California State Parks has a series of district-specific policies.
Unfortunately, these policies are not readily available to the public. My multiple requests were stymied at every turn.
Finally, a request under California Public Records Act (CPRA) and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in Sacramento finally produced results.
That took many months and many missed deadlines (even though State Parks set its own deadlines!)
Here's the policy for the Mendocino area parks as provided in early 2017. If you have copies of any of the other policies, please share them with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This policy was also posted to a community website, most likely by a State Parks employee, but this has officially been removed (November 2016). You can still see it at
