You can check in at either of the Entrance Stations (South Gate from Pleasanton, or North Gate from Walnut Creek). If there’s nobody at the Entrance Station one of the Park Rangers will cruise around, during the afternoon and check you off against thhe camping list. I believe one extra vehicle is allowed, at $10. Although you can check in at any time before the Park closes st dusk, I’d strongly suggest you get there around 2:00pm, if possible.
