Previously the town consisted of just two logging ranches.
In 1928, Camp Wolfeboro was established nearby as a Boy Scout camp and continues to be in operation today.

Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Calaveras became a State Park in 1931 to preserve the large groves of giant sequoias redwood trees, the largest living thing in the world. If you want to see the big trees, but skip the big crowds of Yosemite, then this is your place. The high altitude and close proximity to the high sierras contributes to a mild climate here.
This grove includes Discovery Tree, the first giant sierra redwood noted by Augustus T. Dowd in 1852. Since that discovery, this area has become one of California's popular tourism attractions. The Park also houses two main campgrounds, picnic areas and hundreds of miles of established trails. Popular activities include cross-country skiing, hiking, mountain biking and bird-watching.
