As of this writing, many parks and campgrounds are open, including Big Basin Redwoods State Park, Seacliff State Beach Campground, New Brighton State Beach, and many others. There is growing consensus that transmission risks are lower outdoors than inside. Hartford HealthCare rated camping as one of the lowest risk activities. However, due to the constant changing of openings and closings of parks, you will need to go online or contact the specific campground you plan to visit to find out if it is open to camping and/or hiking before you go.
And if you do go, go safe and be safe! Maintain proper social distancing, wear masks when in the company of others outside of your immediate family and wash your hands frequently.
The California State Parks has put out the following information:
The operations of the park system have been modified to provide an outdoor experience that reduces the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and modifications at each park may vary. Consequently, the public is advised to plan ahead—check the webpage of their local outdoor destination before leaving home to find out if it is open, what new guidelines are in effect and if parking is available.
