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, snowshoeing and sledding.
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, fishing at Marilyns Pond and exhibits in the Galena Creek Visitor's Center add to the diversity of the park.
Reservable facilities include the Galena Fish Hatchery, an outdoor education lodge called Camp We Ch Me, the Bearmat Group Picnic Area and the Manzanita Group Picnic Area. Call Park Reservations at (775) 823-6501 for building and picnic pavilion reservations.
