In the middle of the San Bernardino National Forest is a charming little resort community known by the name of Lake Arrowhead. The town is of course named for the Lake Arrowhead Reservoir that serves as the main focal point of the area and is home to several other tiny residential communities.

The town is primarily sustained by its tourism industry, which brings over four million people each year to enjoy the enchanting lake and its serene forest surroundings. Gorgeous houses on the lakeside and busy marinas make the lake a lively place in the summertime, and in winter, the town is covered in snow, making it a winter wonderland. Lake Arrowhead Village is where people go to shop at trendy boutiques or to dine at fabulous restaurants in the main walking areas.

When you book an RV in Lake Arrowhead, only two hours of driving separate you and Los Angeles, and the city of San Bernardino is only an hour's drive away. Additionally, Lake Arrowhead puts on several events throughout the year, like the summer concert series, the Tour de Lake Arrowhead, and one of the country’s largest Oktoberfest celebrations. You won’t be disappointed when you rent an RV in Lake Arrowhead and explore the forest on your own terms.

Silverwood State Recreation Area is a fantastic place to camp and swim when you head to the north from town in your Lake Arrowhead camper rental.

The Pacific Crest Trail that runs from Mexico all the way to Canada runs through the park making it a trekker’s dream. Fishing, water skiing, boating, and swimming are commonly enjoyed on the lake.

The town of Big Bear Lake is named for its own lake much like Lake Arrowhead and can be a great place to visit when you rent an RV. This amazing lake has several marinas, lots of beaches, and numerous campgrounds where you and your Lake Arrowhead motorhome rental can seek refuge. The San Bernardino National Forest itself is an amazing place to explore and encompasses several major lakes as well as four mountain ranges within its limits. The San Jacinto, San Gabriel, Santa Rosa, and San Bernardino Mountains run through the sprawling forest making it a truly incredible hub for mountain climbing, long distance trekking, and backcountry fun.

Joshua Tree National Park is a breathtaking collection of desert ecosystems that contain bizarre rock formations, unique trees, and crystal-clear night skies for viewing and photographing. The sunsets and sunrises in the desert leave guests at a loss for words with hundreds of different colors streaking across the sky at dusk and dawn. There are several other national parks to the north that you can camp at with your Lake Arrowhead RV rental too, but you shouldn’t have to stray too far from town to get all the nature you could possibly need.

Where to Park It
