Fresno, CA (KFSN)-Kings Canyon National Park will partially reopen on Monday, October 18, as the crew controls a nearby wildfire and better weather approaches.

Some wilderness areas of Sequoia National Park will also open on Monday, but all development areas will remain closed, officials say.

The following areas within Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park will open, according to park officials.

  • Highway 180 large stump entrance station
  • Most Grant Groves, including General Grant Tree
  • Kings Canyon Visitor Center Information Desk
  • Cedar gloves
  • Kings Canyon Wilderness Excluding Redwood Canyon
  • East region of the Great Western Divide in the wilderness of Sequoia National Park
  • South Fork in the wilderness of Sequoia National Park
  • Due to damage to the water system, running water will not be available in Kings Canyon National Park until late October.

    Authorities do not have an estimate of when the development area of ​​Sequoia National Park will reopen.

    This is because the crew has obtained containment of the KNP Complex Fire. KNPComplexFire has grown to approximately 90,000 acres with 45% containment.
