Accommodations in Mineral King, Sequoia National Park
Rick Gilles has reserved 3 rustic cabins at the historic Silver City Mountain Resort to accommodate the majority of our climbers. Silver City Resort is the only hotel and restaurant in this remote part of the park.
Two of the cabins (“Sunny Point” and “Rock Cabin”) have kitchens, fireplaces, toilets and sinks, but showers are in a separate restroom and communal shower building. The “Creekside” cabin has no bathroom and propane lights but has an outdoor fire pit, firewood included. Each cabin sleeps 4-5 people. To view all of these cabins, check out the Lodging page on the Silver City website. They have descriptions and photos of all of the cabins.
The cost will work out to be approx. $60 per person per night, depending on the cabin and number of people sharing it. You can stay 2 nights at Creekside or Rock Cabin (July 19-20) or 3 nights at Sunny Point (July 19-20-21).
To reserve your spot, contact Rick Gilles with your choice: either $120 (2 nights at Rock and Creekside) or $180 (3 nights at Sunny Point). These rooms are first come, first served. As cabins fill up, we will update this post. Any excess money owed Rick Gilles or due back to you will be adjusted the weekend of the climb.
Last time I checked, Silver City Resort had 2 remaining smaller 2-person cabins, ranging from rustic to deluxe. These rooms will be best for couples or people needing more privacy. If you would like to book these private accommodations, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include Rick Gilles’ name, and our group Trailmixer! Indicate which cabin or studio you would like to reserve, and Silver City will call you to get your credit card information. Don't wait, they will not last! Check Silver City Resort site.
There are a few private cabins for rent on AirBnB in the Silver City area as well. Camping is also possible, at 2 first come first serve campgrounds: Cold Spring Campground which is near the trailhead, and Atwell Mill Campground which is back down the road a bit. Cell service is non-existent in this remote area, so keep that in mind. It will be your responsibility to come to Silver City Resort to stay informed.
