State Park System Statistics Monitoring

Description / purpose

California monitors number of "use-days" by individual parks Statewide. Each year the Department publishes California State Park System Statistical Report, which contains data that collectively describe and measure the California State Park System. This data covers the most recent fiscal year, July 1 through June 30. This annual report provides information on the system as it existed and was operated during that 12-month period. Among this data are the identity of the system's official set of classified units and major unclassified properties, their acreage, their visitor attendance, the number of selected visitor use facilities, the revenues generated by the system, the system's operating costs, and levels of staffing used to maintain the system. In addition, as of the 2014-15 Statistical Report, the publication now includes Park Unit Costing information, which offers an increased level of fiscal information that allows for a greater understanding of how the Departmental funding is allocated amongst the various state park units in support of the State Park's System.
