With 75 different campsites available at the Anthony Chabot campground, each with fire pits, charcoal grills and picnic tables, family camping has never been so convenient. Everyone will love a weekend at the lake, and if you decide to have a family barbecue, there is a Safeway nearby in case you forget the hot dog buns! Nestled among tall eucalyptus trees, the flat terrain is perfect for pitching a tent or staying in a trailer or RV. Twelve sites are for trailers/RVs with full hook-ups, and ten are walk-in sites, so bring the entire family and the dogs!

This is a beautiful campground in the hills outside of Oakland and in the eucalyptus forest. There are mountain biking trails and it's about 20 minutes drive to the nearest BART station if you want to head into the city. Beware of poison oak and, in the rainy season, ticks (especially if you have pets). There are quirky rules about reserving a site. You either have to do it several days in advance or one day at a time once you're there. Regardless, it's a lovely area and super clean campground with both tent sites and full RV hook up sites.

There has been some recent (2016) closures on certain sites, if you are a frequent visitor and have a favorite spot like my husband and I, you may want to check the map to see if your beloved spot is still available. This is a beautiful place to camp locally in the bay area. Great hiking and especially great for little ones. In the summer months they even have lessons/ activities or movies in the common area.

Close to civilization, so great for beginners in case you forget to bring anything.
