While the COVID pandemic and the 2020 fires devastated all three of Napa Valley State Parks, some things have remained constant: the Napa State Parks, including Bale Grist Mill, Bothe-Napa Valley and Robert Louis Stevenson, have continued to serve as an escape and oasis for Napa County residents and tourists seeking fresh air, exercise, hiking, biking, climbing and a place to smile in the sun. The dedicated Parks staff, supported by the Napa Open Space District, have continued caring for these beautiful and historic State Parks, even in the face of wildfire, drought and pandemic challenges over the last few years. The three State Parks, owned by the State of California but reliant solely on local and private funding since 2012, have been an indispensable asset for Napa Valley, the Bay Area and tourists from around the globe.
