The Great Outdoors

You don’t have to go far in your RV rental to start enjoying the incredible scenery stretching in all directions - Andrew Molera State Park is minutes away from the campground. The park is mostly undeveloped, giving visitors a chance to spend some time away from civilization. Hiking trails meander along the shore, leading to soft meadows, scenic bluffs, and long stretches of sandy beach. Climb to one of the hilltops and witness the stunning panoramic views of the ocean – bringing a camera is definitely a great idea. If you don’t want to pick a specific park to visit, head down to Pfeiffer Beach and dig your feet into its pinkish sand.A rental motorhome at Fernwood Resort Campground is your ticket to another jewel of Central California – Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. On the slopes of Santa Lucia Mountains, it will provide adventurous spirits with a chance to climb their peaks and get a bird's-eye perspective on the magnificent gorge of the Big Sur River. Lush vegetation will provide shade, and redwoods, sycamores, and willows are only some of the trees hikers can spot along the way. Members of the fauna don’t fall short – wildlife viewers can see black-tailed deer, gray squirrels, and bobcats, to mention only a few of the species inhabiting the park.Not all the amazing natural places of the region are located on the coast – exciting RV camping adventures are also waiting inland, at Pinnacles National Park. An extraordinary landscape created by the lava flow coming from ancient volcanoes is waiting for you in this giant oasis. Tens of miles of hiking trails cut through the park, varying from easy hikes to challenging ones that might take you all day to complete. The towering rock formations provide great opportunities for rock climbing, and if you want to disappear underground for a while, enter one of the two talus caves located in the park. Another interesting activity is bird watching – if you are lucky, you will see condors, falcons, and vultures in their natural habitat.

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.
