Pacheco State Park
South of Pacheco Pass, California

This is a relatively new park and only about a third of it is currently open to the public. It was created from part of the vast Mexican land grant El Rancho de San Luis Gonzaga, and was donated to the state by Paula Fatjo, the great-great-granddaughter of the original grantee. Much of the rest of the land grant is now flooded by San Luis Reservoir or included in the surrounding San Luis Recreation Area.
