‘Small Wonder’:
California’s oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods, is a granddaddy, making it all the more sweet that nestled in its nape is 534-acre Little Basin, the newest state park, formerly a private retreat. This summer marks Little Basin’s opening to the general public, including access to 12 log cabins and 38 tent sites — ideal for camping amid towering redwoods.
