Overview

More
Located in beautiful Napa Valley wine country, Bothe-Napa Valley offers year-round camping for tents, RVs, bikes, walk-ins and now YURTS! Day visitors enjoy picnicking, hiking trails and a seasonal swimming pool. Large picnic grounds are available for group events. Stop in at our Visitor Center in the 1860s Tucker House, and learn about the park's first homestead families - trail maps available. Hikes range from easy, shady strolls in the redwoods to longer hikes up to Coyote Peak with great views of the valley. Or, take a hike on the History Trail past the historic Pioneer Cemetery and on to our sister park, the Bale Grist Mill, where you can take a tour of an operating water powered mill built in 1846 that still grinds grain on the original stones!

This place rocks if you can handle some of the campsites being loud/party spots. However, it is an awesome place to have a nice Napa valley camping experience, with pool and lots of kids. Hiking trails are great!

An easy park to access if you are staying in Calistoga. We took a beautiful 5 mile hike. There are a few hills but not too difficult. Lots of redwoods. There is a $7 entrance fee.
