The food here was delicious! Especially after a long day in the national parks. Highly recommend!

The restaurant is great - ambience, staff, food, price - a good experience all in all! We visited during the Covid-19 pandemic. The outdoor dining tables have sufficient space between them. We ordered spaghetti with marinara sauce & sweet-sour chicken. The food was very flavorful & generous portion size. It's the closest restaurant outside the Kings Canyon national park (Grant Grove side). The area is dotted with succulents in cute pots, also has well-mannered cat & dog.

This is a great rustic inn directly on CA Highway 180. It's not more than 20 minutes from the National Park Entrance but only a mile from Project Survival's Cat Haven where you can see a collection of big game cats under protection. Gena's Sierra Inn features cozy bungalow style rooms and a fabulous made to order restaurant. It even has a deck with a pool and hot tub that is perfect to sit under to watch the star show in the dark skies at night. Learn more about the Kings Canyon Region by visiting our Google Maps Pin.

Base camp for the National Parks


Are you looking for a great inn, hotel or motel as a base camp for day hikes into Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park? Rent one of nine rooms from Genas Sierra Inn, eat at her restaurant Genas Place surrounded by paintings and local artwork and try a local artisan wine or craft beer sampler from Sequoia Tasting Room next door.

Just 17 minutes from the National Park entrance, but only 2800 ft in elevation, you can enjoy the Sequoias and the Sierras during the day and save the hassle from having to set up and maintain a camp at night.  The best of both worlds!
