Pardee Reservoir

The heart of EBMUD's drinking water supply, Pardee Reservoir, is great for fishing, boating and camping. Kokanee salmon, large and smallmouth bass and catfish share the waters with trophy-size trout. Little-visited coves invite you to drop your line, or just sit back and savor the views. Oak-studded campgrounds offer camping areas for tents and RVs.

Camanche Resevoir

A 12-square mile surface makes Camanche Resevoir bigger than all other EBMUD resevoirs combined.  Recreation areas on the north and south shores are open all year.  Popular activities on the vast lake include fishing, swimming, windsurfing,water-skiing and jet-skiing.   Both shores offer comfortable campgrounds.
