The Great Outdoors

One of the best parts about motorhome camping near Coloma is all of the fantastic natural areas you will have a chance to visit, ranging from historic to massive. Right next to the campground, you can check out Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. Ever since James W. Marshall found gold in 1848, this river canyon has been a popular spot to see.

Marshall Gold is a great place to fish, and you can also tour a museum here.If you are looking to spend some time on the water, you will probably want to check out Folsom Lake State Recreation Area in Folsom. From the lake to the wildflowers, there are plenty of sights to enjoy while you try the different activities you can find while hiking around the area. You can throw a line in the water almost anywhere to try catching the catfish, trout, and bass that populate the lake. Experience the Sierra foothills with mountain biking, horseback riding, and water skiing when you visit this scenic area.For the most dynamic option in the region, make your way over to Eldorado National Forest near Placerville. Reaching close to 600,000 acres, you could spend months here without covering the same spot twice. Of course, you will probably want to grab a map while enjoying the hiking, camping, fishing, picnicking, and horseback and off-road riding you can try around the forest. There are multiple trails that highlight the wildflowers of the area along with two distinct wilderness areas in Desolation and Mokelumne.

There you can try panning for gold and gems along with checking out plenty of cultural exhibits. Explore a classic blacksmith shop, find out what a stamp mill is, and take an audio tour of an 1880's gold mine at this unique attraction.You can delve deeper into the area's culture and history at the El Dorado County Historical Museum. There you can see a wide assortment of Native American artifacts, including baskets, masks, and weapons from the Maidu, Miwok, and Washoe people. You will also find more gold mining exhibits here and see how the community morphed into an agricultural one when the gold mining industry ran dry.For a dive beneath the surface, a stop by SeaQuest Folsom in Folsom is a terrific way to add some variety to your vacation. This aquarium provides more than just insight into the creatures of the ocean; it highlights other ecosystems like the desert and rain forests too. It's a vibrant spot to visit, with over 1,000 animals representing over 300 species, including rare creatures like catsharks, wrasse, and Silkie chickens.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
