Considered the recreational crown jewel of the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Creek State Park has over 8,000 acres of rolling tallgrass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks. It's no wonder many call it "The Yosemite of Southern California".
The park, formerly owned by 20th Century Fox Studios, opened in 1976 and has welcomed millions of visitors since. The stunning terrain here that has been seen all over the world in movies and television awaits you. Come hike, ride, climb and explore L.A.'s most spectacular park!

We're celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original "Planet of the Apes" that was shot primarily on the former Fox Ranch, now Malibu Creek State Park. The famous scene here was filmed on the flat pad above the rock climbing wall near the Rock Pool. Go visit!
Malibu Creek State Park was badly damaged in a November 2018 wildfire, but recovery has begun. Please tread lightly and exercise caution when visiting.
