California State Parks announced on Thursday May 14 that they would be re-opening, with some restrictions, Friday May 15th. 

Locally, that means popular parks like Beales Point, Granite Bay, Negro Bar and the Auburn Recreation area. It also includes – great news for fisherman – the reopening of launch ramps on Folsom Lake at Granite Bay, Folsom Point and Brown’s Ravine.

Many park amenities will still be closed, including any concessions stands. Camping is also still is not allowed, but bathrooms will be open! There has been recent evidence that rates of catching Covid-19 while outdoors are significantly less than being indoors. Of course, you still want to practice- and parks officials are strongly encouraging-  good social distancing. 

did somebody say boat ramps are back open??
