La Mesa RV Experience Life
Are you ready to explore the open road?

RV shows present a rare opportunity to see many recreational vehicles without driving from RV dealer to RV dealer. Most RV shows charge an admission, but ours is FREE.  For many RVers, it’s an opportunity to see such a wide range of motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, truck campers and even pop up trailers in one place, often at special “show prices.” 
The RV brands vary at each show and include new RVs from top names like Winnebago, Tiffin, Fleetwood RV, American Coach, Heartland, Thor Motor Coach, Dutchmen, Leisure Travel Vans, Roadtrek, Vanleigh RV and more! RV shows also offer a great selection of certified used motor homes and other used RVs.

The road to the creation of Cal Expo began with the state’s 1948 purchase of 1,000 undeveloped acres, which would partially be used as the site of the new fairgrounds.
It was not until the early 1960s, however, that funds were allocated and more specific planning began for the construction of the Cal Expo fair site, which would replace the Stockton Boulevard fair site, which opened in 1909.

Many of the RV shows are in the country’s top RV destinations, including Arizona, Florida, California, and New Mexico. RV show parking and admission are often Free and many even allow you to bring your pets.

California Love:Your Ultimate Guide To Camping

The Guide To Camping In California's 9 National Parks



If you have a love for the great outdoors, California is the place to be. Do you want to know where to go camping and RVing? Here is a  guide to all nine of the state's national parks:


There are nine official national parks, so California has no shortage of opportunities for hiking and camping. You could be marveling over the waterfalls at Yosemite or hiking through some of the tallest trees in the world at Sequoia. Each park has something special to offer. The cool part is that most sites have campgrounds that can accommodate RVs overnight. For campers, here's a guide to where you can set up a tent (or pull up in your motorhome) at each of these national treasures.

1. Yosemite National Park



There are at least 13 maintained campgrounds across the park, ten of which can accommodate RVs and trailers (including fifth-wheels) of various lengths. We believe that seven of them accept reservations, which are an absolute must during the summer because it will get so crowded. Even campgrounds that are on a first come, first-serve basis usually fill up before noon, so make sure to plan accordingly.

Electrical, water, and sewer hookups may not be available, but there are dump stations with fresh water at the highly rated Upper Pines Campground all year, and near Wawona and Tuolumne Meadows Campgrounds during the summer.

2. Death Valley National Park



As the name might suggest, Death Valley is one of the hottest places in the world at the height of summertime, along with deserts in Africa and the Middle East. The desert landscape is made up of deep canyons, salt flats, and sand dunes. It sits in the eastern California and Nevada border in the Great Basin, east of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

For some, this might be considered a perfect winter destination because the national park has many campgrounds, many of which are open all year and occupied on a first come, first-served basis. Wildrose Campground includes sites for vehicles less than 25 feet, with water, tables, and firepits.

3. Pinnacles National Park



Pinnacles National Park provides isolation among disintegrated rock formations, only a few hours outside of San Francisco. Like Death Valley, the park is more mainstream in the cooler months because temperatures are terribly high in mid-year. The park is most enjoyed in the spring when the grass is green and brilliant wildflowers line the trails.

Their campground must be reached from the east side of the park. However, it's all well integrated with tent and RV destinations. The vast majority of the RV locales have electrical hookups, share group tables and BBQ pits, and are sometimes shaded underneath oak trees. Showers and a dump station are accessible along with a natural swimming pool (open from the middle of April through the end of September). Pets are permitted; however, as with most places, they should be kept on a leash at all times. For more information, look at Pinnacles Campground on RV Park Reviews.

4. Joshua Tree National Park


Defined by its famous Joshua trees and rock formations, Joshua Tree National Park has a beautiful landscape. The area, which is located in southeastern California about 140 miles east of Los Angeles, offers scores of opportunities for photography, rock climbing, and hiking for both adults and kids.

Campgrounds are marked across the park with a number of campsites that are mostly first come, first-served. Hookups aren't available, but there are restrooms and RV-accessible water provisions at Black Rock and Cottonwood Spring campgrounds. RVs can also be at the Hidden Valley and White Tank campgrounds, but they cannot exceed a maximum length of 25 feet.

5. Redwood National Park


Redwood National and State Parks will amaze you with their beautiful temperate rainforest. This is home to tall ancient trees, miles of hiking trails, and camping at four campgrounds in the backcountry.
It's been said that in the summer, reservations are essential. All campgrounds welcome RVs and tent campers, but hookups aren't available.

6. Channel Islands National Park


There is no need to fly to Hawaii; just visit Channel Islands National Park. It is known to provide a closer island paradise, and it is just off the Californian coast. Fortunately, there is camping available year-round on each of the five islands, but for RVers, it's very primitive.


7. & 8. Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks



Kings Canyon is adjacent to Sequoia National Park in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, but they are simply managed together as Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. They're known for their huge sequoia trees and have fourteen campgrounds total. The park is home to rattlesnakes, bears, and cougars.

9. Lassen Volcanic National Park



Lassen Volcanic National Park is in Northern California in the town of Mineral. It's rich in hydrothermal sites, the largest being  Bumpass Hell with its acres of bubbling mud pots. Some say the summit of Lassen Peak Volcano offers the best views surrounding the wilderness.

There is much to see and even more, ground to cover. You have to ask yourself, "When will I be traveling to these national parks?" Which one is at the top of your list?

Wherever you are in the country, going to a National Park can be an adventure as well as an opportunity to discover the joy of RVing. There are so many parks that it makes sense to stop by a local RV dealer and get the RV that will allow you to experience all the sights.
