About CPHA

Projects and Programs

Formed in 1992, the CPHA represents companies and individuals who provide hospitality services under contract with the California Department of Parks and Recreation. Contract service providers commonly referred to as “concessionaires”, have been an integral part of California State Park System beginning with Big Basin State Park in 1913. Concessionaires provide a wide range of hospitality services aimed at helping visitors to enjoy their park experience.

Today there are over 200 concession operations with the 285 California State Parks. In addition to services to visitors, these operations pay the State more than 20 million dollars in rent and maintenance fees each year.
