Tons of hiking trails, summit trail was nearby our spot in Juniper, no water available when we went, gates are closed sunset-sunrise, all around a cool spot and its nice how close it is to home. Seems pretty difficult to get a reservation, but its worth it if you can get in

Great campground, stayed 4 nights in December. Highlights include sunrise views over the lake and hills with rolling fog, wild turkeys everywhere, smell of eucalyptus, warm showers, and scores of dedicated staff who genuinely care about this place. Sites are also nicely-spaced apart. (Though this…

Mt. Diablo SP has 3 campgrounds: Live Oak, Juniper, and several first come first serve sites at the junction of South Gate and North Gate roads about 2000ft up the mountain.
Live Oak is the closest to the entrance (and town), and features some cool rock formations to explore, but it's colder,…

It’s a cozy place with boat rentals! Plenty of shade and bathrooms available. Only reason got 4 star is the constant blue-green algae, making the water unavailable for swimming. Regardless of that, you can still fish and go on boat rides.

After time spent here at this oasis in the middle of Eastbay, California, you’ll very much feel like part of this place with its endless trails, fantastically well-kept camping grounds and the warm hospitality given you both by the camp rangers and fellow campers you’ll come across.

What a find! This hidden gem hides behind the vineyard crested mountain range just due south of Livermore. Once you get off the 680/580 highways, you'll be immediately swept into a different wind-strewn, rocky landscape that you'll have to wind around several bends on some decent inclined…

Let's just call a spade a spade here, alright? This campground isn't going to be one that you look back at and fondly recollect a surreal experience in the middle of nature with all of the rustic touches one might come to expect when camping in NorCal. And while the Redwoods and Sequoias will steal…

This site is a nice hidden gem that many won't know even has a campground. While tiny and available only for a small number of campers, if you can get a spot booked well in advance, you'll have the place nearly all to yourself. Located just off of 680, you'll take Bollinger Canyon Road where you'll…

Nice big campsites, well spaced between neighbors. Very open with trees shading most spots Beautiful birds and tons of turkeys, a few deer too. Very dry while we were here. We didn’t go to the lake as this was just a travel stay for us.
Will we just got here but it’s nice so far
Close to the Bay Area and probably one of the better options. It can get crowded over the weekends.
Looks like they recently increased the price for campsites, which makes it easier to find/reserve a site. Not sure that this was a good thing, but it is what it is.
We arrived at around 7pm. The park is very well maintained. Super clean. Nice bathrooms.
Got here on a Sunday night, and even though online they were full, they only had a dozen campers. At least 70 spots here, nice tent areas. Dispersed and lots of views. Bathrooms were ok, showers hot, but they were spread out. No generators allowed. Actually allowed pit fires, which surprised us…
I've been coming here since in jr. High.good hiking exploring is fun fishing too
Located on the west side of the San Rafael/Richmond Bridge, on San Francisco Bay, this park is extremely popular with mountain bikers. There are definitely better mountain biking trails in Marin (Tamarancho Boy Scout Camp, for example) but keep in mind that the bar is very high for mountain biking…
