Sequoia/ Kings Canyon

Has any one stayed in Azalea or Sunset campgrounds in sequoia? I'm "camping" in a 36 foot class A. I have reservations for a site listed at 40 feet reserved in Lodgepole campground bit would like to go a couple days early and spend some time in the area near Azalea and Sunset campgrounds. Problem is they are both first come first serve Are there sits there for larger rigs?

Haven't camped there, but I was at these parks recently. There is a size restriction for RV's on the main road through the park. It is at 21 feet (or about there). If you come in from the Fresno side you should be fine. Coming in from the south end, from Visalia there are a lot of 10 mhp hairpin turns. They are beautiful parks. Hope you have great time.

We just finished five days in Sequoia and Kings Canyon in our 31ft coach. We drove through Azalea and Sunset and found the sites not much different than the typical CCC days camps. Good for tenting and small trailers. Not good for long wheelbase vehicles. We found Crystal Springs campground just across the highway to be relatively modern with a number of good sites for larger coaches.

Treasure your reservations at Lodgepole.

If you go out to the end of Kings Canyon, stay at the Moraine campground. There some decent sites up near the entry area at the end of loop two.

Think twice if Hume Lake is of interest. The road is narrow and winding with disintegrating or zero shoulders on scary dropoffs.

Do not even think of going out of the park on highway 198 south.

If you have a toad, use it there for day trips. You can see everything without a white Knuckle experience.

We have stayed at Moraine campground at the bottom of Kings Canyon several times. Takes awhile to get down the hill but love the campgrounds. Bring lots of leveling blocks.
