Commercial Rentals

Camp-California works very closely with RV rental agencies in California to provide the Camper’s Guide to California in every rig. Our friends include Cruise America and El Monte RV as well as many private dealerships with their own rental fleets. See a contact list here.

When you roll into a campground in a fleet wrapped rig, expect to receive warm greetings and offers of help from veteran RVers.

Another distinct advantage of renting from a commercial fleet includes a host of upgrades to enhance your experience and the durability of the rig. Decades of renting to new RVers have delivered insight into the most valued features for the best experience. See this walk-thru provided by Cruise America.


Private Rentals

Also growing rapidly in popularity are platforms for renting an RV from a private owner. It’s going to be the most personalized customer service experience you can find, complete with tips on the unique features and personality of the vehicle you’re renting. There are many options of RV style to choose from, each with an availability schedule. There are even options for renting an RV already delivered to the site of your choice and set up – no driving required! It could take some research, but there are quite a few options for finding your match.

And who knows? Before you know it you may even  find yourself adopting the lifestyle and renting out your own new rig!

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
