Lake Escape


Published:

If you’re searching for a great place to enjoy May’s mild weather, why not spend a day out on the water of Livermore’s Lake Del Valle?
From Highway 580, head south on Livermore Avenue, then make a right on Mines Road, and follow it to the park. For a small day fee, you have access to the five-mile-long lake and 3,997 acres of surrounding land.

At the marina, you can rent a rowboat, a canoe, or a four-person paddle boat for $32 (and a $20 refundable deposit) for half a day. Early risers should bring their fishing license and gear (and $4 for the day fee), although the folks at the marina can hook you up with any supplies you may have left in the garage.

Feel free to explore, but be sure to stop by the south end, where the creek enters the lake—the lake records for trout and stripers are set there.
For those looking for a more leisurely morning, Park Supervisor Shelly Miller suggests cruising the western shore of the lake and watching for bald eagles. Del Valle is one of the best places to see the majestic icons.
