California State Parks with Scuba Diving

California's State Parks system isn't just about visiting parks, beaches, mountains and deserts. That is the largest part of the attraction experience, but not all to it. You can also visit California State Parks with museums. These centers provide historical information, cultural info, government, and even the lives of rich & famous such as the Hearst Castle tours. Get out and see these fantastic state parks and you'll be amazed at a whole world contained within California's museums located at its state parks.

Pictured above is actually a photo from California's National Marine Sanctuary at Channel Islands, some 20 miles offshore of Ventura. It is not actually within the State Parks system, but is maintained by federal protection and operation.
