Quiet residential street with no through traffic. Sloped driveway, you may want to use levelers if you have them. No streetlights. I have a native plant garden with garden paths for you to enjoy. Please note I can only accommodate standard van type rigs. No street parking. Suggested Local Attractions:Located near the base of Mt Diablo State Park (South Gate Rd/Mt Diablo Scenic Blvd side). Excellent road and MTBing from here. Hiking nearby, can either walk to or drive (less than 2 miles to several trails). Charming downtown with many fine restaurants, coffee shops and wine tasting rooms. 30 minutes to Berkeley and about 45 minutes to San Francisco. Livermore wine tasting region also nearby. Local Train Depot Museum in town and Visitor Center Museum at the summit of Mt. Diablo.

    We had a great night staying here. We were able to take the dogs on a nice walk around the neighborhood. We had a great time comparing and chatting about for vans. Our hosts were kind and generous.

    This was my first stay with Boondockers Welcome and what a s great experience! Hosts are very friendly, accommodating and have a wealth of information on vans and van travel. Quiet neighborhood for sleeping and a great place to get outside the city chaos for a few days.

    Ruth Ann and Scott are absolutely lovely people who we shared an amazing evening with. Their neighborhood is beautiful and safe and they provided us with blocked ws to level. Having hook up to power was also really great. Honestly, everything was perfect. Fun to see their van too.Thank you both for everything!

    I was in town to hike mount diablo and this was the perfect place to come rest after the hike. Beautiful garden and suburban hiking to enjoy near the home. Ruth gave great advice for hiking the mountain and other fun activities in the area. It was a lovely stay.

    This is what Boondockers Welcome is all about. Ruth Ann and Scott offer their residential driveway in a high demand urban area where legal RV overnight parking is hard to find. A real TREASURE. Neighborhood is nice, safe, and quiet. Gator Garden's native plants and artistic furniture and structures are beautiful. The hosts are gracious and hospitable offering electricity and Wi-Fi. Loved the tour of their custom built Ford Transit van built for their active cycling lifestyle.
