Some EBRPD staff residences are located at this site. The campsite is closed during fire season (usually June through October). This land was originally settled by the Whitlock family, but much of the present landscape is the work of Eric Erickson, a Swedish immigrant, lumberjack, apprentice mason, and key worker on the Alameda Diversion Tunnel from Alameda Creek to Calaveras Reservoir. His home is now used as an EBRPD staff residence.

Camron-Stanford House
Thomas 1997  p.649  H-4.
This Italianate Victorian house on the southwest shore of Lake Merritt in Oakland was built in 1876, possibly as part of Samuel Merritt's real estate speculation in the area. It was occupied by five different families (Camrons, Hewes, Seatons, Stanfords, Wrights) until 1907, when Oakland purchased it as headquarters for the Oakland Public Museum (now the Oakland Museum of California). After the new museum was built in 1969, part of the house was restored to the period around 1880 when the David Hewes family occupied it (some space is rented to nonprofit organizations for offices). During hours when the house is open, an educational historical program is offered to the public. It is the only remaining example of the luxury houses that once surrounded the lake, with lawns stretching down to private boathouses on the shore.

Carquinez Scenic Drive
Road from east edge of Crockett to west edge of Martinez, near the south shore of the Carquinez Strait.  A landslide in 1982 caused closure of a central portion of this road about a mile long (from near Nevada Dock to near the west edge of the eastern portion of Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline).  Thus, you cannot now drive between Crockett and Martinez on this road (although many maps show the road as continuous).

Narrow channel from Suisun Bay into San Pablo Bay.
Before shipping channels were dredged in San Francisco Bay, the deep water in the Strait made it a natural site for wharfs where deep-water ships could load and unload.  Thus a variety of ports on both sides of the Strait specialized in handling and processing various products (see entries for individual towns and cities).

The original observatory was built in 1883 by Anthony Chabot. It was given to the Oakland school system with the condition that it be forever free to the public and the public schools. The original observatory was in downtown Oakland; the current observatory was opened in 1929. Because it sits in the Hayward Fault zone, a 1977 law bans its use by school classes. In 1989 plans were approved for a new observatory and science center in Joaquin Miller Park, where the telescopes and planetarium as well as other facilities will open to school classes and the public in 1999.

Crow Canyon Gardens
Thomas 1997  p.673  B-2.
The gardens were initially planted in 1978 as a source for fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables for Virginia Mudd's new Mudds Restaurant (next door). Her goal was to advance the art of growing, preparing and serving fresh wholesome food - to show the direct connection between the garden or farm and the dishes served in the dining room. In 1990 Virginia Mudd sold the restaurant and moved to New Mexico. The city of San Ramon purchased the 7 acres of gardens along San Ramon Creek as a park, maintained by the nonprofit Crow Canyon Institute. The restaurant was purchased by its general manager. The Institute provides ecological classes, a summer day-camp program, and community gardens. It grows food for the Contra Costa Food Bank. Much more information is provided on the website.

Crown Memorial State Beach
Thomas 1997  p.669  FG-2.
On the southwest shore of Alameda. Alameda's sandy beaches were popular resorts before 1880 (the beaches were much more extensive before landfill altered the currents - the present beach was actually created artificially on landfill). The most famous resort was Neptune Beach, created in 1916 at the end of Webster St, served by the streetcar line from Oakland. The resort went bankrupt in 1939, and the military purchased the land, operating a training facility for maritime officers centered at Oyster Bay (now Crab Cove). In 1959, California obtained the land and made it a State Park. It was later named for Robert W. Crown, a deceased state Assemblymember. The park is operated for the state by the East Bay Regional Park District. The beach extends from Crab Cove at the northwest to the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary at the southeast. Access from McKay Ave, Westline Dr, and Shoreline Dr. No fee.
