The US Forest Service provides several types of publications and maps to the public. The material is available in many forms: brochures, maps, Recreational Opportunity Guides (ROGs), on such subjects as recreation, sightseeing, wilderness, travel management, and vegetation.
The Forest Service publishes a variety of map products to help you plan your next adventure or enjoy your next visit. Select the "Forest Maps" link for a listing of other maps that are available from the forest.
In general, forest visitor and other kinds of maps may also be purchased at most Stanislaus National Forest Offices.
Our publications fall into a few broad categories: administrative, general, recreation and research publications.
