The marshland area on Dillon’s Point is a favorite place for fishing.

Great For: Cyclists, runners, walkers, equestrians, roller skaters, picnics, bird watching and fishing.

Camping & Day Use: Three “Enroute” campsites are available for an overnight stay on a “firstcome, first-served” basis with no reservations possible. This camping is limited to motor homes or vehicles with trailers, which must be fully self-contained. Tents are not permitted.

Did You Know? The Bay Area Ridge Trail runs through the park, part of a larger loop trail. The Benicia SRA is a designated Important Bird Area, which provides essential habitat for bird species including Virginia Rails, endangered California Clapper Rails and Black Rails, herons, egrets, pelicans and terns.
