Everything you need

Definitely a great stay, big space, plenty of clean bathrooms, great camp store, and great hikes without having to leave the campground.

Sequoia National Forest Lovely Spacious Camp Sites

It sounds like there are multiple Big Meadow camp grounds in California. This review is for Big Meadow Campground, Sequoia NF - FS, CA. The photos are of site 009B. My visit was wonderful. The camp sites are large. We set up two 8 person tents and one 2 person tent and there was plenty of room for more. The firepits are very well made. They block the wind while allowing good airflow. There is a very large picnick table at each site, a bear box, and plenty of shade. There is a vault toilet that is cleaned daily. The sites boarder a stream. The water level is about 3 inches in July with temperatures in the 80's. This is a dog friendly site. There is no potable water at this site.

Crowded, but a great campground

This is a terrific campground in the middle of Shenandoah National Park. Great hikes close to the area and Big Meadows is terrific for stargazing.

Big meadow

All the lake campgrounds were full. Just stopped for the night. It was nice and quiet considering that it's right next to the highway and right before school started.
