Visiting San Bernardino National Forest provides a seemingly endless array of opportunities to see a large swatch of Southern California. The forest is close to the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego to the west, Bakersfield to the north, and Las Vegas a bit further to the east. There are lots of national forests and wilderness areas, and several national parks are in close proximity. Driving an RV as you journey through the forest and beyond is an excellent avenue to everything you most want to visit.
