Description

Big Meadow Campground is spacey, dreamy, and scenic as a Mother Nature. Smack dab in the midst of Calaveras Ranger District, you will bask your adventure loving heart in mature forests of firs, pines, and scattered aspen. All the sites are secluded, shaded, and big, making your stay not interfere with your neighbors too much. Big meadow is right near Highway 4, so make sure when picking your site you consider traffic noise pollution!
