State Parks and Beaches on the Peninsula’s dramatic Pacific Coast attract over 2 million annual visitors seeking recreation and inspiration. Camping, hiking to explore beaches, marshes, and redwood forests, tide pooling, whale watching, and learning about history along the coast are just some of the activities visitors enjoy.

These parks encompass areas of remarkable natural beauty, habitat for endangered and protected species, and sites of historical significance to Native and early California cultures. Sacramento chronically underfunds State Parks. Your local beaches and parks need your help.

Coastside State Parks Association (CSPA) is the official nonprofit fundraising partner for 15 state parks and beaches on the coast of San Mateo County. By giving to CSPA, you will help fund programs and projects to:

  • improve park facilities
  • train volunteer docents
  • install interpretive exhibits and displays
  • restore natural habitats
  • improve recreational access

Coastside State Parks Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and has been a California State Parks Cooperating Association since its incorporation in 1990.
