Just because you came to Big Basin Redwoods State Park doesn’t mean you can’t take a moment to appreciate the sequoias! This is still a great spot to explore all of the Coastal Redwoods of the area, with easy access to nearby trails ranging from half-mile nature walks to ten-mile hikes out to Berry Creek Falls. Sequoia Group Camps feature two group sites, and each accommodates 50 people. In other words, Big Basin Redwoods has you covered no matter the size of your camp. Both sites offer picnic tables, fire rings and plenty of open space, so kick up your feet and enjoy your 49 fellow campers surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.

Drop some Sequoia Group Camps knowledge on us.
We've gone to the Sequoia Group Camp for the past 10 years. There are two sites. The lower camp seems more popular for groups with kids and is closer to the bathroom. We stay at the upper camp. The tent sites are a little farther apart. Each site has one fire ring and you have to supply your own firewood. The bathrooms are great: flush toilets and hot showers for $0.50/2minutes. There is fairly short trail down to the ranger station/store and major trailheads. Be sure to use the lockers for your food - raccoons have been a problem in the past.
I love this campground! It is nice and shaded. I also love it because it is untouched land. The nature here is beautiful and lush and thriving. The dirt is heavy and red and the trees are the tallest greet moss covered trees. There is also a creek that you can find! Some campsites will have the creek flowing by them. It's so refreshing and even fun/safe freshwater to swim in. It's a natural habitat.
This place was lovely. We went in summer and it was not crowded at all. The sites are private and secluded, as well as cool because we were under the redwood canopy. We went on a nice hike and it was a serene experience.
