Camping: The jam takes place in an urban area and there is no place to camp in Berkeley. But if you are willing to commute by car, there’s a lovely campground in the redwoods at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in the Oakland hills. Chabot campground has bathrooms with hot showers, picnic tables and a lake for swimming. Sites are $22 per night and can sleep up to 8 people. There are also group sites available. Reservations can be made here: http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/Anthony_Chabot/r/campgroundDetails.do?page=details&contractCode=EB&parkId=110004&topTabIndex=CampingSpot
