If you want to avoid the crowd of Yosemite but enjoy the same type of atmosphere, try Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks in the southern Sierra. Sequoia is famous for its huge groves of the big trees, and has wonderful hiking and camping areas, swimming, high-country trails, and cave exploring. Kings Canyon centers on the stunning canyon of the Kings River. It is less crowded and full of fun hikes and day trips.
