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!

We did the historic trail at a good speed due to time constraints and it was quite a challenge, but one we welcomed. It was a good work-out. We were astonished to see cigarette butts near the end of the trail where the Mill is...More

The only downside to this park is the $8 entrance fee, Robert Louis Stevenson Park is free and more extensive, but it is less convenient to the Napa Valley area.

Bothe Park is a wonderful escape from the ever-increasing traffic and congestion in wine country. Park your car and hit the trails -- away from the noise of Highway 29 and into the peaceful forest past rushing streams and blooming wildflowers in spring, although each...More
