Park Fees and Pass Information

Entry Fees apply for all entry into the park. This includes RV Dumping fees, dropping off, picking up, passing through, looking around, etc. If you are paying for passes, renting group camp/picnic or camping then go straight to the campground.
We do not charge hikers or bicyclists who enter the park on foot or by bicycle. There is no parking available outside of the park and it is illegal to park on the side of the road in Riverside county.
RV dumping is available. If you are camping at Lake Perris there is no fee to use the dump station. If you are not camping at Lake Perris then the standard entry fees still apply. $10.00 per vehicle that enters the park.
At Lake Perris the passes pay for themselves and are a great way to save money! Passes can be purchased at the Lake Perris Campground inside the park or online at the State Parks Store.
Annual passes waive the entry fee to California State Parks. These passes are not valid for camping or extra vehicle fees except where noted.
