Open California State Parks

Open California State Parks

Here’s a complete list of California State Parks now open to the public:

State officials quietly reopened the parking lots to 145 California State Parks following a more than 2-month closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This means that 253 of the 280 state parks in California are now open to the public, with parking lots accommodating 50 percent of their usual traffic.

There was no Gavin Newsom press conference or social media announcement, but visitors to the parks were greeted with parking space this week as part of California’s relaxing of quarantine rules. Many of the park’s still don’t have open campgrounds or visitors centers, and visitors are encouraged to visit to see exactly what’s open at each park.

“We are still telling people to stay close to home,” said Gloria Sandoval, deputy director of California’s state parks department. “It’s important for everybody to do their part to help mitigate the spread of the virus.”
