About Outdoor Recreation
The Outdoor Recreation program is dedicated to providing exciting activities that take full advantage of the local terrain and weather conditions. Throughout the year, we offer river rafting, sailing, scuba, hiking, biking and horseback riding trips. These activities are an excellent way to explore and appreciate the beautiful central coast of California.

Besides offering trips, outdoor recreational can also help you plan your own by providing various equipment for rental use. We offer a full range of recreational equipment, lawn & garden supplies and even power equipment. So, stop by the outdoor recreation office and let us help you get in touch with the outdoors.

Equipment Rental
Are you in need of the right equipment when planning a camping trip, a large scale cookout, or other recreational activity? Or maybe you need some lawn and garden help? Then stop by Equipment Checkout to pick up the items you need. Outdoor Rec carries supplies for camping, boating, surfing, outdoor sports and much more. We have it all, from mountain bikes to BBQ grills, wetsuits to lawnmowers, even campers!

Most items can be checked out for a day, a weekend, or an entire week. For a complete listing of the latest rental equipment and prices stop by outdoor rec or download the latest rental price guide.

It is an exciting outing and you get the chance of lifetime to be able to help the captain sail the boat.
