Discover Oceanside, CA


When schools close for summer and you're looking for a break from congested city life, this Southern California beach town is the perfect place to plan your vacation. As well as gorgeous beaches, Oceanside offers year-round sunshine and an abundance of water activities including surfing, scuba diving, and cruising. With an extensive network of bike trails and adventure sports such as skydiving available, this coastal city is extremely popular with outdoorsy people. While renting an RV in Oceanside you’ll be able to explore the surrounding coastline and nearby state parks.


The charming city center is also proud to present innovative gastronomy and elegant restaurants with cuisine from all around the world, but that’s not all because Oceanside is also a city pushing for locally grown foods and are already known for their locally brewed beers. Each Thursday morning, Oceanside hosts a busy Farmers Market where you can pick up fresh produce, and Lucky Street Vintage Market is the place to shopping for bargains. When it comes to nightlife there are plenty of weekly events to choose from, including Trivia Nights, Karaoke, Comedy Nights, and Live Music, hosted by local bars near the beachfront.


Oceanside is conveniently located between the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego on the Coast Highway 101. There are daily connections to San Diego via The Coaster rail line as well as lines connecting Oceanside to Escondido, San Bernardino, and Santa Barbara.


The Great Outdoors


Oceanside is a recommended RV rental city because it provides a convenient base for visiting some of California’s best state parks and nature reserves. Just an hour from the city is the Palomar Mountain State Park. This 1,862-acre forest is home to a mixture of conifers, cedar, pine and fir trees, it boasts countless hiking trails, beautiful coastal views from mountain meadows, fishing ponds, and RV friendly campsites where you can settle in with your Oceanside camper rental.


Another option is to drive your RV from Oceanside to the Borrego Desert State Park, located a couple of hours from Oceanside in the Colorado desert. This park is a vast contrast from the lush forests of Palomar Mountain. Instead, there is a ‘Pumpkin Patch’ rock forest to see, dry canyons to hike, and coyotes to spot. Adventure lovers can also join a 4WD or ATV off-road tour to feel the adrenaline while discovering the highlights of this lunar-like landscape.


Back on the western coast, the Torrey Pines State Nature Park is also worth a visit. Located on the outskirts of San Diego, this coastal nature park is one of the wildest stretches of coastline remaining in the region. Inside the 1,500-acre boundary of the park, you can still find largely untouched beaches, magnificent cliffs of historic significance and enough variety of flora and fauna to keep you enchanted while hiking forest trails. Start your search for an RV in Oceanside and you’ll be one step closer to soaking in everything this incredible park has to offer.


RV Parks


Oceanside has two very good RV Parks located within the city. The Oceanside RV Park is within walking distance of Oceanside Harbour and Pier. This is a great place to stay if you want to feel the atmosphere of the city center while you rent an RV in Oceanside; the park offers Wi-Fi, 30 AMP hook-ups and fenced camping areas. Onsite there are also restrooms and laundry facilities, a spa, and an outdoor swimming pool.


Another great place to stay is the Paradise by the Sea Resort opposite the Buccaneer Beach Park. This resort is the perfect spot for family vacations, as well as the facilities mentioned above, the park has a Recreation room with PlayStation, Wii, and iPad Corner, ideal for keeping the kids entertained.


When you rent an RV in California you will usually find campsites within the state parks but size restrictions may be enforced. For example, only RV trailers or motorhomes of up to 35 feet are allowed inside the Borrego Desert State Park. Be sure to check ahead when you book an RV in Oceanside so you can enjoy the area without any worries about finding a good spot.


Exploring the City


On arrival to the city the best thing do is pay a visit to the California Welcome Center, where you’ll be able to get full details of events taking place in and around Oceanside or purchase tickets for attractions. The staff there can point you and your rental RV in the right direction for whatever you’re planning to check out.


If you’ve decided to visit sunny California then you’ll probably want to spend at least a day or two on the beach. The city has 3 miles of undisrupted beach and turquoise water, backed by a palm-lined boardwalk. The beach is separated into areas, each of which has its own appeal. Harbor Beach, for example, is ideal for socializing, surfing and playing volleyball, whereas Breakwater Way provides a family-friendly space, and if you’re looking for some peace and quiet then you can head to the city’s furthest beach, Buccaneer Beach. No matter your preference, you can park your rented travel trailer or motorhome in Oceanside and enjoy the best of every beach.


There's more to Oceanside than sandy beaches. This Californian vacation destination hosts a wealth of history which visitors can discover by visiting the Heritage Park Village Museum or the Oceanside Historical Museum. Meanwhile, culture lovers can pay a visit to the Museum of Making Music or the Mira Costa Art Gallery and College Theatre. Among the most popular attractions in and around Oceanside are the Public Library, the Harbor Village, the Pier, the Universal Studios of Hollywood, LEGOLAND California Resort, Disneyland California, The San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and San Diego Safari park. RV rentals in Oceanside make it easy to reach many of California’s most popular destinations.

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.

How much are average RV rentals?

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.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

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. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

How many people can sleep in an RV?

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!

Why choose Outdoorsy vs Craigslist or Airbnb?

Security, for one. Outdoorsy helps protect RV owners and renters with excellent support and insurance options, and a secure platform for listings, communication, and payments. There are plenty of other reasons though, like roadside assistance, detailed listings, and a wide variety of RVs to choose from.
