AB 618 — State parks: reservations: discounts by Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan | Cal Parks

Our Position



Signed by Governor

Would make the California State Park camping reservation system more equitable by issuing a refund (minus the reservation fee) for reservations canceled seven calendar days before the start date. Cancellations made six days or fewer will forfeit the cost of one night (including the reservation fee). The bill will also implement a lottery for campsites at up to five of the most popular parks.

Position Statement

Reserving a campsite at popular state parks can be a highly competitive endeavor. We support efforts to ensure that the state’s campsite reservation system is fair and equitable.
