Nice

We visited last year during the virus so restrooms and some other amenities we cannot rate.  Do not go in early least you pay a $10 fee.  They do maintain the grounds so an early arrival is not good.  The dog runs were good.

Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets

Cozy campsites, family vibes. Nice brisk walk to the beach. This is the kind of beach for you if you like long walks and poetry. Doggies love it too.

Fantastic Escape

We had been wanting to check out skyline wilderness Park for quite some time. Thanks to recently purchasing a much more updated tent trailer (our previous one was 27 years old and VERY limited), we decided it was high time to take our “fancy” trailer to the fancy town of Napa.

We weren’t sure what to expect at first. It seemed rather gravelly and parking lot-ish. But, looks can be deceiving. Once we pulled into our spot, we were awed by the beautiful scenery, the gnarled oak trees and the serenity.

The toilet facilities were immaculate (and smelled really good!), the trails made for some excellent walks, the children loved the native garden, the dogs enjoyed frolicking in the dog run, and we loved hearing the wild turkeys gobble at night!

We were only there for two nights so we didn’t really get to check out all that SWP offers but we will definitely keep it on our short list when we’re looking for a getaway to recharge.

Literally best campground I've stayed at.

My brother and I hit up this spot during our road trip down the coast. Absolutely beautiful, nice staff, great facilities, and super affordable. I will totally go back.

Excellent stay

This regional park campground ensures less competition for a site than state parks and is well worth it. Surrounded by thick redwoods, trails run off every campsite. Close proximity to neighboring sites, but numbers are so limited right now due to covid there were only two other parties staying here the night we stopped. Incredibly clean and well maintained grounds. Spacious coin operated showers, dark restrooms with flushing toilets, the highlight for us was definitely the sense of being submerged in nature while really only a short shoot off the main road. Curious raccoons come close at night and there are some very cool tent sites to walk out to that definitely get hit with the coastal breeze and road noise. The cool trees around those sites almost make up for that fact

Missed out

We wanted to stop here based on previous reviews but it was unfortunately closed

Highly recreational

Agree with previous reviews that it’s best suited for RV camping. Spacious beach, cozy neighbors, consistent traffic, excellent sunset with shockingly beautiful waves

Peaceful dune walks

We stayed here for a night at the tail end of a December California adventure before flying out of SFO the next day. We wanted to get close enough to the city that the morning drive in wouldn’t be too taxing, while also sleeping beachside one last night. This location accomplished the task and made for an interesting close to a fairly remote trip. We camped on the jetty facing the water, so the view helped. But sites are very close and very packed in. With little to no cover from plant life, you will want to be prepared to be seen at all times. Benefit—gentle dunes covered in succulents lead the way to the waterside where there’s a long stretch for walking punctuated with benches. And if you’re able to get to them at night, the dunes offer a fairly beautiful view of the stars. Coin operated showers connected openly to the restrooms, plenty of nearby towns for supplies, group fire pit areas near the restrooms and host—don’t forget to reserve in advance and expect a line during the check in process

Ritchey Campground in Bothe-Napa Valley park

Great place to stay at when visiting the Napa wine valley that is halfway between St Helena and Calistoga, two nice tourist towns. There are nice hiking trails in the park though they are closed currently (Dec 2020) due to the fire in the area. There was no damage to the campground even though the fire burned into the grounds. The weekends usually are full, it clears out Sunday evening so during the weekdays it is really nice. Staff are really nice. Be careful of the poison oak, it is prevalent there as it is so anywhere in Northern California.

Ocean Cove is one of our favorites

Ocean Cove is a private campground right off Highway one. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they also own the grocery store across from the campsites. The prices are good and it is very family friendly (including dogs). We try to get here once a year if possible. The views of the Pacific from the bluffs are just beautiful, and there are plenty of places to explore a short distance from the campgrounds. There are port-a-potties, coin operated showers, boat launch, fish cleaning station and potable water available. Tent, Trailer, or RV are welcome here.
