Site 122 is one of the best! Right next to the water but super well set up and private!!

Virtually every campsite is wooded and shady, so you're sure to be comfortable in nearly all of them. Campsites 113, 114, 122, 123, 127-129, 146, 156, 155 are all pretty private. Lots of great <1.5mi for small kids. Great Jr. Ranger program at 3pm each day.

Also stayed in 122B - it was incredible! So much room to spread out amongst the trees, a good distance from neighbors, and backs up to the creek. The campground itself is pretty magical, nestled amongst the redwoods, plus several bathrooms and showers available.

Beautiful and well maintained camp - I stayed in the Sempervirens Loop, which was a little more private and quiet than the main camps, where there were a lot of families, etc.
There are loads of great hikes to take, for all persuasions, from very easy short loops to long, challenging hikes. Camp centre is well equipped: firewood for sale, a well stocked gift shop and small grocery/cafe with espresso, snacks and a small museum attached.
Showers are a quarter for two minutes, but beware - they aren't very warm!
This is a great place to stay a few nights, hike and check out the redwoods and the abundant wildlife. It's a beautiful place. Boulder Creek down the road is a very quaint mountain town, and worth a look as well.

Big Basin is stunning! I stayed in site 105 right by the entrance. I didn't mind the cars occasionally passing by but if you want peace and quiet you may want to pick sites closer to the creek. The only thing I didn't like about 105 is the driveway has a gutter and it scraped the bottom of my car so park on the side if you can or if you're in an SUV, you'll be fine. Besides that, I had an amazing experience and can't wait to go back!
