Sequoia Resort and RV Park

What vehicles are allowed at your resort?

Full hook-up RVs only; You would be amazed at the amount of Tesla's who book a 50 amp RV site to "charge" and they want to sleep in the car. This is not allowed.

-Then take Hwy 245 north through the town of Woodlake.

Is there Wi-Fi at Sequoia Resort and RV Park?

We do offer Wi-Fi hotspots in the vacation rentals and one in the library for the RV guests. However, the Wi-Fi is NOT strong because of the mountains. Because of this it isn't recommended you try to work or do remote school from our property.

What are California fire rules right now? Will the drought affect my vacation?

Due to extreme fire danger, no charcoal or fire pits are allowed at RV sites. Propane grills are allowed and we do have a community propane BBQ grill and a firepit near the picnic area for guest use. This may change depending on the wind severity.

Additionally, the pond is currently unavailable for use due to drought conditions. We probably should change the landing page photo as guests still think we have water in the pond which is incorrect.

Where's the closest grocery store?

It is HIGHLY recommended to stock up with groceries/food before making the drive up here for check in.
-There is a small market in Grant Grove inside the park that carries the basic essentials.
-There is a larger grocery store in the town of Woodlake, which is about a 45 minute drive from us.
