Camping in Napa/Sonoma Area

Hello, We are planning a three week camping trip from Vancouver, BC to the Napa Valley and Sonoma area. Our plan is to camp, hike, visit a couple of wineries and see some interesting sights. We are wondering if anyone has some suggestions for any of these plans and nice campsites along the way and when we are down there. We like dry camping or hookups but our preference are the more natural settings. Thanks!

Wine Country

Camped at Skyline last spring. Real nice rural setting. Still very close to the heart of wine country. Almost on the Silverado trail, which is the main road through wine country. Rode our bikes from camp up to Yountville to go to Thomas Kellers Bouchon bakery. About 30 miles round trip. Well worth it. Get there real early for the best doughnuts. Wine valley expo much closer to town, but very urban. Nice if you like parking lots. Lots of hiking right in the Skyline park. If you have dogs you will have to leave them in the trailer. Many vineyards to check out. Meant no dogs on the trails in Skyline park. Ok in camping area.

Hey BC,
Sounds like Mexray has some good spots to camp around that area. I do not know how much time you have. However I would suggest after your Napa/Sanoma tour head over to the coast for more wineries, breweries. Don't forget the hot springs around Calistoga. Try a website for California State Parks California State Parks. This is a good one for National Forrest camping. Campground Directory and National Forest Campgrounds. Man are you going to have some fun.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. This will be our first big trip with our Airstream. We are looking forward to exploring various areas throughout the U.S. and Canada during our annual holidays until we are retired....then we'll hitch up and just go!

Napa Valley Expo

We stayed at the Napa Valley Expo RV Park a couple of nights ago while in town to visit my sister.

It is a nice little park with basic amenities, level concrete pads and a generous amount of space between neighbors. Nightly rate is exactly $32 with AAA/Good Sam discount. I’ve attached a couple of pictures for reference.

Its main draw is the fact that it is near downtown Napa and at ground zero for visiting the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Hope this helps.
