6 Parks near Napa, California
Jul 2012 - $30.00
This camp ground is rustic and not very well kept. Example cigarette butts and beer bottle caps everywhere. Each site has a new concrete picnic table as well as a fire pit/BBQ. It was very busy and kind of loud at night. I brought my boat $21 extra fee and my dog $5 a day extra fee. This is dry camping with no amenities at all. On the plus side, you have lake front spots and a nice view. I had site#100 with a little shade in the a.m. and was able the get satellite without a problem. - Tony T

This is a very nice, small, private (Elk members only) campground incredibly near downtown Napa, California with lots of convenient shopping nearby (e.g., Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc...) The location provides an excellent jumping off place to explore all of Napa Valley and at $25 a night for a full hookup campsite the price cannot be beat. The sites are small but typical for a private campground and very level. The area is very clean and quiet. The Napa River Trail (7 mile walk/bike/run) runs right along the rear of the campground and can be accessed via a locked gate. This is the best value we've seen yet in California and to have it in the heart of wine country makes this a real gem. They do not take reservations and when we arrived on a Monday in early November, there were only three other RV's so we could choose from nine other sites. If you get here and the place is full, they will let you spend the night in the parking lot so you can make other arrangements or wait for a vacancy. As a back-up, check out the Calistoga RV park (it's a county fair park about 28 miles up the road.) - User3589

This Elks lodge campground is available only to Elk members. There are 12 sites located behind the lodge. Four sites have 50 amp and the others have 30 amp. Full hookups. Nicely landscaped sites but close together and fairly unloved. Only a few sites can accommodate rigs over 40 feet. First-come, first-serve with no reservations. Full on most weekends but midweek it is easier to get a site. There is a 14 day limit which is strictly enforced. Great place to stay while touring Napa. - lmg

This is an Elks Lodge, so camping is only available to current Elks members. You go into the Lodge, sign in and then talk to the bartender about whether there are any spaces available. She signs you up and reviews your membership card. This lodge had their RV spaces behind the lodge with a code enabled gate. There were 12 spots. Even though the signage said cars should be parked on the north side of the building, everyone seemed to park their car in front of their RV. We have a small motorhome but I could see where some of the larger rigs could have a difficult time navigating around the vehicles. Supposedly, if all of the spots are filled, they will let you dry camp in their front lot. The lot is large and very level. There is a very nice walking trail directly behind the campsite. The lodge is about 1.7 miles from downtown Napa where there are loads of wonderful places to eat. - WinnebagoTraveler

If you are looking for primitive style dry-camp this may be the place for you. I had site #103 just above the water. I was in a 26 Foot C Class but a much longer rig would fit on this site. Be careful which site you reserve as many will not fit a motor home even though they say they will. (I went in my car ahead of time to pick a site.) My site was fairly level with fire pit and picnic table. No other amenities at this park. No running water or flush toilets, but they say they are coming. I was able to get my satellite easily. - Tony T

At this point, this facility is dry camping only--there are not even water faucets in the campground. There are some clean portal-potty's available. Other than that, the campground staff is friendly and helpful, the sites are well maintained and level, and have new picnic tables and fire rings. Most sites are lakefront. A big launch ramp is available for boats. Hook-ups are planned for the future. - morganhillers

This is a great RV park for boating and fishing and is right on the marina of Lake Berryessa in Napa. It is located right on the water with a fair number of sites on the waterfront. There are a number of spots that offer good shade, but many of the sites do not have any cover. Basically a parking lot right next to the waterfront, but it is convenient for those who are using the lake for recreational boating. Each site has a BBQ and picnic table, but no fire pits. Guests may use their guest slips on a first come first serve basis or you can rent your own slip at a minimal cost at the marina. They also have a pool and a swim/picnic area. During the peak season, there is a restaurant and an ice cream shop on site within a 10 min walk. Right next to the marina there is a general store and a snack shop. This is our campground of choice when we go to Lake Berryessa. - tagalongwife

Big level concrete pads, grass strips and no trees. This RV park is very well located within walking distance of central Napa. The Wi-Fi service was decent. The service friendly and diligent. All utilities were good - especially sewer. There are two sewer access caps for each site, one toward front center and one near back center, so it's easy to attach for the one that works best for your rig. The other patrons were very quiet and respectful. There were a couple families like mine, but mostly the park served retired folks with very large rigs. The park was even able to add one more day to my stay during this peak period. I was grateful and would happily stay there again. In fact, I suspect I'll return within the next 6 months. - SeaTeacher

