National Parks

California Adventure District is home to four national parks and recreation areas, Redwood National Forest on the Pacific Coast, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, and Lava Beds National Monument.  Some are more “famous” than others but each one is magnificent in its own unique way, you can ascend 10,463 ft to the peak of Mt. Lassen and descend underground in deep caves at the Lava Beds National Monument, you can see the world’s tallest trees and touch the ocean at Redwood National Forest, and experience numerous waterfalls and lake activities at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.

Enjoy them all!
