“The Home of Pio Pico”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

I first heard about Pio Pico State Park whilst watching California's Gold, so last sunday after church I took my wife and son. The place was very quiet and nearly empty, it was a nice walk around the park we toured the inside of the home, which has wheel chair/baby stroller access this was good because my son was asleep in his stroller.
We walked around the grounds for approx 40 minutes and just enjoyed a nice southern california day with a little history.
There is no charge to visit but there is a donation box inside Pio's home.
Parking was out front and free, on our visit there were only 4 cars in the parking lot so plenty of parking.
Bring your picnic or lunch, I wouldn't reccommend venturing out down the street as the surroundings is a bit ghetto.
The park ranger was polite and restrooms looked up to date and clean.
