Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

The largest campground in Mount Diablo State Park, Juniper Campground sits at 3,000 feet and overlooks Diablo Valley and much of the greater Bay Area. Laid out on a loop, a quarter of Juniper’s sites are situated on the western edge of the campground and provide spectacular views. The others offer better shade, and although they don’t offer the same views, they are only a short walk from from the breathtaking vistas. Traditional Diablo grills are provided for a handful of the roomier sites; the others are equipped with a campfire pit.

The Juniper Trail, part of the  7-mile Great Loop that circumnavigates Mount Diablo, passes next to the Juniper Campground and offers an excellent day hike option.

Dogs are permitted at the campground, but they must remain on a 6-foot leash, and they are not permitted on nearby trails.
