CA: Season opening for Lodgepole Campground will be delayed

Listen to this story

PORTERVILLE, Calif. — Due to the heavy snow pack and an abundance of hazard trees, the Lodgepole Campground will not open next week as scheduled. This very popular campground will remain closed until May 22. This campground closure includes reservations, walk ups and the self-registration system that usually begins in April.

During the drought years, the Park began opening the campgrounds earlier and earlier in the spring. This year, due to snowpack, the park must return to its regular later opening dates. Recent snow surveys show that Sequoia and Kings Canyon is 153 percent of normal. There are areas that still have 6-10 feet of snow in early April.
