Following public release of the Auburn State Recreation Area (ASRA) Preliminary General Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in July 2019, California State Parks staff made changes to the General Plan. The proposed changes, along with responses to comments received on the Draft EIR, were published in June 2020 in a Final EIR in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Preliminary General Plan, Draft EIR, and Final EIR
are available for review.
The proposed General Plan revisions include a reduction in the total number of new campsites allowed in ASRA from 224 sites (220 individual sites and four group sites) to 142 sites (135 individual site and seven group sites). Other changes describe the comprehensive planning process that would occur prior to the development of any new or expanded facilities; require a site-specific assessment to determine if campfires would be allowed at individual new campsites; and identify best practices for the protection of Tribal Cultural Resources that would be implemented in coordination with California Native American Tribal groups
