Information About San Jose, CA
With the Bay Area to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east, renting an RV in San Jose, California, lets you make the most of your vacation. San Jose was California’s first settlement and its original capitol and is the current largest city in Northern California. The city is full of quirks: check out the largest skate park in California at Alum Rock, visit the most interesting haunted house in the world, and or play on a life-sized monopoly board in a downtown park. It’s easy to get a tan from the California sunshine by visiting one (or several!) of the beaches, state parks, or national parks around the area. Search for an RV in San Jose, CA, and extend your trip to visit the majestic Redwoods, awe-inspiring Half Dome, or relaxing wine country.
The Great Outdoors
San Jose is in the Bay Area, right off the coast. Rent an RV by owner in San Jose and drive along the famous Highway 1 to find the perfect beach and take in the view of the rocky cliffs and impossibly blue ocean waves. Head southwest to visit Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, and camp overnight in the breathtaking Big Basin Redwoods State Park. If you can’t get enough of the beaches and redwoods, continue south to Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground, which is a 15-minute drive to Pfeiffer Beach, and stay there a few days. Pinnacles National Park is in that area, formed 23 million years ago by a volcanic explosion which left behind looming spires of rock and talus caves. Novice and advanced climbers will find routes to both challenge and inspire them, and hikers can find everything from quick and easy trails to longer hikes that wind from the grasslands to the caves.
There are numerous state parks closer to the city, including Alum Rock Park with its mineral springs and native wildlife (lucky hikers might get to see mountain lions or bobcats – but please, respect their space and keep your distance). Head north towards San Francisco to visit McNee Ranch State Park, known for its hilly hikes and ocean views. On the opposite side of the Bay is Rock City Park, with holey rock faces and stunning panoramic views. Adventure seekers will want to trek east in their San Jose RV rental and drive to Yosemite National Park. You’ll find granite mountains, glassy lakes, waterfalls, forests, and the iconic Half Dome. You can see the sights from your luxury San Jose RV rental on the Yosemite auto-touring routes, or plan a picnic and kick back to take it all in.
Most of the state and national parks around the area have campgrounds where you can stay in your San Jose camper rental. You can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves at the Half Moon Bay State Beach campgrounds, which allow trailers and campers up to 40 feet long. There are also several beach campsites along Monterey Bay, including the Santa Cruz/ Monterey Bay KOA Holiday, Seacliff Center RV Park, or Sunset State Beach campground. Nothing beats winding down from a day full of exploration like relaxing in the sand watching the sun set over the Pacific.
