This campground is the first to open and last to close down in Kings Canyon. Sentinel Campground in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park is located on Highway 180 1/4 mile from Cedar Grove Village. The campground is situated in the canyon along the Middle Fork of the Kings River under open stands of evergreen trees. The campground is adjacent to the highway and sites 60-82 are the closest to the road (ie these are the noisiest). Paved roads with paved parking pads meander through the campground. There is no official length limit for RVs but you would be hard pressed to fit larger units into this campground (note they can more easily fit in the aforementioned sites near the roadway). Restrooms with running water and water spigots are available. Many of the sites are smartly placed in a pretty setting; not much privacy between sites the campground fills later in the day during busy periods.
Open seasonally May thru October there are 82 sites available on a first come first served basis only. Located at 4,000 feet (1200 m) and a hour drive from Grant Grove, Cedar Grove is a quieter area of Kings Canyon National Park. Campgrounds in this area are on the South Fork of the Kings River and offer views of the glaciated Kings Canyon. Trails here lead to meadows and waterfalls, and also provide some of the best access to the high Sierra wilderness. All campgrounds in this area contain a bicycle trail which connects them to services at Cedar Grove Village.
The Cedar Grove Area is known as the Kings Canyon region of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park; also referred to as Roads End. The drive to this area from Grants Grove is a long winding and steep road. The bulk of the drive passes through the recent burn area as campers descend down in to the canyon. A pay phone, restaurant, showers, and laundry facilities are available in the Cedar Grove Village a short distance from the campground.
