The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is updating its long-term plan for the Contra Loma Regional Park and the adjacent Antioch Community Park. The previous plan was written in 1975, before a population boom hit East Contra Costa County.
The reservoir, which is owned by the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD), is available for year-round fishing and a lifeguarded swim lagoon for summertime swimming. Fishing is allowed, but those who wish to fish must purchase a Daily Fishing Access Permit. There is also an access fee. The reservoir contains catfish, black and striped bass, bluegill, trout, and red-eared sunfish.

  • A great local regional park where you can have a nice stroll around the lake or have a fun bbq with friends and family at the numerous picnic tables scattered around the park. The park is well kept and clean, good job rangers! I’ve always only met the friendliest of people when I come here. It’s dog friendly, but make sure to take poop bags with you to clean up after your dog. In the fall time to trees around the lake turn a beautiful array of colors! There are also many hiking trails around the lake, most are beginner friendly!
  • Probably the best thing in Antioch. Lots of trails, a reasonable amount of shade and a nice man made lagoon. Our kids had fun chasing the ground squirrels, lizards and wild turkeys. Also plenty of friendly people doing the loop for their morning exercise.
