We are 30 minute drive to Napa Valley and 50 miles to the City of San Francisco about 1 hour depending on time of day. Our main tourist attraction in Fairfield is the Jelly Belly candy company.

Tom exceeded our expectations with this visit. Great accommodations for our camper!
Tom was great! He was very helpful for us and understanding with our circumstances. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to have a safe, quiet place to stay.
Host was super friendly. Spot was nice and private. Great experience.
Much needed, perfect overnight stay after a couple of nights of sleep deprivation elsewhere in the SF Bay Area. Very welcoming and accommodating host, thank you so very much! Looking forward to another chance to stay and get to know you better, CaliforniaDreamer!
Bay Area Bliss has done a great job providing level, equipped sites. It feels like you're in the country, but the city is right there beside you. He was very welcoming and great to talk to.
We felt safe and relaxed.
We highly recommend!
This place is why we love Boondockers Welcome! Tom is an excellent host and his place is the best location to stay for a visit to the Bay Area with a big fifthwheel. An easy hour to SF and Oakland (except during commute hours)! He has set up his place for Boondockers Welcome guests with easy access and welcome signs. A nice, quiet place to land!
Our host was welcoming and extremely pleasant!The property is spacious and very convenient. We had an issue with our trailer and he promptly offered his assistance which was greatly appreciated! This is the type of interaction that makes RV’ing a wonderful experience!
Very private and serene. Our Host was very helpful. We saw jackrabbits on the property to my grandkids delight. If you're lucky you might see Tom practicing his golf swing in the field!
Very nice host. We chatted a little here and there during our stay.
Nice level place to park and large grass area to walk the pup.
We cannot say enough good things about this host. His directions were exact and he guided us into the property when we arrived. The site was perfectly level with convenient electric and water hookups. He provides an information sheet with local services that might be needed and checked regularly to make sure we had what we needed. We totally enjoyed the time spent visiting with him and learning more about California. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious host who thought of everything to make our travels comfortable.
We enjoyed staying at this property very much! There was another guest there so we stayed in the overflow parking. The spot was spacious and our stay was pleasant. We explored San Fran and Half Moon Bay!
This is a great host! This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome, and he made it a great experience. He was quick to reply to our last minute request and made us feel welcome from start to finish. The kids and dogs loved playing in the yard as well. Location was just right for us to see San Francisco. We even stayed an extra day. Highly recommend!
We arrived late afternoon and only stayed one night on our way to ultimate destination. Host greeted us and we
had a delightful conversation. The RV site was easy to get in and out of and was level. The area is very nice and
there was a large field for our dog to run in off leash. I would stay there again and I am sure that anybody who does stay at California Dreamer will not be disappointed.
Fantastic stop with so many great moments, I’ll keep it brief! Our host was warm, and understanding as we rolled in a bit after our planned ETA. The area set aside for BW rigs was just fantastic. (I brought my leveler out for no reason when we were setting up, it was so great) The host further checked in to make sure things were going ok, and it made a great base camp for some Bay Area tourism. We would be thrilled to stay with this excellent host again on our travels!
This was our first boondockerswelcome and let’s just say, I don’t know how it gets better than this. The site was easy to find and communication from our host was extremely fast. Our host was super pleasant, made sure we had everything we needed and was always one call away if there were issues (which there were not). We spent our first night in Sonoma and our second in San Francisco. The site provides a nice middle ground for all sorts of activities. We cannot suggest this place enough.
CaliforniaDreamer's property was very nicely kept. He had 30 amp electrical and water hookups. We also felt secure leaving our Airstream as the neighborhood seemed very safe. All in all, he was a very gracious host.
We had a great stay at Bay Area Bliss. It was a pull through gravel, level and safe area. Our dog was throughly entertained by the family of Jack rabbits on the property.
As we were leaving we had an issue with the RV & our host was very accommodating and helpful in resolving our issue.
We definitely recommend this location and it’s convenient to both San Francisco and Sacramento! We explored both!!
