San Ramon Campgrounds

Camping in the outdoors is an enjoyable recreation for almost anyone who enjoys being close to nature. For families, these memories last a lifetime and encourage young adults to continue the experience of living away from home and uncoupling themselves from their daily routine.

San Ramon is blessed with some of the most spectacular and vast wilderness and open spaces in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. With Mount Diablo State Park close by, hikers can make their way deep into the woods to enjoy the quiet and serenity of nature. 

The East Bay Regional Park District which surrounds San Ramon offers campers many choices of campgrounds and facilities. For families interested in having a traditional camping experience the "Family" campsites are most convenient. Large groups have their pick of group camping locations in any of the 11 parks in the East Bay.
