No tent, no problem. These spacious cabins are the most luxurious place to stay on your next Big Basin Redwoods State Park camping adventure. The thought of a bed with mattress pads and a wood stove should motivate you to rest your bones after hiking through the many waterfalls, ancient redwoods, and lush canyons in this park. Each tent cabin can hold 4 campers, and there is space in the area to pitch a tent for 4 more occupants. Lock up your valuables if you'd like, the tent cabin door can be secured with a hook latch on the inside. If you are leaving to go on a hike or daytrip, you can bring a padlock to secure your cabin from the outside. Enjoy your day then gather friends and family around the fire ring for s’mores and ghost stories when the sun sets!

Overall Experience: Extremely positive
We had never been here before, so we didn’t know what to expect, but I reserved a tent cabin instead of a tent-only site because heavy rain was projected for both Sat and Sun. Turned out to be a great decision as the tent cabin provided the perfect shelter to keep our supplies dry and served as a perfect home base for hiking as it lies in the middle of countless trails of differing difficulties.
My one criticism of site 11, in particular (Not sure if this is an issue with other sites in the campground), is that the heavy rain flooded most of our site making it unusable (you certainly wouldn’t be able to pitch a tent). But we found ways to deal with it.
The tent cabins are perfect for winter camping weekends. It got pretty cold and rainy and the heater kept us nice and toasty. Beds were a bit hard, but not bad. We stayed in #16 which was great to hear the creek close by but was really muddy all around the site. Lots of trails in close distance, we even got to play a 'find-the-mushroom' game with the toddler which kept her going. Bathrooms close by had both hand dryers and soap, which is always nice. I would definitely return.
