Did you know California State Parks is a Leader in Educating the people of California?
How can we engage you, and connect you to your parks history?


State Parks is developing a plan to better connect visitors to Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area and Pismo State Beach through improved park experiences. These would include exhibits, interpretive panels, and directional signs within camping and recreation areas, and on park trails and boardwalks.

We are seeking your input for these projects, as well as your feedback on our educational programs and potential program topics you would like to see offered.
