When I first transferred to the Santa Monica Mountains, near Los Angeles, California, it was Malibu Creek State Park. I was the Supervising Ranger for the then 7,000 acre state park. Nestled in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains, it was a busy weekend park for equestrians, hikers and some mountain biking.

In the interior of the park there was one particular destination, the old M.A.S.H site. The M.A.S.H site was abandoned after a wildfire in 1982. Most of the scene props were either destroyed in the wildfire or remove when it was transferred over to California State Parks.

On February 23, 2008,  to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the T.V show , California State Parks authorized some restoration work of the site. Even the old road to the helipad was restored.

Malibu Creek State Park remains a special jewel of nature and it continues to provide recreational opportunities for visitors when visiting in the Santa Monica Mountains.
