Big Trees, even a redwood you can walk through.
Campsites and paths that are wheelchair and stroller accessible. Not that we had a wheelchair or a stroller, but it's great to see a place where just about anyone can experience such beautiful scenery. The paths around the North Grove were even, wide, and smooth.
A campground that wasn't too crowded and was pretty quiet, except for the noise we made, bringing a baby and a traumatized kid. The campsites were spacious. Even though we reserved and used two, because we thought we'd have at least a couple more camping, the seven of us and three tents could have easily fit in one site. We came on a Sunday evening, so we missed the weekend crowd, but it's still summer. I expected most of the campsites to be taken, but over half were empty.
Bathrooms with running water, flush toilets, and showers! Whoohooo!
Our campsite had a bed of pine needles, so sleeping in the tent was a lot more comfortable than if it was on rocky ground.
We also had a fire pit, so we were able to make s'mores! Yum! I think I'll make one in the microwave now, even though it won't be as tasty as using a marshmallow toasted over hot coals.
Every camping trip has to have something that isn't perfect. It wouldn't be a real camping trip otherwise.
There were a few mosquitoes that targeted Green Mama. Exclusively. We forgot to carry the bug repellant while we took the walk around the redwoods. Poor girl!

But all in all, we had a great time! It was fun camping with Grandson. We'll have to do that again!
