The Great Outdoors

With the Pacific Ocean on one side and vast state parks on the other, you will never run out of natural spots to visit when you opt for an RV trailer rental in National City. Experience the warm water of San Diego Bay and pay a visit to Silver Strand State Beach. This vast beach welcomes RVers, so you can stay overnight and enjoy swimming, surfing, and snorkeling for a couple of days. If you want to take a dip in the ocean, you can choose the ocean side of the beach. Visitors can also go fishing or stay on dry land and try hiking and biking along the shore.

Cabrillo National Monument is another place where you can admire the Pacific coast and learn something about the history of the area. Unlike the beach, visitors can explore the intertidal area and come face to face with the marine life hiding in the tide pools. At the tip of the Point Loma Peninsula, it offers stunning views of San Diego and the rugged ocean shore. Starting from the iconic Old Point Loma Lighthouse, adventurers can follow a trail leading to some excellent spots for whale watching.

A favorite of both the locals and the outdoor enthusiasts visiting the area, Mission Trails Regional Park is a vast area of rolling hills and grassy meadows where you can come in your National City RV rental and stay for a while. Miles of trails meander through the park and are great for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Try boating on Lake Murray or challenge yourself while rock climbing on the steep mountainsides.

Less than an hour's drive to the northeast, you will find Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. With two campgrounds, picturesque creeks, and miles of trails, it is a perfect spot for you and your National City motorhome rental. Stonewall Peak and Cuyamaca Peak are perfect spots for taking in the wonderful panoramas of vast deserts on one side and the ocean on the other.
