Discover Chula Vista


With a diverse culture, rich economy, and scenic location, Chula Vista (meaning “beautiful view”) easily lives up to its name. This city is the second largest in the San Diego metro area and sits comfortably between the San Diego Bay and coastal mountain foothills.


Chula Vista is conveniently connected to a plethora of travel routes and roads, including the California state routes and highways, as well as multiple interstates. There’s so much to explore with a Chula Vista rental RV!


Get out there, and ditch the hotels. RV rentals in Chula Vista, CA are an affordable, fun, and fantastic way to spend your time in and around the city.


Let’s Go!


When you rent a camper in Chula Vista, suddenly the doors open to brand new adventures! When the outdoors are more of your “thing”, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect place.


What helps enhance this perfection is having options between breathtakingly beautiful state parks and national forests in your sights. Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, and Cleveland National Forest are just a few of the parks you can explore with your motorhome rental in Chula Vista.


Less than an hour’s drive away, at Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, there are two family camps from which to choose; Green Valley and Paso Picacho. Neither of these parks offers hookups, but both offer a dump station, pay showers and restrooms with flush toilets. Be advised, there is a maximum trailer length of 30 feet permitted.


This state park includes trails for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking. Camps allow for horses as well, so, don’t be surprised to have some “neigh”-bors. Here, you can even enjoy an exhibit at Stonewall Mine, formerly mined for gold!


Another favorite travel stop, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, is a little farther, but still less than two hours from our start at Chula Vista. There are three first-come, first-serve campgrounds. Be sure your vehicle is up for the job, as these roads tend to be quite rough. This desert park is huge and sports all types of shrubs, cacti, wildflowers, trees and plenty of hiking trails. Always be sure to have plenty of water with you, both during your day travels and your nightly stays.


Staying the night is a must here. Why? Well, this state park is an International Dark Sky Park! As such, Anza-Borrego and the town of Borrego Springs provide astounding views for any sky and space explorer.


Since we’re talking stars, Cleveland National Forest is another hot spot for RVers and stargazers alike. Your RV rental in Chula Vista was made for this. Scenic drives run the way to Palomar Mountain and Observatory, where night visits are popular.


There are more than 10 campgrounds here that provide sites for RVs or trailers. One downside, though; there are no hookups. It’s best to check in with the local ranger station before going through with your trip to ensure you’re visiting the right campground. Some are a little more difficult to enter or exit with an RV.


If you’re in the mood for something a little different, why not visit Salton Sea State Recreation Area? Popular with boaters and anglers, as well as hikers, the Salton Sea Recreation Area is a well-loved 14-mile shore. During your stay, you’ll also want to be sure to check out the opposite side of this man-made inland sea at Salton Sea Beach.


To The Cities


Your motorhome rental in Chula Vista won’t just take you to outdoor adventure. On your way to any destination, you’ll come across a number of cities. Be sure to have San Diego on your list!


The San Diego campgrounds and RV parks offer diverse camping experiences and are all within close proximity to the attractions and activities of this bustling city.


Feeling really adventurous? Tijuana is a border city in Mexico and a hub for traditional Mexican food and culture. Very tourist-friendly, a visit to Tijuana is a perfect way to get your feet wet and be immersed in a different tradition.


Be prepared for a decent amount of time spent at the border. Luckily, here, you’re in the free trade zone, though you’ll still need valid passports, IDs and other requirements for your vehicle(s).


Back To Beautiful


The city of Chula Vista, CA has much to offer with your stay. Search for an RV in Chula Vista so that you can take the time to enjoy your trip.


While in downtown Chula Vista, you’ll be privy to a multitude of cultural events, including the Chula Vista Rose Festival, the Lemon Festival, and the Starlight Parade. The Mattress Firm Amphitheatre is a performing arts center here, a host to major concert events.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership.
