Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Reopens

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks  announcement

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks announced today that the recently closed parks will once again be accessible to visitors starting January 11, 2019. Some visitor services, including campgrounds and entrance stations, will reopen using revenue generated by recreation fees.

All areas that are typically open this time of year, including campgrounds, restrooms, trails, and roads, are open, except visitor centers. These areas will remain open unless winter conditions or other factors require otherwise.

These areas include Giant Forest, General Sherman Tree, Grant Grove, General Grant Tree, Foothills, Hospital Rock, Potwisha and Azalea Campgrounds, and Big Stump and Wolverton snow play areas.

While basic visitor services have been restored, other services may be limited or unavailable during the lapse in appropriations, including visitor centers, ranger talks and programs.

Visitors are advised to call 559-565-3341 for current road conditions, closures, and weather before visiting. Tire chains may be required at any time, and winter conditions are expected in the coming days.
