San Francisco Bay Area California State Parks


California's State Parks system contains close to 300 parks with beaches, forests, mountains and deserts included in the inventory, as well as over one million artifacts in a collection of items. To say that state parks operations are huge would be an understatement at best. The system divides parks into regions and types of park attractions--off road vehicles, beaches, parks, camping, etc.
