I'm so glad I got this book before going to these parks! It not only helped in planning our trip in terms of what we wanted to do and see in each park and how much time would be needed for all we wanted to do, but it was also a constant resource for us while we were in the parks! I made sure to pack it in my back pack each day we were there. It's truly a comprehensive guide that's easy to follow. Not only did we use it for the regular info like lodging, where to eat inside or outside the parks, top attractions, hikes, and so forth, but we also found ourselves using it to help determine what wildlife we saw (what we thought looked like a coyote was really a gray fox according to the descriptions in the book), finding the less publicized views and activites in these parks, history, and so much more! I'm especially glad we had it for Yosemite, where there is so much to see and do! These parks are so amazing and this guide helped us to prioritize our to-do list and make the most of our time there!

Well, I'm biased in favor of Frommers anyway but this book is really helpful when planning a trip. One thing I like about this book is that it also tells you where to NOT go. For instance, it tells you which campsites may be very hot in the summer months, etc. This is also easy to read with not a ton of details to bog down the reading.

I found this guide to be helpful but would prefer higher quality photos and maps. All of the information required is probably here, but after using higher quality guides for other national parks this was disappointing. There are few guides for Sequoia and Kings Canyon. It seems to require a lot of reading and digging to find what I needed compared to others in the past from Frommers.

I really liked this guide book for its compactness and good orientation to the nearby towns as well as inside-the-park attractions, roadways, and places to see, do, and eat. It was the first guidebook I went via the library, and then, I had to have one with me on the trip.

I purchased the Sequoia National Parks Guide before my trip. I booked my lodging based on selections in the guide. It was certainly money well spent. Since I was only in the park a couple of days, the guide was critical in helping me make decisions about what I wanted to make sure I saw while I was there. Without it, I don't think that I would have been able to figure all these things out in time.

This book is too compact and concise. I went to look up backpacking suggestions for Sequoia and realized that they didn't even suggest backpacking trips...only day hikes.
