Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Shutdowns

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks reports

The Generals Highway is closed at Hospital Rock in Sequoia National Park. This closure extends through Giant Forest and Lodgepole, through to Lost Grove. The closure includes concession facilities at these locations including Wuksachi Lodge and other concession and partner operations.

Other areas within the Grant Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park are also closed. It includes the road to the General Grant Tree, Big Stump Picnic Area, and Azalea Campground. The Grant Village will remain open, as will Highway 180 for through traffic to Princess Campground and Montecito Sequoia Lodge.

It is likely these closures will remain in effect for the duration of the government shutdown.

We appreciate all the support from our local communities and park partners. We encourage visitors in the area to explore the excellent food, shops, and recreational opportunities available in the area.
