With Motor Home, California Dreamin' can be Reality
There's no better state in the USA to experience RV travel.
From wine country to beach towns, the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the sandy coast, you just can't beat a great California vacation.
Redwood forests. Glistening coastline. Panoramic city views. San Francisco RV rental is your ticket to exploring the city by the bay and nearby attractions.
Getting around many of San Francisco's bustling neighborhoods, such as Chinatown, is best done by bus or on foot. Likewise, from Fisherman's Wharf, another popular attraction among visitors, you can ride a cable car to swanky Nob Hill or take the ferry to Alcatraz Island, now a national park. Other sites, including the Golden Gate Bridge and nearby Legion of Honor.
Route No. 1
San Francisco RV parks provide the perfect launch point for a cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway, also known as "Route 1".
Driving north or south along the coast in your San Francisco RV rental, you'll be dazzled by miles of crashing waves, rocky cliffs, and outdoors opportunities. A southbound excursion along the " Route 1" will take you past a number of state parks, such as Big Basin Redwoods State Park, where you can hike 80 miles of trails, through redwood forests and waterfalls. Further south, the Monterey Bay area is a capital of marine activities-like deep-sea fishing, whale watching, and scuba diving-and home to the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium. South of San Francisco, RV parks can be found in Santa Cruz, Carmel and Marina.
Just 60 miles northeast of the Bay Area are the towns of Napa and Sonoma, home to some of the world's most famous winemakers. Vineyard tours and wine tastings are seemingly everywhere. For a bird's-eye view of the region's gorgeous rolling hills, try a hot-air balloon ride.

on camping in Yosemite Park
Yosemite Camping: Reservations Required - If you are planning your Yosemite RV camping trip early, make reservations at one of these campsites, all of which welcome RVs. However, many prime campgrounds are booked solid months in advance, so if you’re too late to reserve, skip to the next section fo a list of unreserved Yosemite camping spots:
Upper, Lower and North Pines - These three campgrounds are located near Yosemite Village and Curry Village, providing easy access to amenities like showers, grocery stores, dump stations and more. Situated in tourist-heavy areas, you can expect a more boisterous Yosemite camping experience here.
Wawona - Located near the southern tip of the park, Wawona is conveniently located for travelers coming to the park from Highway 41 out of the Fresno area.
Bridalveil Creek - Located outside of Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Creek offers easy roadside access, as well as close proximity to Glacier Point, a renowned star-gazing site.
Crane Flat - A bit quieter than the Pines campgrounds, Crane Flat is located off Highway 120 on the western edge of the park.
Hodgdon Meadow - Located near the Big Oak Flat entrance on the San Francisco side, Hodgdon Meadow is easy to get to, but just a bit off the beaten path.
NOTE! When planning your Yosemite camping trip, keep in mind that the park is exceptionally popular from April through October and camping in undeveloped areas is not permitted. Since spots fill quickly, your best bet is to show up early in the morning at one of these unreserved campgrounds and wait for others to vacate a spot.
Santa Barbara Wine Country
Take a leisurely drive through the towns of Santa Ynez , Buellton and Solvang - a charming Danish village - and you're sure to fall in love with Santa Barbara's wine region. Less lavish than Napa but no less refined, this region is known for its pinot noir. Plus, it's just half an hour to Santa Barbara's famous beaches.
Redwood National Park
You may not be able to pull your RV through one of the region's drive-through redwood trees, but that won't make this national park any less impressive. Located just off California's northern coast and nearly at the Oregon border, Redwood National Park is a misty oasis of towering centuries-old trees and fragile flora and fauna.
