Anthony Chabot Regional Park
About The Park: Camping and a wealth of other outdoor activities are available only 20 minutes from downtown Oakland at the 3,304-acre Anthony Chabot Regional Park. A beautiful, year-round public campground and 70 miles of hiking and riding trails make Chabot one of the District’s most varied parklands.
Hiking, Riding and Bicycle Trails: Visitors can explore miles of beautiful hiking, riding, and bicycling trails through grasslands, chaparral, and shady eucalyptus groves, or along the shores of Lake Chabot. The East Bay Skyline National Trail, which traverses 31 miles of East Bay hills from Richmond to Castro Valley, runs the length of the park. Anthony Chabot is connected to Cull Canyon Regional Recreation Area by a six-mile section of the Chabot-to-Garin Regional Trail.

The campground features 53 drive-to tent campsites, 10 walk-to tent campsites, and 12 RV/trailer campsites with full hookups (sewer, water, and 30 amp electrical). All sites have a picnic table and fire ring with grill. Restrooms include hot showers. Firewood and charcoal are available for purchase. The campground provides access to miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, along with fishing at nearby Lake Chabot. Park Naturalists lead campfire programs at the campground amphitheater, Saturday evenings from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
