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.

Just camped here over July 4th weekend and it was fantastic! Beautiful campground within the Redwoods, lots of shade, plenty of space between your neighbors. The staff did a fantastic job of keeping the restrooms clean often. Only one downside was the check-in process this weekend but it is understandable with the holiday. Would highly recommend this site!
Really enjoyed camping here. A lot of the campsites are very spaced out so you don't have neighbors right next to you. Campsite 63 was very private, while at the same time really close to the water spigot and not far from the bathrooms. The bathrooms have bright lights at night, so consider that before picking a site that's right next to the bathroom. The bathrooms themselves are very clean and are all individual unisex bathrooms, which is nice for privacy. The campsite had a nice deep fire pit and a food locker to keep your food away from the Jays, Ravens, etc. Only complaint was that our campsite was very slopey with not a lot of flat space, but we made it work okay. Overall this is a great place to camp, with some stunning Redwoods!
