I would love to do a trip like that. We have ventured into northern US from Vancouver Canada here a couple of times now. Oregon coast is gorgeous. One place you want to visit when you come north of the border is Whistler. Just over an hour north of Vancouver on the Sea to Sky highway. Probably one of the nicest drives I have ever been on. Lots to do there in the summer too with the mountain biking and trips up on the gondolas. Great atmosphere there too. Riverside RV resort is a 25 min walk to town and they also have a shuttle bus. Vancouver has lots to do too.

We will have our 2yo and 6mo boys with us so there won't be any extreme sports on this trip We'll be mostly biking, light hiking and beach time I expect.

Since we can't see it all I'm wondering which park you prefer when it comes to Yosemite and Sequoia. I'm dying to see those redwoods! We're doing Yellowstone on the way and the Oregon coast.

Can you also tell me which campgrounds you liked best?

We did a similar trip last spring/summer. Liked Yosemite over Sequoia if you miss out on securing an inside the park reservation then book one outside and drive in with your TV. If you can get someone to look after your young ones in Oregon then book an adventure in a dune buggy on the massive sand dunes on the coast.
I know you can't get everywhere but Vancouver Island is to die for with scenery etc.
We stayed at Fishing Bridge in the centre of Yellowstone as it had full hook-ups but the park is so huge you still will be doing a lot of driving every day but your boys will love the abundance of wild life.

Enjoy your adventure and drive safe.

I am incredibly bias but I would choose Yosemite over Sequoia any day. The geology of that place is just amazing. I have camped and hiked all over Yosemite since the 1950's and just love it. I almost joined the National Park Service just because of it! As others have said, though, you need to get reservations NOW. It even may be too late already. Enjoy in any event; and make sure you at least do a day trip or two to Yosemite!

Hi guys:
Ok, Last summer (2014) did a Sequoia/Yosemite trip from Nevada. That being said It was my 2nd trip to both places stayed at different locations each time but these were truly the best:
If you're going to be coming up from Los Angeles, You'll hit Sequoia first. There are two ways to get in.

1 - Thru the south entrance fro the town of KernVille. A few Campground in Kernville, CA. About $40 - 45 or so USD per day with Town of Kern and amenities close by along with Lake Isabella.

The other is the west entrance to Sequoia and is only 3 miles from the west Sequoia entrance in the town of Three Rivers, Calif. It's a small town with just a small store for necessities and a couple of gas stations (one has diesel and both are expensive $5 at the time I went). But Sequoia RV ranch is peaceful and a small creek runs thru it. Lot's of trees and most sites have a concrete pad. Also has Internet service. As stated a few miles to the entrance. Redwoods are at top of mountains. A "Discovery Center", is there. Beautiful lake(s) surround the area.
Check out the URL's below:


To go to Yosemite from Three Rivers (Sequoia) is about a 4 1/2 - 5 hour drive. I highly recommend http: Yosemite lakes RV Resort. They are the closet and run by Thousand-trails but they do except the public. They are the closest to the entrance to Yosemite (which will still take at least 1/2 hr) and have amenities for the kids and adults. They have internet if you park close to the Clubhouse. You better have Sat TV or DVD's. Check out the url below:

The other is Yosemite Pines..... Dusty, minimal pads, and about 20 minutes further (you pass them as you go to Yosemite Lakes RV).

Anyway, that's my input. Hope it helps you decide. Have a safe and joyous trip.
