Mount Diablo State Park Alerts
Water Shortage at Mount Diablo State Park
Due to the prolonged drought that California has experienced and the recent lack of rainfall, the springs on the mountain have been reduced to a trickle and the water storage tanks are close to empty. This has required us to take a number of drastic measures in order to conserve water:
• All of the water faucets located in the picnic areas and Rock City have been turned off as a result of the water shortage.
• Flush toilets are available at the Junction Ranger Station, the Lower Summit Parking Lot, and the Upper Summit Parking Lot.
• The showers at the Live Oak Campground and Juniper Campground are closed. Restrooms are open.
• Potable water is available at the Lower Summit Parking Lot and the Upper Summit Parking Lot.
ALL VISITORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO BRING WATER FOR CONSUMPTION DURING THEIR VISIT. If you are planning a long hike, run, walk, bicycle ride, or horseback ride, please bring plenty of water to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
