Use to go here years ago. You would pull up, everyone would make a big circle with their campers and it was on. Now it’s all roped off, spaces are painted on the grass, tent campers have a separate area… blah blah blah. They’re completely being directed by the coastal state committees. I get it…
This place is magical. We rode our bikes around the vineyards and enjoyed every single moment. Would come back next time for sure.
We are beginning our search for a place to camp using a tent and driving in with car. We are looking for running water and bathroom use. This place so far is right. Will be continued....
This park is close to downtown Napa and the wineries but feels like it’s out further. It has nice hiking with beautiful views of the vineyards and the city of Napa. The park itself, however, could use a little TLC. ￼ The restrooms and showers are clean and well-maintained but there are only four…
I've camped here about half a dozen times over the years and while each experience has been different, they were all enjoyable and I would easily return again.
There are a variety of campsites, and they are many - we camp as close to the ocean as possible in the meadow area. There are…
Super close to everyone. Also weird how many Porta-podies right across every site. Lots of people. Kinda expensive.

This is still a cool spot. Great beach access, fishing, crabbing, boat launch, etc. but it used to be so much better. The sites are super close together and the layout could be better.
Most spots are pull throughs with full hookups. Trash and recycling pick up every couple of days. Short walk (~10-15mins) to get to restaurants and wineries downtown as well as the Napa Valley Vine Trail for running/cycling. The expo center is being used as a COVID testing center as well as a food…
We stayed in the spur of the campground, the views to the front of us were amazing! Then right behind us there was an incredible never ending hill covered in ferns and tall trees, and grey fox dens because we had a gorgeous one visit our camp! We had a ton of shade and enough sun to warm up, it was…

This was Part 2 of a "Test My Gear Close to Home" camping experience. It's close enough to the wine country aspects of Napa to be an easy overnight without the excruciating Napa Valley hotel prices. Google doesn't like finding the entrance, but I got the street address off the website and…

Great family campground with many trails around. Very clean amenities, great park rangers. All sites have a fire ring and picnic table. Definitely recommend!
Convenient location. Just outside of San Francisco above the beach. Premium sites all washed out. Nothing more than an asphalt parking lot. We paid over $100 to be up against the road as far from the beach as possible. So disappointing.
Nice place to eat within walking distance but make reservations on a weekend. WiFi. Showers. Spots are close together but the drive here is amazing. Openings on a Saturday night.
This place was perfect for our first trip in our new rv! Good level spots, water and electricity worked great. It’s close to some very nice restaurants. Easy drives to amazing beaches. Fresh oysters about 30 min away. So much more we could have done. Definitely planning another trip to Elmo!

I run and walk dogs there and love it but it's day use only.
