Berkeley Tuolumne Camp

Berkeley Tuolumne Camp, in operation since 1922, has been a highly regarded summer tradition for generations of campers. More than 4,000 individuals annually enjoyed fun-filled activities and heartfelt traditions at Tuolumne Camp. On August 25, 2013, Berkeley Tuolumne Camp was largely destroyed by the Rim Fire, one of the largest and most damaging wildfires in California’s history. This was a devastating setback for the City of Berkeley and generations of staff and campers. Of the 138 total structures at the Camp, only 18 tent cabins and the restroom near Sun City survived the fire.

The Berkeley Tuolumne Camp Project will replace the Camp facilities that were destroyed by the Rim Fire in 2013. In order to comply with current state, local and federal code, Camp facilities have been relocated and reconfigured, and additional off-street parking will be constructed. The work includes construction of buildings, bridges, parking, pathways and utilities. 

Below is a graphic that depicts the Project Area. Construction is expected to begin in mid-May, 2020, and take about 2 years to complete, depending on weather or unforeseen conditions. No interruptions to local residential sewer, water, gas, electric or phone service are anticipated. Hardin Flat Road in the immediate vicinity of Camp will be subject to intermittent closure or traffic control during construction. The entire Berkeley Tuolumne Camp permit area will be closed to pedestrian and recreational users throughout the construction.  For questions or concerns, please contact Project Manager Liza McNulty via phone (510-981-6437) or emailLMcNulty@cityofberkeley.info
