Located on a windy road in the most remote section of Sequoia National Park, 90 minutes away from the crowds and the camping trailers found elsewhere in the Park, Silver City Resort has captivated a loyal group of guests over the years that have now sometimes become third generation. The resort is not however isolated between mountains and inaccessible creeks. What makes us unique is also the fact that four small cabin communities can be found nearby, well over a hundred years old, inhabited in the summertime by descendants of the original pioneers who spent their summers under the Redwoods and the Cedars of this unique alpine settlement.
