California State Parks
Some of the state parks have maps or brochures (with maps) that you can download.
You can do a search for the park you're interested in at California State Parks.
California National Parks

Many of the maps are area maps, which show a lot of detail over a large area. They'll print on standard paper, but on some maps the print will be small and difficult to read. However, even the small print is very readable if you use good quality paper.