Spots are close together but the place is clean and neat. There is no cable, despite the listing here on rvparkreviews. WiFi is fair but speed limited. - Tiny Beast

In general we liked the Napa Expo RV Park a lot, we even extended our stay after arriving. The sites have a decent amount of space between them and our back-in site had a lot of grassy space behind it which was great for our dogs. We had read reviews about grumpy camp hosts but everyone we interacted with was helpful. The $50 rate ($45 with Good Sam) is "all-in", i.e. there's no sales tax, room tax, tourism tax, or similar, which makes this a pretty good deal. Many of the other campgrounds we've stayed at recently in the San Francisco area had taxes as high as 12% on top of the campground fee. Our only complaint is the road noise from Silverado Trail, especially from the back-in sites which are closest to the road. Often the road noise is barely noticeable, but frequently throughout the day people seem to drive very loud motorcycles and extremely loud "classic" sports cars up and down the road which became very annoying quickly. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the entrance to the campground is designed to only allow entry when you're driving south on Silverado Trail. Since we were coming from San Francisco, we were headed north and had to enter through the exit lane. Similarly, when leaving the campground, you can only head South on Silverado. We'd stay here again. - LifeRebooted

Let me start by expressing we were not expecting a resort with a swimming pool and concrete pads, paved roads etc.
We parked in our space and the people next to us had trash spread everywhere. We were in space 39, they were in 37. They use spaces 38 and 36 for parking their extra vehicles. The rules state that extra vehicles must be parked in the main parking lot. So is this the park's fault. Nope. Here is where this place fails. We paid for a week. Nothing changed. Nobody from the park cared that the people in space 37 made a pig sty of their space and the ones around it. There is a gated code entrance between the hours of 7PM and 8AM. They must not have changed the code for some time because waves of people come and go at night, some to use the shower, some come set up and abruptly leave at 6 AM. There is no after hours check in, so they are just taking advantage of the fact that this park has NO host. The staff were polite but just shrugged off my concerns. The bathroom and showers were very disgusting. Someone had left a pair of soiled underwear in one of the showers. That was there ALL WEEK we were here. Another shower stall is missing the shower head, same story, never fixed. It is hard to get hot water no matter what time of the day because of the transient traffic using the showers and bathrooms. Trash overflows. It is indeed close to Napa. The staff were very polite and kind, but did not care when I shared about the poopy underwear in the shower stall, or the trash all around. - Michele Rene

It is windy and dusty, but that is part of camping, right? Gate to park closes early and it is so quiet at night. This is a county park that has RV sites. Not a RV park. There are some very fine hikes right from the campground. It worked for our needs at the time, but oh the dust...
I would choose another location next time. - Elmo and Gracie

This is a wilderness park the spaces with full hookups are fairly close but set as to still have a little privacy and to be able to use slides and awnings.
The management at the check in are very nice and try to be accommodating. The maintenance employee is lacking in doing a good job of cleaning the sites and the restrooms which are old and makes it difficult to clean good but can still be done.
Pets are allowed but the pet run is poor and you are not allowed to take pets on the trails due to the deer, turkeys and other wildlife in the park.
Hookups are good and is a little tight getting into some parks but u have to remember this is not a resort so don't expect one.
It is only a few miles to downtown and to groceries and other stores for shopping.
Have stayed here several times when visiting family and will stay again as it is the best place in the area. There is a 2 wk limit. The roads are gravel, there are partial hook ups that have some grass. - Gogo3xgogo

This park will be closing July 13. Very minimal hookups. We dried camp in our RV. Convenient place for launching your boats. Dusty dirty camping. Obnoxious loud foul mouthed campers. People above us were wasted. A few had fallen and rolled down the hill and some were puking right above us. Not a place to bring your kids due to some of the choice words our fellow trashy campers used. Not a peaceful quiet stay at all. A lot of drunk people throughout. Loud and inconsiderate. Some were kicked out at 4:00am for fighting. Security could not keep up having to warn campers to quiet down. Paid in full during reservation and we were told that 2 cars per spot. Not true and charged us extra for 2nd vehicle. Hopefully the new owners will clean up the place. It needs major updating. Overall too much riff raff and the staff are clueless. The nice thing is that we were able to keep our generators on longer since no one else was respecting the quiet time. We were also off away from most. Could be a descent park if there was a way to weed out the lowlifes. Maybe if this was mostly an RV park it would be better. - cbettex
