Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park Updates

Good news, campers! Potwisha Campground, located in the foothills of Sequoia National Park, will reopen tomorrow, 11/18, for first-come, first-served camping.
Please pay for only one night at a time, as the campground may close at any time due to weather, road conditions, or other causes, and refunds cannot be issued.
The Generals Highway remains closed above Hospital Rock, six miles from the entrance station.
It is not possible to see giant sequoias via the Sequoia National Park entrance (through the town of Three Rivers). There is currently no access to the General Sherman Tree. To see giant sequoias, including the General Grant Tree, visit Grant Grove through the Kings Canyon National Park entrance on Highway 180. As of yesterday, Cedar Grove is closed for the winter.

The KNP Complex is currently 75% contained, with most of the uncontained perimeter located in wilderness areas and exhibiting minimal activity. Even in areas of the parks where the road is open, many trails and areas remain closed due to hazards from the fire. Please be mindful of signage and instructions from NPS employees.
