We were think of a family trip down to the Sequoias this summer, but with the 9 mpg that we get towing I found my self planning the fuel stops more then the fun stops. Decided to put off long haul trips until I can get a Aux tank.
Plenty of gas all down Hwy 99, the main North/South route on the West side of the Sierras (besides I-5). 99 goes back and forth between 2 and 3 lanes each way. We took the main way in on Hwy 198, however once you get into the park you can't take trailers over a certain length past a certain point in the park. There's lots of signs and the Park Rangers at the gate will make sure you know. I don't remember what their length limit is, but I'm sure it's all over the websites. We stayed at the Potwisha Campground, which was real nice and not too big. No hookups, though- power, water or sewage. It's right next to one of the rivers and some trail heads. Also there's a free dump station and fresh water fill right across the street, so you can plan to tow dry! The pic in my last post on this thread is in that campground.
