Hours of Operation
The Plumas Eureka State Park Association or PESPA, was established in 1977 to support the interpretive and educational programs at Plumas-Eureka State Park.
Funding for PESPA comes from donations, fundraising activities, museum sales and our popular membership program.
Using the funds raised through these activities, PESPA sponsors the hiring of summer interpreters who create and present programs such as the Junior Ranger Program, campfire programs, and interpretive hikes at the Park. PESPA also provides needed funds to purchase materials and equipment for these programs.
PESPA currently has more than 300 members from throughout the United States. About 45 of our members are approved California State Park Docent/volunteers who are utilized in many areas of the park such as in the Museum, Blacksmith Shop, Assay Office, Moriarity House and park hikes.
Many of the activities visitors enjoy at Plumas-Eureka State Park are provided through the efforts of PESPA. Each year in July, PESPA sponsors Gold Discovery Days, a free weekend event full of activities and demonstrations that highlight the Park’s early California gold-rush history. Later in the season, the Park’s museum is the site of PESPA’s annual Dinner in the Park, a lively evening of dinner and entertainment.
We invite you to enjoy the Plumas-Eureka State Park and to consider becoming a member of PESPA. Members enjoy regular updates on park activities while helping to support and preserve our wonderful park.
