One of two walk-in campgrounds in the Calaveras Big Trees state park is the North Grove campground and is a great option for Calaveras Big Trees camping. It is located about two miles in, surrounded by the towering redwoods that give the park its name. Campsites are located along a loop with a few smaller loops that circle Big Tree Creek. While it is technically walk-in, the sites are located fairly close to the parking area, meaning you won’t have to carry your gear too far. While there are over 70 sites, in general the spaces are nicely distanced from one another. We’ve heard through the grapevine that the best are sites 39-50.

Beautiful place... not my fav campground, tho. We had site 50. It's down-sloping w/two mostly-flat spots between it and the campsite (53? 51?) at the bottom of the hill. No obvious division here (all trees between have been cut down) between sites, making it unclear which tent site "ought" to belong to which & definitely minimizing privacy. Tons of yellow jackets here. No shower at restroom 5, which is two rustic huts. The 60-74 sites appeared to be more private w/ a bath house. That said, the entire North Grove campground gets all the highway noise (think logging trucks going uphill at 4am) from Route 4. While it was nice to be able to walk to the Big Trees area from this area, I think next time, we'll try the Oak Hollow sites.
