Camping at Lake Berryessa, CA?

I'm thinking of a long weekend trip around Napa. I didn't see any public campgrounds around Lake Berryessa. Are any of the private ones good for bike tourers?

I've thought of it too

Since I'm living in Sacramento right now I've also thought of heading over that way, but the campgrounds and residents are definitely iffy. All commercial, no state parks or hiker/biker sites. I pedaled through one that was south east of the lake last summer on a long day ride and it looked pretty bad. I think i will stick to going west up into the foothills to camp. Can't wait for cooler weather and the crowds to leave. I miss camping in the redwoods west of the bay area.
