California State Parks Honors Military Community with Free Admission to 133 Park Units on Veterans Day, November 11

Sacramento, CA...California State Parks is honoring the service of veterans, as well as active and reserve personnel, by offering free admission to 133 state parks on Veterans Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020.  “We understand this has been a challenging year with the ongoing pandemic and the recent wildfires,” said California State Parks Director Armando Quintero. “California State Parks is proud to be able to honor our military community by thanking them for their service and sacrifices to our country. We hope they can enjoy one of our beautiful parks with their loved ones.”

Participating parks include the California State Railroad Museum and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park along with state vehicular recreation areas such as CarnegieClay PitEastern Kern County Onyx RanchHollister HillsHungry Valley and Oceano Dunes. The park units that honor historic military sites or veterans from the Mexican-American War to the Cold War include:

A full list of the participating park units can be found online at In order to enter the park units for free, a valid military ID or a California driver’s license identifying the individual as a veteran must be shown to park staff.


As a reminder, COVID-19 guidelines are still in effect at all state park units. Please be sure to plan ahead by visiting the individual webpages of the park unit, especially for museums and some state historic parks as there is a 25% visitor capacity limit. For detailed information on how to recreate responsibility during the pandemic, please visit For tips on how to recreate responsibly in the outdoors, please visit


Assembly Bill 150 (Olsen), signed by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. in 2013, authorized California State Parks to offer veterans, active duty and reserve military personnel from the United States Armed Forces and the National Guard of any state a reduced fee or free day use at participating state parks.




Event occurs on 11/11/2020 from All Day to .

    The admission fee goes to upkeep and local park needs. People pay taxes in Anaheim too but think nothing of paying $125 for JUST admission into Disneyland! Or buying the latest i-phone every time one comes out, but then expect stat parks to be free???

      AND, one day free military admission is a great gesture as well as an appropriate way to say "thank you".

          Biden thinks he is holding a rally at Half Dome running for city council in a small town in Guam.
