Drought Prompts Closure of Portola Redwoods State Park Campgrounds


Share this article

California State Parks has temporarily shut down campground facilities at Portola Redwoods State Park due to drought resulting in reduced water flows in Peters Creek–the park’s primary water source.

According to the website, the campground facilities will be closed from August 5 and will remain closed until the end of the camping season. Day use areas will remain accessible under normal capacities.

“Due to low water levels and the continuing extraordinary drought, Portola Redwoods State Park will be unable to continue service to the public for overnight use,” the post reads.

Camping facilities that will be closed throughout the camping season include reservations, group, and drop-in sites. Affected reservation holders will be notified by the reservation system via email and will be given a refund.

According to the California Department of Parks and Recreation’s website, the road leading to the park’s 2,800 acres drops from a ridgetop into a deeply shaded redwood forest, offering a tranquil getaway from the suburban bustle of nearby Silicon Valley and the South Bay Area. 

The park features a 55-site family campground, four group campsites, and a trail camp for backpackers.
