Tucked in between the Cedar Roughs and the Blue Ridge and just about two hours away from San Francisco lies Lake Berryessa, a popular attraction among California’s motorhome camping community. With over 20000 acres in size, this currently seventh-largest lake in California is loaded with fun activities for the whole family. If you’re the kind of person who likes to see the world through wine glasses, the lake is situated just a short drive away from the rolling hills of the wine rich Napa Valley. Do magnificent views, world-class wine, and tasty food define the things you want while on an outdoor adventure? If so, search for an RV in Napa County, and make memories hopping from one region to another.
Make a list of things to do when camping in an RV in Lake Berryessa. Boasting of more than 15 miles in length and about 165 miles of shoreline, the lake is regarded as California’s ‘best-kept secret’ due to its endless fishing and boating opportunities. Rent a camper near Lake Berryessa for a peaceful getaway with nature away from the hassles of city life in Sacramento and Santa Rosa.
As you continue out into the vast outdoors, take this chance to cross Glory Hole, the world’s largest morning glory spillway, off your bucket list. Situated just next to Monticello Dam, Glory Hole is a must-see. Even though it is not approachable via boat or swimming due to obvious safety reasons, there is a spectacular lookout point just next to the lake along a hiking trail.
Speaking of hiking trails, the trail in question is Stebbins Cold Canyon trail which leads avid hikers along a steep, challenging course along the California Coast Range. Due to the diverse topography, you’ll be meeting a wide range of species as you hike along. Keep in mind that dogs aren’t allowed on the trail and be sure to carry extra water, especially in the hot months.
It would be impossible to end this list without a mention of the endless fishing opportunities in the enormous lake. The lake is home to a variety of both cold and warm water fish including all kinds of bass, catfish, and trout. If you’re in search of King Salmon, drop a line in Markley Cove and hope for the best. The lake is great for beginner anglers thanks to its abundance of sunfish. Be sure to pick a California fishing license at the marina to keep out of trouble.
Whether you’re a fan of the good old boondocking or prefer fully stocked RV parks, there is something for everyone at Lake Berryessa. The Canyon Creek Resort is worth considering if you’re in search of comfort. Apart from having full hookups on generously allocated pull-thru sites, the campground comes complete with WiFi, a pool, and river waterfront access. The nearby town of Winters is a nice place to restock on groceries when camping here.
If you prefer to set your campervan by the lake, check out the Putah Creek Resort which is situated along the northern shores of the lake. The kid-friendly campground has electric, water, and sewer hookups. Guests also get access to a boat ramp and a secure place to tie boats by the water. Don’t worry about your furry friends as dogs are allowed.
Situated right in between Santa Rosa and Sacramento, you’ll have a lot of stuff to see before heading out in your rental RV for more adventures. Even before venturing into the big cities, treat yourself to a wonderful afternoon in Napa hopping from one vineyard to another along Highway 29. If you’re a staunch teetotaler, the nearby Chardonnay Golf Club offers three different 9-hole courses set on an expansive oil painting of a landscape.
After having a good time in Napa, point your travel trailer towards Santa Rosa, home of the Peanuts cartoon. The Charles M. Schulz Museum is set up specifically to remember the work of the legendary cartoonist. If you’re not a fan of cartoons, nothing will quite prepare you at the sheer size of some of California’s oldest and tallest trees at Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve.
It would be a shame to leave without stopping by Sacramento, California’s capital. The local folks take beer seriously with more than 50 craft breweries in the region. Foodies will also marvel at the bustling food scene, so be sure to show up hungry. Some of the cuisines to look forward to are Mexican, Chinese, and even Greek delicacies. Should your taste buds feel patriotic, the city also offers traditional American fare.
