We stayed in Yurt #3 which was really cool for our first time yurting! Didn't care for all the traffic noise from Hwy. 29 which is a pretty busy road. Try to stay in the yurts further into the woods. Nice hiking trails! Wood was...More

The only downside to this park is the $8 entrance fee, Robert Louis Stevenson Park is free and more extensive, but it is less convenient to the Napa Valley area.

As we were not able to visit Muir Woods due to the crowds, it was a real treat to walk through Bothe-Napa and see the redwoods in total solitude. We saw only one other group the whole time on the trails. Did Coyote Peak and...More

Bothe Park is a wonderful escape from the ever-increasing traffic and congestion in wine country. Park your car and hit the trails -- away from the noise of Highway 29 and into the peaceful forest past rushing streams and blooming wildflowers in spring, although each...More

It's difficult to label ANY nature hike as "Average." But this is supposed to be a helpful review, and I can't say it was higher than *** . POSITIVES Yes, there are redwood stands. A few minutes past the trailhead, I was "at home" among...More

The Redwood trail is great hike through the trees; went on a Wednesday and it was very private. The Mill was closed so we didn't see that part. Nice temperature this time of year.

After doing the mill the previous day, we wanted a longer hike. This time we went to Bothe-Napa state park. Great 6mi hike. I'd say a medium level hike. Some crossing of streams and some steeper climbs. Good for a 2-3hr morning hike. It's beautiful.

I have read that it gets hot in the yurts, but is this an issue if we are only going to be in them to sleep? We will be going mid July and not sure how much it will cool off in the evening.

I live in the park as a volunteer. I just asked an entry kiosk employee. Tents are not allowed next to the small yurts, which is what #3 is. However, you can rent a larger yurt up in the campground and pitch a tent there... More
