Popular RV Destinations in California

Travelers of all ages flock to the Golden State every year. The wealth of vastly different experiences that the state has to offer is incomparable. California boasts deserts, mountains, beaches, forests, cities, vineyards and a host of other places to discover and explore. Often, the only thing holding people back from visiting is the high price tag. Staying in hotels can really add up, so the best way to cut costs and make your trip memorable is to stay in a California RV resort. Some of the most popular destinations in California are also popular RV destinations, so you can find these resorts almost anywhere you want to be.

– KQ Ranch Resort – In beautiful Julian, California, this California RV resort is a fantastic resort in a very centralized location. The park is very close to San Diego, allowing for easy day trips into the city to explore. It also sits near the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and the Pacific Coast Trail, allowing your inner “granola-girl/boy” to hike along the miles of trails available to stunning lookout points and through ecosystems teeming with life. Also, while most couples are crowding up and touring the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, you can be indulging in the delightful, pristine vineyards right around Julian like the Menghini Winery or the oldest winery in southern California, Bernardo Winery.

– Emerald Cove RV Resort – On the California side of the winding Colorado River, Emerald Cove is a very family-oriented resort surrounded in amazing panoramic views. Drop the kids off at the River Rats Kids’ Club where the director will entertain them for hours. During the few quiet hours you have earned, spend your time relaxing on the white sandy beach. When you converge again, head out on the lake with the kids for some water sports, or drive over to Quartzsite, AZ, where there are gem and mineral shows, as well as a large flea market full of fossils, gems, and rocks. Your kids can learn a bit of geology and you can pick up a couple of gems for souvenirs, so everyone wins!

– Cherry Valley Lakes – Moments from Palm Springs and less than an hour away from Los Angeles sits Cherry Valley Lakes. Obviously well-situated, the campground offers gorgeous mountain vistas and vibrant night-life all within easy driving distance. This is a resort to truly relax at, fish in the well-stocked lake, and unwind around the campfire with your family and friends. Fabulously beautiful golf courses are within a quick drive as well, and the shops and restaurants of Palm Springs are just around the corner.
