Napa Valley State Park

Napa Valley State Park
Bothe-Napa Valley State Park has the the only campgrounds in Napa Valley. So if your planning on spending some time in Napa Valley and on a tight budget this is the place. There's hiking trails through stands of maple and oak, picnic grounds, a swimming pool which is open in the summer and historical places of interest. There are only 37 campsites at Napa Valley State Park so during the summer reservations are a must. The park is located 5 miles north of St. Helena and 4 miles south of Calistoga on Highway 29/128.
Located by the entrance to the park is the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center and entrance station are open intermittently when staffing is available. Brochures (hiking maps) are also available by mail.
Next to the park's visitor center is the Native American Garden which displays some of the plants important to the first people of this area. Interpretive programs are offered throughout the year. Special programs can sometimes be arranged for groups by calling the park in advance. Campground Reservations
