SeKi has well over a foot of snow!
Thanks to Chris Publiski for sharing this image of the snow covered Mark Twain Stump. The Mark Twain Tree is a giant sequoia that was cut down in 1891 to display in the New York Museum of Natural History and the British Museum of Natural History in London. You can still see the slices today.

The Making of a Modern Day Chief: Charlie Cooke
Please Join Us for a Special Campfire Program July 15 - 8-9 p.m. - Lodgepole Campfire – Sequoia National Park, Lodgepole Campground Amphitheater (near Loop B)

Dr. Mary Louise Contini Gordon, author, will take you on a photographic journey about Chumash Chief Charlie Cooke from her recent book, TIQ SLO’W: The Making of a Modern Day Chief. Charlie Cooke collaborated with national and state parks and their leaders at sites in Chumash territory along the California Coast. The story includes the relentless dedication of this cowboy, truck driver, and war veteran to American Indian sites/culture and national and state parks—in some cases one and the same.

Thanks for the review Anne. We're sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the restaurant. We have recently brought on new managers with a lot of experience running operations in national parks and we expect to see substantial improvements in the coming days. We hope that you'll come again and next time you come you'll be pleased with what you see (or perhaps I should say taste!)

This lodge is a perfect place to spend a couple nights up in the mountains. My wife and I booked a two night stay at the lodge following our wedding in Vegas and could not have been more pleased. The food was amazing and the restaurant provided boxed lunches for traveling around sequoia the next day. Our waiter Matt, was very helpful in mapping out places to visit around the park and helped make our little honeymoon a very romantic and memorable one. Our room was extremely nice, clean, and cozy. I really have nothing but praises for this lodge!

Thank you for the review and, above all, congratulations (belatedly) on your wedding. That's quite a contrast to go from Las Vegas to Sequoia! Thanks for staying with us.

We stayed here for one night on the weekend in mid December. The Superior room was large and clean. If you bring children, definitely book this room. The atmosphere was spectacular! The short walk to the main lodge for dinner was great! We had an amazing dinner and the service was excellent (except the bar tender was quite slow). There was few feet of snow in the surrounding area but the walkways were shoveled and clear. I recommend you bring a good flashlight if you plan on walking out of your room after dark, the hotel does provide one but it isn't that great. Overall, I highly recommend this Lodge to stay!

Reservations were made through a third party, and when we called to change the reservation (weather conditions were not the best for driving) they went ahead and changed it which was great! Unfortunately, a week prior to our stay we had to change the reservation due to our work schedules, the representative at the hotel said that the person who changed the reservation the first time wasn't authorized to do so and that we can't change our reservation AT ALL =( Then they told me to call the third party in which I had booked it with, then THEY said I had to speak with the hotel to settle it. I made that call and had to leave a message with the front desk, I NEVER got a phone call back from them, and when I called back every person I spoke with said it was too late. I was REALLY disappointed with how our reservation was handled.

This is a beautiful lodge close to General Sherman. We only ate breakfast at the lodge but it was wonderful. The room was clean and cozy, and the staff was informative about the park. I highly recommend this lodge!

I'm writing this primarily to tie-up a many-month feedback lapse: One of the lodge employees, with a name-tag denoting Josil, very kindly provided my wife and I a set of lengthy explanations to a long list of inquiries. A lot of detail garnered from her personal experiences helped us significantly. This was while we were staying at the lodge where where she worked as a receptionist, not the restaurant-portion. However, in coming here I've seen a perplexing mix of restaurant reviews. There must be some variability in chefs! To provide our tip on that balance - the restaurant was fantastic. The portions were large - much larger than expected! Very pleasing when you've been traipsing about the Sequoias all day. (Also worth noting - they provided gluten-free options, a must for my wife.) The workload on the wait-staff was quite high, but provided great service despite this. Equally important, the ambiance of the place was lovely and perfectly suited the external environs/views thereof. A high-ceiling open space, stone slab and timber construction, centered on a large, radiant fireplace.

Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Dear Ian, Thank you for the feedback even after a many-month lapse. We have had some issues with out Google Plus accounts and we're trying to catch up a bit ourselves. First off, thanks for your comments about Josil. We'll make sure this feedback makes it back to her. We did indeed have some staffing turnover and that has made service at the restaurant challenging during the busiest times. In the short term, we have added staff as quickly as we can. In the long term, we are working with the National Park Service to explore adding additional employee housing. That is a significant investment and faces many regulatory challenges, so that will take some time, of course. We are already making significant investments in the Grant Grove area (building a new check-in area and next year a completely new restaurant building) and are looking into what we need to do in the Wuksachi area to handle the growing number of guests. Apologies that it took so long to reply, but we do very much appreciate your comments!

We just ate dinner at the lodge restaurant. I didn't have a reservation, but the hostess told us we could be sat in about 15 minutes. After waiting for a about thirty minutes, despite being about 5 feet away in direct view of the hostess stand, the hostess acted like she had never seen us before. The dining room was almost empty at this time. The food arrived quickly and was adequate, but the entree portions were miniscule. I've had much better for much less.
Response from the owner - 11 months ago
Please accept our sincere apologies for your disappointment with the hostess and your meal.I will certainly address your experience with the department managers and team. Our goal is that all of our guests receive an exceptional product and service and we are sorry this was not delivered in your visit.