This backyard was a great spot for our overnight stop. Our host was very friendly, and the parking area was level and big.
We were welcomed personally and were provided all the information needed for the stay.
The place was quite and we enjoyed our stay. The host is also accommodating as he gave us an alternative place as we wanted to checkout later than usual..!
As soon as you drive onto this property, you can see how thoughtfully it has been designed by this host. BW signs are placed so it’s very clear where to park. There’s a box with flyers listing places of interest and RV- and travel-related services. The place is immaculate. The site is gravel and level, located behind the house on an open field. The driveway wraps around the house so it’s a pull-through! How rare is that?! Our host was very prompt with communications all along. We had a nice chat with him after our arrival. This was a perfect, peaceful respite after days of driving up through Southern California and Bay Area traffic. We feel fortunate that we able to stay here! Thank you, CaliforniaDreamer!
We had a great experience staying at this location. The host was excellent and had one of the best set-ups that we have had. We enjoyed an evening of wine tasting, dinner, and driving through the Napa Valley area.
The stay was very nice The Host was absolutely amazing it was quiet it was relaxing if I ever go through there again I will definitely visit again!
Great set up for hosting RV travellers with level spots and hookups. We visited San Fran, Napa Valley and the Jelly Belly Factory during our visit. We are grateful to continue to be hosted by generous individuals on our travels.
We brought a 36 ft 5th wheel to Bay Area Bliss. Everything was top notch from start to finish. The route into the location, as well as the directions, were easy. And it got better once we got there. This host is very well organized. There are BW signs routing you into the flat, circular, gravel driveway that wraps around the house, making for a simple pull through. Once you get there there are flyers posted on the wall with a list of everything you could need, from RV repair to local spots of interest. The host's home is separated from the RV parking spot by another building. So you have complete privacy. We used this location as a base to drive into Napa for some wine tasting and picnics. It was nice to go in, but then leave the commotion of Napa behind at the end of the day. We would highly recommend this location for anyone who would like to stay in the area.
This property is appropriately named and is a haven near the valley. Nice to know someone is checking to be sure we’re ok. Has list of local shops and places I needed to know (grocery, repair, laundry) Easy to see the pride he takes in his beautiful space. Enjoyed practicing my short golf game with a flag as the target. Paradise Valley Golf Course is close by. Easy access to Hwy 12 to experience the area wineries. Had a few nice visits which included recommendations for nice places to see. Super nice people.. hope to stay in touch. When I’m back in the area I’ll definitely check in here! Many thanks to these hosts!! ‘:0)
We are boondocking newbies and our host was extremely helpful with answering our questions and providing us with good information on the area. Their property provided wide open spaces for parking and ￼￼is centrally located for wine tasting (Lodi and Napa) and city site-seeing (San Francisco and Sacramento) and a plethora of hikes. There’s plenty of room for the dog to run around off-leash as well.
Great place! We’d definitely stay here again!
Our host was super nice and excellent at communication. We loved having water and power- what a bonus. Level gravel space that is super clean and nice. We enjoyed exploring Napa during our time here! Highly recommend.
Nice safe quiet place to stay...gravel parking...open grass field great for pooch to run and exercise. Host helpful. Would stay again if in area.
Tom was wonderful and very easy to work with. Don't hesitate, it's a great place to stay!
W had a wonderful stay. Would recommend to anyone!
Great place to stay. Close enough to San Francisco for a day trip and very close to the Jelly Belly factory tour. The host was very accommodating and really nice so if you are in the area be sure and see if you can stay a night or two.
Thank you for a lovely stay on your property. My husband and I are passing through on a year-long road trip and had the pleasure staying at Bay Area Bliss. We enjoyed seeing the bunnies in the yard, the chickens and walking the property.
The next time we're in the area we will certainly reach out to see if we can stay here again!
Host was very nice and welcomed us to show us where to park. I appreciate the pull through site and having hookups available. Made things so much easier. Very nice setting. A great stay!
