Big Basin Redwoods - How bad are the last 20 miles in?

I'm going camping but am getting scared by some friends who say the winding roads into Big Basin are horrid. How bad is it really? Should I take the Caravel or take a tent?

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.

My recollection is that there are a lot of tight curves but not so tight a trailer couldn't make it. But ... it has been a long time.

Maybe you could check it out in Goggle Earth.
