California Rest Area Locations

California rest areas are typically roadside facilities that provide at a minimum parking and restrooms. Although many have information kiosks, vending machines and picnic areas. There are several that have RV dump station facilities, where RVers may empty their sewage holding tanks.

They are maintained and funded by Caltrans. Some are closed due to maintenance issues, its always best to have a alternate rest stop just in case. Click the rest area links below.
