West Sacramento, California is unsurprisingly located just outside of California’s capital city on the western border of Sacramento. California was still part of Mexico back in 1844 when the first European settlers began arriving in West Sacramento. The great gold rush in the mid-19th century solidified West Sacramento as a major destination for people to settle in, and with the arrival of the railroads, the population of the Sacramento area skyrocketed.
West Sacramento is considered one of the best areas to live and visit within the Sacramento metro area. When you book an RV in West Sacramento you'll find yourself between the coast and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and there will be so many places to see during your travels. San Francisco and Oakland in the Bay Area are only a few hours' drive away, as are many of the national forests and parks to the east.
Depending on what direction you head after you rent an RV in West Sacramento, there are nearly unlimited parks and forests to find and explore in Northern California. One of the more popular recreation areas near California’s capital city is Folsom Lake, the entirety of which is surrounded by campgrounds, recreation areas, and forests. Folsom Lake State Recreation Area attracts millions of people each year who hope to escape the hectic day-to-day grind of Sacramento and beyond to get lost in nature. The lake itself is fantastic for kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming, fishing, tubing, and waterskiing. There are several campgrounds to stay at along the water for you and your West Sacramento camper rental, such as Mormon Islands Wetlands State Park or Beals Campground.
Lake Berryessa is a large lake much like Folsom Lake, except it is located west of the city rather than east. The reservoir is located in the Vaca Mountains of Central California, surrounded by rolling green hills and divine beaches. You can do everything on the lake like boating, kayaking, swimming, and fishing, and of course, camping is an option when you rent an RV and bring it to one of the campgrounds on the lake.
El Dorado National Forest is one of several sprawling, federally-maintained forests in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of eastern California, where you can bring your West Sacramento RV rental for a stay. The forest is home to world-famous Lake Tahoe along with Tahoe National Forest and there are millions of acres to explore between the two. Lake Tahoe itself is worthy of its own vacation, with some of the purest, clearest, and deepest water imaginable. This massive alpine lake is a popular destination all year round, with summertime recreation abundant in the warmer months and world-class skiing and snowboarding after the first snow. The national forests are playgrounds for outdoors enthusiasts to delight in, with so much to do and see while trekking through the backcountry wilderness. Each national forest is equipped with copious amounts of campgrounds so finding a place to camp out with your West Sacramento motorhome rental is a breeze.

SacWest RV Park & Campground is also located in the heart of West Sacramento, with peaceful cabins on the water, RV sites, a heated pool, and a bar & grill. Sherwood Harbor Marina & RV Park has its own marina and is on the riverfront.

The most unique building in West Sacramento is The Ziggurat building, named for the step pyramids of ancient Mesopotamia. Architect Edwin Kado designed this strange building on the banks of the Sacramento River and it now houses offices for businesses. There is not much to do aside from look at and photograph The Ziggurat, but it is a minor landmark worth mentioning.
