Camp Site details and Activities                          Remarks

Each site comes equipped with a barbecue pit, food
locker and picnic table. Showers(for a small fee) are
also available. Hikers have access to an extensive 14
mile trail system. Shaded picnic areas are available
on a first-come, first-served basis. Group picnic,
group camping and youth camping areas are available
by reservation. Bowmen may practice archery skills at
the beautiful archery range. A one mile self-guided
nature trail winds around the ruins of cattle baron
Henry Miller''s summer home. The park's
amphitheater, available by reservation for weddings
and other special functions, also features live music
and slide shows Memorial Day through Labor Day.
These free shows are provided by park docents every
Saturday at 8 p.m. The park also features a visitor
center where the natural history, geology and cultural
history of the park is highlighted.

Deep in a valley framed by oak-covered hills, with
sailboats and sailboards skimming over its waters, Del
Valle is like an alpine resort in the middle of the
suburbs. The centerpiece of the park is a five-mile
long lake, with all kinds of water-oriented recreation,
surrounded by 4,316 acres of beautiful land for hiking,
horseback riding, and nature study. Del Valle is also
the eastern gateway to the Ohlone Wilderness Trail,
28 miles of scenic backcountry trail. The Del Valle
Family Campground has tent campsites and sites with
water and sewage hookups (no electrical). The sites
are served by centrally located toilet and shower
facilities. Visitors may rent motorboats, patio boats,
peddle boats, canoes, and kayaks at the marina, and
any size boat may be launched at the public boat
Visitors can explore miles of beautiful hiking, riding,
and bicycling trails, which wind through grasslands,
chaparral, and shady eucalyptus groves and stretch
along the shores of Lake Chabot. The East Bay
Skyline National Trail, which traverses 31 miles of
East Bay hills from Richmond to Castro Valley, runs
the length of the park. Chabot is connected to Cull
Canyon Regional Recreation Area by a six-mile
section of the Chabot-to-Garin Regional Trail.
Overlooking Lake Chabot is Chabot Family
Campground, a year-round getaway only minutes
from the city. The campground has RV, trailer, tent,
and walk-in campsites, hot showers, naturalist-led
campfire programs, an amphitheater, and
hiking/fishing access to Lake Chabot. There are
reservable group campsites within the park, too.

On a clear day, from the summit of Mount Diablo
State Park visitors can see 35 of California's 58
counties. It is said that the view is surpassed only by
that of 19,000-foot Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. With
binoculars, Yosemite's Half Dome is even visible from
Mt. Diablo. The park features exce hiking and rock
climbing opportunities. The mountain was formed
when a mass of underlying rock was gradually forced
up through the earth's surface so, unlike other
mountains, older and older rocks are encountered as
you climb t mountain. The mountain was regarded as
sacred to Native Americans.

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park features 15 miles
of hiking and riding trails through a forest that looks
much the same as it did 200 years ago. Zayante
Indians once lived in the area, where they found
shelter, water and game. The park is the home of the
Redwood grove, with a self-guided nature path, and
Douglas fir, madrone, oak and the most unusual
feature of the park, a stand of Ponderosa pine. The
park has a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River.
Anglers fish for steelhead and salmon during the
winter. The Park has a nature center and bookstore.
