As Doc Holiday says, “I’ll be your Huckleberry." While he most likely wasn’t referring to this Big Basin camping site, this is not a spot to be overlooked. There are a total of 30 tent campsites (7 of which are walk-in), as well as 36 “Tent Cabins." The tent cabins have to be reserved in advance and provide a pretty unique experience. Some of the sites are very close to Sempervirens Creek. As far as the tent campsites go, they are “semi-private," and are decently large. Each campsite offers a picnic table, fire pit, and a food locker. Sleep among the trees at this awesome Big Basin Redwoods State Park camping location.

Very nice campground. Hike-in spots are just like 100 yards from the the parking spot. Bathrooms are surprisingly hotel-clean :-O. The hikes include three decently sized waterfalls and tons of redwoods!

This is a beautiful area with fantastic, long trails, so you can't go too wrong getting a campsite anywhere in Big Basin Redwood State Park. That said, site 60 in Huckleberry is right beside the parking lot and across from the bathrooms/dumpster, so I probably wouldn't pick it (or surrounding sites) again. It's also pretty close to the other sites, so you can hear their music/see their fire. Overall, more of a quick-and-dirty party site than a secluded getaway.

Beautiful campground, though some sites are small if trying to fit 2 tents in. Great restroom/shower amenities, and just a very short car ride to the park HQ where many of the popular trailheads are (can park at the HQ lot). My only knock against Big Basin is that it's one of the most popular and crowded state parks I've visited, so need to reserve very early in advance.

Beware of yellow jackets at the campgrounds during the warm months. The park staff hang traps throughout the sites but they are still terrible.

Lovely campground - amazing to be able to sleep surrounded by giant redwoods. We came here on a rainy weekend in the fall and camped in the tent-only spot 61H. Though it's next to the restrooms, it was a quieter weekend so there wasn't too much noise or light distractions. And on that note, the restrooms were the cleanest I've seen of any campground!

However, beware if you're camping here during a particularly rainy period - we (along with most others in the campground) packed up a day early. Because the tent pitch areas are lower than surrounding areas, you may end up with your tent submerged in a few cm of water! I'm hoping to come back again to fully explore the Sea to Skyline trail.

Most sites are private and it's generally quiet.
