Find Campsites

ATTENTION: Effective April 9, 2014; We will not be accepting any reservations beyond Sunday, July 6, for camping, picnicking, swimming or special events at Del Valle Regional Park. This action is in response to the historic drought conditions affecting California. A predicted drawdown of Del Valle reservoir this summer for drinking water supplies will most likely result in the lake level falling below the intakes of the parks public water system. Without an operational park water system we will be unable to provide drinking water, operate the parks sanitary sewer system, or provide for adequate fire protection. Existing reservations prior to June 8 will be honored but are contingent upon adequate lake levels and water supplies.
