Park Alert

May 20, 2020 - Marshall Gold Discovery SHP is increasing access to the park by opening parking lots and removing traffic cones throughout the park.


California State Parks is working with locals on a phased and regionally-driven approach to increase access to state park units only where compliance with state and local public health ordinances can be achieved.


Visitors should expect a different state park experience than they are used to. Californians must continue to stay local, practice physical distancing, avoid congregating with others outside their immediate household and abide by new visitor guidelines State Parks has implemented across the state park system to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