Pro: wonderful place to peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Our dogs absolutely loved the much needed break to run around and play in the wide open yard. We got to watch the rabbits, geese, turkeys and little animals run around during the day. The neighbor also has goats to watch from the host property without having to cross the property line. The night sky was beautiful to look at during the night. For anyone new to traveling this host has plenty of space to maneuver your rig around and easy access to pull in and out of the setup locations. The hosts themselves are very communicative and helpful. There is also a gas station 1.1 away to fuel up with reasonable prices. There is also a Sam's club and walmart near by if needed. We loved that we could visit San Francisco and our states capital all within the day and a place to rest put heads at night. 10/10 we would stay here again.
Cons: None, the host homestead is absolutely wonderful perfectly located to visit many sight seeing attractions.
This was a great space for our 40' Class A Motorhome. The area is about 1 hr from San Francisco and 1 hr from Sacramento, so great for sight seeing.
The host was very welcoming, checked in on us daily to see if we needed anything, but mostly just let us do our own thing.
HIs place is very quiet, peaceful, in a rural type of neighborhood. We enjoyed watching the rabbits and wild turkeys in the field behind us.
I would definitely recommend Bay Area Biiss to others and if we are ever in this area again, will certainly stay here again.
Tom has a beautiful yard, he was able to fit a few RVers, we met some really great people and had a blast hanging out! He was very accommodating, checked up on us a few times to make sure we were as comfortable as possible
Highly recommend his location!
One of our favorite boondockers so far! Great level gravel parking, super easy to park even with a large vehicle. Host was amazing! Timely communication, always checking in on us to make sure we were good. Huge yard for our kids and dog to run around and a nice quiet neighborhood. Made some amazing friends with another boondocker staying the same time! Will be adding to our visit again list!
We absolutely loved our stay at Bayside Bliss. CaliforniaDreamer is super nice and a generous host who totally gets RV life. His property is absolutely perfect for boondocking - if you can even call it that since we had a 100% perfectly level site with water and 30-amp hook up (he even has a print out of local services and attractions that would appeal to RVers). Our dog loved the freedom to run in his big yard, happily chasing the rabbits. We even had a wild turkey visit! The drive in was easy, we never even had to back up or turn around, and he even hosted other nice families that we got to meet and hang out with. It was a great location to explore the Bay area and saved us $$$$ since all the parks in the area are crazy expensive. We highly recommend this place! Thanks CaliforniaDreamer for being so awesome!!!
The location was very easy to get in and out of it. Beautiful surroundings with nice amenities and friendly host who made sure we were all taken care of. Good location to see San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma areas. Thanks again!
Host is wonderful. So nice and SO accommodating. Very welcoming to us and my dog loves his yard so much! Its peaceful while still being close to stores/food if you want to go grab something/run errands etc. I look forward to staying here again!
Peaceful, spacious location with a generous host. Easy to find, beautiful area.
Spent 2 nights here only an hour drive from San Francisco, California dreamers property is beautiful. Felt very safe and welcomed!
Bay Area Bliss was hospitality at it's finest. Our host (and now friend) thought of everything to make the perfect Boondockers Welcome space. Our spot was perfectly level, easy hook up and has a lovely bunny and bird filled grassy area right outside the slider door. It was also fun to have another Winnebago Travato Traveler there on our first night. Comparing modifications and tips & tricks is always a fun evening! Our most memorable stay yet and hope to see again on our way back around.
The host was so kind and accommodating. Let us park in his overflow spot that was perfect, he already had another guest in his usual RV spot. Park like yet close to everything. A good nights rest!
The host was very helpful and enjoyed our conversation. Restful stay. Looking forward to another stay. Thanks again!
I've used Boondockers Welcome all over the country, and this is one of the best spots I've been to. Easily reached from I-80, near shopping and attractions, yet private and quiet in a park-like setting. I was happy to pay the $10/night donation for a 30 amp/water hookup and a level pull-through site!
