Updated: Wednesday, January 27, 2021

On Monday, January 25, Governor Newsom lifted the regional COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in California because of dropping rates of coronavirus infections. This means California will revert back to the four-tiered, color-coded system that assigns local risk levels based on case numbers and rates of positive test results for coronavirus infections. Restaurants with outdoor dining, hotels, campgrounds, and many other business can now reopen. Below is a list of national parks, campgrounds, and more, and their reopening status.

Is in state travel allowed in California?

Yes, the California Department of Public Health issued a travel advisory recommending that Californians avoid nonessential travel anywhere beyond 120 miles of their home. The travel advisory hasn’t been updated after the stay at home order was lifted as of Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

Can I travel into California from another state?

Yes, but the travel advisory from the California Department of Public Heath discourages nonessential travel from other states or countries. The advisory asks that everyone arriving in California from out of state quarantine for 10 days after arrival—essential workers are exempt. The travel advisory hasn’t been updated after the stay at home order was lifted as of Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

California State Parks

As of Friday, January 29, 2021, California Department of Parks and Recreation has begun its plans to reopen the state park’s campgrounds. Most state parks are still open for day use with limited facilities available. Here is a complete list of temporarily closed parks and the California Department of Parks and Recreation COVID-19 alerts page.

California National Forests

Developed campgrounds within the national forests remain closed as of Wednesday, January 27, 2021. Dispersed camping is allowed, but be sure to avoid areas or roads closed for the winter season or due to wildfire damage. Check the individual national forest’s website frequently for changing conditions and alerts.

Private Campgrounds: Search by County

Smaller, privately owned campgrounds have the flexibility to reopen depending on the status of the county they are located in (and some might reopen faster than state or federal campgrounds). To search the status of the county and if campgrounds are allowed to reopen in that county, enter the county and “campgrounds” as the activity here. Be sure to call the private campground you plan to visit at least few days prior to ensure they are still open. Reservations could be needed, so call as far in advance as you can.

Current conditions are parks, campgrounds, and other road trip attractions are always changing. Be sure to double check the weather, road conditions, and COVID-19 closures prior to hitting the road. Make a back up plan just in case.

Book a campervan rental with Escape Campervans and have the peace of mind that comes with a flexible cancellation policy and no change fees.
