Sequoia National Forest

Sequoia National Forest (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Sequoia National Forest, CA - Labor Day weekend has historically been one of the busiest weekends of the year in the Giant Sequoia National Monument and Sequoia National Forest. The most important thing for visitors to know about this year is that campfires are not allowed anywhere in the Forest.

Continued high temperatures and low moisture mean fire restrictions are still in effect prohibiting campfires. Stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves that use gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel are allowed only in authorized campsites if the operator possesses a valid California Campfire Permit. Free campfire permits and a list of these authorized locations are available online at or at any Forest Service office.

Visitors, especially those who plan to stay overnight, should come prepared for inclement weather; an unexpected storm is not uncommon late in the summer. Storms can bring gusts of cold temperatures, lightning, and sporadic showers that could dampen a visitor’s weekend. Please come prepared with warm blankets, extra food and water, and let someone know of your travel plans.

In order to ensure a camping spot, advanced reservations are recommended by calling 1-877-444-6777 or on the World Wide Web at Dispersed camping is available most anywhere in the National Forest. Remember to “Pack it in, pack it out” meaning that if you bring it with you, you need to be prepared to take it home.

For more site specific information please call the following Forest offices…
· Hume Lake Ranger District, Dunlap (559) 338-2251
· Western Divide Ranger District, Springville (559) 539-2607
· Kern River Ranger District, Kernville (760) 376-3781
