Martial Cottle Park State Recreation Area

Update (June 8, 2021): Whether an experienced outdoor enthusiast or a new one, park visitors must continue to recreate responsibly in the outdoors as the pandemic is far from over.

COVID-19 Guidelines

Recreate Responsibly
Protect yourself, family, friends and your community from COVID-19 by following these prevention measures while recreating in California’s State Park System:

  • Know Before You Go – Prior to leaving home, check the status of the park unit you want to visit to find out what restrictions and guidelines are in place. Have a back-up plan in case your destination is crowded. Stay home if you are sick.
  • Plan Ahead – Some restrooms will be temporarily closed to keep up with cleaning schedules. Bring soap/hand sanitizer.
  • Play It Safe – Find out what precautions you should take when exploring the outdoors, especially if this is your first time visiting the State Park System. Learn more at parks.ca.gov/SafetyTips.
  • Keep Your Distance – Avoid crowds. If there are too many people at a park or beach, please visit on a different day.
  • Wear a Mask – State Parks continues to follow guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health:
    • Everyone: In indoor settings, such as museums and visitor centers, face coverings are required regardless of vaccination status.
    • Fully Vaccinated Persons: Face coverings are not required outdoors except when attending crowded outdoor events.
    • Unvaccinated Persons: Face coverings are required outdoors any time physical distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Leave No Trace – Leave areas better than how you found them by staying on designated trails and packing out all trash. Do not disturb wildlife or plants.

Although law enforcement entities have the authority to issue citations, the expectation is that the public is responsible for adhering to the advice of public health officials, visitor guidelines and closures.
