Big basin redwoods state park Camp

Tucked away high up in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Santa Cruz and San Jose, Little Basin Cabins & Campground is a gem in the redwood forest.  Boasting 534-acres for exploration, Little Basin is a California State Parks campground and part of Big Basin Redwoods State Park, the first state park in California. Students who attend WOLF School programs at Little Basin will discover the beauty and value of our fragile ecosystems amongst expansive meadows, pristine creeks, and vast trails in the redwoods.
