Fairview Campground is not inside Sequoia National Park. It's in the town of Kernville, in the Sequoia National Forest, about a 4-hour drive from the Giant Forest area of Sequoia National Park where you'll find the big trees. If you want to camp nearby the big trees, consider the Lodgepole Campground near the Giant Forest inside the national park.
