California State Parks
Here is a guide to California's 278 state parks. Zoom in to choose a park, dig in to its maintenance backlog and crime problems, and upload photos of your own favorite state parks.
California state parks are a public treasure, attracting more than 80 million visitors each year. But parks have not escaped our state's budget crisis. In many parks, hours are more limited, crime is up and maintenance is down. Become part of this project by adding photos from your visits to state parks, sharing with others your favorite picnic spots and hikes and any troubles that cross your path.
