Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Big Basin State Park:

"I would recommend the Monterey Bay area (Carmel By the Sea, Monterey, Pacific Grove and also San Juan Bautista and some of the coastal redwoods (a different species than the sequoias that you see in Yosemite Valley Visitor Center or Kings Canyon National Park The main coastal redwood National Park is around Crescent City but if you didn't want to go that far north there are some at Big Basin State Park"  See More

"Near SF, I would recommend Dennis the Menace Park and Big Basin State Park"  See More

"Ok - Sonoma makes a bit more sense to visit California parks I would be inclined to go to Yosemite Valley Visitor Center (staying at Yosemite Valley Lodge if you can get a room there - not camping) and/or Kings Canyon National Park staying at Wuksachi Lodge (Sequoia National Park is adjacent) Also there is Big Basin State Park which we visited as a day trip on the way to San Francisco, although I think they do have camping."  See More
