California, a land of giant trees and big dreams, where orchards abound in the Central Valley nestled at the edge of the great Sierra Nevada mountain range with natural glory beyond imagination. We celebrate the rich history of the region and the giant Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, National Forests, and Monument as they attract the world. This great land is the home of The Sequoia King. Family owned and independently operated with tourism and news from the Sequoias, celebrating our relationship with care of creation and love for our common man.

The Sequoia King is an online publication featuring tourism and news from the Giants of California. If you care for creation and love your common man, we would love to partner with you.

Our unique team has crafted marketing images, film, and content for the world’s leading brands and would love to partner with you to spread good news. We only recommend products and services we love as a independent, family owned site as we feature camping, history, food, sports, events, safety, and woodsy lodging from the Sequoia region.

We love adventure and the outdoors. We’re fans of conservation, creation, and nature. Nostalgia and the vintage feel of yesterday are friends, yet we love modern science and education in a family friendly format.

We support the National Park and Forest Service, and every great organization that supports them.
