The Sequoia Lake road in and out of camp will be travelled heavily on the first and last day of each camp session. There are five camps around the lake which means a steady stream of passenger vehicles, service vehicles, vans, and buses on the road. Please be mindful of the posted speed limit (15 mph), blind curves, pedestrians and wildlife.
