Information on:

Bothe-Napa Valley State Park

3801 St. Helena Highway North

Located in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley wine country, the Park offers camping, picnicking, swimming, and hiking trails that go through stands of coastal redwoods as well as forests of Douglas-fir, tanoak, and madrone.

Daytime visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll in Ritchey Canyon on the Redwood Trail to view the delicate ferns and listen to the water splashing down the rocky creekbed. Bring your wine and cheese and picnic under the towering Douglas Firs. 

On hot summer days, grab a swimsuit and towel and come enjoy a dip in the park's swimming pool.  There is an additional fee for the use of the swimming pool, to be paid at the park entrance. Current pool hours and dates of operation are posted on this page (see right sidebar) under "Operating Hours" and are subject to change. 

The large picnic grounds are located in the day use area, and are even available for group events and getaways. A covered area for group use contains picnic tables, a sink and an electrical outlet with a horseshoe pit and wheelchair-accessible restroom nearby.

Whether you visit the back country on a several hour hike or take a mere stroll along the creekbed, you will enjoy a close-up look at all the natural beauty that the park has to offer. There are well over 10 miles of trail for your indulgence.

Wonderful state park! We stayed in yurts 4 & 5, which were very nice & the bathrooms were new/very clean. The pool is open on the weekends & adds a nice cool-off activity. There is A LOT of poison oak.

Great go-to park near me. Nice running hike to coyote peak is great for the body. Chill spot worth a pool for kids and Cali camping available as well. Keep an eye out for poison oak, it's rampant there.

35$ a night to camp isn't too bad. BEWARE there's A TON of ticks in the campsites. There are two camp hosts who circle the campsite 3xs an hour in a truck, golf cart, and by foot. So, there's kinda a lack of respect for privacy. There are cute Yurts up for rent, costing $65 a weekday and $85 for a weekend. The visitor center must be going under some type of construction as it was fenced off as of April 2018. There was wood for sale on site for $10 a bundle. Visitors can register themselves using self registration, although the camp host will make sure to question you about it for sure. There are clean, warm bathrooms on site, showers as well. Every few campsites there is running water so you can wash dishes there or get water to do dishes at camp. That was nice. The trail here does not allow dogs which was a bummer. Overall, a nice place but, I didn't like dealing with all the ticks.

This place is overrun with poison oak. It buts up directly to all campsites and roads. The website does not have disclaimers about the poison oak. If you have small kids or dogs, do not come here. WARNING: POISON OAK IS EVERYWHERE!!!!

Gorgeous campground smack dab between Calistoga and St. Helena. Unfortunately the wineries nearby play loud music on the weekends, but the location and proximity to everything makes up for it. There is a pool on the property open most of the summer.
