Wuksachi Lodge at Sequoia National Park is surrounded by big trees and mountains. The lodge has 100 rooms spread over three buildings. One thing to know is the lodge buildings are separate from the main building with registration and the restaurant.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Wuksachi Lodge and would happily return for an extended stay. The room was so quiet and relaxing. We were sad to leave especially hearing that a huge snow storm was due to hit the park. It would have been amazing to just stay in the room and watch the snow fall.
We stayed in a Superior Room in the Hillman Building at the Wuksachi Lodge. The room had a nice king bed, 2 couches, a comfy chair, a desk with two chairs, a small refrigerator, coffee maker and flat screen tv.
The room has 30+ cable channels that may be available. There is wifi but it is not super fast. Be prepared especially during busy seasons that the wifi may be super slow.
The bathroom has toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion. One thing to know is the toilet is really low to the ground. If you have knee or hip issues you will want to be prepared for a low toilet. The shower has a small bathtub and shower.
One of the best parts of the king deluxe room is the separate room with the tv and couch. There is a sliding barn door that closes the room off from the bedroom. You could easily have someone sleep on the couch and be in their own space.
My wife wakes up early in the morning and was able to read in the room while I slept without waking me up.
There is a small walk up to the lodge from the parking lot. They had luggage carts available for moving bags up the small hill.
Additional Room Types include:
Standard – Standard rooms are available with either one or two queen beds and include private baths, televisions, refrigerators, hairdryer, and telephone.
Deluxe – Deluxe Rooms are available with either two queen beds or one king bed with a sofa bed. The rooms have private bathrooms, televisions, refrigerators, hair dryers, and a telephone.
Wuksachi Lodge Restaurant
The restaurant is casual and offers amazing views of large trees and the mountains in the distance. There is a gorgeous fireplace that was lit while we had dinner. The restaurant was super comfortable and we received great service during our meals.
Depending on the time of year you visit breakfast is either a buffet or ala carte. Since we visited during the slow season the menu was ala carte.
You can enjoy lunch at the restaurant at the lodge or if you are staying at the lodge you can order Trail Ready Lunches. There is a slip of paper in the room so you can order your meals to be ready the next morning.
As of January 2019 for $12.95 plus tax you can order a Club, Tuna Salad, Vegetable Wrap, Ham & Cheese or BLT sandwich that comes with fresh whole fruit, baked Lay’s Potato Chips, Trail Mix and Aquafina Bottled Water.

The meals can be picked up between 7 am and 10:30 am at the Peaks Restaurant.
The lodge asks that you make reservations for dinner so they know when to expect people. The menu offers a wide range of options including bison burgers, eggplant parmigiana, steak and more.

Things to know when planning a stay at the Wuksachi Lodge
DO NOT BRING YOUR LUGGAGE TO REGISTRATION!!!
The main building houses registration and the restaurant but is not where the lodges are. We totally missed the sign and brought all of our bags into registration and then had to haul them back to the car to move parking lots. Please learn from our mistake. If you have a few people you may want to drop someone off at registration and then park the car around the corner.
