Discover Encinitas, CA


RV rentals in Encinitas bring you to a paradise with a temperate Mediterranean climate. You’ll have plenty to do in the area, but you’ll also be approximately 25 miles north of San Diego and 95 miles south of Los Angeles if you wish to venture out a bit further. Disneyland, in Anaheim, and LEGOland, in Carlsbad, are also within driving distance for fantastic family fun.


Encinitas itself was recognized by National Geographic as one of the 20 best surf towns in the world; obviously, this is one of the main draws but certainly not the only one. Surfer culture means that the city is replete with coffee houses and record shops. It’s also known as the Flower Capital of the World and it’s the leading grower of poinsettias, so there are plenty of nurseries and gardens to suit any serious horticulturalist as well as anyone who just likes looking at pretty plants. Birds are drawn to flowers as well; an astounding 40% of all the birds in North America cross the San Elijo Lagoon each year as they migrate.


Take the RV rental in Encinitas along Historic Highway 101 for a thorough exploration of the diverse, vibrant, unique culture of southern California. For more local history, visit the century-old downtown shopping district that blends contemporary boutiques and cafes with historic buildings and other treasures.


Beach towns specialize in seafood and you’ll have the opportunity to savor fresh fish and other oceanic delicacies. Enjoy beachfront bars and bistros as well as wineries and authentic Mexican cuisine. You can also find live music, dancing, and other nightlife with a hip, happy vibe.


The Great Outdoors


Beaches, beaches, beaches. Encinitas is widely recognized as having some of the best beaches in the entire world and when you rent a motorhome in Encinitas, you can visit them. Some of the highlights include Moonlight State Beach with free parking, bathrooms and showers, a snack bar, a playground, fire rings, and a year-round lifeguard station; Grandview Beach and Moonlight State Beaches, which are California state parks; secluded Boneyard Beach (where you may encounter nude sunbathers); and Swami’s, which features free parking and is known for its spectacular surfing.


There is, of course, plenty more that you can do with an RV rental near Encinitas. The San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve spans over 1,000 acres and is one of the largest coastal wetlands left in the country. It includes over 300 species of plants, 26 species of mammals, 23 species of fish, and 300 species of birds. The nature center is operated by the San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation and there are seven miles of trails. Also visit the San Diego Botanic Garden, with four miles of trails and the country’s largest collection of bamboo. Golfers will enjoy the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course and cyclists can take advantage of the many trails with their own bikes or rent bikes from one of the many outlets.


RV Parks


The San Elijo State Beach, operated by the California Department of Parks and Recreation, provides RV parking and camping spots. The seasonal camp store and snack bar stocks some RV supplies, firewood, and boogie boards as well as the standard convenience items. This is also the location of the original Bull Taco. The Eli Howard Surf School offers surf camps, private surfing lessons, and adult weekend escapes.


The Trailer Rancho RV Park is another site where you can park the Encinitas camper rental. It is in a quiet, residential neighborhood and you can easily walk to the beach or access public transportation. Pets are welcome. The park features restrooms, tiled showers, laundry facilities, a pool table, and a lounge with a fireplace.

The community welcomes visitors of all ages and boasts an outdoor pool, laundry facilities, clubhouse with pool table, and an on-site manager. The RV park provides electricity, water, sewer, and a shower house for guests.
