The Great Outdoors

Vacationing in this awe-inspiring part of the country can be an incredible experience, and when you book an RV in Humboldt County, you will have nearly endless access to thrilling adventures. There are lots of unique parks in the area when you rent an RV near Benbow KOA, so planning where you’ll be spending your time is part of the fun. Richardson Grove State Park is just south of town, with plenty of glorious redwood trees that you can see, walk along, or even drive through. The park has 2,000 acres of protected forestland, with some of the largest trees in the world. To the north of Garberville on State Highway 101, you can check out Humboldt Redwoods State Park for some more pristine forests populated with mighty redwood trees. Driving there in your campervan rental requires you to pass through the fabled “Avenue of Giants,” a fantastic grove of redwoods that line the highway on either side. Nearly half the park is old growth, with ancient trees far older than most civilizations. Biking and hiking are wonderful ways to explore the park, as there are hundreds of miles of trails weaving through it.Kings Range National Conservation Area is close by, protecting a stretch of the coastline where you can do some swimming, beachcombing, sun tanning, or any number of other water-based activities. Rolling hills dip into the Pacific Ocean, capped with Douglas fir trees and mighty redwoods, for picture-perfect views and jaw-dropping sunsets. Due to the Kings Range of mountains, there are tons of microclimates and ecosystems scattered throughout the coastal area, all of which are beautiful in their own right.If you don’t mind heading inland for a few hours of driving, you can see Lassen Volcanic National Park, a hidden gem flying well beneath the radar thanks to more popular parks like Yosemite National Park and Joshua Tree National Park. This volcanically active area is home to all four of the major types of volcanoes, something that is not found anywhere else on the planet. You can survey the park or camp out in the volcanic fields of this otherworldly place.

Exploring the City

While there are a few shops and restaurants in Garberville, it is hardly a big-city destination, so attractions are few and far between. One landmark in Garberville is the One Log House, a fantastic piece of architecture unlike any other. The building is essentially made from one giant redwood tree laying on its side, a truly strange sight to see in person.The world-famous Confusion Hill is a small roadside attraction south of town, reminding travelers of their proximity to the park with countless signs adorning the roadsides. This gift shop/funhouse has lots of neat features, but it is most famous for its strange gravity, with visitors reporting unusual happenings in this paranormal vortex. There are also massive redwood chainsaw carvings, a playground, and a snack bar on-site.If you head even farther south, you can drive through the famous Drive-Through Tree, a massive redwood specimen with a chunk carved out of the middle for cars to pass through. The giant is nearly twice the width of an SUV, so seeing it in person is quite astounding. There are some other cool things to check out in the area, though when you rent a camper near Benbow KOA, you'll probably spend most of your time in the vast California wilderness.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
