You’ll have a difficult time trying to find a state with better scenery and potential for outdoor recreation than California, especially when you rent an RV near Lakehead. Dozens of state parks, federally managed forests, and national parks are within easy reach, so there is no limit to the fun you can have. Castle Crags State Park is one place nearby that is excellent for hiking, with massive rocky spires resembling castle towers. These volcanic remnants are amazing to see in person, and the views from these lofty vantage points also impress.Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park is another natural area nearby that is worth visiting with your Lakehead motorhome rental, with excellent campsites to accommodate you overnight.

This magical evergreen wonderland is home to five wilderness areas, 6,000 miles of waterways, countless lakes, and a dozen camping areas for rustic camping.California is known for its exceptional national parks, but if you only have time to visit one, Lassen Volcanic National Park is the closest to your RV park. This surreal park is a geological hotspot, with all four major types of volcanoes represented within its limits. Explore lava fields on foot, climb rocky landmarks, or hike to the top of Lassen Peak itself when you see this incredible nature park for yourself.

The Sundial Bridge next to the park is a stunning and unique design, equal parts innovative, stylish, and convenient.If the temperatures are running high, the waterpark in Redding is the place to be.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
