Be sure to reserve the correct campsite: Big Basin Redwoods SP Tent Cabins (not Big Basin Redwoods SP or Little Basin)


“The tent cabins in Big Basin are a great way to stay in the State Park but they are not run by the park service. I have been going since the 80’s and love every minute. My kids have grown up in the loop. You can rent one cabin or many as we do and everyone has a great time among the huge redwoods. Trails of every level are available, the sites are all different but all offer a great camping experience. All have tables, storage lockers, a cabin with a wood burning stove and an outside fire pit. It is camping but camping at the Ritz. Great place to bring kids!” Bob G. 2017
