Never saw the hosts, came thru on NASCAR weekend so the entire area was booked solid, but this one was great EXCEPT....Do NOT go there from SF via GPS!!! IF it takes you through calistoga road! There were SEVERAL 11-12% grades up and down..... At the end, facing back the sign said trucks over 25' not recommended ( we were in 37' w mini van toad!). Worse than the trip THROUGH San Francisco and OVER the GG BRIDGE in midday......but back to the park. Nice basic fairgrounds park. Had 50 amp, water, no sewer ....someone said one was nearby, didn't need it. Gas close by if needed, quiet setting, big older trees. Fairly close, but not terrible. The trip back to the highway was MUCH less harrowing experience. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America. This is a typical no frills fairground campground with gravel and very narrow. Luckily, few were staying here so no one had immediate neighbors, it must be incredibly tight with slides and awnings (impossible?) when full. However, sites were of reasonable length for our 35' motor home and toad car so we didn't have to unhook, but no picnic tables and fires not allowed. The manager was very friendly and told us how to drive south via Silverado Trail rather than Hwy 29 which was not only faster but beautiful through the vineyards. It rained very hard and very poor drainage. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Thought it would be fun to visit the California "Old Faithful" but discovered it is privately owned and very pricey for a small geyser. Also there are no public hot springs - all of them are owned by expensive spas.

Rate is a mix of Passport America Discount and extra charge for long weekend nights.
We stayed a few days on our way home and didn't have the long weekend in mind. Big mistake. The campground was filled up to the very last spot. It was a zoo. Since the park is a gravel field with sites close together in parking lot layout there is no privacy left when the park is full.
Quite some noise from partying in the neighborhood (not the parks fault). We'll be back but avoid any weekends not to mention long weekends. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

All we have stated in our review from January is still true. Except for the dump that is now locked and as a registered guest you will get a code from the camphost to use it free. Otherwise it's still the not very appealing gravel parking lot. But we like Calistoga and what the area has to offer. With the Passport America Discount (Sun thru Thu) this campground is the best value for money in Napa Valley. We found it even more quiet at night than last time. Whenever we come to napa Valley this will be our choice to stay. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

When you approach or leave Calistoga from or to the south, use the Silverado Trail to drive from Napa to Calistoga (or the other way). Way less traffic, way less bumps in the road and almost no traffic lights or stop signs. The Silverado Trail is just a parallel road to Hwy 29 on the other side of the Valley.

I don't think people come to Calistoga for the ambiance of the RV parking experience but for what the area has to offer. As everyone has mentioned it's a great location on a gravel parking lot. They do not have picnic tables and if the park is full it will be tight. However when we visit in late fall it's fine. What few have mentioned that it's a P.A. campground and for the money you save per night you can go see some pretty nice wineries. We last stayed here about 5 yrs ago and since then they have tiled the bathrooms and spiffed them up some. We were staying in the cheap seats in a drive thru with 30 amps and water spent a couple of night, and did a dump there when we left. They have a new lockable dump cover that you have to get the code to use or pay $15. Apparently they don't charge you to use it if you stay there. The bathrooms were clean as were the showers. The showers had plenty of hot water and good pressure. Verizion MiFi worked fine. It looks like they have wifi available but we didn't look into that. As long as they are still PA it will be a great deal. We'd stay here again. One thing to think about is you might not want to be there when they are having stock car races it may bet a bit loud, dusty, and crowded. The track is right next to the rv park. (just a few feet away from one side of the park) We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hot springs to soak, spa's to be pampered, wineries to settle your nerves, petrified redwoods that look just like the live ones, a brewery tucked in among all the wineries without wine snobs and there's a few wineries and tasting rooms in the area. Several are within easy walking distance. Dinning down town is pretty good too.

We have stayed here several times over the past few years primarily because of it's proximity to downtown Calistoga and the 9 hole golf course right next door. Over the years, it appears that nothing has been improved other than some new signs and trash can holders! What used to be gravel sites are now 90% dirt and the "paved" access roads are pretty poor. I guess letting it get run down and raising the rates to a ridiculous level makes sense to someone! They even charge $2.00 a day for our poodle. We won't be returning again unless rates come back down and improvements are made.

We thought about sitting outside (in the dirt) , but we would have only been a couple of feet away from our neighbors sewer hose!

