The Mineral King unit of Sequoia tends to attract backpackers and campers, but for those looking for a roof over their head, this is a top pick (for both couples and families). The variety of cabins here is notably wide: Some are less than 10 years old and others date back to the 1930s; they range from about 200 to 1,500 square feet; and some share bathrooms, while others approach luxury in their own folksy sort of way. Built at the site of a mining town that once had 3,000 residents, the resort has more personality than the lodgings in more well-trod parts of the parks, and all have access to the miraculous pies baked at the Silver City restaurant.
