California wine country recommendations

We're thinking of starting our fall trip in the California wine country this year. While we have been there before, we stayed at the Petaluma KOA, nice, but we hope someone may know about a nice resort type RV park in the area. We have been unable to find one in our online research.

There's a nice one up in Windsor, CA. We didn't stay there but used their dump. We usually stay at the Petaluma Elks when in that area since it's close to SFO too.

I live here and I don't know of any "Resort type Parks" anywhere in this area. The KOA is probably the best in the area but also the highest priced. There are a number of other options at lower prices but no Resorts.

Napa County Fairgrounds has an RV park, not a resort for sure.
But if you are into wine tasting & RV parking, try 49er Village in Plymouth CA. Its a great park, not in the Napa/Sonoma wine range but the Sierra Foothills wine region. Lots of great wine tasting & a great park.

FREE RV Overnites at Wineries and Farms

What could be better than a free overnight stop at a winery. See the country and stay each night at a different winery for free. Check out: Free RV Camping At Wineries and Farms
OR you can shop for some 2 buck chuck [$2 wine] at Walmart and stay overnight in their lot for free.

RV Park Northern California | RV Park Sacramento CA | Jackson Rancheria is a very nice RV Park in the Plymouth / Jackson area. They have some incredible wines in the area!

We are leaving from Grass Valley, where we are spending most of August on the kids farm, Plymouth will make a nice day trip during our summer there, so thanks for the tip. Grass valley and Nevada county have some nice wines as well.

But for the fall we are headed up the Oregon coast and want a short stop in the north bay to ease the drive.

Have you been to Bodega Bay? Two nice RV Parks to choose from:
Porto Bodega Marina & RV Park or Bodega Bay RV Park

They are not RV Resorts but they are both nice. You can drive to many of the wineries in about an hour.

For a comparison stop, you might want to spend a couple of days in Paso Robles. Amazing number of wineries in the area.
