If you love hiking in the mountains, then drive about 40 miles southwest from Stockton to Livermore. Del Valle Regional Park is nestled in a valley beside a large lake. With more than 4,000 acres of hills, this East Bay park is the ideal location for exploring trails on foot or horseback.
Del Valle Regional Park has an equestrian camp area with paddocks that are big enough for two horses. The Little Chaparral area is for individual campers, and the Caballo Loco camp is for equestrian groups. Since the park has staging areas in several spots, you can invite your friends who live locally to join you for some riding.
“Nice place to picnic and/or camp. Make reservations for camping. Beach is large with supervision, nice and shallow for the little ones, roped off from boaters, fishing is good too…” – Edward, Trip Advisor Review
