Once you get to Lake Berryessa
Just a 45-minute drive through gorgeous countryside from Rutherford — it's well worth the trip there. Head to Pleasure Cove Marina, which offers boat launching, boat and jet ski rentals and boat gasoline. If you want to stay the night, they also offer houseboat and cabin rentals, as well as camping options.
A little Lake Berryessa history
Lake Berryessa is the largest lake in Napa County, California. This reservoir in the Vaca Mountains was formed following the construction of the Monticello Dam on Putah Creek in the 1950s. Since the early 1960s, this reservoir has provided water and hydroelectricity to the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.
