We are planning a campout at Big Basin Redwoods State Park (21600 Big Basin Way, Boulder Creek, CA 95006). There will be opportunities for Scouts to earn achievements and it is great introduction to camping for new Scouts in a wonderful setting. We will plan a hike, cooking and fun.
Big Basin Redwoods State Park is beautiful in April. We will be staying at the Blooms Creek Campground, situated among the largest continuous stand of ancient coastal redwood trees, some of the oldest and largest trees on the planet. Big Basin Redwoods State Park covers more than 18,000 acres, and has more than 80 miles of hiking trails.
Big Basin Redwoods State Park also boasts a large amount of waterfalls and diverse landscapes, such as lush canyon bottoms to grassy chaparral hills, a wide variety of animals such as deer, raccoons, lots of bird life, and even bobcats occasionally.
An announcement and sign up will go out on Teamsnap or you can respond on the Calendar page so we can get an idea of how many campers to accommodate.
