Nothing is finer than cabin camping in the woods, except maybe cabin camping among the old-growth redwoods of the California Coast. Big Basin Redwoods State Park is packed with multiple hiking trails, waterfalls, wildlife, and redwoods. If you wish to explore these with a little luxury, reserve one of the 39 cabins at Huckleberry Campground.

There are traditional tent camping spaces that are accessible by car and eight walk-in spaces here as well, so if the cabins are not in your budget you can still find a great spot here. Restrooms with showers, potable water, food boxes, fire pits, picnic tables and parking for one vehicle all come included with your rental.

This campground, as well as the rest of Big Basin Redwoods State Park, is “Crumb Clean,” meaning they encourage tidy and responsible camping. This area is a natural habitat for the endagered marbled murrelet, and leftover food scraps tend to attract jays and ravens that eat the eggs and kill the young murrelet chicks.

Huckleberry loop sits right in the middle of the Shadowbrook Trail. If you take the trail, over the bridge and up, you can take it for a little over a mile, then and you can walk back to your campsite on Sky Meadow Rd.

The hike is pretty easy, easy enough for a 2 year old, and a person carrying a little one in a carrier.

The cabins also have wood stoves, which if you feed all night, will keep you cozy.

Be warned though, the air can be very moist, so even if it's not raining, your burnables (like paper) will be damp the next day.
