This campground is only 30 minutes from central Oakland. We were in site 12, which fit my 25' trailer just fine. My tow vehicle had to park perpendicular. Some of the RV/utility sites are close, and others are widely spaced. Ours was the latter - perhaps the best of the 12 utility sites in my opinion. The access roads are narrow and a bit twisty. Only the first 6 sites would probably work for a rig in the 30+ range. There are no facilities/playgrounds for children, but we did some hiking and spent the rest of our free time in Oakland or SF. There are a couple pig green grassy areas that are good for a ball game. The campground is very quiet. We saw turkeys, deer and raccoons. If you have a long haired dog, like I do - keep them out of the dry summer grasses. There are so many burrs and sticky seeds, it will be a disaster for your dog. Short hair dogs are probably fine. I checked, and there were lots of TV channels available for a broadcast antenna, but so many eucalyptus trees that a satellite dish might have problems. They were allowing campfires, so we indulged ourselves every night. I would happily stay here again. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in a site with FHU. Very narrow road inside park and site pad was narrow and short. Our site was on the side of the hill so everything off the pad was uneven but this is expected in a regional park. The park itself is gorgeous and you truly get the feel of being in the middle of nowhere. Sites were spaced far enough apart that we didn't hear our neighbors on either side. The road in is an older, narrow, winding road which was an adventure pulling our trailer up and down. We would definitely stay here on a visit to the Bay Area. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Safeway market on Redwood Road at Castro Valley Blvd is closest market. Castro Valley Village next door is a quaint shopping center with "Mom and Pop" shops.

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. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You're about 10 miles from Oakland so if you want to take in some high end cuisine or museums you easily can. You're also about 10 miles from Castro Valley. No longer the cute little town I grew up in, but very convenient for a meal or stocking up.

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). We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thirty minutes or so from Castro Valley and the Oakland Hills - so stock up before you head up. Tons of shopping, entertainment, culture in the region.

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.

When you look up this park's website, they talk about it overlooking Lake Chabot, but from the RV sites, we didn't see any water. The 12 RV sites are at the top of a hill and only 2 are drive through. The pads are paved, but not necessarily level. I didn't see a shower in the bathroom but I didn't look very hard for one. The one ladies room toilet was partially outdoors and one night when I went in, there were little paw prints on and in the toilet from some little critter looking for water. The only activity you could participate in from the RV sites (without another vehicle) is hiking. The rate above didn't include our two dogs (another $2 each for each night) or the rental car that we got our second day there. That cost us another $8 a day to park it there. So hidden costs made it more like $44 a day. Their breakers tripped on our rig every time I tried to plug in our 30 amp system. They sent someone immediately after we reported it, but the people they sent said it was us and there was nothing wrong. I asked to move to a different site, but all 12 were rented. There was a sign at the entrance about not using generators so we were really stuck. We did string a couple of power strips together out the window to plug into the 20 amps for our coffee maker and toaster. (Now we have a heavy duty extension cord but we didn't when we got there.) When we tried the full rig on 20 amp with an adapter, that also tripped the breaker. Over the next 3 days I talked to 3 different repair people who said it was not us, it was them. I reported that when a worker stopped to tell us to unplug as they were working on the electric but no one checked further. At that time (our 2nd night) they said we could run our generator which we did for a while. We ended up having to run our generator for a while each of the remaining nights to keep our battery up for our lights. Luckily, it wasn't hot there. We were on a 24 day trip and this was the only place where we had trouble plugging in. I talked to another RV repair guy about a week later and he said breakers on a service are like surge protectors, they wear out over time when they are tripped and eventually they break. I think that is what happened here, but no one would check it our any further. Perhaps, if the next campers there had trouble they did. I sure hope so. If you like hiking, quiet and not many RVs around you, this is a nice park. It is quite a drive to get to it though. And there is a gun range nearby that is open Friday - Monday so if your dogs are gun-shy, I wouldn't recommend it. This is about the only RV park in the Oakland area but I probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Basic campsite in the woods east of San Francisco. Very nice sites with a lot of space in this Regional Park. Very limited /no facilities close to the RV site. No mobile phone service and no WiFi. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Motorhome.

A nice park and a good place to relax. Would stay here again. The shooting range in the vicinity is the only thing that is a bit disturbing. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Truck Camper.

This is a beautiful park and a nice setting convenient to visiting the SF Bay Area. However a camp site and 1 car for $30 per night is a misnomer, because the park system counts motors. If I'm driving a MH Towing a car. I have to pay $8 per night for an extra vehicle. $38 per night without the extra amenities like Wi-Fi and Cable TV is expensive. Bring your 5er, tent, or pop up, and have a nice stay. We won't be coming back. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Rate includes full hook-up + $2/day dog fee. Beautiful location with 12 full hook-up sites (one of them is ADA only). Gate is locked at 10 PM and it is a long walk, 2.2 miles, to the campground. Currently the park is only open from Friday, 2 PM, to Sunday, noon - it should be open all week long after April 2012. I agree with the previous reviewer that this is a tough campground to drive to, especially if you have a big RV. Luckily, our trailer is only 21' and we had no problems with height or backing in but we had to be careful driving through the camp loops due to narrow roads. Sites are paved and somewhat unlevel; utilities are good. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent campground. We stayed at a full hookup site. The campground was rustic, many tall trees, wandering wild turkeys. We didn't notice the shooting range. Our particular site (#5) faced an open area so it felt very spacious. On this trip, Oakland, Russian River, Clear Lake, and Pismo Coast, this was by far our favorite site.

This is a decent campground and fairly rustic looking. It features trees, tall grass and dirt. The sites are a decent size. Only 12 of the sites are full hook up (1 through 12) the rest are dry camping. Some of the sites (8-12) are thickly wooded so satellite reception would be difficult. Cell signal is present but sketchy. The states budget woes are evident on the way to the campground. The Redwood highway is badly overgrown with large trees growing into the road from the sides and over hanging the top. Redwood highway is a twisty two lane highway with lots of blind corners, and is 6 miles long to the campground. I had to navigate down the middle of the road in several areas to avoid serious damage to the Motor home, a dangerous situation. I still wound up destroying a WiFi antenna on the roof due to overhanging branches. The $36 dollar price per night reflects a $6 charge per night for your towed vehicle to enter and stay at the park. Dogs are also charged at $2 per day, each. So actually we paid $38 per night, not the $30 advertised price on the web site. Water pressure is low, about 25-30 pounds. Sites are paved but narrow. The view of the valley is nice, but mostly obscured by thick trees. I would not stay here again due to the road hazards getting to the park. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground set amongst huge eucalyptus trees. We stayed at site #8 which is one of the full hook up sites. Everything is very clean and tidy, the showers are just fine. In our opinion, one mayor downside to this campground is that the gate that is 2.5 miles from the campground shuts at 10 pm. you can get out, but you cannot get in (tire shredders stop you from coming in through the exit) We were hoping to enjoy a bit of the nightlife in the surrounding towns, but could not because of the gates closing at 10 pm. Although this is a very nice campground, we would not stay here again, but for anyone that does not mind the gates being locked at 10 pm, we would recommend it.

We had never been to Northern California with the trailer before, and this was the greatest trip ever. There is a shooting range onsite and it was not a bother at all. My dogs enjoyed it, my daughter enjoyed it, and so did my husband and I. We went to San Francisco one day and the Oakland Zoo on another. We will definitely come back.