This location is killer. I would think that some investment in the property would pay for itself and attract more repeat visitors. Unfortunately, I suspect this place is just another example of a poorly managed public entity. Too bad.

Note: If you are in a tall RV, be aware that most of the neighborhood streets have VERY low hanging branches. From the main drag in town, Lincoln St, go north on Fair Way to the end. Turn right on Oak then left into the park a block down. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is located in downtown Calistoga, so the best thing about it is the location: can walk a few blocks to all of downtown (supermarket/restaurants/shops). It is a very dusty, dirt parking lot. Good utilities, no picnic tables, clean restrooms. No laundry facilities. There is a nearby "dog park" offered, but it is an embarrassment the city should be ashamed of: a worn-out fenced are full of high weeds and all kinds of burrs. Convenient location for visiting local wineries, basically the only game in town or the surrounding area. Despite that, we will not be back, there are other areas to visit. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

As others have said, this place is all about location. It's a big parking lot with sites really close together. But it's in the perfect location to explore Napa/Sonoma wine country, and, as near as I could determine, it's the only game in town except a couple state parks that you have to reserve way in advance to be sure you can get in. We did reserve here, but only a few days ahead of time, and there were plenty of E&W sites available. The FHU sites seemed to be mostly filled with longer term campers. The restroom and showers were clean and the showers were spacious with plenty of hot water and pressure. There was also a chair of some sort in both of the ladies' showers and hooks and shelves in the shower itself for your products which is something I find sorely lacking in many RV park shower rooms. The prices vary from a low for the E & W sites during the week to a high for the FHU sites on weekends. I thought they were reasonable (for California!). he one thing I would caution about is that it is part of the Napa County Fairgrounds. If it's a race weekend at the speedway or County Fair weekend or some other event, all bets are probably off so you might want to check the event schedule ahead of time and make reservations in advance. We really appreciated that it's only about eight blocks to the center of Calistoga with a bunch of shops and restaurants so we could walk there for dinner and not have to move our truck camper rig. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Truck Camper.

If you're sick of wine by now, the Hydro Bar & Grill has a really good craft beer menu and Bosko's Trattoria has a pretty good selections too. Both places had great food at a fairly reasonable price.

Rate reflects Passport America for 4 days. Nice quiet park in a beautiful area. The bathrooms have been renovated since we were last there and then are now doing some landscaping in the "premium" sites. Poor water pressure is the norm in all of the sites that we have used. Within walking distance to the downtown area. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America (Sun thru Thu) for W/E pull thru site. The discount makes this one unbeatable value for Napa Valley.

This is a gravel field with a few trees. Be careful when pulling into your site. Some poles where you don't want to have them. Sites are level and hookups in good order. Sites are very close to each other. No fire ring, no picnic table, no privacy. Pretty quiet at night. Only a short walk to the grocery store and restaurants on the quaint main street.

We will be back, but only when the PA-rate is available and only during shoulder season. We can't imagine staying here, when the park is full. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is Passport during the week. Weekends are $40/night. The park is clean and level and is located right in town. A 5-10 minute walk to get to the quaint main street, lots of shopping and restaurants. This town is very quiet and peaceful. We stayed here for 4 nights. Lots of space at each site.

Location is everything about this park. It is the only RV park north of Napa that is big rig friendly and has 50 amps. The sites are barren, just gravel, but they are level & clean. It is a super location for visiting the north Napa Valley. I do not know about the restrooms. I recommend making reservations far in advance for the 50 amp sites as it is a very busy place. There are 30 amp no sewer sites that are usually available during the week. You can walk to downtown to shopping & dining, if you wish. We have stayed here many times. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

They have done some nice upgrades to the park, new restrooms, and cleaned things up quite a bit. They indicated more to come. One tip we learned is if you want a picnic table, they will bring it to your campsite for $10. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

If you call, do not expect a call back until after 24 hours. The phone goes directly to voice mail -- it is NEVER answered. No one works in the office. A list of 70+ sites with arrival and departure dates is posted on the door. Bring your calendar and pen to do the process of elimination and expect to spend 30 minutes doing it. The park is adjacent to a neighborhood whose residential streets are required to access. The tree-lined streets have many low hanging branches that WILL hit everything on top of your coach. Sunday-Thursday rates are $5 less than Friday/Saturday which are $40 (30 amp) and $45 (50 amp). They charge $2 per pet per day, too. We found the park overpriced, under-managed and much too inconvenient. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.
