RV camping in Southern California guide

Overview

Southern California conjures images of sun, sand, and surf, but there’s a wealth of diverse outdoor attractions to explore by RV in this region that spans from the Pacific Ocean to the San Bernardino Mountains to the Mojave Desert. State parks and beaches can be found all along the coast and offer waves, rugged scenery, fishing, and hiking opportunities—favorites include Emma Wood in Ventura, Point Mugu and Topanga State Park in Malibu, Huntington State Beach in Orange County, and Torrey Pines north of San Diego. Mountain lovers will want to check out Big Bear Lake for boating or skiing, while wine enthusiasts will be at home in Temecula Valley. Further inland, the desert city of Palm Springs sits near the arid landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park. RV options vary widely from RV resorts with pools to state park campgrounds that may not have hookups but offer prime locations. Expect mostly dry camping in the desert.
