Lake Berryessa Camping

Lake Berryessa is managed by the Bureau of Reclamation. After several years of uncertainty, new concessioners have been selected to operate some of the recreation sites. The Bureau of Reclamation still manages four day-use-only sites.

The newly improved recreation areas offer camping as well as other recreational activities such as boating and fishing. Some campgrounds still do not have water available.

Forever Resorts, which operates the Pleasure Cove Marina, manages their campground at Pleasure Cove as well as those at Steele Canyon and Spanish Flat.   Berryessa Point and Monticello Shores Recreation Areas will remain closed for now.
