Description

If towering redwoods are what you're after, Sempervirens is the perfect spot for Big Basin Redwoods camping! Its picnic tables and fire rings make it a great spot for socializing amidst the great outdoors. Don't miss the nearby Sempervirens creek.

Looking for privacy? Sempervirens Campground might not be for you. Check out Huckleberry or Wastahi instead. Campsites are pretty close to one another, so you won't be able to keep any secrets from your neighbors.

On the plus side, you can park your car right by the site. The campground is easily accessible from the highway and Santa Cruz, making it a convenient spot for weekend warriors.
