Bothe-Napa Valley State Park
Bothe-Napa Valley State Park, which has been operated by the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District since 2012, offers year-round camping, picnicking, hiking, and seasonal swimming.
Daytime visitors can bring a picnic basket and bottle of wine to enjoy in the leafy shade of our day use area. On hot summer days, bring a swimsuit and enjoy a dip in the park’s spring fed swimming pool. Over 10 miles of hiking trails among Redwoods, Maples, Oaks, and Madrones are available in this 1,900-acre park. The History Trail, which goes past a pioneer cemetery, connects Bothe with the Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park.
Overnight visitors can enjoy Bothe-Napa Valley’s campsites, yurts, and cabins year round. Bothe-Napa Valley has dry camping for RVs up to 32 feet and trailers up to 24 feet. At this time only the cabins have electricity. x
