“preserving giant sequioas”

Calaveras became a State Park in 1931 to preserve the North Grove of giant sequoias. This grove includes the "Discovery Tree", also known as the "Big Stump", the first Sierra redwood noted by Augustus T. Dowd in 1852. This area has been a major tourist attraction ever since, and is considered the longest continuously operated tourist facility in California.

Such an amazing place to visit and walk around. The size these trees can grow is astronomical. The fact that a bear cub also popped by to say hello just made my day even better.

Bears! And swimming! And awesome trees and hikes! Yellow jackets at the campsite though. You can bring your own wood for the campfire.

A place for combining hiking and swimming!! We stayed there overnight at the campsite. Everything was super and living among these giant trees was exaggerating.

The light penetrates within the tents in the morning and wakes you up smoothly while the chill from the shadows created by the leaves equalizes the temperature.

The campsites are very clean and there are bathrooms, showers and fire stoves.

Fantastic for a weekend escape!
