Trails at Little Basin give you a great look at the redwood forest and the plants found near Big Basin. From orchids to tan oaks to ferns and lichen, it is an area rich in plant variety that is fairly easy to access via the trails.
LITTLE BASIN IS CLOSED UNTIL MARCH 8 DUE TO STORM DAMAGE.
Little Basin, once a retreat and campground for Hewlett Packard employees, is a 534-acre California State Parks campground that was recently added to Big Basin Redwoods State Park through an innovative approach in park operations and a public/private partnership between Sempervirens and Pennisula Open Space Trust and United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR).
Little Basin is open for reservations and groups of four or more will be able to camp in this majestic redwood forest with its expansive meadows. Just a short drive from the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, Little Basin features beautiful group camping areas, cabins, and miles of hiking trails.
In addition, UCCR is proud that its educational institute, the Web of Life Field (WOLF) School, will provide program services at Little Basin. The WOLF School runs dynamic and engaging educational programs in science & the environment, cultural history as well as leadership & team building to thousands of students and campers throughout northern and central California each year.
Larger groups including organized organizations, school groups, Scouts, colleges and universities, can reserve Little Basin exclusively and take full advantage of all the program and recreation opportunities.
Little Basin Cabins & Campground has it’s own website. Please visit littlebasin.org for more information on camping, trails, and programs.
