In the last great frontier of America, in vast expanses of Alaska, you can rent an RV near Homer/Baycrest KOA to experience the action-packed area. This peaceful retreat is found outside of Homer, one of the state’s most beloved villages, and a major summer destination where travelers can experience the essence of Alaska. With sweeping views of the Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay, it is no wonder so many people choose to stay at this incredible campground when renting an RV in the area.Just a few hours' drive south of Anchorage, the state’s largest city, Homer/Baycrest KOA is a desirable place to serve as a home base, sitting comfortably on Sterling Highway, the area’s main road. Only a few miles separate this cozy RV park from Homer, and anything that you can’t find on-site at the campground’s store can be found in town. Choose from a handful of camping spots in this small, intimate camping area with private, spacious campsites.

The Great Outdoors

Alaska is the largest state in the United States, as well as the wildest. Large swaths of open land, glorious seashores, stunning islands, and towering snow-capped mountains are all hallmarks of this amazing region, and you can discover some of its most beautiful parts when you rent an RV near Homer/Baycrest KOA. Right around the bay from Homer, you can bring your RV rental to Kachemak Bay State Park, a sublime collection of land by the water, owned and maintained by the state of Alaska. Alaska’s first state park has over 400,000 acres, making it larger than some of the country’s national parks. The park can be difficult to navigate through as it has no roads to speak of. What it does have, however, are some incredible species of wildlife in a biodiverse area, from black bears and eagles to sea lions and killer whales. Captain Cook State Recreation Area is much smaller but made for camping and recreation rather than just wildlife preservation. The area is fantastic for fishing, ice fishing, hiking, and camping on the small campground by the water’s edge.Chugach State Park is another gigantic mass of land, found to the north of the peninsula that Homer/Baycrest KOA inhabits. Half a million acres comprise this epic, sub-arctic wonderland, with large glaciers and lofty peaks like the 8,000-foot-tall Bashful Peak. A variety of activities can be enjoyed at this lush state park, like fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATVing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and more. Camping along the Eagle River is also an option if you want to stay for a night with your campervan rental.Kenai Fjords National Park is perhaps the most impressive park in all of southern Alaska, and it's a short distance away when you rent a camper near Homer/Baycrest KOA. The park is renowned for its large, glacial lakes, and an ice field which is larger than any other in the entire country. Most visitors to the park arrive by cruise ship, but you can visit and stay at the park with your Homer camper rental if you feel like adding a dose of adventure to your visit.

City Sightseeing

Homer isn't a large city, but it is a lovely place to visit, known for its character, culture, and charm. This peaceful village by the sea has plenty of dining establishments, breweries, shops, and other interesting sightseeing opportunities despite its small size. You can sample rich mead made in Homer, sip locally made beers, shop for art and souvenirs at one of many galleries, or pick up food for dinner at the farmer’s markets held in the heart of town. The Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor’s Center is a wonderful place to get a feel for where you’ll be vacationing, with large quantities of information about the local way of life, tourist attractions, and everything else you could possibly want.The Pratt Museum is a unique institution in Homer, with an eclectic collection of specimens, artwork, and antiques to paint a picture of what Homer truly is. You can see locally made Native American artwork, learn about the pioneers who made Alaska their home, and aquatic animals in the museum’s aquarium.The Kilcher Homestead Living History Museum is exactly what it sounds like. This old wooden cabin has lots of historical value, although it is still a home that is lived in by the family. The Seafarer’s Memorial pays homage to those lost at sea, an all too common happening in the treacherous waters of the north.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
