Wastahi Walk-in Campground
Wastahi Walk-in Campground is hidden away about 1½ miles from Big Basin Redwoods State Park headquarters. This quiet, forested campground for tents only offers more of a backcountry feel than the other campgrounds in the park. Big Basin is one of the premier family camping destinations in California. Easy to explore trails leading in many directions along gurgling creeks and among giant redwoods, wildlife abounds, and a host of interpretive programs are available for all ages.
Wastahi Walk-in Campground sites are number 76 -102. They are only open during the summer from about May 22 to the end of Labor Day weekend. Campers park at a lot off Sky Meadow Road and carry their gear to their sites.
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.
