Discover Pismo Beach, CA


Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, in the central coast of California, is the tiny town of Pismo Beach. This quaint seaside village is just waiting to be explored; begin the quest for beachy oceanfront adventures with a search for an RV rental in Pismo Beach. Known for its beaches, butterflies, and wineries, this classic beach town begs for a visit. Take a break, slow down and enjoy the sweeping ocean views on the next excursion with your campervan or travel trailer rental in Pismo Beach.


Experience the Sites and Scenery


Adventure opportunities are endless on a Pismo Beach RV rental vacation. This park-friendly city has over a dozen small to medium sized parks throughout the city. Take in the ocean views that go on for miles from the blufftop Dinosaur Caves Park. A park that’s friendly to adults and children alike, Dinosaur Caves Park offers much to explore, including a unique dinosaur-themed playground, oceanfront lookout points, and a lush green space. Want to drive the RV rental right out onto the beach? You can, at Oceano Dunes. This State Vehicular Recreation Area welcomes RVs, motorhomes and travel trailers to park right on the beach. Imagine being at the ocean’s edge, with the comforts of your RV rental right on site. It sounds pretty amazing; be sure to check it out. Visitors and residents alike report that the best place to take in a stunning California coast sunset is from Margo Dodd Park, with its clifftop vantage point overlooking the open ocean. Access the beach and explore tide pools, or get involved in a snorkeling excursion. This park is also a prime location for some breathtaking photo ops and marine wildlife watching during your Pismo Beach camper rental adventure. When it’s time to branch out a bit, head out to the Los Padres National Forest, located about 35 miles from town. This 1.75 million-acre mountainous expanse of protected land offers access to various wilderness areas for hiking, wildlife watching and fishing. The park houses 11 campgrounds across its vast terrain, offering plenty of options for parking the Pismo Beach camper rental and staying awhile. Back towards the coast, about 25 miles Northwest of Pismo Beach, lies the huge oceanside park of Montaña de Oro State Park. The park’s name translates to ‘the Mountain of Gold’ in reference to the golden wildflowers that bloom across the park’s seaside landscape in spring. You don’t have to make it a day trip to visit this gorgeous park; campsites are available here for your camper rental, too.


City Attractions


This coastal town is a hub for water adventures of all kinds. From guided scuba diving and snorkeling to kayaking and surfing of all kinds, your Pismo Beach rental by owner trip opens up a variety of opportunities to interact with the ocean. For a less hands-on oceanic experience,  visits to the Pismo Pier or the Eldwayen Ocean Park provide awesome ocean views and opportunities to explore sandy beaches and tide pools. Venture out on a winery tour and enjoy the views on the way to touring and tasting the local wines that the Pismo Beach wine country has to offer.


What’s Unique


When planning the vacation with your rental camper in Pismo Beach, there are some unique points of interest in this coastal community. If you’re visiting the area from late October to early Spring, a stop just north of Grover Beach at the Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo State Beach is a must. Each year, thousands of monarch butterflies migrate to the beach’s Eucalyptus trees to seek refuge from the cold northern winters. The butterflies seem to love this peaceful place and so will you. When exploring the streets of Pismo Beach, you may find yourself appreciating an interesting form of ‘art’ in Bubble Gum Alley. Visitors come to this 70’ alley to deposit their used chewing gum in a productive and artful manner. So chew away and leave your mark on this chompy mosaic creation. With the high concentration of wineries in the area, book a Full Day Wine Adventure and enjoy a grape-based taste of the area during your Pismo Beach travel trailer rental vacation.


Where to Park It


There are a lot of campsite choices for your camper rental in Pismo Beach. The area is sprinkled with quite a few small-scale RV parks and campgrounds, with many offering stunning ocean and canyon views. For a convenient, budget-friendly stay, Walmart is located just Northeast of the center of town. If the Walmart scene isn’t quite for you, there are also usually ways to locate some pretty sweet free campsites in the surrounding areas. As previously noted, there are some prime RV rental camper sites available in the Los Padres National Forest. Get off the beaten path in the Santa Lucia Wilderness with its primitive backcountry camping sites or seek out a modern site in one of the private RV parks. Montaña de Oro State Park is another serene spot to park the RV rental and take in some cliffside ocean views.


The Food


There are a variety of grocery stores located along the 101, so access to supplies for campfire cooking are within easy reach. When taking a break from food prep, enjoy some award-winning seafood at one of the beachside restaurants. Clam chowder and other seafood dishes are available all over town. Each restaurant has its own take on the local coastal cuisine and there are a variety of eateries from which to choose.

Book an RV rental in Pismo Beach and capture the feeling of seaside living in this small coastal city. From the unique attractions to the picturesque oceanfront scenery, a vacation with the RV rental in Pismo Beach is one you’ll probably want to repeat.

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.
