If you’re prepared for a bit of a journey, you can reach the Pacific Ocean in all its glory. The same goes for the San Bernardino National Forest and all its wilderness areas. Closer to your luxury RV in Palomar Mountain, you’ll find Fallbrook, the Avocado Capital of the World and Pauma Valley, where you can visit tribal casinos.

Discover Palomar Mountain

The Great Palomar Mountain Outdoors

You don’t have to leave Palomar Mountain to experience the outdoors, but really close to the community you’ll find Palomar Mountain State Park, well worth some of your time. Here you can walk for miles along trails through pine, fir, and cedar trees, and for the fishing enthusiast, there’s trout in Doane Pond. There are plenty of vistas with stunning panoramic views, whether you prefer the ocean or the desert. Stop by Silvercrest Vista, where you can see a blanket of fluffy clouds.

A little bit farther away from that RV trailer rental in Palomar Mountain, the beautiful Hellhole Canyon Preserve is located. Hiking the trails here you’ll see majestic sycamore and oak trees, and if you don’t mind a challenge, you can hike up to the top of Rodriguez Mountain where you can see the Pacific on a clear day. Whether you reach the top or not, you’ll be surrounded by fantastic nature views. Just don’t forget your water if you’re visiting in the summer.

For some fun water adventures, all you need to do is drive for a bit through Cleveland State Forest and you’ll arrive at Lake Henshaw. Apart from the scenic views of the lake and the surrounding forest and mountains, here you can rent a boat and enjoy some open water. If you haven’t had enough of fishing yet, in this lake, you can find both catfish and carp. Once a year there’s a fishing tournament you can enter, and if the fish won’t bite there’s a restaurant nearby, so no one will have to leave hungry.

RV Parks in Palomar Mountain

There are plenty of campgrounds around, but most of them won’t allow RVs. However, if you’d prefer to stay in the forest and say goodbye to luxury and comfort for a while, Fry Creek Campground is a very good option to consider. Here you’ll find no electricity for your RV, and only pit toilets and water. Ideal for anyone who wants to experience some authentic wildlife. During the night, there are places nearby where you can watch the stars that can be so hard to see in the city.

Should you prefer to have a warm shower and somewhere to wash your clothes, no need to worry; there are a couple more parks not very far from your RV rental in Palomar Mountain. At Woods Valley Kampground and RV Park, some 20 miles away, you’ll be offered full hookups, restrooms, and even a store on site. When you’ve done your laundry, take a swim in the pool or go say hello to the on-site farm animals, perfect if you have your kids with you.

Another good option to consider is the All Seasons RV Park, which also has full hookups, laundry facilities, and a swimming pool. On top of this, there’s both cable TV and Wi-Fi and also a convenience store on site. There are no major supermarkets in or around Palomar Mountain; you’ll have to go to Valley Center to find the closest one. Gas stations are fairly sparse, so make sure to fill your RV up when you get the opportunity. What if you want a snack or have forgotten your water bottle? No problem, there are grocery stores in Palomar Mountain.

Exploring Palomar Mountain

Finding things to do in the community itself can be rather difficult but don’t let that ruin your plans to book an RV in Palomar Mountain; there’s a restaurant or two that are happy to provide you with their services and other attractions nearby. The Palomar Observatory is also very close. Owned and operated by Caltech, the observatory has large telescopes and a museum where you can have a look around. There are also guided tours, and if you prefer exploring on your own, you can do that too.

If you’re thirsty after all the hiking, visiting the Palomar Artesian Springs could be a lifesaver. Here, clean, fresh spring water is being bottled and you can both taste the natural goodness and see the spring itself. The pure water has attracted people throughout history; the location was a seasonal stopping place for the nomadic Luiseno people and when the large roads in the area were built, the road builders working on them made the spring water popular.

If you don’t mind leaving Palomar Mountain and feel especially adventurous, a visit to a zip line course is a must. You can take a guided tour that includes multiple thrilling zip line courses. The views are fantastic, and it’s great for the whole family. Surely you don’t need anything else to convince you that Palomar Mountain is a great destination, so go book that RV right now.
