Capitol Weekly Podcast: Update – California State Parks

With Memorial Day – one of the biggest camping holidays of the year – coming up next Monday, we thought we’d check in on the status of California’s State Parks. We’re joined this week by Gloria Sandoval, Deputy Director of Public Affairs for State Parks who tells us how to get into your favorite park – and offers tips on what to do if your first option is booked.

As pandemic restrictions lift, Californians are returning to Parks in record numbers. California State Parks saw 75 million visitors a year, pre-COVID – based on early numbers, 2021 may shatter that number.

Sandoval, and hosts John Howard and Tim Foster, share suggestions for unique State Park experiences, like camping on a beach, and the only town in California that is also a State Park!  Plus: Who had the Worst Week in California Politics?
