Big Basin Redwoods State Park Campgrounds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This park is the granddaddy of all the incredible California state parks. Big Basin has wonderful camping, as well as tent cabins with interior wood stoves. Lovely Wastahi Campground is all walk-in tent campsites, with the farthest campsite 200 feet from the parking areas. Huckleberry is all walk-in as well, with the farthest site 50 feet from the parking. With Blooms Campground and Sempervirens Campground, Big Basin has another 102 developed campsites for RVs, but the park doesn’t feel at all crowded. The huge redwoods give Big Basin a certain eerie calm.

14-day stay limit (7-day stay limit in summer), 30-day stay limit annually; 8 people/ site; reservations recommended on holidays and summer weekends."

We have yet to camp here but the hikes are the perfect workout after busy weekdays! We took a pack of friends of various ages up and a few branched off to opt out of the more intense route. There are many routes so lots of fitness levels can be accommodated. Wildlife: baby snakes, birds, random critter-life. It was a great workout! I wasn''t the map person so not really sure where we were. It was longer and more intense that we expected. Camel packs to stay hydrated are a good idea. The view was a panorama of trees. So nice 🌲🌲🌲!

Big Basin is such a beautiful park. There are lots of wonderful options for hiking, many are very scenic, and the camping is great here, too. The forests are thick with ferns and gorgeous redwood groves. Dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails, though.

The Big Basin Redwood SP is really big and beautiful. The campsites are pretty small. We were able to fit 2 tents and a canopy in one site and that was kind of pushing it. The canopy is 10x10, tent one was 14x9, and tent 2 was 13x11. Mosquitoes and spiders are heavily present with in the campsites. Squirrels and chipmunks, and blue jays will greet you in the morning, while raccoons will try and still left out food at night. There is no swimming or fishing available, however the hiking trails are wonderful. The facilities are well maintenance and the general store has everything you need if you forget anything, but of course everything is expensive. The weather maintained a cool 76 degrees during the day and dropped around 54 at night in the month of June. Big Basin Redwood SP highly recommended. Tent cabins are also available for rent. (4 stars due to campsite size and overabundance of mosquitoes and spiders)

Lovely campground, but crowded with loud partiers and yes, alcohol-induced puking. Folks, if a man pukes in the woods, EVERYONE can hear him. Next time, we're going to try for one of the walk-in sites. (They weren't open so early in the season.)
