    Overview

    Description

    Season for Peak Fees: 05/15 to 09/15

    Calaveras Big Trees State Park features two giant groves of some of the oldest living redwoods trees in California. Located on the western slope of Sierra Nevada, the park includes a visitor center. Beaver Creek tumbles through acres of pine trees. The two groves of Big Trees survived heavy 19th century logging. A nature trail guides visitors on an easy stroll through the grove. Other areas of the park provide places for picnicking, fishing and hiking - including a magnificent view of the Sierra Nevada.

    Check the State Parks website for additional information on the weather, suggested day hikes, or to see the park brochure, campground map, park photos, video, and more. Information available will vary from park to park.Click here

    Phoenix Lake Golf Course

    Phoenix Lake's 9-hole golf course is 2,711 yards of scenic golf from the longest tee for a par of 35. The course was designed by Bert Stamps and opened in 1968. We pride ourselves in the course's beauty and difficulty. It offers narrow fairways, plentiful oak trees and the winding Sullivan Creek that comes into play on many of our scenic holes.
