Several Recreation Areas at Lake Berryessa are operated on Reclamation’s behalf by Concession Contractors to provide enhanced recreational opportunities, such as camping, cabins, boat launches, and marina services. 

In addition to concession-managed areas, all Reclamation-managed facilities continue to be open, including free access to the Oak Shores, Smittle Creek and Eticuera Day Use Areas and free use of the Capell Cove Boat Launch. Oak Shores Day Use Area is fully restored to day use this year with no overnight camping. For information, please call 707-966-2111.

The Lake Berryessa Wildlife Area, on the lake's east side, continues to be open. This jointly managed 2,000-acre wildlife area provides great bird and wildlife viewing. For information, please visit the Calif. Department of Fish and Wildlife's website.

In addition, the Napa County Regional Parks and Open Space District (District) is cooperating with Reclamation in developing the Camp Berryessa area as an environmental education center. The District will be completing the design through a grant from the California Coastal Conservancy.
