  • A photographer's dream! So much stuff to see and love. What lucky people that live here.
  • Lots of history, the volunteers at the state park are very knowledgeable. Great place to visit and explore!
  • The State Rangers were very helpful at the park store and suggested my family go on the tour of the entire place.Tickets were not expensive. Parking outside the park is recommended. Restrooms are available. As you enter San Juan Bautista you will see restaurants, and stores where you can pick purchase souvenirs also.The mission church also has a store.
