Sierra Nevada State Parks Overview
California State Parks in the Sierra Nevada include parks, giant sequoia trees, plant and wildlife reserves, 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 Sugar Pine Point along the shores of Lake Tahoe to the Giant Sequoias of Calaveras Big Trees. Camping in California is a popular activity with most Sierra Nevada campgrounds offering conveniences like RV parks, 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.
