Not available on Thursdays but still want to bring your class to the park? Then you may be interested in a self-guided in-person field trip! These field trips are facilitated independently by K-12 educators, chaperones, and/or youth program leaders without the support of California State Park staff. Self-guided field trips can be up to 3 hours and may be available depending on facility availability and park services. To inquire about a self guided field trip opportunity please fill out and turn in the School Group Reservation Request Form to at least 15 days in advance of the proposed date of your visit to allow preparation and scheduling by park personnel.
