Despite the gorgeous hotels that line Huntington Beach on Pacific Coast Highway, there's only one way to truly capture the ultimate ocean view—RV camping. Set up your campsite on wheels at one of the Surf City USA's three RV camping lots.

Huntington Beach photographer and local Candace Rock enjoys mini vacations with her family in their Airstream at their favorite spot, Sunset Vista RV Campground.

“Our favorite part is meeting new people and other campers. We have had a few trailers but the Airstream has been the most fun. It's a conversation starter and everybody wants to peek inside,” Rock said. “We have met so many interesting people while camping at Sunset Vista, and some have become lifelong friends.”

A seasoned RV camping veteran, Rock keeps it simple during her family’s mini getaways in Huntington Beach and takes advantage of all that Surf City USA has to offer. 

“Just come with a good, laid-back attitude and be ready to have fun. You can people watch right from your site, swim in the ocean, play on the beach, take a pier walk, roast s’mores over one of the many fire pits right out front of the campsite and on the beach, bike ride, or visit Downtown or Pacific City,” Rock said. “Possibilities are endless. Just be ready to have a good time.”
