Discover Buellton

The Great Outdoors

For outdoor adventurers, the main attraction of Buellton is its close proximity to the Los Padres National Forest. Buellton is just a short drive from the San Rafael Wilderness, a scenic swath of untouched wilderness in the San Rafael Mountains. Visitors to this area can choose one of eleven trailheads to explore this gorgeous stretch of mountains, including the highly-rated Grass Mountain and Ranger Peak Trails. You can also head southeast toward the Red Rock Trailhead, which follows the Santa Ynez River to the base of the Gibraltar Dam, or head further into the forest to the Matilija Wilderness. When you visit the national forest, however, keep in mind that you will need to drive along winding mountain roads, so leave your Buellton rental RV safely parked if you’re not an experienced driver.

Although visitors could spend weeks fully exploring Los Padres, Buellton has plenty more to offer outdoor adventurers. Head south on the 101 with the Buellton RV rental to Goleta to see Nojoqui Falls Park, where you can take a short hike to enjoy stunning natural waterfalls. You can also make the drive to the coast to enjoy the scenic beaches of the central California coast. If you continue to follow Highway 101 South in the Buellton motorhome rental, you’ll find Refugio State Beach and El Capitan State Beach, two pristine sandy beaches with camping along the shore. You can also enjoy the beauty of the Santa Ynez Valley within the city itself; you can stroll along the Santa Ynez River at River View Park, or you can let your furry friends off the leash at PAWS Park. When you rent an RV in Buellton, you can easily explore the mountains and coastline of central California.

RV Parks

As a hub for roadtrippers and outdoor adventurers, Buellton has plenty of RV parks in and around the city. If you want to stay in Buellton, check out Flying Flags RV Resort and Campground. The resort offers campsites with full hookups, and there is an on-site cafe, multiple pools, hot tubs, and even an on-site dog park. Another option is the River Park Campground in Lompoc. This RV campground sits along the Santa Ynez River and offers full amenities and hookups.

If you’re up for more of a journey with the Buellton camper rental, you can also find parks deep within Los Padres or along the coast. Figueroa Campground is just north of Santa Ynez atop Figueroa Mountain, and at the campground, RV renters can enjoy easy access to hiking and mountain biking trails as well as an on-site fishing area. However, this scenic campground does not offer hookups, so be prepared to rough it on the mountain. If you want to camp in Los Padres with more amenities, consider the Rancho Oso RV and Camping Resort in Santa Barbara, which has full hookups along with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, volleyball, and a pool and hot tub. If you need a break from the woods, head to the beach and check out Ocean Mesa RV and Campground. This scenic campground is just minutes from El Capitan State Beach, and it has full hookups and resort amenities. In Buellton and the Santa Ynez Valley, you’ll surely find a great place to park your rental RV.

Exploring the City

Although Buellton is a small city with just a few thousand residents, its convenient location along Highway 101 and Route 246 make it a popular tourist destination with plenty of shops, restaurants, and attractions.

One of the most unique attractions in Buellton is OstrichLand USA, a massive farm and petting zoo filled with ostriches and emus. Buellton is also known for its craft breweries and wineries.
