  • All canvas houses have access to electricity.

ABOUT THE CAMP

EcoCamp Berryessa is an environmental education camp located on the peaceful northern shoreline of Lake Berryessa. The camp, which was completed in 2015 and funded through a major grant from the State Coastal Conservancy, features solar power, showers feeding into a graywater system, environmentally friendly composting toilets, permanent tent cabins, a stone amphitheater, a canoe/kayak launch, a beach, and countless paths and trails connecting the visitor to the beauty of Lake Berryessa, which surrounds the camp on three sides. In keeping with its name, EcoCamp Berryessa was designed with an eye to energy-efficiency, use of natural and/or recycled materials, and resource conservation. The camp is located at 7850 Berryessa-Knoxville Road, just north of the Putah Creek Bridge. Consisting of approximately 10 acres, the site is characterized by blue oak woodlands, open grassland, and chamise. Several pair of osprey nest at or near the camp and it is not unusual to see bald eagles, river otter, and a resident grey fox.  In April, the site should be particularly attractive.
