Giant forest: is known as being the best sequoia grove of all, it contains at least 12 of the top 40 giant sequoias - that's 5 to 6 more than any other, most groves are lucky to just have one.  This may be the reason some of the biggest have been over looked because there are just so many large trees. Giant Forest is where the largest living thing on the planet lives, the General Sherman. Since the early 1900, Giant Forest has had two villages for visitors uses. The villages provide places for people to stay in either lodges, cabins or camping. It also provides all the needs of visitors including cafeteria, restaurant, market, two gift shops, pub, various amphitheaters Kaweah lodging, and lots of things for making the GF area more pleasurable.
