We visit Del Valle a few times a week. Nice hills that keep you in shape. At times the lake looks like you are in Scotland.

This park is located near Livermore and it's about an hour drive from the most of the Bay area (given mild traffic), but it feels like you're hundred miles away. The lake is enclosed between mountain ridges, so you can't see the towns, can't hear them, can't see their lights. BTW, no cell reception either. All you have and rugged... More

This is a really fun place to go in the summer. We have enjoyed numerous picnics here. We enjoy going swimming in the lake; there are beach areas with picnic tables nearby. We have also rented a boat and gone fishing; although we did not have luck catching fish, we did have fun going out on the boat. We have... More

It's only 22 miles from San Jose but it feels like you are in a middle of nowhere driving there. $6 entrance fee and NO IN and OUT privileges. NO CELL RECEPTION so make sure you have a meeting place or have thinks planned ahead of time if you are in a big group. There are 2 areas for swimming.... More

This park is remote for the bay Area as you must drive south into the hills behind Livermore to get here. The Lake is good for fishing sometimes and the campground is small, but good for Scouts etc...If you are taking the kids on a first-ever camping trip...start here and they will never want to go camping again...lol I don't...

A nice place in a tri valley area where you will pass some nice vineyards along the way heading to the park. A nice drive of 1 1/2 hours from SF. The parking fee for the park is $6 no in & out privilege. They accept visa, debit and mastercard as well as cash. I suggest carry cash as I... More

We explored the northern part of this park on a holiday morning. The main trail is wide and well maintained. It's a bit steep at the beginning and mostly in the open, so wear sturdy shoes and carry water. There are lots of narrow side trails to explore, some with more shade and some that are quite steep. Take these... More

I love this location as you feel as though you've traveled far, but it's a local spot. When the lake levels are up and it's not too hot, this is a great place to go. For hiking, I recommend the trail on the back side of the lake near the dam. It's off of Arroyo Rd past Wente Winery. It's... More

This is a very nice campground that is close to home. The sites are well spaced and secluded. They have just added full hook ups. It's a nice campground to visit in the winter. Summer is extremely hard to get in on the weekends so we don't bother trying. They use the reserve America reservation system which seems to always... More
