Create an itinerary including Los Vaqueros Reservoir
The Los Vaqueros Reservoir and watershed is located in the northern Diablo Range, within northeastern Contra Costa County, northern California. It was completed by the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) in 1998 to improve the quality of drinking water for its 550,000 customers in Central and Eastern Contra Costa County. The reservoir is accessible via Vasco Road, a road which connects Brentwood and Livermore.

Some 20,000 acres of land was acquired to provide for construction of the dam and its 1500-acre reservoir, as well as protection of 19,300 acres of associated watershed.

  • We were limited to two short trains, one near each entrance, due to nesting eagles. Scenery limited to beautiful, large oaks - some partially submerged within reservoir, & barren, yellow hills.

  • Very serene and beautiful. Lot of people were fishing here. We came just for few hours and did the boat ride. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Nature.
  • The Watershed is a great place to go fishing with state of the art docks that are wheelchair friendly beautiful ramps for you to get to the docks, you can rent a boat, Staff and the Watershed are five star.
