Discover Tuscaloosa, AL

Named after a chieftain of the Muskogean-speaking tribes of central Alabama, Tuscaloosa is a city less than an hour's drive from Birmingham on Interstate 20. For two decades, this incredible place served as the capital for all of Alabama, a reminder of its importance and excellence in the annals of Alabama history.

Tuscaloosa is mostly known for being the home of the University of Alabama, a storied institution whose sports programs are a major source of pride for both the city and the state of Alabama. Due to its massive university and student population, Tuscaloosa is a very progressive, arts and culture-minded city in the heart of Alabama.

When you book an RV in Tuscaloosa, you can enjoy college football at its finest, stroll down the streets looking for mouthwatering BBQ joints, hit up some of the finest museums and libraries available to the public, or take part in one of over a dozen city-wide celebrations that take place throughout the year. The German Weindorf Festival, the Sakura Festival, the Druid City Arts Festival, the Kentucky Festival of Arts, and the Moundville Native American Festival are some of the marvelous events that visitors to the lovely city can see when they rent an RV on their next vacation.

The Great Outdoors

Alabama is as outdoors-focused as you can be, with hundreds of state parks, public recreation areas, fishing spots, hunting areas, and hiking trails. No matter what time of year you visit, you can rent an RV and find somewhere scenic to relax and take part in a variety of recreation activities. Lake Lurleen State Park is very close to Tuscaloosa, named for Alabama’s first female governor, Lurleen Wallace. Lake Lurleen is at the center of most of the park’s activities, and a fantastic place to go swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and boating. The lake is encircled by a series of hiking and biking trails to ensure ease of access to the lake. Furthermore, there are nearly 100 campsites to choose from when you bring your Tuscaloosa camper rental for a short excursion.

South of Birmingham, Oak Mountain State Park is one of the largest state parks in the state. This large park was established back in 1927, and ever since, it has been one of the best places for city dwellers to get out and reconnect with nature. There are over 25 miles of hiking and biking trails found throughout the park, along with beaches, swimming areas, fishing centers, hunting areas, mountain biking trails, an 18-hole golf course, and lots of space to camp with your Tuscaloosa motorhome rental. You can even visit the interpretive center or the nature center at the park for some valuable knowledge about the local ecosystem.

There are a few stunning national forests in Alabama that you can see when you take a small road trip to other sections of the state. Bankhead National Forest to the north is a lovely wilderness area known as the “Land of a Thousand Waterfalls.” You can journey through the woods in search of cascading falls or hike through valleys and dense forest groves. There is ample space to hunt or fish, go horseback riding, or camp at Bankhead National Forest, and a large collection of archeological sites and old petroglyphs to see too. Tuskegee National Forest over on the other side of Montgomery and Talladega National Forest by Talladega are two of the other places to check out when you rent an RV and need some ideas. There is much to do at these incredible nature parks, and camping by the lake is a great perk of visiting.

RV Parks

RV parks aren’t as abundant as you might have hoped, but securing a space to stay in your Tuscaloosa camper rental is hardly a challenge. Candy Mountain RV Park is an option, with large open camping spaces and tons of riverfront where you can fish. Here you can splash around in the park's pool during the hot summertime.

Cherokee Campground is another place to consider, with laundry facilities, restrooms, hot showers, wireless internet, cable television, and a large fishing pond.

City Sightseeing

Tuscaloosa is an exciting college town with everything you could possibly hope for in a vacation destination. Enormous sporting events, concerts, art galleries, tasty Southern cooking, and more greet you when you arrive in Tuscaloosa. If you want to learn about some of the local history, the Alabama Museum of Natural History is a mesmerizing place full of old fossils, archaic skeletons, and ancient minerals from millions of years ago. You can take classes, participate in workshops and lectures, take guided tours, or simply stroll through the museum on your own to learn some natural history.

Paul W. Bryant Museum covers a different kind of history, namely the impressive life of Paul W. Bryant, a legendary football coach at the University of Alabama. The entire life of this sports icon is covered in this incredible building, from his birth to the several championships he helped deliver to the school. Memorabilia lines the walls, and there are videos telling the story of Paul Bryant too. Speaking of Alabama football, game days in the fall are some of the most exciting times to be in Alabama, the true epicenter of culture and celebration. The team is practically worshipped in Alabama, so heading to Bryant-Denny Stadium to catch a heated meeting with a rival is absolutely epic. There are over 100,000 seats in this gigantic stadium, making it one of the ten largest stadiums in the entire world.

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.
