Camp at Bothe-Napa Valley SP

San Francisco Bothe-Napa Valley SP

Added by

This is a clean campground with great hiking nearby and a spring-fed pool. Showers, outdoor fire pits, and picnic tables are available at this campground. Want a little more comfortable camping experience? The yurts feature queen size beds, table, chairs, and keyed access.

Looking for a romantic getaway but you’d prefer to spend your nights around a campfire? This adventure is for you. This beautiful Napa Valley campground has it all – 10 miles of hiking trails, 1,900 acres to explore, and…new yurts! Yurts are basically cool circular tents that allow you enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing the comforts of a cabin. While this definitely falls into the category of “glamping”, I’m pretty sure your significant other won’t be complaining. Besides, there’s nothing worse than waking up on the ground after a long day of wine tasting.

Daytime visitors can bring a picnic basket and bottle of wine and enjoy a day in the leafy shade of their day use area. On hot summer days, bring a swimsuit and enjoy a dip in the park’s spring fed swimming pool.

On a warm day, try the shady, 3-mile-long Ritchey Canyon trail, which can be reached from the campground or from a parking area east of the visitor center. This hike will take you past impressive second-growth redwood stands that sprouted after logging in the 1850s, as well as Douglas-firs, big leaf maples, madrones, tanoaks and oaks.

Another popular hike is the 5-mile-long loop up to 1,170-foot Coyote Peak. Vegetation blocks the view in most places, but occasionally you'll get glimpses of Napa Valley and Mount Saint Helena.

Yurts cost $70/night. Reserve yours here.

Done the trail, not the camping.

The yurts are great and the campground is super clean and very well maintained.

Went with our little guy as his first foray into camping. It was amazing and a perfect overnight trip! The yurts are clean and brand new. They come furnished with a twin bed, two cots, and a table with bench. They're big enough for a travel crib and have a locking door with window. The campsites are trail accessible and close to wineries if you want to take advantage for a day trip. It was a bit cold at night when we went (in February), but we'll definitely be back late spring/early summer!
