Campgrounds in Napa, California

Campgrounds in Napa, California
Although Napa is best known for its wine country, the same warm weather and dry air that makes the region ideal for growing grapes is also responsible for beautiful parks that are open throughout the year. One of the best ways to enjoy the natural wonders of Napa is by camping in one of the area's many parks.

Boethe Napa Valley State Park

Boethe Napa Valley Park is located in the heart of wine country and features a number of excellent trails through redwood and Douglas fir forests. Hiking and biking trails are available, and there are a few campsites located on the trails specifically for people traveling on foot or by bike. Swimming, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, and picnicking are also popular activities on the grounds.
Near the main campsite area, there is a public swimming pool, coin-operated showers, an RV waterfill site, a native plant garden and a visitor center. RV, trailer and tent campers are all welcome.

Pleasure Cove Marina

Pleasure Cove offers full hookups, partial hookups and tent camping sites. While official rules limit campsites to six people, the staff is somewhat lenient on these rules. As a result, a lot of partyiers choose to stay at this camping area. If you want to wake up early to explore the natural beauty of Napa, this is probably not the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you are a late sleeper and want to experience all the fun there is to be had in Lake Berryessa, this might be a great choice.
The lake offers plenty of recreational activities, including boating, hiking, swimming, and fishing. Boat rentals are available, and pets are welcome.

Skyline Wilderness Park

The Skyline Wilderness Park is located just outside the city, but once you're in the park you feel miles away from society. Trails throughout the park are open to bikers, hikers and equestrians. Along the trails you can explore the natural beauty of Napa through fields of flowers, forests and lakes. Don't miss the native plant garden maintained by the California Native Plant Society. Other activities open to visitors include fishing, wildlife viewing and archery on the archery range.
The park has 20 tent and 39 RV campsites.
