Welcome to Little Basin

We are excited to welcome you to the Little Basin blog and website! Little Basin is such a unique camping opportunity in the Santa Cruz mountains, we want to spread the word! Yes, it is a new California State Park…yet it offers small groups (4 or more) fantastic camping options…and larger groups the possibility of renting group campsites and even exclusive use. Also, the recreational activities abound! 2 playing fields, a playground, volleyball court, basketball court, and a tennis court really do make Little Basin a "stand-out" campground.
