Shasta Cascade State Parks Overview
California State Parks in the Shasta Cascade include recreation areas, wilderness areas, reservoirs, historic parks & homes and ghost towns. Below you'll find a list of popular CA State Parks and ones we personally recommend from the jagged views of Castle Crags to the popular shoreline of Lake Oroville. Camping in California is a popular activity with most Shasta Cascade campgrounds offering conveniences like flush toilets, running water and firewood.
An entry fee is required at almost all California State Parks. It may be beneficial to purchase a yearly California State Park Pass if planning to make multiple visits to CA State Parks. Several discounts are available including passes for Day Use, Veterans, Handicapped, Surfing, Seniors and more.
