We are booked for the nights of April 12th and 13th at Little Basin State Park near Boulder Creek in the local mountains. We will plan out the food at an upcoming scout meeting and meet at Roberts to shop before we go. We will also plan out the car pooling to make sure we can get everyone there and back.
Little Basin is a unique camping destination that features open grassy meadows, acres of dense redwood forest, and miles of hiking trails as well as two sports fields, a tennis court, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, a children’s playground, and more. Camping accommodations include cabins, tent spaces, RV sites and a large group camping area. All campsites are equipped with a BBQ grill, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground also includes piped drinking water, rest rooms, and showers.
Little Basin is a family, school, and group campground located within Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Boulder Creek, California. In 2007 Sempervirens Fund, the local land trust that led the effort to establish Big Basin Redwoods State Park more than 100 years ago, and the Peninsula Open Space Trust purchased the 535-acre Little Basin property and in 2011 they transferred it to State Parks, along with a stewardship fund to support its upkeep.
I’ve put together a list of all the possible activities we could work on up there that lead to rank advancement. It will be interesting as the 6th grade boys patrol has done many of the scout and tenderfoot requirements while the girls patrol is still working on those ranks as well. I think all scouts who haven’t earned the Scout rank should work on the memorization necessary so they can all come back with that done.
