Blooms Creek Campground
Upper and Lower Blooms Creek Campground are situated on either side of Blooms Creek, about ½ mile from Big Basin Redwoods State Park headquarters. Soaring stands of old-growth coast redwoods in the park draw visitors from around the country. Trails vary from easy strolls to full-day hikes, some routes among the giant trees along creeks, others to waterfalls.
Blooms Creek Campground is one of the most popular in the park because of its proximity to many of the main attractions. The campground offers many fine amenities, including hot showers. Lower Blooms Creek includes sites #103 - #138, while across the creek more secluded Upper Blooms Creek Campground contains sites #139 - #156. All sites are closed from November through late March. During the shoulder seasons (late March to mid-May and September 11 through October), the sites are only open on Friday and Saturday nights.
Reservations for all Big Basin campsites are available from 2 days up to 7 months in advance. Reservations become available in one-month blocks on the first of the month, 7 months in advance. For example, on January 1 campsite reservations become available for all of July.
