RV Camping on a Winery with Harvest Hosts
What is it like to camp in your RV on a beautiful winery? Follow the RVing Pyke family in this short video as they show you how Harvest Hosts members can visit and enjoy Cold Springs Winery and Vineyard in Hammett, Idaho.
Located less than an hour from Boise, Idaho, Cold Springs Vineyard is just a short drive off of Interstate 84, but a world away from traffic and noise. Access is easy for RVs of all sizes, including big rigs. The vineyard is also pet friendly, so feel free to bring Fido along to enjoy!
Established in 1998, the peaceful and picturesque family operation is run by owner Bill Ringert. It is part of the Snake River Valley Wine Region. “We raise grapes and make what we consider to be high quality wine. That’s our goal, that’s our mission,” Bill said.
Cold Springs Vineyard currently grows 34 acres of vines and has over 12 different varieties. Bill has certainly reached his goal of making high quality wine, as they consistently win awards in The Idaho Wine Competition. In fact, the 2016 Tempranillo recently took home the Gold in the 2018 competition.
“I’ve had a great time with Harvest Hosts,” Bill said. “We’ve had so many interesting discussions on the patio at the winery. I’ve even had some people invite me to supper. I hope you enjoy your stay, enjoy the wine, and have a safe trip wherever you’re going.”
If you are a Harvest Hosts member, be sure to make a stop at Cold Springs on your next RV trip through Idaho. The wonderful wine is rivaled only by Bill’s sweet and genuine hospitality.
If you are not a Harvest Hosts member, you can still visit and enjoy the winery. But to stay overnight in your RV you must join the program.
Here are some member submitted photos from Harvest Hosts RVers enjoying their stays:

We are new to the idea of vineyard camping. Our new RV has a cassette toilet. Are we still considered self contained?
Looks very interesting. We are in Reno Nevada and would like to see what locations are near here.
I would like to know what places we can visit in Southern California. Thanks!
Hi Paul, there are dozens of locations available in SoCal. Once you have joined the program, you can see the exact locations and request to stay at each of them. Hope this helps!
I am interested in joining but would like to know the locations in Idaho, specifically near Boise. Also can you stay more than 1 night.
Hey Jill, there are ten locations located near or outside Boise. Most of our locations allow just one night of camping, but there are some that allow more than one night. Any that allow additional nights of camping will list it in their host profile.
I am interested in this program but would like to know a list of possible sites in Ontario, Quebec, and Eastern Canada. Don’t need a complete list but some highlight areas. I know through the States there is lots of interesting spots, just during Covid knowing what can be available to us right now.
Hey Jason! I’ve actually been wanting to write an article highlighting some of our locations across these areas for quite awhile now, and I’m planning to once the borders open back up. Eastern Canada actually has the highest concentration of Host locations in all of Canada. There over forty locations around Toronto, as well as a handful nearby Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec, with others scattered through the southern portions of the Ontario and Quebec provinces. There are also nearly a dozen locations in New Brunswick. Hope this helps!
We travel and tow a 24 ft ROCKWOOD Roo Hybrid Travel Trailer. Even though it totally self contained with bathroom, stove,oven, and shower and a slide out. I read somewhere that we can’t use harvest host because the front and back have pop out tents. Is that true?
Hi Joe! As long as the RV is full self-contained, you are allowed to stay with Harvest Hosts. 🙂
I am planning a National Parks Road trip, in about a year or so. Are your locations close or near any national parks? Thanks. Janet
Hey Janet! There are many locations that are near some of the national parks. I recommend using the map search feature to look for and locate all the locations nearby the areas you want to visit! 🙂
What do you have besides wineries? Not everyone drinks!
Hey Julie! If you look at our main website page, there is a full list of hosts and their type. In addition to 505+ wineries and 127+ breweries, we have 315+ farms, 227+ attractions, and 356+ golf courses/country clubs that come with the upgraded golf membership. Please reach out to customer service if you have any additional questions! 🙂
Would like more information on places to stay in California.
Do the golf courses allow you to stay more than one night and do they allow pets to stay in the RV while you golf?
I really want to try that Reisling!
Hope to one day. My grandchildren, in their VWEurovan are enjoying Harvesthosts and loving it.
Linz, remember me, if you get there😘
Hey Laurie! SO glad your grandkids are enjoying Harvest Hosts!
Looking forward to this new adventure! My ex wife will be envious!
Hope you have a great trip, Bill!
