Labor Day weekend is upon us! Who doesn’t love an extra day to relax, spend time with loved ones and maybe get outta dodge? In California the weather is begging for an end of summer getaway in your motorhome or conversion van!
Owning a Campervan or Conversion Van is a great for turning any 3-day weekend into a mini vacation. Motorhomes and Vans can comfortably take you to your destination and provide everything from overnight accommodations, restrooms, showers and even home cooked meals.
Take a look at the list bellow of easy and fun Labor Day weekend trips using your campervan or conversion van.
Highway 1 (Northern/Central California)
Take a drive on scenic Highway 1 and explore the mighty beauty of California’s Northern part of the Central coast. An easy 2 hour drive from San Francisco and around 5 hours from Los Angeles make Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur a fantastic destination for a long weekend. Visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. Check out the rugged coastline and pristine Cypress tree’s along Carmel’s coast. Drive the Bixby Bridge through Big Sur (which has recently re-opened after massive mudslide’s) and explore where the mountains meet the coast.
Sequoia National Park (Eastern/South Central California)
Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon are the forgotten jewels of the South Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Explore the majestic and mighty sequoia trees, adored by famous naturalist John Muir. Less visitors make Sequoia National Park an easy destination for an RV/Camping trip.
Napa & Sonoma Counties (Northern California)
You may not think that camping and wine country are a pair, but think again! Napa and Sonoma Counties feature breathtaking drives through lush valleys as well as the romantic Northern California coast. Alexander Valley (on the way up to Mendocino) and Cloverdale are great destinations for a Motorhome or Conversion Van campout. Check out the Sonoma Coast, especially Bodega Bay for a cooler reprieve from the heat of the Valley.
Anza Borrego Desert
If you are all about the summer heat, Anza Borrego Desert is a great spot for Desert RV/Camping. Surrounded by dramatic Desert Mountains, Anza Borrego is the perfect destination for sun and stunning desert sunsets. For places to stay, look into the Anza Borrego State Park RV Resort as well as the Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course.
Patrick’s Point State Park
Located in the heart of the California Redwood Coast, Patrick’s Point State Park is a hidden delight. The park is lesser known but an incredibly scenic place to set up camp for a couple of days. Drive 25 miles North of Eureka in Humboldt County.
Fern Basin Campground
Located 6 miles North of Idyllwild in the San Bernardino National Forest, Fern Basin Campground is a great place to disconnect from the chaos of Los Angeles. Rock climbing, fishing, swimming, hiking and boating are easily accessible.
