Description

With 150 campsites (21 of which directly hook up to water & sewage), Del Valle Regional Campground is no joke. The site’s proximity to the lake is undoubtedly a plus, but make sure that you’re OK with making some new friends, as the sites are close proximity and there is not much in the case of trees for privacy. Del Valle is partially known to be somewhat of a party once the sun sets, but rangers are pretty good about shutting things down at 10 p.m. Definitely make sure to book your campsite in advance, as they go incredibly quickly during the summer season.

This is definitely a family-oriented campsite. Lost of kids running around during the day. If you're a light sleeper, I'd recommend a set of earplugs or headphones, otherwise you might hear kids crying or partying from nearby camp sites into the night.

Lake Del Valle is great for kayaking or SUPing, or you can kayak in to some of the sites for overnight camping.

Potable water available in conveniently located spigots along the family campground road, among the sites. Dogs on leash allowed for a fee. Fire pits are provided - there may be fire restrictions at times, but normally you'll enjoy having a campfire. September weekends and weekdays are generally not fully booked and not totally empty, either.

Really lovely spot for an easy getaway. I'm a pretty experienced backpacker, but needed a place close to San Francisco to break a friend into car camping. This was the perfect spot for it. It was active and I think fully booked, but not as crazy as I expected. Lots of kids around, so get earplugs if you sleep light. The sites are large and spacious, so even if you max out with 8 folks to a site you should be fine. Really great facilities, the fire pits are top notch. The reservoir was a little lame, the trails are generally ok. Nothing epic, but generally really pleasant. Probably where I'd take kids to for their first camping trip to break them into the outdoors.

Dog friendly! The space is open and lots of hiking groups go through the camp grounds so you'll see lots of other people throughout the day, it's not a secluded campsite. The lake nearby is great for paddle boarding and a cold swim.
