The Great Outdoors

When you rent a camper near Mount Shasta City KOA, you're probably doing so to catch a glimpse of the spectacular natural beauty of California. Nowhere else can you see such incredible trees, mountains, and natural landmarks in such abundance. Castle Crag State Park is a fabulous park to check out just south of your RV park, known for its unique rock formations that resemble castle towers. These mesmerizing natural landmarks can be seen from the highway, so travelers often stop to admire their beauty. You can hike or climb your way through the park in search of the Castle Crags bellflower or the Castle Crags Ivesia, two endemic species of plants that don’t grow anywhere else in the world.Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park also has its fair share of interesting rock formations, with jagged, black basalt left behind by ancient pyroclastic flows emanating from the Earth’s crust. This park is excellent for a myriad of activities, like hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and more. Keeping with the theme, Lava Beds National Monument is another reminder of the volcanic activity in the area, with labyrinth-like caves, underground ecosystems, archaeological sites, and fantastic vantage points.The absolute best place to learn about the volcanoes and complex geological history of California is Lassen Volcanic National Park, no more than two hours’ drive from Mount Shasta City KOA. This incredible park is home to Mount Lassen, a 10,000-foot-tall peak that dominates the skyline. Each of the four major types of volcanoes exists in this vast, volcanically active wonderland, from cinder cones to plug dome volcanoes. In fact, the largest plug dome volcano in the world can be found in the park, so hiking through and observing these strange formations is a great way to make the most of your motorhome rental trip.

Exploring the City

While there are a few attractions in Mount Shasta, most of the town’s appeal is the abundance of magnificent natural beauty that envelopes it. There are plenty of eateries and locally owned shops in the area, but driving to Redding is perhaps your best bet to seek out some more attractions and a larger city atmosphere. There you can see places like the Cascade Theatre, a lavish, Art-Deco style theater that hosts live performances, from musicals to concerts and everything in between. Also in Redding, there is a massive water park that does a great job entertaining people of all ages, with pools, slides, splash pads, lazy rivers, and other water features.If you want to stick close to your home base while RV camping at Mount Shasta City KOA, you can still have a fantastic time in town. The Mount Shasta Sisson Museum is a lovely place to learn a thing or two, especially with regard to Siskiyou County and Mount Shasta’s local history. This well-organized museum has Native American artifacts, beautiful old photographs, antique furniture, and model train sets for young ones to play with, all inside a refurbished building built over 150 years ago.If you seek a bit of adventure and adrenaline, Mount Shasta Ski Park is nearby, with a distinctly local vibe. Instead of massive ski resort amenities, you find a rustic lodge and alpine fun in the amazing mountains of California.

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.
