Gave this to a friend in Alabama who will be vacationing this year at many of the state and national parks in CA. He said the book offers some great insight and ideas.
This book was a huge help in planning our first trip to California. I love to hike and wanted a better description of each park than the California State Parks website offered. This book delivered, we had a fantastic time and knew exactly what each park had to offer. It was our first time seeing the Redwood trees (totally awesome) and knew in advance which parks had the tallest trees, and gave background information on each park as well. This is a must have for anyone wishing to visit the State parks (state beaches as well).
Super out-of-date.

Many parks are closed now.
Just what I needed.
I find this book very useful to acquire information before visiting California parks...
Doesn't list all the parks as hoped
Very info packed book on California parks. Useful in choosing places to go and camp. Helps with planning a vacation for me and my partner.
Great coverage of California State Parks.
