Only because it's close to downtown SF

That's the only reason why we're here. Reservation making is a pain since it's all via email/ online. Spaces for rvs are unpaved and additional cars are on cement. Hookups are pretty fast away and needed my sewer extention.

There are full time residents along with short term. If you have slide…

Simple and Basic

A 5 mile hike from the Bear Valley Trailhead leading to a small campground with 12 sites.  We stayed at #9.  Potable water and vault toilets are available, with each site also having a picnic table, charcoal barbecues and bear boxes.  Wood fires are not permitted.  A stream runs beside the…

Nice spot nearby

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

Winter Rains

The camp sites were gravel on dirt, which became muddy with large puddles in the December rains. They are simple back-ins with water and electricity and no physical barriers demarcating one site from the next aside from the small concrete utilities pad. The staff were super friendly, and they…

Great overnight spot

Drove past the gps directions, a lot of pull offs along the road. Some safer than others. Didn’t have any issues staying for the night.

Large and well-maintained with excellent nearby hiking

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…

Beautiful, clean, easily-accessed new Southeast Bay campground

This campground opened in August 2021, so the facilities are still brand-spanking new. They haven't yet installed the washer/dryer and haven't yet locked in a vendor to operate the camp store, but I'm told those things are coming.

What they do have are scores of hookup sites for $60 / night…

3 campgrounds, Juniper the best, but sunset lock-in

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,…

DONT DO YOUR LAUNDRY THERE

Candlestick RV Park is expensive, extremely narrow - obviously people don't go there for the view or the nice camping experience but because it's closest to SF - so go there if you want to explore the beautiful city: Metro is 15 Min. walk an takes you downtown. But please don't do your laundry…

Illegal to sleep overnight

It's illegal to sleep overnight on HWY 1 and you're at a higher risk of getting a ticket.

Camping w/ Family

An excellent place to camp that's just minutes away from San Francisco. Trails are well kept and maintained.

Way better than the bad reviews say!

If you want a great little place with quick easy access to San Francisco that has a great view of the ocean this place is great! And affordable! It's a little extra on a Thousand Trails membership... but the area is just so crazy expensive I can understand the need. The staff was welcoming on the…
