The Big Tree -- what a small name for something so grand and enduring. Understatement can never be overestimated!
This park was not crowded, sites were large, and the birds were awesome! We parked on the beach the first night, but it was so windy that we moved to the campsites in the woods for the remainder of our trip. They were great. Lots of privacy, birds.
