Park Units with Increased Access (Limited Parking)
California State Parks is working with locals on a phased and regionally driven approach to increase access to park units only where compliance with state and local public health ordinances has been achieved. To date, limited public parking is available at 185 park units and 16 park units remain temporarily fully closed. Some campgrounds have started to reopen with modifications using this phased and regionally driven approach.
During these unprecedented times, State Parks will continue to adapt its operations across the system to comply with state and local public health orders to mitigate the spread of the virus. It is a dynamic situation across the state.
On this webpage, you will find a list of park units that have limited public parking. Additional units will be added with little advance notice.
As a reminder -- Governor Newsom’s Stay-at-Home Order asks Californians to stay close to home, maintain physical distancing and avoid congregating with others outside their immediate household. The operations of the park system have been modified to provide an outdoor experience that reduces the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and modifications at each park may vary. Consequently, the public is advised to plan ahead—check the webpage of their local outdoor destination before leaving home to find out if it is open, what new guidelines are in effect and if parking is available.
