Visiting Sequoians

Getting Here is Easy but Leaving is Hard

P1030456Individuals who might be contemplating becoming a member of our clothes free club are welcome to visit up to 3 times during our Open Season, weekends and holidays, from April through October.

The 3 visits give you a chance to get to know the members and see if the facilities, events, hiking trails, and natural surroundings appeal to you enough to want to be a part of our Club.

Visitors are required to register at the office with a photo I.D. Our office is open for registration from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. on those days.  If you are an AANR member, you will need to bring a valid AANR membership card to eligible for the discounted AANR gate fees.

For first time visitors, after you check in, you will be given a tour by a designated member of Sequoians.  After 3 visits, individuals who wish to continue visiting must decide to become a member of our club.  The office staff will have the applications available for you.

AANR/INF members who wish to request camping privileges when the Club is closed need to contact the office in advance.  During the week when the office is closed leave a phone message or email us using the form on the Contacts Us page.   Messages and email are checked weekly.
