47050 Generals Highway
Three Rivers, CA 03271-9700


These twin parks hold monuments to nature's size, beauty, and diversity: Immense mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns ... and the world’s largest trees! The parks lie in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of the San Joaquin Valley. Activities vary greatly by season and by elevation.


The parks are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, weather permitting. Highest visitation is in July & August. It can be difficult to find a campsite at popular campgrounds on summer Saturdays. Because of the extreme elevation range in the parks, conditions vary greatly from area to area and day to day. See the links above for more information on the season that corresponds to the time when you will visit the parks.

Basic Directions

Both roads leading to these parks approach from the west. They are open all day, every day, depending on weather. No roads cross these parks. From the east, no roads reach the park boundary.
