If you boat a fair amount on the South Fork American and/or like to visit State Parks, you may want to consider obtaining a State Park "Poppy" Pass. They are only $90/season and are good at 97 State Park Units, including Marshall Gold and Folsom Lake (Salmon Falls). They are available for a 12 month period from when first purchased. They may be purchased at most State Park unit headquarter offices including Auburn SRA and Marshall Gold SHP. The link for more information about the passes is:
