When is the best time to visit and where to stay? My husband and I would like to see the redwoods and thought this park may be less crowded and easier to find lodging in than Yosemite (We will be flying in from Chicago and don't want to camp.). We are thinking late May/early June and staying at Wuksachi Lodge. Does anyone have any experiences with this? Thanks!

First, and I realize you probably know this, but to be clear: Sequoia National Park has Sequoia trees and Redwood National park has redwoods. Sequoia are more fat, redwoods are more tall, both are marvelous and worth a look.

If youíre going to Sequoia, redwoods, or Yosemite youíll want to fly into San Francisco or Oakland (southwest flies into Oakland). I think you can also fly into San Jose but that will be much more expensive.

If youíre doing Sequoia and havenít done Yosemite it is worth the crowd and cost to do Yosemite. Yosemite has an excellent bus service to get crowds around while Sequoia has a mediocre one, but the crowds are less. Thereís a reason Yosemite is one of the first national parks that comes to peopleís minds.

I stayed in the foothills of Sequoia to save money so Iím not familiar with the place you mentioned. However having visited many National Parks and stayed in several I can tell you itís nice to be close but expect basic amenities at most (no fridge, microwave, WiFi etc) and it will cost you.

All California national parks (except pinnacles) are worth the trip! Be prepared for crazy prices for it being California alone. For example, how can California picked strawberries cost more in California than in the Midwest Iíll never understand.

Let me know if you want more info. I wish I could be a national parks travel advisor in the summer!
