To All, we wanted to reach out to keep you up-to-date on the recent soft closures in state parks. At this time, many parks are still open, and we encourage people to be safe when visiting. As a reminder, we have put together a list of how to navigate outdoor spaces in the time of COVID-19.

Here’s the latest on state parks:

  • High public-use indoor facilities �  including museums, visitor centers, and cafés � have been closed until further notice.
  • All campgrounds across the state have been closed until further notice. All current reservation holders affected by the temporary closures have received a notification from ReserveCalifornia regarding their cancellation and refunds will be provided.
This information is subject to change, and we will continue to provide updates on park closures and ways to experience your state parks safely.
Stay healthy and safe,

California State Parks Foundation

    Thank you Chuck for all your SMBAS notifications. They are a lifeline to nature and the lagoon. Much appreciated though I haven’t been there for months. Sincerely Sylvia Nuttall
