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

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,…

Del Valle: Of The Valley

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.

  • Ensure you bring a bottle or two of water here for this hike
  • Just getting up here will take some effort - but the view is the great reward
  • Fantastic views from atop of the Mount Diablo range where you can see for miles

Campground Cul-de-Sac

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…

  • From the parking lot, you'll walk 100 paces to come to this gate, push and enter
  • Looking back at the parking lot (where there's a solid 70 or so parking spots) - careful, on the weekend, this place gets crowded!
  • Keep this gate shut, otherwise we'll have cows on the highway!

Occasionally crowded, but great get away for the Bay Area

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.

Overall, the…

Juniper, secluded site

It was a great time! Stayed at site 7, well separated from everyone else. Room to set up two average sized tents. Rock ground, not very soft. Very hot outside, cooled down at night enough to make sleeping comfortable. Drove up to the peak at 7am before it opened to the public and we had the whole…

Juniper is the Name

I’ve been coming to this place for years. This is literally the best place to see a sunset of “The Bay”. There are a lot of trails for hiking. However the draw back to this place is the amount of cyclists on the narrow and worn out pavement that we call roads. If you are queasy about motion,…

Juniper Campground: hiked in

We hiked up to Juniper campground from the Clayton side. The sites in the teens have less overhead shade but more privacy than those of higher numbers. The sites closest to the driving road/entrance/overlook will have the potential to be downwind of the bathroom, unfortunately.

The campground…

Local weekend getaway

Well kept, bathrooms tidy and stocked. It's a decent place for locals looking to get a break from routine but not intended to be a final destination.

-It takes ~30-45 minutes to drive from the bottom of the mountain to Juniper Campground depending on the amount of traffic on the mountain.

Nice Campsites, Hot & Buggy

We stayed in Sites 78 & 80, which were enormous, and could’ve easily fit 20-30 people, not the 8 people the sites were limited too. Careful though, many sites, including these, were mostly exposed with very little shade. Camping Labor Day weekend, temps were in the low 90s, and there were LOTS…

Great and close to home

I've camped many times here. I hiked in and car camped. Fun to see the wildlife and nature all around. Can get hot during summer but close to the lake to swim and paddle board.

Very impressed!

Very happy with our first camping experience at Del Valle. Our campsite (#139) could have used some shade, but we had plenty of space and the views were awesome. Almost every site was occupied, but luckily everyone respected the quiet hours. The facilities were clean and well maintained. We didn’t…

Hot Hot

We went during the summer and it was very hot. The camp ground did not have much shade. We ended up taking a long hike around 4-5 pm when it started to cool food down. We saw a mix of wildlife. Deer, hawks, wild turkeys. We saw an amazing sunset too.

Great campsite for families and friends

We’ve camped a few times at Del Valle and will be back again this summer. Our experiences have all been positive. Our first time was by the main gate (in the 60s) and it was nice site with good shade. The last time was site 81, which had much less shade but a location we preferred. The bathrooms…
