Rockville is a small unincorporated community in northern-central Solano County, California southwest of Fairfield and closest to Cordelia.
The main economic activities are farming, tourism, and the large regional Rockville Cemetery.
Rockville was the site of a crop circle controversy in 2003, with some initially claiming an extraterrestrial cause. However, some local teenagers later admitted that they had perpetrated the hoax.
Rockville is the home of the Rockville Hills Regional Park, consisting of 633 acres of grasslands and oak woodlands, with a dense mixed broadleaf forest through which there are many hiking and biking trails.
