This park is popular year-round. In the summer, enjoy hiking in the Sierra along Galena, Jones and White's Creeks; in the winter visit the park for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.

Nestled in a forested area on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada, Galena Creek Park is seven miles up the Mt. Rose Highway from the intersection with U.S. 395. Galena Creek flows through the park creating separate north and south portions of the park. Campfire programs, ranger-led hikes, and exhibits in the Galena Creek Visitor's Center add to the diversity of the park. The park offers fishing at Marilyn's Pond and reservable facilities like the Galena Fish Hatchery and an outdoor education camp called Camp We Ch Me. Reservable building and picnic pavilions.
