HONEY BEES – Help us protect the bees living behind the office at Sequoia Resort. The bees like their privacy, so we ask that you do not go behind the office building into their area. Frequently-Asked Questions 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. Can I tent camp at the Sequoia Resort and RV Park? - No tent or car camping is allowed at our resort. Only full hook-up RVs are allowed. How do I get to Sequoia Resort and RV Park? - Arriving from the south (SoCal): --Take Hwy 198E from Visalia. --Then take Hwy 245 north through the town of Woodlake. --Hwy 245 is our road so turn off your GPS or it will take you on the small 1.5-lane road. Guests who suffer car sickness should consider non-drowsy Dramamine for the curvy roads. - Arriving from the north (Fresno area): --Take Hwy 180E and then turn south onto Hwy 245. --This is the best road for RVs to avoid the jack-knife turn! What time do I need to check-in and check out of Sequoia Resort & RV Park? - Check-in time – 3 pm - Check out time – by 11 am Late check-out may be arranged in advance for an extra charge. 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 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 fire pit 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. - If you are in need of a Walmart, Costco, Lowe's (or other major shopping stores) the town of Visalia is a good option, or Fresno if you are traveling from the north.

Turn right out of our driveway onto Highway 245, and then left onto Dunlap Road.
