    CAMPGROUND CLOSED DUE TO FIRE:

    Public access to Big Basin has been severely impacted by the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex Fire and ongoing fire recovery work, but the park is now open for limited day-use access. Reservations for parking are not required, but are encouraged due to the limited amount of first-come, first-served parking available. Reserve a parking space. The parking fee is $6 per vehicle plus a $2 reservation fee or $10 per vehicle without a reservation. No reservations or fees are required for visitors arriving by foot, bike, or bus. Read the FAQs for more information on the reservation system and visiting Big Basin.

    Established in 1902, Big Basin Redwoods is California’s oldest state park. In the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Big Basin camping's biggest attractions—literally—are its ancient coast redwoods. Some of these giants are more than 50 feet around and as tall as the Statue of Liberty. At 1,000 to 1,800 years old, some may predate the Roman Empire. The park also offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, lush waterfalls, and a fascinating natural and cultural history.

    The park has more than 80 miles of trails. Some of these trails link Big Basin to Castle Rock State Park and the eastern reaches of the Santa Cruz range. The Skyline to the Sea Trail threads its way through the park along Waddell Creek to the beach and adjacent Theodore J. Hoover Natural Preserve, a freshwater marsh.

    The park has a number of waterfalls, a variety of habitats (from lush canyon bottoms to sparse chaparral-covered slopes), many animals (deer, raccoons, bobcats) and lots of bird life—including Steller’s jays, egrets, herons and California woodpeckers.

    Saratoga, California

    Sanborn County Park, nestled near Saratoga, CA, offers a solid camping experience with a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. The RV area features around 20 sites, each equipped with water and 30-amp hookups. While the RVs are parked close together, the setup isn't overly intrusive. The park's restrooms and showers are well-maintained, ensuring a comfortable stay.

    One of the standout features here is the park's free Wi-Fi, which, despite some reports of instability, can handle video conferencing. However, cell reception is pretty much non-existent, so plan accordingly. The park also has multiple picnic areas and plenty of space for kids to run around and play. For those who enjoy hiking, there are several trails ranging from short walks to longer hikes.

    The tent and group camp sites are currently closed for forest restoration, but the RV spots are still available. Just a heads-up, the road leading up to the park is narrow, so take it slow, especially if you're driving a larger vehicle.

    Wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate the frequent sightings of deer and wild turkeys. If you're planning to cook, remember that only charcoal fires are allowed—no wood fires here. The park's quiet, especially midweek, and the gate closes at 8 PM, so make sure to arrive before then.

    Overall, Sanborn County Park is a great spot for a family getaway, offering a mix of nature, convenience, and a touch of adventure.

    In the summer, first-come, first-serve camping is available for only $15 per night. The day use picnic area is free. Although the picnic and camping area is closed during the winter months, the first access point adjacent to Highway 2 is open year-round (limited parking). When snow makes the high country is inaccessible, give this park a try for snowshoeing or a winter stroll. In the spring, return to see the wildflowers. Trail names like Ladyslipper, Arrowleaf Ridge, and Pentstemon Point give a hint about which flowers may be glimpsed along the route.
