It used to be $7, then it was $10 and as of yesterday, parking at Malibu Creek State Park is $12. The same price adjustment can be found at Malibu Lagoon and Leo Carillo thanks to nearly $39 million in state budget cuts that are forcing state park officials to look at every avenue for revenue. Some parks are expected to close, though many could be saved through partnerships with communities and businesses.

Prices also increased from $5 to $8 at Point Mugu and Robert Meyer Memorial State Beach. At Topanga, parking went up to $10 from $8. Pio Pico saw the smallest increase of $2 to $3.
