If you are a bike rider, don't miss the Dry Creek area near Healdsburg -- very pretty, quiet, great Zinfandels.

there 2 places in Napa to stay at, that have hookups.

Napa Valley Expo has newly-reconditioned sites. it's a couple of blocks from the Wine train and 3 blocks from downtown Napa. it's also next to the Silverado Trail, which is the best road to see the Valley,

if you want any recommendations for visiting Napa Valley, send me a PM.


BIKENDAN, now you are talking... I have been to Sonoma(not RV) so the thought of going back to Napa & Sonoma blows my mind.

I will defintely PM you, when I'm ready.. BTW: My Son lives in OC and is a Wine Rep for Chambers & Chambers..

Be Safe


Have a wonderful day..

I 2nd the Wine Country RV in Paso Robles. It's a great place to stay and many wineries in the area. It's a beautiful, well maintained RV park.

Further south is the Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez Wineries. You could stay at Lake Cahuma (state campground) and enjoy the wineries in that area. While there you may also want to take the car and tour the Santa Barbara and Solvang areas.

Yet further south again is the Temecula Wine region. There are two great places to stay. You could stay at Vail Lake Resort, which is right in the wine country. Upper Chardonnay sites have large grass area and trees. Lower sites are in dirt but have lots of trees. The other option is to stay at the Pechenga Indian Reservation Casino RV Park, a short drive from the wineries. These are asphalt sites with a grass strip in between. The casino has 7 restaurants and top entertainment. They run a free shuttle from the RV area to the casino, which is quite nice.

Temecula is probably an hour North of San Diego, should you decide to take in the sites in San Diego. In San Diego I'd recommend Chula Vista RV resort. This is a top notch place. It's on the ocean and very clean.

We have toured all 3 areas extensively.

Calistoga Fairgrounds, add my vote. I very much enjoy that end of the valley. The Napa end is way too built up.
