All CA State Park and US Forest Service rules apply. Pack it in - pack it out. Check in at the gate upon entering the park and ask for a basic Beaver Creek Area guide map. Service Dogs only but call Big Trees State Park first to be sure. Accessible late spring to late fall, depending on snow and weather conditions.
