Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Operating Hours & Seasons

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks are open throughout the year, 24 hours every day for a whole 365 days (or even 366), just so long as the weather permits it. The parks are usually busiest during the months of July and August when campsites fill us, especially on the weekends and holidays.

These parks have a pretty extreme elevation range which means that the weather can be different from day to day and area to area. Here’s a basic guide of what to expect on your visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in the various seasons throughout the year.

Springtime in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Springtime is between April and June time, and there’s often still snow around in the Sequoia groves. The rivers and creeks run quickly during these months and are particularly dangerous and cold. One real bonus of visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks in the spring time is the abundance of beautiful wild flowers which carpet the foothills.

Summertime in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Summertime is really from July until the middle of September. By July the snow on the High Sierra passes has usually melted and the majority of the park facilities and programs are in operation including the Crystal Cave tours. The park foothills are dry and very hot in the summertime, making a dip in the rivers a tempting prospect, but be careful, they are very dangerous. The temperatures in the Sequoia Groves are usually much more comfortable.

Fall in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

From mid September until November, night time can get mighty chilly in the Sequoia groves and you can expect light snowfalls any time from late October. Many of the parks facilities will either have reduced hours or close altogether and there are less ranger programs. The foothills also cool down considerably, and my November the rains will probably have started. The Crystal Cave tours finish for the season in October.

Winter in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

Wintertime is from approximately November until April. During the wintertime you’ll find the Sequoia groves peaceful, cold and snowy. The foothills are green and cool, and the wildflowers can start to blossom as early as January. The sound of the peace is quite deafening.
