In the late 1800s, Banning earned its nickname as “Stagecoach Town, USA” thanks to the strategically located stopping point it provided for travelers coming out of the Arizona territories on their way to Los Angeles. The stagecoach line gave way to the railroad, which eventually gave way to I-10. Just like travelers of old who have come before them, campers who rent an RV in Banning, CA will appreciate this explorer-friendly locale.  Banning is less than 100 miles from the Pacific coast, and is within an hour’s drive of the Southern California metropolitan cities of San Diego and Los Angeles. The city of Banning is a close RV rental drive to various popular state and national parks, like the Joshua Tree National Park. Banning is serviced by Pass Transit buses so it’s easy to leave the Banning RV rental by owner in a safe campsite and explore the neighboring cities of Beaumont and Cabazon that are also right on I-10.

The Great Outdoors

You’re never far away from the marvelous outdoors when you book a motorhome in Banning. In fact, the 800,000+ acre San Bernardino National Forest is only 30 miles to the North. It’s popular for its scenic canyon rides on tram cars, and mountain hiking and climbing. Plus, the park offers free camping, so that’s always a bonus.

About 25 miles in the opposite direction is Mt. San Jacinto State Park. Here you can sample a section of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail which runs from Mexico to Canada and passes through three western US states. Not willing to put in that effort but want a magnificent view just the same? Then ride the rotating Palm Springs Aerial Tramway that’ll fast track you to the Mountain Station, where there are 50 miles of hiking trails waiting to be explored.

If you’d rather hit the coastal road, the starting point of California State Highway 1 or the Pacific Coast Highway is about an hour away by RV trailer rental in Banning. The coastal route doesn’t officially start at San Juan Capistrano, but you’re welcome to make a detour in San Diego for an incredible view of the city and its bay from atop the Cabrillo National Monument.

Leaving San Diego, you can pass through Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard and some of Malibu’s sumptuous beaches. Venture out to some of Ventura’s surf spots, or visit Santa Barbara’s zoo, museum, and gorgeous botanical garden. Take in the expansive views from Big Sur’s Bixby Bridge, overlooking rugged cliffs and pounding surf. Then, you can stop by Monterey’s prime whale watching spots before rounding it out in San Francisco. Ride their famous cable car tram or grab a bite at the Fisherman’s Wharf and cap off your journey with a snap of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

Should you decide to continue on to Napa Valley’s wine country or Yosemite National Park with your Banning camper rental, you can fit both into a day trip, ideally spending the night in one of Yosemite’s many campgrounds.

RV Parks

Most of the campgrounds in the Banning area are located in the surrounding state parks. If you want to stay close to the city center, the Stagecoach KOA lies just a mile South and located at the foot of the San Jacinto mountains. It’s a beautifully landscaped campground offering full hook-ups, a general store, a children’s playground and both indoor and outdoor recreation centers. You can get involved in a variety of activities here; table tennis, tetherball, volleyball, horseshoes, and swimming in the pool are just a few of the options. Set back from I-10 by about three minutes, the park’s location provides easy access to an outlet mall, casinos, and world-class golf courses. The nearest Walmart and gas stations are about five miles away via I-10.

The closest Walmarts are on San Jacinto Avenue and in Palm Springs; about 14 miles away. The nearest gas stations are less than a quarter mile away.

Country Hills RV Park and Silent Valley Club are both located within 10 miles of the city center. They’re both leafy RV parks with an array of amenities like swimming pools, indoor recreation centers, outdoor sports centers and business centers, and practical facilities such as full hook-up sites, laundromats, and WiFi.

Exploring the City

Museums and parks make up the bulk of Banning’s city attractions. There’s no better way to start your city tour than with a visit to the Gilman Historic Ranch and Wagon Museum to understand why Banning was nicknamed “Stagecoach Town, USA.” The ranch and museum preserves, celebrates, and interprets what California life was like in the late 1800s, and houses the largest public collection of buggies, wagons, and stagecoaches in southern California.

If you’re into golf, you might want to search for a luxury RV rental in Banning and take it to tee off at one of the 18 courses found within 15 miles of the city.

For young ones and the young at heart, the playful Museum of Pinball is sure to delight. Housed on 18 acres, the museum overwhelms with 1,100 vintage and modern pinball and arcade games. It’s said to be the largest collection in the world. Not surprisingly, the museum is a huge hit among older adults who want to relive the glory days of their childhood.

In the summer, take your Banning RV rental to the Repplier Park and catch a concert, or enjoy a dip in the large pool. Let the children loose at the adjacent splash pad and water slides for a family vacation that will stay with you for a long time.

This small city planted in the midst of all the action is a great destination for your next rental RV vacation. Book a camper rental in Banning and gain easy access to the countless city sites and natural landscapes that are found all around this sunny southern California spot.
