Benicia State Recreation Area


Benicia State Recreation Area 

Benicia CA 94510


One of the best places to spend a mellow weekend is Benicia State Recreation Area! RV camping is only $12 a night; there's water, but no electrical or waste hookups, so you must have your own toilet. During the day, the 3 RV spots become group picnic areas, so campers have to move by 9am and can come back to claim a spot at 4pm. This means you can't really settle into a spot for the weekend, but there are plenty of great places to park your RV and enjoy the day elsewhere in the park. The whole place is always kept clean including the restrooms, there are tons of trash cans that get changed daily, this is just a great park overall. Highly recommend.

 Bike-friendly, dog-friendly, pedestrian-friendly. Beautiful views of the Strait and surrounding hills. So close to town and yet so natural and uncommercial. Go often and enjoy. Would highly recommend this place.

Can't beat the scenery, separated bike path and people with pets path. Only slight dislike is not allowing to let pet run vast empty field. If owner is secured and knows his pets personality of being social with people, kids, and other dogs. Let his or her dog run freely as long as owner take ownership by watching his or her pet. Freedom of movement, other than that it’s awesome.

This is an amazing place to go. Going to the end of park and back is exactly 10 miles round trip. Good place to have a picnic. There is a native plants garden walk. Fishing down by the water at the end of the park. You can drive in and park for a fee. We use the local boat launch near this park but the park is gorgeous, have a view to die for, lots of green grassy areas and a very nice sheltered beach (when the wind is not coming right at you). Just beautiful!
