Kings Canyon National Park: Sentinel Campground Sentinel is one of four campgrounds in the Cedar Grove area of the park. Actually, any of the four would be on our favorites list because we consider Cedar Grove such a great place to camp, but Sentinel is closest to Cedar Grove Lodge with a small market and dining area. The campground sits along the Middle Fork of the Kings River that can really roar in the spring and early summer.
Thousand Island Lake is a large alpine lake in the Sierra Nevada, within the Ansel Adams Wilderness in eastern Madera County, California. The lake is named for the many small rocky islands that dot its surface.
It’s important to be prepared for any scenario when gearing up for a weekend in the High Sierras. Impromptu rain storms, snow during the summer seasons, and fluctuating temperatures make this terrain treacherous and unpredictable. But don’t let that scare you away- as long as you prepare, you will be able to enjoy your trip worry-free.
