Welcome to
Coastside State Parks Association

The Coastside State Parks Association (CSPA) supports fifteen California State Parks along 36 miles of San Mateo County coastline from Gray Whale Cove State Beach in Montara in the north to Año Nuevo State Park in Pescadero to the south. In partnership with California State Parks, CSPA raises funds to support vital education and interpretation programs and projects.

This map shows the State Parks and Beaches that we support.  To learn more about these State Parks and Beaches, scroll down through this list.
