Reservations Reservations can be made up to 4 weeks in advance and are recommended yearround. Reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance. Reservations can be made by visiting ReserveAmerica.com or by calling 1-888-EBPARKS (1-888-327-2757) option 2. Group Camping Organized groups of 11 or more campers are encouraged to use the group camps rather than the family campground. Phone 1-888EBPARKS (1-888-327-2757) option 2, to reserve group camping areas. Recreation Hiking There are many hiking trails in Anthony Chabot Regional Park. Trails within walking distance of the campground are described below. Ask for an Anthony Chabot Regional Park map. Towhee Trail is the best introductory hike, and it begins right in the campground. It is a one-mile trail that loops through the campground. Honker Bay Trail leads down to Lake Chabot – for fishing or just for the hike. Allow one and one-half hours for the round trip. Bicycles are permitted. CHECK-OUT TIME ................................. 12 noon CHECK-IN TIME.......................................... 2 p.m. RE-REGISTER BY...................................... 10 a.m. GATES CLOSE NIGHTLY........................ 10 p.m. Campground entry gate closes at 10 p.m. There is no entry from 10 p.m. until the gates reopen at 8 a.m. the next morning. Campers may leave at any time. Huck’s Trail is the quickest way to the lake, but also the steepest. The trail begins outside the gate to the hike-in campsites and drops downhill to meet Honker Bay Trail. No bicycles allowed. Brandon Trail, which is part of the East Bay Skyline National Trail, crosses the campground entrance road at the day-use parking lot. From this trail, there is access to most other trails in Anthony Chabot Regional Park. NOTE: Poison Oak has been pruned as much as possible. Nonetheless, learn to identify it, and then avoid it. Fishing Lake Chabot is a reserve water supply, so swimming and private boating are prohibited except for canoes and kayaks launched from the Marina. However, the fishing and hiking are first-rate. The lake is frequently stocked with many kinds of game fish. A California State Fishing License with stamps and an EBRPD Daily Fishing Access Permit are required for all fishers age 16 and above. Daily EBRPD permits may be purchased at the campground or at the Lake Chabot Marina. Senior Fishing Access Permits, good for one year from the date of purchase, are available for $120 to disabled persons and those age 62 and older. These are honored at all District lakes and reservoirs. Campfire Programs are led by naturalists at the campground amphitheater, Saturday evenings from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Firewood is sold at the entry kiosk. To reduce the spread of Sudden Oak Death Syndrome, wood brought to the campground must be commercially processed and purchased. 2950 Peralta Oaks Court Oakland, CA 94605-0381 1-888-EBPARKS www.ebparks.org Anthony Chabot Campground 9999 Redwood Road Oakland, CA 1-888-327-2757, x4502 Rev. 5/2021 Campground Rules It is the camper’s responsibility to know and follow all campground rules: • Camping is allowed only in designated areas. • A maximum of 8 persons may occupy any single campsite. • One campsite per household is the maximum. • Only two motor vehicles may occupy the same campsite.

Anthony Chabot Wildflowers A photographic guide to showy wildflowers of Anthony Chabot Regional Park Sorted by Flower Color Photographs by Wilde Legard Botanist, East Bay Regional Park District Revision: February 23, 2007 More than 2,000 species of native and naturalized plants grow wild in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most are very difficult to identify without the help of good illustrations. This is designed to be a simple, color photo guide to help you identify some of these plants. The selection of showy wildflowers displayed in this guide is by no means complete. The intent is to expand the quality and quantity of photos over time. The revision date is shown on the cover and on the header of each photo page. A comprehensive plant list for this area (including the many species not found in this publication) can be downloaded at the East Bay Regional Park District’s wild plant download page at: http://www.ebparks.org. This guide is published electronically in Adobe Acrobat® format to accommodate these planned updates. You have permission to freely download and distribute, and print this pdf for individual use. You are not allowed to sell the electronic or printed versions. In this version of the guide, only showy wildflowers are included. These wildflowers are sorted first by flower color, then by plant family (similar flower types), and finally by scientific name within each family. Under each photograph are four lines of information, based on the current standard wild plant reference for California: The Jepson Manual: Higher Plants of California, 1993. Common Name These non-standard names are based on Jepson and other local references. Scientific Name Scientific names revised since 1993 are NOT included in this edition. Origin & Longevity Native or Introduced. Annual, Biennial, Perennial, or a combination. Family Name The common plant family name according to Jepson. For readers that prefer a more comprehensive guide, sorted by scientific name, please download the “wild plants” version of this guide.
