Lake Del Valle is the centre-piece of Del Valle’s Regional Park, situated in Alameda County, California. The five-mile long lake, along with the Del Valle Dam, is part of the California State Water Project. Located on the lake’s west side, The Rocky Ridge Visitor Center features exhibits and information about the natural history of Del Valle and surrounding wilderness.
The park is also home to the eastern gateway of the Ohlone Wilderness Trail, a 28-mile scenic backcountry trail, a suitable spot for hiking, horseback riding and picnicking. The lake, which also acts as a storage reservoir, is a great spot for fishing as it has abundance of trout, catfish, bass, and panfish.
