Overview

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!

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.

As we were not able to visit Muir Woods due to the crowds, it was a real treat to walk through Bothe-Napa and see the redwoods in total solitude. We saw only one other group the whole time on the trails. Did Coyote Peak and...More

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
