About Vallejo

Vallejo, situated on the northeastern shore of the San Pablo Bay, was the capital of California on two separate occasions. After the Capitol building burned down in the late 1800s, state legislators were sent about an hour northeast to Sacramento. Vallejo is a popular Bay Area sailing and boating town and has a large municipal marina. Each year the town welcomes a slew of festivals and celebrations, from the Northern California Pirate Festival to Mocktoberfest Punk & Edge Arts Festival, and Mad Hatter Holiday Festival, Parade, and Tree Lighting. When passing through the Bay Area, your best bet is to make reservations at campgrounds near Vallejo as early as possible since there are just a few to name.


One of the most popular annual events to roll through Vallejo is the Solano County Fair. The 65-year-old celebration features a carnival, concerts, art exhibits, and dancing. Thanks to the Solano County Fair, Vallejo RV parks are open from April through to October.


That’s not to say that Vallejo is unwelcoming to RVers, but rather, this is a dense, expensive area. Camping in Northern California is actually a great treat. Here are just a few National Parks within driving distance of Vallejo: Yosemite, Sequoia, Big Basin Redwoods State Park, and Point Reyes National Seashore.


Considering Vallejo is literally surrounded by water, it’s not surprising that beach camping is popular here. A couple sites to check out include Sonoma County Regional Parks like Doran park on Bodega Bay and Gualala Point Regional Park adjacent to the Gualala River. At Hood Mountain Regional Park, campers can sleep near Merganser Pond, but this remote setting can only be reached via 2-mile hike from the parking area. Other beach camping sites at Vallejo parks include Spring Lake Park and Stillwater Cove Park. They have coastal campgrounds overlooking the sea.
