We welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in Castle Crags State Park.  Here you will be introduced not only to our spectacular park, but also to McArthur~Burney Falls Memorial State Park and Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park.  We will talk about what to do while visiting or staying at the park, nearby attractions, and park news and events.  We'll discuss the McArthur-Burney Falls Interpretive Association and Friends of the Crags, and we will provide you with links to other parks, similar organizations and area attractions.  Come and visit with us; pull up a rock and squat awhile and we’ll enjoy the view together.

The Department of Parks and Recreation has announced that all campgrounds will be closed,  as well as the closure of  visitor centers and museums already announced..  Hiking and day use still permitted, HOWEVER, all vehicle access to all state parks is discontinued effective today.   Also, the Pacific Crest Trail Association has issued an advisory asking everyone to stay off the PCT. 

Hope you are all well and staying safe.  (March 29, 2020)
