Park is mainly for permanents and they are located in two different areas of the park. Up front there are a handful of spaces available for travelers. There is one pull thru (space 17). Half the sites are concrete, the rest gravel. Spaces have great views of the mountains and valley and there are lots of trees. Interior roads are paved. Road into park is steep with a couple of sharp turns but was not a problem if you take it slow. Trees were not a factor, nor were they in the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is free and worked great during our stay. Highly recommend getting space 17, pull through, for the great view and the ability to use satellite TV. Very close to a great wine tasting region. This is a nice little park that I would recommend. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park entrance is a steep switchback road to it. Doable but low hang tree branches and bushy trees brushed the sides of our rig and it was a maneuver to dodge those heavy duty branches above. We Read the reviews before calling the park, so we were prepared for the steep entrance but the trees (based on another review) were kept trimmed by the owner. We have a 43' Motor Home and asked if they had a site to accommodate this large of a rig, Yes we where told, a pull in site. The pull in site would have maybe fit a 34-36' on the concrete pad. the rear end of our rig stuck out about 8'. Warning, do not try to get in there after dark, the branches/trees can not be seen. It was very quiet and peaceful for adult enjoyment. We visited Lake Sonoma and Healdburg, a darling wine tasting mecca. Found a tiny Gourmet Mexican restaurant in the strip mall next to Safeway that was beyond superb Beautiful scenery if you take a walk around the park that are very steep roads but none from the over night sites. We feel we were lied to about the size of a site for a Big Rig. The only discount we got was 5% Military. They didn't take Good Sam or Escapees. We will never go back . We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

There are only about 9 sites available for short term rental. About half have concrete pads. Ours, probably usually reserved for the park manager, was just awesome! The others range from good to great. Traveling with a friend? One very large, beautiful buddy site is available. The challenge to this park is the relatively steep switchback road to it. We elected to disconnect the dinghy. Next time we will do that in front of MGM brake, next to the Shell station at the next offramp north. Also, our rig is very tall. Navigating thru the trees in & out of the neighborhood leading to the park as carefully as I could, I still made contact with a few branches. As long as the coach wasn't damaged (and it was not), it was worth it. We found a lot to do in the area but mostly enjoyed just staying at this beautiful site. Nothing for kids to do here, but it is a great place for adults to spend time just sitting around the rig soaking up the beautiful, quiet scenery. Very nice park managers. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For a first time visit, if in a motorhome, take the dinghy up first to sign in. This will reassure you that the initially intimidating hill is very manageable.

Park manager met us outside after office hours and escorted us to a site (17) with a tremendous view of the Anderson valley. This park is on top of a hill with a very steep approach with 2 switchback turns in. Do not let this bother you, it is doable with any rig. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

visit the many wineries nearby. Enjoy the old Healdsburg downtown square with its quaint shops.

We found this campsite through rvparkreviews, and we're very happy we did! The managers were extremely friendly and helpful. The drive from 101 to the campground was very easy,

yes you travel through a small neighborhood and go up a fairly steep driveway that is by the way very wide. We had absolutely no problems and when you get to the top the view is wonderful! Lots of space and options for turning. This campground is under new ownership and new management so do not be turned off by older reviews.

This is a very small park and reservations are highly suggested. We were very frustrated while traveling South on 101 looking for a place to stay in the Napa/Santa Rosa areas. We read review after review and became very concerned for where we would stay. Always using RV Park Reviews we stumbled across reviews about this park. At first reading about the road to get to the park and the steep grade (hill, well actually side of a mountain) was disconcerting to say the least. Actually, with good reason when you first begin the trek but we made it without problems in our 40' RV with tow. And wow were we glad we did. What a drop dead gorgeous view of the Alexander Valley and all its glory. If fact, we extended our stay for two more nights just to enjoy the view and surrounding wine country. Management was very attentive to the guest and although the park does have full time residents they are in a totally different section of the park. We stayed in space 14. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this park a lot. It was convenient to the freeway, and the drive in was not a problem at all, through a very green neighborhood and up a curved driveway. Everything was beautifully cared for. We were in site 17, a pull-through with a lovely valley view out one side, and the very nice pool out the other. There is an old stone fish pond by the pool and plenty of comfortable poolside seating. The manager was as nice as any we have ever encountered. This place shows a lot of care and attention on the part of the management and we found it to be an excellent, quiet, scenic place to stay. We will return.

Finding parks parks with access for 45' motorhome in the Napa/Sonoma area is limited mostly due to public road access. California DOT limits a lot of the local roads to 40' or less without a tow. Butcher Creek is right off the 101 and although the access road is via neighborhoods, the owners of the park regularly trim trees . Their private access road although steep is very navigable even with a tow. Once you get up you're in a little gem of an RV resort. the overnighters circle the pool, and giant trees provide some shade but not total. Access / maneuverability in park where nightly/weekly spots are are easy to get into. 50 amps reliable. Satellite is sketchy due to trees but tried twice to connect and second time found all satellite connections. Wi-Fi strong and reliable and free. Local shopping about mile away in Cloverdale. The Healdsburg area of wineries is about 10 miles away but no parks there especially for 45'. Would stay here again when in the area.

Very nice little RV park up on a hill. The sites are right by the sparkling pool. The camp managers, were the nicest managers we have met. One went above and beyond helping us get a satellite signal with our tailgater. Lots to do and see in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Beware of a very steep hill on drive up to park. They could not find our reservation so they squeezed us into a very tight space around the pool area. Extremely difficult to back in a 35 foot trailer. There was no privacy as trailers were virtually on top of each other. Promised us a picnic bench, but never delivered. Park has several levels and all the really nice spots taken by the regulars. Lovely views is about all I can say that is good. Will not stay here again.

Looks like you're lost, but follow the directions. It's up a steep hill with a big curve but no problem with 35' & toad. Nice fellow running it. Fairly level, gravel sights. Just overnighted but a great view from where they sit. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We reserved site 17, a pull-through, for our 35' 5th wheel. Check-in staff was curt at best, bordering on rude. The older fellow who followed us to our site turned out to be the same person who allowed his gray poodle to defecate throughout the park and didn't pick up the proceeds! Campground rule #2: Dogs must be picked up after. Apparently that only applies to outsiders. The restrooms/showers were not cleaned even once during our 5 day, mid-summer stay, which prompted immediate empathy and even pity for those campers who did not have adequate facilities in their RVs.

Very quiet park, kind of scary driving in. If your not familiar with the park, your not certain your going the right direction. Keep going, you will be fine. Internet Wi-Fi was the best I've ever seen in a park. Was able to stream video from the internet. Verizon cell phone worked great as well. Shower and bathrooms were clean, a few bugs but that does not bother me. I would return here. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

OK for an overnight but we were very disappointed to arrive after nine hours of travel to find they had given away our pre-paid pull-through site. We were given a site that was too small for our rig so the back of our trailer hung over the edge of the hill. We were unable to set our jacks or level our trailer so it made for a rocky night. The restrooms needed a good cleaning to get rid of the cobwebs and dirt. It has a pretty little pool that looked refreshing. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Dutcher Creek over July 4th, a spontaneous booking 2 days before. We have a 40ft coach so they gave us the pull through opposite the pool looking out at the valley. Despite many permanent residents the park is very clean, quiet, and well kept. We really didn't see anyone except the camp host ( a very nice man) and some other overnighters. Wi-fi worked well. Pool was clean. Site was gravel and our dogs got a bit dirty - we will now buy a camping mat. We biked to Lake Sonoma, 6.1 miles to the hatchery and wine tasted on the way back. A great location in wine country for a couple of nights. We camped at Dutcher Creek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
