Let Little Basin host your group in a natural setting in California's first state park.
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 Fund 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, Web of Life Field (WOLF) School, will provide program services at Little Basin. WOLF School runs dynamic and engaging educational programs in science and the environment, cultural history as well as leadership and 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.
A non-camping parking fee is $10/car/day.
"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."
— Heather Butler
"Little Basin is a fantastic tucked-away jewel of a campground that is near enough to run out for a burger, but far enough to lose yourself in the redwoods.”
— Chris Soriano
"The place was clean. If you keep it the way it is--recreation room available, kids area, sports courts maintained--that would be awesome!”
"Very informative and friendly. We appreciated that they came around to check on us periodically.”
— Don Chiu
