  • We really enjoyed Sequoia / Kings Canyon National Park. Such a wonderful get away and so close. We spent some time at Sequoia Lake YMCA Camp because our friends were directors there from 1971 to 1978. What a beautiful camp.
  • It's a good place to go with the family.. only one thing did not like was that there was a couple of near us and they were smoking marijuana... We had our kids and at least they would move away to an area not surrounded by kids.
