AutoCamp Russian River FAQs

We get a lot of questions about AutoCamp Russian River. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about the property.

Are pets allowed on the property?

Of course! This dog-friendly property welcomes four-legged friends. After all, they’re part of the family! There is, however, some limitations and additional fees associated with bringing your pups.

The only downside is that Johnson’s Beach is not dog-friendly (service dogs being the exception).

Does the property have any special packages or discounts?

Yes! Autocamp Russian River often has seasonal deals and special packages that are great for couples or families looking to save money on their stay. Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive wine-tasting package or something else, they always offer something new.

Can I bring my own RV?

Unfortunately, you cannot. They do not allow pitched tents or RVs on their property.

Remember, they provide a full-service camping experience, not necessarily a campground.

Is AutoCamp Russian River a good place for kids?

Yes, this is a great place for kids and adults alike. When we stayed there in the summer there were plenty of kids running around and having a good time.

Does the property have any additional activities or amenities?

There’s more to this place than just great service and free wifi. Along with the fantastic campsites and amenities Autocamp Russian River offers, they also have plenty of other activities to keep the whole family entertained.

There are yoga classes, bike rentals, cornhole games and more! So be sure to ask the front desk about what’s available during your stay.

How far is Johnson’s Beach?

Johnson’s Beach is a quick two minute drive from the Autocamp Russian River property. You can also take a bike or a short walk to the beach. It’s very convenient!

What is the policy on fire pits?

While you can use the fire pit at your site, you’re limited to charcoal and pressed logs.

Think about it, the property is on a site surrounded by dense trees, and California is no stranger to wildfires. So this is a neighborhood policy and not one necessarily by AutoCamp.

Is there a minimum stay policy?

Most of the time, yes. On the weekends, there is a minimum of two nights, and on some holidays, you may need to stay 3 or more nights. Be sure to check in advance if you need to book an extended stay.

Usually, during the week or when they have room availability, AutoCamp Russian River will relax the policy and allow a single-night stay.

What is the cancellation policy?

Autocamp Russian River has one of the stricter policies we’ve seen, so be sure to read the fine print on your reservation.

You can change your reservation up to 14 days before your scheduled arrival, but cancellations will result in 100% of the room charges.

What else would you expect from a location that has such high demand?

What are their check-in and check-out times?

The standard check-in time at AutoCamp Russian River is 4 PM, while the check-out time is 11 AM. These are relatively normal times for most hotels and accommodations, so it should be easy to plan your arrival and departure times.

Keep in mind that your door lock access is automatically enabled and disabled at those times.

Of course, if you need to check in early, just give them a call ahead of time, and their super-friendly staff will try their best to accommodate you. There are no guarantees, however.

Does AutoCamp have other locations in addition to this property?

They sure do! All of the AutoCamp locations have a similar look and feel and provide a luxurious glamping experience.

Featuring modern amenities, premium furnishings, and chic decor, you can find AutoCamp locations in Asheville, Cape Code, Catskills, Hill Country, Joshua Tree, Sequoia, Yosemite, and Zion.
