Information About Auburn, CA
Filled with history, dozens of interesting small towns and a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities, Northern California is a fantastic place to rent an RV. The little community of Auburn, 30 miles north of California’s capital of Sacramento, might be one of the best towns to start your RV rental adventure. It has retained much of its small-town charm, even in the face of California’s rapid growth. Founded in 1848 as a gold mining camp on the Auburn Ravine, it became the center of California’s gold rush, as the precious metal could be easily extracted from the nearby streams. Today that history is on full display, with many of the landmarks and buildings from the period being preserved for contemporary enjoyment.
Amtrak provides connections to Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area via the Capitol Corridor line. If you were thinking of heading into the city, this is a good option, as you’ll save on parking and the hassle of driving your Auburn RV rental around their crowded streets.
Getting Outside Near Auburn
The Auburn State Recreation Area is one of the easiest places to get outside and enjoy nature. The state park encompasses 40 miles of the North and Middle Forks of the American River and offers some amazing opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and whitewater rafting. It’s also well known for its endurance races.
Auburn is also known as the endurance racing capital of the world with dozens of races of over 50 miles in length including the Western States Trail Run and American River 50 Mile Endurance Run. Even if you’re not a runner, these races are an experience to watch and a great way to spend the day when you book an RV in Auburn.
If you don’t feel like traveling too far and have a bicycle, the Forest Hills bike path is a great way to see some of the amazing scenery around Auburn. Golfers will enjoy the lush parklands of the various golf courses around town.
Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument is also only 140 miles from Auburn. The 330,000-acre monument in the California Coast mountain range is a popular spot for outdoor recreation with residents of Sacramento and the Bay Area, but its size prevents it from ever feeling crowded. Hundreds of miles of trails and clear blue water for swimming make this a must-see spot during your Auburn camper rental vacation.

Exploring the Town of Auburn
Auburn is perhaps most famous for its gold rush days back in the mid-19th century, when miners from across the country rushed to make their fortune here. The town’s Gold Rush Museum is a great introduction to this history with several hands-on exhibits and a replica gold mining tunnel, all housed inside the historic Auburn Depot.
For a different take on Auburn’s history visit the Joss House Chinese Museum. It’s only opened once a month but is an absolute treat if that happens to be during your visit to Auburn. It functioned as a community meeting space and kitchen for Chinese immigrants that were unwelcome at many of the other establishments in the area. The museum is a testament to California’s troubled history and helps visitors to understand the difficulties that immigrants face today.
