Our rig is 42 feet, and it just fit in the site (we had to unhook and park our tow vehicle elsewhere. Sites were clean and wide, mostly level, and there is easy access from the highway. Those families with children should be aware that they consider any child 12 and over as an adult, and we were charged an extra $5.40 cents for our 12-year-old per night. Also be aware that you must use special cards for the laundry. We arrived around 7:30 and went to wash clothes at 8 pm, only to discover that we had to have this special card (which you can get with a $10 deposit) to use the machines. Since the card can only be purchased from the campground store/office, you are out of luck if you don't figure that out before they close for the night at 8 pm. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The positives: level gravel sites, good hookups, 1 hour WiFi free per day, picnic table at each site, nice staff, and convenient to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (45 minutes to Sequoia gate and 60 minutes to Kings Canyon gate). The negatives: for the "KOA discount" price of $48 per night, the WiFi should be free and the pads should be paved. The unpaved pads lead to dusty conditions. As with most KOAs, this one was overpriced for the amenities. We would stay here for a few days, again, if we wanted to visit the local national parks, however. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet park with level pull thru sites, utilities were good- the exception being the wifi. An hour per device and once logged on, the hour starts and that is it. They are working hard to keep the grass green during this long drought period. Trees offered shade, but you need to pay attention to where your dish needs to point for sat service. The park was very quiet at night. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks were wonderful-the drought has made the rivers and falls disappear, but don't miss! Dinner at Rosa's in Visalia was very good! Some of the best italian we have had in a while.

The owners of this pretty park go out of their way to make your stay a nice one. Each site is cleaned and raked after each visit. The park is well maintained and spotlessly clean. Good cable. We always stay here when in the area. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an acceptable, average overnight stop, but I wouldn't want to stay here long term. The park has limited facilities, narrow gravel streets, and short gravel sites that barely accommodated my 40 ft MH. I had to disconnect the towed vehicle because it stuck out into the road. When I called ahead with the specs of my MH and toad, the person assured me the site was adequate. In short, this park is typical of 1970s or 1980s construction. It is also over priced when compared to other, newer resort style parks, some of which charge less. I saw several trailers and fifth wheels that appear to be full time residents. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Quiet campground with friendly staff and owners. All services worked well including cable. They have Wi-Fi at an extra cost, but offer first half-hour free. Signal was very strong during that half-hour which was all that we used. Site was level and campground appears well maintained. Would stay again if ever in this area.

Easy to get to from Hwy 99 & Hwy 198. The sites are not too long but plenty of room on the sides for a table and sitting outside and relaxing. Very clean and well taken care of. Shade trees on most of the sites. Our site #50 was level, with W/S/50AMP/Cable & WI-FI. All in good working order. Some shopping and a mall in Visalia. It's about an hour drive to Sequoia National Park, but it's an easy drive on Hwy 198 and as you get closer to the N.P entrance, it becomes rather scenic. There are a couple of campgrounds closer to the N.P. entrance, but don't think for big rigs. We stayed here for 3 days. It's a pleasant KOA and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Long drive to Sequoia National Park, but not a hard drive. Staff was very nice and the park had a good number of trees. Our site I think was number 3 and well shaded. The park is older, but they keep it up. Would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The grass was pretty dead, but the people that worked here were nice and friendly. The park is a long drive from Sequoia National Park, despite what the name of the park implies. There is a pool, but no hot tub, unfortunately. We stayed here four days. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA campground far exceeded our expectation of what a KOA campground should be. The facility is old but very clean and everything is kept in excellent condition. Staff is very friendly and will do whatever they can to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. We enjoyed the campground and the staff so much that we extended our stay by an additional day. We will plan our future trips to try to stay at this campground if at all possible. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff, nice park. Gravel roads, big spaces and wide roads for big rigs. Appears to be very family friendly and convenient to highway. Don't be disturbed by neighborhood homes with barbed wire fences which you may drive past, the park is good. Excellent restaurants in Visalia. Ate at Fugazzi's Italian and Valhalla for Danish pancakes! We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice staff, helpful. 50 amp pull through sites have no grass. It's just sand spurs. Interior roads have no gravel left. The are just dirt and dust. Very kid oriented. Nice pool. Excellent laundry room. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This nightly rate reflects a stay two nights and get one free promotion. It's a good thing, because it would be over priced otherwise. The staff was friendly and there was a pool, but we didn't use it. The sites are mostly gravel and dirt, as are the roads. The grass was mostly brown and in dire need of water. The park is in a questionable part of town, but we didn't have any problems during our stay. The train whistle noise at night is constant so if you are a light sleeper it can be difficult. Our Verizon air card worked well. Some sites have large shade trees, so satellite reception may be an issue. I did use the cable hook up the first day because a dust storm blew through about 5 minutes after we pulled in. The cable reception quality was only fair, and had 10 channels. This is not a bad park, it is just on the low end of acceptable. For the price in the mid $50 range it should be much better. I would look around at other parks if I were to find myself in this area again. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.
