1 Park near Oakland, California
Nov 2015 - $35.00
This park is about 20 miles from home for me so it was a great quick getaway. Some sites are pretty close to each other but on the edge of the loops you'll find lots of open space outside your door. The gun range is close, but was only background noise for us, and stops at 5:00pm so we were never bothered by it. You'll find a ton of hiking and biking trails, plus some pretty good fishing here.
Redwood Road is windy, and doesn't have much of a shoulder, but you'll find pullouts fairly often. Also, watch out for the cyclists, they're on the road any time of the day, every day of the week. In California you much give cyclists a 3 ft clearance when passing. - MadAdventures

This rustic regional park campground is in the hills above Castro Valley - a beautiful retreat above the city surrounded by eucalyptus trees. Twisty, narrow road through the hills so take your time and avoid driving at night. Very quiet and peaceful - nice and dark at night - spacious gravel sites (you'll need to do some leveling). - rushin river

This is a terrific campground for smaller rigs - large ones (especially trailers) will have a hard time getting into most of the sites. The road to the 12 RV sites is narrow, many trees and a steep drop-off. If you have a large rig, sites 1 - 6 are good, but others will be difficult to impossible. The park is about 7 miles from Castro Valley - winding road through the Oakland Hills. Drive carefully and watch for bicycles and motorcycles. Park is very quiet, good views, lots of birds, hiking trails. We love it! If you have little kids looking for playgrounds and swimming pools, this probably isn't for you. - Cindy S
