“Fantastic park close to the Bay Area!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

I camped out in Uvas Canyon last weekend and had a great time. It's only a 1 1/2 h drive from the Berkeley area, which is very convenient. The park is small but has some very nice short hikes with beautiful waterfalls and streams. The light fall through the trees in the canyon is amazing. Mind you, it is a canyon, so parts of the hikes could still be a bit of a challenge if you are not in shape.

The campground is small. The sites are relatively open, so if there are a lot of families on Saturday it can be a bit noisy. The best time to come is during the week or Sunday after 12PM. Sooo peaceful! The amenities are brand new and super clean!

I can totally recommend this park for a short camping trip or even just for a nice picnic and hike on the weekend. I will be back!

“uvas canyon hiking”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

fantastic park for hiking and taking the kids. You can hike down by the creed which is real fun and depending on the time of year there are waterfalls. Also very nice picnic and campgrounds.

“Waterfall Loop Trail”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

This park was a nice little gem of a find on our trip to the central coast. The park's website did not mention the six dollar day use fee. The drive in is along a two lane country road, which my husband loves. H calls it a motorcycle road. Just before entering the park you pass through a private Swedish enclave where the road narrows to one lane. You may have to wait a bit for the oncoming traffic. The park entrance has an electronic toll booth which accepts MasterCard and Visa, but not American Express. Park website states the Waterfall Loop Trail is a one mile loop. It actually is about one mile out and one back. By my calculation that is a two mile loop. Since this is a trail to waterfalls, expect an uphill hike. We chose to go up the right side which is mostly a service road above the creek. The falls had enough water in early July to see a good show. We honestly expected a trickle since California had such a bad year for rain. We took the trail along the creek in the downhill leg.There is a nice campground area in addition to the day use area. The restrooms had flush toilets and were well maintained. Overall, we had a lovely time enjoying this park and recommend it.

“Full Moon rising”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

its beautiful at night during a full moon, you could see the whole area when the moon is shining up in the sky and its quiet, but be careful to not be there too long because sheriffs pass by there doing patrol duties, but they are just concern for your safety and they are friendly too.