We had such a great time at this BW location! First off, the host is great and I felt like I could have talked with him for hours. He really goes above and beyond as a BW host... from his seemingly professional setup for boondockers, to his daily check-ins to see if we need anything. He has such a beautiful homestead in an unbeatable location. I sincerely thank the host for the hospitality and for helping provide some amazing memories for our family! Couldn’t recommend more.
Quiet. Great amenities and a friendly host. Everything we were looking for. We'll be back!
California dreamers is a perfect name for this spot. It’s in a private, spacious green backyard. Feels like you’re just hanging out in the country. The host is warm, welcoming and made every effort to see that we had whatever we needed. Great tip sheet to direct us to local attractions and necessities (like RV dump) too. We really appreciated our two day stay. Thanks so much for the A+ hospitality!￼￼
Tom is an excellent host and his place is lovely. There was lots of room and very flat. We had a well needed peaceful sleep.
Absolutely loved my stay here! The host is more than accommodating and provides everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The area is a great location to spend the day in Napa, San Francisco or spend a few days relaxing in the sun! Would recommend anyone in the area to stay here if they can!
I can't say enough about these hosts! They are the most welcoming, hospitable, caring people you'll be fortunate to meet. I'm a newbie traveler with my trailer and they were so helpful in "filling in the blanks" so I could be more comfortable and get around my rig mechanically. The grounds are absolutely beautiful (super green this time of year) and spacious, safe and secure. Great dog walking around the neighborhood and there is also a dog park not too far away. It turns out we had mutual RV friends, so they really feel like family now. Just go!
Our friendly host greeted us, explained where to park on the property and provided a super helpful list of resources in the area including a dump site (few and far between in this area!)
The location is quiet, safe and very private in a semi-rural neighborhood. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay.
Our host was more than friendly and the spot is perfect. A wide area for any size RV and hook ups if needed. Would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area and need a spot. Thanks.
Wow. That's what we kept saying to each other when we pulled into this beautiful, peaceful homestead. Stunning scenery, from rolling hills to palm trees, with the sunsetting in the distance. And that's before we even met the incredible host. From the minute we arrived we felt incredibly welcome--from ensuring we arrived safe and sound, guiding us to the right spot on the homestead, ensuring we had easy access to water, electric, and even a super helpful resource list! It felt like we were arriving at the home of a long lost family member--someone who really and truly cared about us and our wellbeing. Throughout our stay that feeling only grew stronger with one warm engaging conversation after another, and generous offers to help us with technical issues, give tips and guidance on RV tech/upgrades, and even brought over fresh California oranges one morning. Whew. Incredibly kind, good hearted members of this great community--with the most peaceful spot imaginable, and convenient to SF, Sacramento, Napa, and tons of great local parks. We can't recommend this stay enough, and truly hope to catch the California Dreamers on the road in the near future!
Host was helpful and gave us a few gallons of water once we realized that our tank didn’t have enough.
Instructions were clear and communication was easy! Thank you! We’ll be back next time we’re in the area!
We stayed 4 nights with the California dreamers, and it was fantastic! They have water and 30 amp power and a level gravel driveway behind their beautiful home. They were super friendly and helpful and had great recommendations all typed up for services and fun in the area. Thank you so much to the California dreamers!
The hosts were so kind and friendly. We chatted a little bit when we would catch each other outside and they checked in everyday to make sure everything was ok (thru text). Their property is great, huge space for animals to run around. They also offered their fenced in backyard space with a firepit and some seating to hang out in although I didn't have a chance to take them up on their offer. Overall a great stay and I would 100% come back if I were passing through again.
We loved our stay at Bay Area Bliss and would absolutely return if coming through the area again. It was a super easy pull through, which made in and out nice and simple! The host was very friendly and gave great information about the area, as well as having a print-out available of local interests. We actually went outside of our planned route a bit to stay here and so glad we did, the beautiful drive and hospitality of the host was worth it!
California Dreamers were absolutely the perfect hosts! I had literally just picked up RV to begin my journey. They were seasoned and helped me ease into my experience. I felt safe, the ranch was beautiful and it just couldn't have been better. I highly recommend, "Bay Area Bliss".
