Calaveras Big Trees State Park Visitor Center Entrance Visitor Center & Museum 

The Visitor Center is a great place to find information and purchase a park souvenir.  Inside the Visitor Center, you are able to visit the park museum. Our museum has many large and small mammals on display as well as hands-on items.  Come see what a black bear looks like and explore the differences between a mountian lion and a bobcat. The museum can help you learn more about park history, fire, and giant sequoias.  Admission to the museum is included with your paid admission to the park. 


The Calaveras Big Trees Association, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is responsible for operating the bookstore inside the Visitor Center. The bookstore has many unique and one of a kind items for all members of the family. Come browse our large selection of books, t-shirts, puzzles, and more. The bookstore is open the same hours as the visitor center so come on in and take a look.
