In the latest milestone of its recovery, Big Basin Redwoods State Park — California's oldest state park, and the home of ancient redwoods trees towering nearly 300 feet tall — will reopen to the public July 22 for the first time since a historic wildfire charred nearly all of its landscape two years ago.

There's no running water.
