Los Padres Partners with Parks Management Company to Manage Recreation Sites

On November 1, 2016, a new concessionaire Special Use Permit (SUP) was issued to Parks Management Company for campground and recreation site operations.

Under the new SUP, there will be changes to the recreation sites fees. The 18 sites newly added to the concession SUP that currently require an Adventure Pass will now require a $20-35 per night camping fee or $10 day-use fee for parking at trailheads and picnic areas. Interagency Senior and Access pass holders will receive a 50 percent discount on camping fees only - not valid for day use or parking at trailheads.

An annual pass for day-use sites will be available through Parks Management Company for $50 and will be good at any of the concession-managed day-use sites and trailheads on the Los Padres NF. Adventure Passes and Interagency Passes will not be accepted for parking in day use/picnic areas or trailheads. Learn more about the Parks Management Company


Thomas Fire Burn Area Emergency Response Team (BAER) Report 

Thomas Fire BAER Team

The US Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team’s purpose is to assess threats to life, property, and cultural and natural resources from fire-induced changes to the watershed that can cause erosion, sedimentation, flooding, and debris flows. The BAER team has completed their reports which provide a synopsis of BAER findings and the Forest Service’s internal request for implementation funding to treat values at risk on Forest Service lands only. The information generated by the BAER team is crucial for further analysis by other agencies affected by the fire to examine off-Forest values at risk within their jurisdiction.
