The Great Outdoors

Those who want to experience some quintessential Californian landscapes can head just down the road from the Golden Pines RV Resort and Campground to the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Arnold. The name says it all: Big trees – you’ll feel dwarfed by the towering sequoias that make up the forest. You can enjoy the trails that wind through the sequoias, set up alongside a stream to enjoy an afternoon of fishing, or take a quick dip in the cold, refreshing waters of the river. Be sure to check out their website before your trip because the park often hosts events, such as Astronomy Nights, several times a month.Just north of the RV park and Stanislaus National Forest is the Eldorado National Forest in Placerville. Hikers who want to challenge themselves can take a day trip to the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Eldorado; it's the perfect place to stretch your legs. With the foothills starting at an elevation of 1,000 feet with mountains reaching up to 10,000 feet, you can climb the summits for stunning views of the valleys, canyons, and forests below. The park is also open for skiing and snowboarding opportunities during the winter.While camping at Golden Pines RV Resort and Campground, the Red Hills Recreational Management Area in Jamestown, California, is a great place to visit. The area offers ample hiking opportunities suited for all expertise levels. Wildflower lovers flock to Red Hills every spring to see the grassy landscape burst with color. As you wander through the Red Hills, if you’re lucky, you might see jackrabbits, mule deer, and even bald eagles. You can also get yourself a bike and speed over the bike trails as you travel up and down the hills of the natural area.

Explore the City

The history buffs out there can spend part of a day at the Sierra Nevada Logging Museum. Here, you can learn about the early pioneering industries of Gold Rush California. The museum also hosts a variety of events that showcase the history of the area, the natural wonders of the area, and work to bring the community together.For something a little different, you can spend the day at the nearby California Cavern State Historic Landmark near Mountain Ranch. These limestone caves within the Sierra Nevada Mountains showcase some of the wondrous geologic formations that can occur in this unique part of the country. You can join a tour of the caverns and see stalagmites, stalactites, underground lakes, and truly otherworldly formations.Golden Pines RV Resort and Campground is on the southern edge of the California wine country, which means that there are plenty of vineyards to enjoy. You can take vineyard tours, enjoy wine tastings, and learn everything that goes into running a vineyard.When you book an RV in Arnold, eventually you will need to re-stock and re-fuel. Because you are within the national forest, you will have to do a little bit of forward planning. There are a few gas stations and grocery stores within reasonable driving distance. When staying in Arnold, be sure to head down the main road of Route 4. You’ll be able to take yourself on a tour of the various family-owned restaurants, many of which represent California’s many different cultures.

It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

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.
