Huckleberry Tent Cabins Campground is part of Big Basin Redwoods State Park, California's oldest state park located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The campground is known for offering a unique outdoor experience with the comfort of a cabin and the natural feel of camping.


Tent Cabins: The Huckleberry Tent Cabins are canvas tents built on wooden platforms. They typically include beds or cots, mattresses, and a wood stove or space for a heater. Some may offer additional amenities such as a front porch or basic furniture. However, exact specifics can vary, and it is important to check for the most current information.


General: While amenities may vary and could be impacted by ongoing renovations or updates, traditional offerings include shared restrooms, picnic tables, fire rings, and centralized water spigots. The campground might also offer a camp store where you can purchase basic provisions.


Hiking: Big Basin Redwoods State Park is famous for its ancient coast redwoods and offers over 80 miles of trails ranging from easy strolls to strenuous hikes. The Berry Creek Falls Trail is a popular hike to see beautiful waterfalls.

Wildlife Viewing: The park is home to an array of wildlife, from banana slugs to black-tailed deer.

Stargazing: The absence of city lights makes Huckleberry Tent Cabins a good spot for gazing at the stars.

Reservations and Cost

Reservations: Reservations are typically required, especially during peak seasons. Reservations can usually be made through the California State Parks reservation system or with the operating concessionaire.

Cost: Prices vary based on the time of year, cabin type, and included amenities. It is essential to check the current rates when planning your trip.

Climate and Best Time to Visit

Climate: The climate in this region is generally mild. Summers are warm, while winters can be cool with rain. Always be prepared for cooler temperatures at night.

Best Time to Visit: The best time to visit for the most pleasant weather is late spring through early fall.

Access and Regulations

Vehicular Access: Big Basin Redwoods State Park was affected by wildfires in recent years, so access routes may be limited or changed. Check the latest park alerts and road conditions before your visit.

Regulations: Regulations are in place to protect the natural environment. Typical rules include prohibitions on feeding wildlife, requirements to store food properly to avoid attracting animals, and restrictions on wood gathering to prevent resource depletion.

Tips for Visiting

  • Pack Accordingly: Even if bedding is provided, you may need to bring sleeping bags, pillows, and additional blankets.
  • Prepare for No Electricity: Tent Cabins often do not have electricity, so bring battery-operated or rechargeable lanterns and power banks.
  • Food Storage: Be vigilant about storing food due to wildlife; use lockers if provided.
  • Arrival Before Dark: Try to arrive before sunset, as finding your way around the campground can be challenging at night.

Important Considerations

Due to the effects of the CZU Lightning Complex fires in August 2020, Big Basin Redwoods State Park has experienced significant changes, with many areas damaged and undergoing restoration. Before planning a trip to Huckleberry Tent Cabins Campground, it is crucial to check the most up-to-date information on the park’s website or contact the park directly for the latest conditions and availability. Some facilities may be closed, and access to certain areas may be restricted during recovery and rebuilding efforts.
