Contact Rangers

Our Rangers are experts on the Parkway, traveling the back trails 365 days a year. They can find you quickly during an emergency and our dispatch staff can send a ranger your way or contact the proper emergency operators fast and efficiently.

Know Your Parkway Rangers

The Ranger Stewardship Program designates which Ranger covers what territory along the American River Parkway.

Before you visit our parklands, write down the 916-875-PARK (7275) dispatch number and carry it with you. (also posted on entrance kiosks and on ranger vehicles.) This dispatch number is staffed from sunrise to two hours after sunset year-round.

You can also report certain crimes that occur in regional parks (such as vehicle theft and vandalism) through the County Sheriff's online reporting website.
