In 2011, Portola Redwoods and Castle Rock State Parks were slated for closure. The Portola and Castle Rock Foundation formed partnerships with Sempervirens Fund, Peninsula Open Space Trust and Save The Redwoods League to sign Donor Agreements to keep both Parks open.

With our partners, we’ve improved both Parks by:

  1. Training State Park Volunteers to walk trails, engage and educate Park visitors.
  2. Building a new campground host site in Portola Redwoods to enhance camper experience.
  3. Eliminating a derelict house and dangerous waste tire dump in Castle Rock.

Future projects include rebuilding the campfire center and Ramada structure at Portola Redwoods and investment in interpretation and volunteer training for both Parks. By becoming a Foundation member, you help restore these Park jewels to enhance visitor experiences.

With your help, we can keep these Parks open and improve them for all Californians.
