What better time is there to enjoy the wonders of nature than when our corner of the earth is awakening again after its winter slumber? It’s time to plan your spring break getaway, and traveling around in an RV from Advantage Caravans is the perfect way to take in the views offered by the most scenic lakes in California. Here are five of the best lakes to visit in an RV rental or travel trailer rental over your spring break.

RV camping by lake

1. Lake Tahoe

 This freshwater lake, known as “The Jewel of the Sierra,” boasts breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Lake Tahoe offers the convenience of full service campgrounds as well as more secluded wilderness camping. As this popular destination sees over 15 million visitors each year, the spring season is the perfect time to visit with its smaller crowds. And the mild spring temperatures provide the best conditions for hikes and bike rides.

2. Shasta Lake 

Shasta Lake is California’s largest reservoir with stunning views of Mt. Shasta’s peak. There are activities to enjoy in each season, but visitors who prefer a quieter experience tend to come before the busy summer season. There are different campgrounds available depending on your camping preference.

3. Lake Sonoma 

Resting in the foothills of Sonoma County and surrounded by famous vineyards, you will find Lake Sonoma. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy many activities here including hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. There are hundreds of campsites around the lake.

4. Fallen Leaf Lake

Can you think of a lake that sounds more charming than Fallen Leaf Lake? This lake is also very close to Lake Tahoe and is known as the lake that is hidden in plain sight. It’s tucked away and provides more seclusion than its more populous neighbor, which makes it the perfect spot to visit in your RV. Enjoy the lush green of spring as the backdrop to your outdoor activities while you explore this hidden gem.

5. Donner Lake

Another destination known for its spectacular views, Donner Lake offers plenty of campgrounds and water activities. It’s not too far from Lake Tahoe and so perhaps you could experience both in one trip. What really lures visitors here is the picturesque lake set against a backdrop of forest and mountains.
