The primary road into Kings Canyon is closed in October 2018 for repair. So all that there is to do in the park is the Grant Grove and the Panorama Point (both good things to see).

Beatiful place at the end of the sequioa and kings canyon park. Camps by the river. Los of trails to do nearby. Places have fotos containers for bears. We actually saw 3 bears!

The drive along the kings river is great. Love the review but need to be careful. some water falls along the road is nice and approachable. no hiking even needed.

Would highly recommend the detour to Kings Canyon if you’re visiting Yosemite. Far quieter with amazing views across the Canyon. The drive along Cedar Drive was gorgeous with hardly any cars on the road but the views certainly equalled those at Yosemite without the stress...More

Beautiful park with a great drive along and through the canyon. Lots of areas to pull to the side of the road and take in the views.

Do not know about air quality at Kings Canyon. Kings Canyon might be worth a trip but it is not really a substitute for Yosemite when it comes to the views but I understand your fire considerations.
