  • A beautiful campground. We were there for 5 days. You wouldn't think in October it would be in 30's at night but it was. Bring warm clothes to sleep in. Ace hardware has really good wood for $5.99. Not much smoke. Not too busy during the week, weekends are busy. We were in NG07. A beautiful spot with views of the meadow. Some families brought their family pet. Great campground, don't forget the quarters for the shower.
  • Great place to visit, we loved it. The only downside was that our small dog was not allowed on the trails. The picnic and campground area was very well maintained. One of the picnic areas had a trail down to a creek, it was beautiful. The visitor and information Center was well maintained and was informative. The staff was very friendly and informative. We had a great time, a must see if in the area and a great place to camp. Several people we talked to had seen a bear and her cub while hiking on the trails.
  • Unique breathtakingly beautiful and worth taking the drive! Day trips,field trips, attending one if the center's special events, and ESPECIALLY when CAMPING BIG TREES' natural wonders never fail to inspire awe. Our family likes to visit atleast once each season! Winter it's a wonderland blanketed in snow, Spring warm sunlit meadows full of gorgeous wildflowers, Autum leisurely walking amongst the fragrant pines surrounded by dazzling displays of color as the leaves change. Even if you only get to go once in your life you'll understand why we, locals will continue to enjoy it for the rest of our lives.
  • Tranquil Beauty Beyond Words! Sadly, however, we didn't have to walk far to find evidence of daily visitors trampling delicate saplings and flora when in disobedience they choose to meander off-trail to scrub some Sequoia redwood bark from its majestic base. Litter was also easy to find. Dropped by imitation nature lovers! Bless those hard working rangers who work hard to keep the park looking clean and natural!
  • Another one of my favorite parks. This park has the famous red woods. Lots of camping space. Fun place for the family. Has lots of trails for all. Very easy to get to on the Highway.
