Camping Reservation Information
Feel the breeze through the pines, smell an aromatic campfire, hear the waves gently lap the shoreline. It's just like when you were a kid! Whether it's near the beach, alongside a mighty redwood, or by a shimmering lake - this is life the way it should be. This is camping at California State Parks!
