Update: There are 3 cabins still available!

In honor of our 40th anniversary, we are hosting our first-ever Family Campout at Little Basin! In 2007, POST acquired the Little Basin property with the help of the Sempervirens Fund. it is now part of the iconic Big Basin State Park. Meant for families, this campout will celebrate decades of POST’s work helping to expand Silicon Valley’s state parks as well as our $50-million Heart of the Redwoods Campaign, which is helping to protect over 10,000 acres of critically endangered redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Campers will enjoy refreshments at a POST-hosted reception and campfire, organized kids activities provided by WOLF school and several guided nature walks and activities for adults. Campsites will be assigned by POST – we will do our best to accommodate each attendee. We would also like to note that dogs and RVs are not allowed at this event.

About Little Basin

In 2007, Hewlett-Packard transferred ownership of Little Basin to the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and Sempervirens Fund for permanent resource protection and public recreation. These two organizations maintained the land until Little Basin was added to the California State Parks system, and is now open for the public to enjoy.
