Discover Menlo Park, CA


With a beautiful location right along the shores of the San Francisco Bay, the city of Menlo Park lies in between the larger cities of San Francisco and San Jose. Menlo Park was originally founded as a ranch and with the establishment of a nearby railroad station using the ranch as a landmark, the area gained notoriety. With land being bought by the government, schools, and other purveyors, and as more and more people began to move to the area, Menlo Park grew into the multi-faceted city it is today. While Menlo Park is known as the headquarters for Facebook, it won’t take you long to wonder why Menlo Park isn’t known for its natural beauty.

When you rent an RV in a busy city like Menlo Park, you may not want to drive it everywhere. Luckily enough, there is a rail system and bus service available to ease your travels. SamTrans operates transportation throughout Menlo Park and the surrounding towns.

When you book an RV in San Mateo County, you open up a world of exploring Pacific Coast shorelines, Northern Californian forests, and so much more. You will be able to spend your days living the Californian lifestyle as you cruise from destination to destination.

The Great Outdoors

If you’re interested in the various forms of wildlife that can be found in coastal settings, then just a short drive to the north is the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge near Fremont, California. With 15 different types of habitats, there is a mind-boggling amount of biodiversity that calls the refuge home. Visitors can hike along the trails or even canoe or kayak through the tributaries to try and get a closer look. Be sure to stay quiet because you may even spot a rare coastal bird.

Just a short drive to the west is the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve near Half Moon Bay, California. At Purisima Creek, visitors can enjoy just over 4,700 acres of towering redwoods. These silent giants create an environment like none else on Earth. You will feel transported as you hike over the 24 miles of trails of this otherworldly landscape. If you’re looking to challenge yourself, you can even hike through the canyon.

If you want an easy day drive with your Menlo Park RV rental by owner, not too far to the south of town is the Castle Rock State Park in Los Gatos, California. Castle Rock has everything you could want in a northern Californian state park: breathtaking forests, dramatic geologic features, and panoramic views as far as the eye can see. With 34 miles of trails ranging from easy strolls to strenuous rocky and hill climbs, there is never a dull moment to be had at Castle Rock.

RV Parks

When you secure an RV rental in Menlo Park, California, be sure to secure yourself an RV site or two. Luckily enough, there are several places around the Bay that are worth considering.

Just a short drive to the southwest, on the shores of the Pacific, is the Half Moon Bay RV Park. Here, guests will have access to full hookups, restroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, and Wi-Fi. Guests will also have access to several beach sports, like volleyball, and an on-site restaurant.

A little farther south of Half Moon Bay RV Park is the Pelican Point RV Park. Also on the water, guests will have access to full hookups, restroom and shower facilities, and Wi-Fi. Guests will also have access to an on-site convenience store and cable TV.

When you find yourself needing to refuel your Menlo Park RV rental by owner, you will have no difficulty finding somewhere to go. There are plenty of choices around Menlo Park and the neighboring towns.

Explore the City

When you book a motorhome rental in Menlo Park, be sure to plan some extra days where you can spend some time exploring the local community. You will be able to learn about this quickly changing part of the country and get to experience the various cultures and parts of local history.

If you want to see something a little quirky, and definitely representative of the Silicon Valley, then take a detour to the Google Android Lawn Statues. Located near the Googleplex, these statues provide a sort of whimsy to the tech world. You can walk around the various statues and delight in the bright colors and enjoy the physical depiction of each of Android’s software updates in art form.

Just a short drive out of the bustle of town is the impressive Filoli. This historic estate and its cared-for gardens offer a perfect escape from the realities of the real world. You can meander around the various gardens such as the dazzling Wedding Place and the opulent Sunken Garden. Or instead, you can visit the constantly rotating exhibitions that showcase local art, local history, and botanical studies.

If you dream of flying among the clouds, then a trip to the Hiller Aviation Museum may be just for you. With exhibitions focused on the history of flight, interactive exhibits, and a wide range of historic aircraft on display, you may just leave Hiller with a strong urge to become a pilot. There are also plenty of special events that happen at the museum where you can learn more about the science of flight, or maybe instead just ride the flight simulator a couple more times.

When you rent an RV along the San Francisco Bay, no journey is complete without indulging in some freshly caught local seafood, such as crab or shrimp, and a glass of Northern Californian wine.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership.
