Calaveras Big Trees State Park features two giant groves of some of the oldest living redwoods trees in California. Located on the western slope of Sierra Nevada, the park includes a visitor center. Beaver Creek tumbles through acres of pine trees. The two groves of Big Trees survived heavy 19th century logging. A nature trail guides visitors on an easy stroll through the grove. Other areas of the park provide places for picnicking, fishing and hiking - including a magnificent view of the Sierra Nevada.
Calaveras Big Trees State Park Campground has 109 campsites (47 tent-only) in two camping areas (North Grove and Oak Hallow). There are also 3 group camping sites. Both camping areas are set among beautiful stands of redwood trees.