A terrific place to stay! Host is super responsive and kind. Spot is a pull-through on gravel. We didn't use power or water, but connections were right next to site. I just regret we couldn't chat more with the host due to COVID restrictions. Definitely a highly recommended place to stay! Thank you to the host for his amazing hospitality!
We loved our stay at Bay Area Bliss! Our host was very accommodating, and had us park near his storage area so we would be on gravel (not dirt) when it rained. It allowed me to complete a solar modification that was on the to do list. We will definitely come back when we are in the north Bay Area!
Thanks, California Dreamers!!
We can’t say enough about this stay- just the nicest and most helpful folks around. Beautiful level spot, nice open area, easy to access (40 ft. Class A and toad) and electric and water access was a true bonus! Thank you!!
Quiet location on the country edge of Fairfield. We needed to be in the Oakland Hills the next day and this was a perfect place to wait for the morning Rush Hour to be over. The Host has 5 acres of land so you can either Boon Dock or utilize the water and 30 Amp hook-up on the side of his shop. Great field for our dog to run around and burn off some energy.
We will stay again.
Soooo nice to finally park on a flat surface! It's been a while. When we arrived there were 2 other boondockers and we still had plenty of room to social distance. We stayed in the large lot behind the house and had great solar. It was a wonderful location for visiting the North or East Bay areas around San Francisco/ Oakland, CA. Host was very responsive to messages and we enjoyed talking solar with him and his friend one afternoon. The right turn coming out of the back area was a little bit tight, but manageable for our 55 feet (dully+40 foot 5th wheel). The dump he recommended nearby worked well for us. Thanks for the enjoyable stay!
The host was very accommodating. We were dry camping but offered to charge portable battery packs in his shed. The location was ideal for our needs. Good southern exposure for solar. Pleasant conversation about RV travel and BW in general.
Spot looks on an open acre, perfect to walk my dogs. 30 amp hookup, plus water!! The hosts are the best, very helpful. They even baked me a delicious ginger cake!!!
Such a great place to rest for a couple of days! The host was incredibly nice and even provided a print out with local resources like laundry and the dump station. So helpful!There was a lot of space and it was a quiet area.
Thanks for sharing your space with us!
I stayed there to be close to a veterinary hospital as my little dog is giving birth for the first time. They were very flexible about how many days as I waited for her to give birth.
This was one of the best stays with Boondockers yet. Great pull through access provided and room for multiple rigs. Host provided a reference sheet with local dump station, medical clinics, Vets, local attractions, etc which is great and something we hadn’t seen before during boondockers stays. Bay Area Bliss is a great area to stay to explore San Francisco and Napa Valley. We visited both along with the Jelly Belly factory that has a nice tour. We would definitely stay again if back in the area.
CaliforniaDreamer is a great host and has a very nice, level site w/ electric & water. We drove up at twilight and it was such a help to see some signs directing us where to pull in. Large level site that's just 30 min from Napa. Knowing we would spend the day in Napa, our hos let us know that we would be welcome to spend an extra night and we were grateful to take him up on the offer.
If we come back this way, we'll definitely stay here again.
Boondockers Welcome is fortunate to have this outstanding host! I enjoyed having a lovely conversation and felt indeed “welcome”. I have a 35’ Class A with a toad, and the spot was easy to get into and exit, without having to unhook, which made my one night stay even better. I would have enjoyed staying longer, and hope to be able to see more of the area on another trip. Highly recommend!!
Great new location to stay. California Dreamers has been a wonderful host & I know this is going to be a great addition to BW.
I had the good fortune to be the first BW guest (me & the dog) at a new location in Fairfield CA, Bay Area Bliss. It is centrally located between Sacramento & San Francisco. A wonderfully spacious area behind the house. Of course #rhodie_dog & I like to hang out with the goat family across the road. When was the last time you laid down in the grass & did nothing? Highly recommended activity 😎. I hope to come back again.
