Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks will feel the squeeze this summer as some of their campgrounds remain closed.
Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks are starting the summer season with one-third fewer campsites and very dangerous river conditions, the National Parks Service announced Thursday.
Work on the campgrounds is ongoing, but the amount of trees killed by drought, insect activity and a heavy winter have created more hazards than expected, NPS said in a press release.
Sequoia National Park campgrounds in Foothills are open, but Dorst Creek and Cold Springs are closed.
The closed campgrounds in Kings Canyon National Park are Sunset and Moraine.
