Excluding the current drought a nice place to visit, especially with kids. Swimming lake where you can rent boats, kayaks and fishing gear. Overnight camping. Usually clean and safe. Weekend with good weather get very busy and much more crowded. Dogs on leashes are allowed, summer time lifeguards for swim areas.

We recently just discovered Del Valle and I have no idea what took us so long. It is a great place to let the dog run loose and get in some hiking. I also have a paddle board that I like to take out and it is a great place to launch and cruise around. There are multiple trails and... More

LOTS of off leash walking past the marina and if your dog likes to swim this place is great. The water is down a little at the moment but still great for off leash walking and swimming.

I went fishing here for the first time last weekend. The park is close to most places in the SF Bay Area Access is easy and the boat rental clean and staffed by helpful folks. There are a great variety of fish in the lake including trout, catfish and stripes to name a few.

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...
