American River Middle Fork
California State Parks is collaborating with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to prepare a joint General Plan/Resource Management Plan for the Auburn State Recreation Area (SRA). California State Parks manages Auburn SRA through a contract with Reclamation. Auburn SRA is comprised of forty miles of river canyon along the North and Middle Forks of the American River.

The General Plan/Resource Management Plan will define a long term vision for the park unit, will provide guidelines for the protection and management of natural and cultural resources, will determine the use and management of the many recreation activities which occur in the SRA and will identify any additional facility improvements. An Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement will be prepared as part of this project.

The GP/RMP is a programmatic document that will outline broad goals and guidelines for management of Auburn SRA and will provide the basis for developing future focused management plans, specific project plans, and other proposals which implement the GP/RMP goals. However, the GP/RMP will not define detailed methods, plans or designs for fulfilling these goals.

The planning process will provide many opportunities for public involvement. Links to newsletters and other planning documents will be posted below on this webpage as they are available.

At the request of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), the planning process to develop a new General Plan and Resource Management Plan (GP/IRMP) for Auburn State Recreation Area (SRA) was suspended between 2010 and 2015. With approval of a new service contract, the GP/RMP is again being pursued.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive notification of future workshops and planning updates, please contact Project Lead Cheryl Essex at plan.general@parks.ca.gov or 916-445-8814.
