With neighbors such as Laguna Niguel and Oceanside. Search for an RV in Orange County and get to tour some of the best beaches on the West Coast.

San Clemente is home to the most popular beach in California and keeping in mind the surreal beaches in the West Coast, that is no minor feat. Stretching between the foot of a steep bluff and the ocean surf, the mile-long beach is a haven for watersport fanatics and those who simply wish to escape the inland heat and bustling cities. Once you’re RV camping at San Clemente State Beach, it’ll be easy to understand why San Clemente truly earns the slogan "Spanish village by the sea." When it comes to the number of activities to enjoy in this park, you’ll not be disappointed.

Getting Outdoors

When someone mentions Southern California, the pristine beaches and intense winds come to mind. It would be crazy to complete a tour of the region without pointing your RV rental towards the coast. The four-mile coastline is divided into a couple of popular beaches including the San Clemente City Beach, North Beach, and the San Clemente State Beach. Some of them are fully equipped with amenities to make your swimming experience memorable. After getting enough of beach wading and snorkeling, why not try some more intense stuff, such as surfing or skin-diving for lobster.

At the heart of city beach stands the San Clemente Pier, a must see whenever you’re in the area. Stretching out for more than 1920 feet into the Pacific, it is one of the longest of its kind in Southern California. The pier and its famous clock tower offer picturesque views of the city and the ocean both during the day and at night. Being a common fishing spot, it’s common to see anglers lining the sides as they try out their luck. Summer, howeve,r is the real deal. If you don’t do well in waters deeper than a bathtub, you’ll enjoy watching the fearless surfers catching some massive waves. Be sure to pack an action camera into your San Clemente camper rental for some incredible shots.

It’s hard to have a memorable vacation without some hiking. Since the trails aren’t long, the whole family will get to enjoy some hours in the sun exploring the bluffs along the beach. More experienced hikers will love the San Clemente Coastal Trail which winds down the coastline for five miles from the North Beach Train Station to the San Clemente State Beach. Apart from the fact that its pet-friendly, the trail even has pet hygiene stations along the way, not forgetting restrooms for humans. If you’re up for a romantic walk, take your better half out for a walk during the cool starry night.

Camping at San Clemente State Beach

What makes the park popular among San Clemente campers is its proximity to the beach. The San Clemente State Beach campground has a total of 160 campsites, 72 of which have water, electric, and sewer hookups. The asphalt pull-thru sites are big rig accessible and neatly spaced apart, accessibility won’t be a problem.

Additional amenities include an amphitheater, hot showers, and firewood is available for sale. Don’t leave your pets at home as they are welcomed. You’ll also have direct access to the beach through a short trail.

Exploring the Area

Judging from the amazing qualities of the park, it’s no surprise that the surrounding area is just as incredible. Downtown San Clemente is perfect for a lazy afternoon stroll doing some shopping with the family. To be precise, the Avenida Del Mar is the town’s shopping Mecca.

After some hours walking around town, having some dinner would be a great idea. While at it, why not try some fine Italian staples for a change. After some fine dining, hop into a classy wine bar and unwind over some good cocktails. For a broader menu, consider driving your San Clemente camper rental over to Dana Point.

History buffs will find the magnificent Casa Romantica Cultural Centre interesting. Resting on glamorous landscaped gardens facing the San Clemente Pier, the historic building is a sight to behold. It now serves as a function center and a museum.
