This is all you camper that know the Shirtless Host l will be coming back to California. Iam going to be at Bothe-Napa Valley starting in September. Stop in and say hi. This park will not disappoint you at all. It is in the middle of the Napa valley and more to do in just one weekend. So hope to see all my RV friends at this outstanding camp. See you all in September.
Happy Trials and remember that camping fun but family camping is more fun.

Stayed in a yurt here over President's Day weekend; great location and awesome/unique camping experience. Highly recommend. Be sure to bring own bedding and lighting if you do the yurt stay. Can pick up firewood from the ranger.

There were 10 of us who reserved 4 of the yurts, and had a blast. They are clean, with one mattress and 2 cots per yurt. The bathrooms were clean, as were the showers. Overall, this park is well kept. It's enclosed by tress and keeps the park cool on the warmer days. There are also two vineyards within walking distance.

$$$ for camping, but in such a sweet spot that it's worth it! BTW, just came up for a day hike here a few weeks ago and the poison oak is no joke. I've never seen so much before... Maybe because this time I was the "mom" and not the "kid." Totally different!

We camped here for our "camping weekend wedding" and it was perfect. We didn't like the group site (too close to the road), so we just unofficially booked a few sites close to one another and had a blast. We're a quite, light-drinking crowd, so it was fine.

The hike over to the grist mill is well worth it; not too strenuous and really beautiful. Make sure that the grist mill is open so you can catch one of the free tours.
