We Had a blast at Big Trees sp. We are weekend warriors so we almost always pack in on Friday evenings which is fine, but pulling 30ft of 5th wheel through the old dim lit park was a bit of a challenge. The pads are kinda short and there were lots of trailers and really nice tow rigs sticking out which only added to the stress of pulling through the upper park.

We were in spot 114 which is very level, but the approach to park your trailer is on a pretty steep slope. We ended up pulling past the site going up hill and then rolling back down and wrapping the rig around a huge red wood. The overall size of our site was huge and the kids loved it. Trees/creeks/trails all around us. ALL of our neighbors were very respectful and very quiet.

The overall experience of big trees in awesome. We will defiantly be coming back again

Camping at the Big Trees is a definite must do. We were able to book a great site last minute. Campground has clean restrooms and lots of shade. We had booked two nights at site 4 in the north grove campground and a 3rd night for site 43. We had to cancel the last night due to the site being terribly sloped and uneven. Many sites marked for trailers and rvs weren't suitable. I would recommend looking in the first loop for a trailer site. All are paved and level.
Other than the site issues, we loved it there. And the trees? Amazing.
