NEVADA CITY, Calif. May 5, 2017 – Starting Saturday May 27, 2017 thru September 4, 2017 (peak season), vehicle parking fees will increase to $10 per vehicle at the South Yuba River State Park Bridgeport river crossing and Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park. This fee is consistent with the other park units in the Sierra District.

Vehicle parking fees will be $5 per vehicle from September 5, 2017 – May 25, 2018 at both park locations.

Parking fees were introduced to the South Yuba River State Park in 2012. Since then there has been a significant increase in visitor attendance at both South Yuba River State Park and Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park.  The increase in fees will assist California State Parks in providing better service to our visitors and help State Parks protect our State’s natural and cultural resources.
