Is this a huckleberry or something nasty?

Q: I saw these plants with what I think are huckleberries out at Harris Beach and at the rest area across from Harris Beach. Others have said they are not and are dangerous to eat. I would like help identifying them. The names I know are the evergreen, winter or California Huckleberry.
