considering the price I do believe they should provide a better facility and service. Although the tents are nice they are a bit simple with concrete floors and small rugs. The shared toilets and showers are not close by and are very utilitarian. With just a bit of effort and money they could substantially improve the experience by upgrading the...

My wife and I stayed at the Sequoia High Sierra Camp for three nights in early July. I was intrigued at being able to hike at high altitude without pitching a tent or carry a heavy load. What we found exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing: granola, fresh juice, fresh fruit, and cooked-to-order omelettes in the morning; sandwiches, fruit...

true hidden gem. You are in the forest with majestic trees and fresh air. Burr and Suzanne are warm, friendly and very accommodating. Special requests are always met with a smile and a great attitude. The conversation with others who are like minded are a terrific bonus! The evenings are spent with a glass of wine, shared gourmet dinners and...

unless you want enjoy fresh cooked meals, daily hikes over miles of forested trails, enjoying meeting like minded people over a glass of wine while watching the sunset over Lookout Peak, sleeping in a cozy tent cabin with a down comforter. Burr and Suzanne are great hosts, and make sure that your experience is wonderful.

We spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed ourselves. Burr and Suzanne are great hosts, the food was delicious, and the setting is awesome. You really get away from it all. It seems to attract like-minded people who are fun to hang out with. Be prepared to do some "hiking" around the camp itself - our cabin was quite a...

We stayed at SHSC for three nights. This is a hike in camp so be prepared to hike in with what you'll need for the length of your stay. You should also be prepared for the altitude. We were not totally acclimated to the elevation so it made the hike in a bit difficult. The first part of the hike...

This is a private camp at incredible altitude in the middle of a massive National Park. That location is the main reason this place is so unique (and expensive). This is not The Ritz Carlton; This is not a luxury suite on a cruise; there are many other things that are of the same price range that are nothing like...

Great hiking, accommodations, and food. Beautiful sunsets! Wonderful place to meet adventurous people who love the outdoors. Wine list is almost all French wines. Need to upgrade wine list to California wines. French wines can be good, but most of us wine drinkers on the west coast know nothing about them, and they do not fit our tastes. Go local,...

The Camp offers either a 1-mile hike in, or a 12-mile route. It's perched at about 8,300 feet in elevation and looks out at some phenomenal peaks. Tent cabins offer a level of comfort and convenience seldom found in the wilderness, and meals, provided in the lovely main building, are exquisite and served with sophistication and style. Showers are available...

This is truly a unique back country experience. All of these positive reviews do justice to the place. I would simply add that the food is beyond ones expectations. Note that this is a hiking destination. If you want to fish, this ain't the place, thanks to the location and the drought. But go. Enjoy the hospitality of Burr and...
