According to National Geographic, a backpacker in Sequoia National Park can hike to a spot that is farther from roads than any other place in the contiguous 48 states. And, like Kings Canyon National Park to the north, only a small part of Sequoia is accessible by car and RV. But neither fact prevents easy access to magnificent examples of the trees for which the park is named. Sequoia National Park and portions of the Sequoia and Inyo National Forests occupy almost the entire area described in this section. Although the national park is justifiably world famous for its stunning stands of giant sequoia, more than 30 groves of these unique trees can be found as well in Sequoia National Forest and Mountain Home State Demonstration Forest. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Dorst, Lodgepole, Buckeye Flat, Potwisha, Atwel Mill, Cold Springs, and South Fork.
