RVing in Napa Valley Wine Country

The Vineyard RV Park is a beautiful park located about 30 minutes from the Napa Valley Wine Country and 1 hour from San Francisco. The property provides a peaceful retreat in a rural country setting. Large trees provide shade and extensive lawns and landscaped areas are well-kept.

The park has 141 full hook-up sites including both large pull-thru sites and deep back in sites. There is a large 60 foot swimming pool on the property that is perfect for cooling off in the warm summer months or you can just sit and relax and enjoy your favorite book. If you need to work from your RV or keep in touch with family and friends on Facebook, the park makes it easy by offering complimentary WIFI for all overnight guests. And don’t forget to bring Fido – dogs are always welcome in the two fenced off-leash dog parks on site.

 While you might choose to just sit by the pool and relax or read by your RV, there are many great activities to take advantage of close to the park. Kids will love the Jelly Belly Factory located just 10 minutes from the park. During the 40-minute walking tour, Jelly Belly tour guides will show you a real working factory where they cook up over 150 different sweet treats. Learn the secrets to how they create the legendary Jelly Belly jelly bean, and discover why it takes more than a week to make a single bean!

Shopping in Napa Valley

Or, you can shop till you drop at the Vacaville Premium Outlets. Peruse stores like Burberry, Gucci and Juicy Couture or stock up on shoes at Converse or Adidas.

If you’ve got a little more time, hit the road and drive over to the world-famous Napa Valley Wine Country which is only 30 minutes from the park. You can enjoy wine tours, tasting rooms, restaurants, spas and gift shops. There’s even an olive oil tasting you can do if you’re not into wine or head over to Sonoma Canopy Tours in Occidental and test your skills on the zip line that reaches speeds of up to 25 miles per hour!

San Francisco is also located less than 60 miles away from the Vineyard RV Park where you can take in all the famous sites of San Francisco, such as Fisherman’s Warf, The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and more. Drive or take the ferry from Vallejo to the Piers of San Francisco.

There is so much to take advantage of in this wonderful area that you’ll want to schedule another trip to the Vineyard RV Park! I know I did!
