Bella Vista is a small city nestled in the rolling Ozark hills on the northwestern Missouri-Arkansas border. Traditionally a summer resort destination, Bella Vista eventually became a retirement community then gradually diversified as a recreational village that now houses transplants working at larger cities like Bentonville and Springdale to the south.
In keeping with its summer resort roots, Bella Vista maintains an abundance of scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities (especially golf) for outdoor adventurers of all kinds. Plan your own adventure today and search for an RV in Bella Vista to take you wherever you wish to go.
Bella Vista's forested and hilly terrain lends well to hiking and mountain biking. Hit "The Back 40" (miles) that winds through the east side of the city for some hiking and cycling fun. For more of the same on a much larger scale, follow I-49 south in your Bella Vista motorhome rental and stop at Kessler Mountain or Devil's Den State Park. Here you can explore hiking and mountain biking trails, and see stands of old-growth forest and rock outcroppings at Kessler, or unique rock formations and caverns at Devil's Den.
Once back on the highway, enjoy a scenic drive on the Boston Mountains Scenic Loop that goes all the way down to Alma. Keep to I-49 for views of the countryside, or switch to US Highway 71 if you wish to see the road rise and dip, twist and turn through the Boston Mountains. This is also a suitable route to take if you plan to pull off the road and do a bit of hiking in the Ozarks.
When you rent an RV, you'll eventually stumble into the Ozark National Forest 70 miles south of Bella Vista. At 1.2 million acres, Ozark National Forest presents endless outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, swimming, hunting, fishing, boating, and ATV riding. And if you want to see what it's like inside a living cave, plan a stop at Blanchard Springs Caverns where you'll come face to face with stalagmites, stalactites, and flowstones that are still changing. Crawl through and slide down in undeveloped sections of the cave, or walk comfortably on paved trails with handrails. There’s a campground here for your Bella Vista travel trailer rental so you can soak up the experience and not rush your visit.
Find a full-service RV campground five miles south of the city center. Full hookups (including wireless internet) are on offer as well as restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, and a dump station. If you don't mind crossing the state line 15 miles to the north, you'll be rewarded with a lush campground for your travel trailer rental near Bella Vista with plenty of water-based adventures nearby. Staying within state boundaries would require you looking south within 20-25 miles.
Alternatively, stay in state or national parks to truly get back to nature. Find a full hookup site with up to 50 amp service at the Devils Den State Park, or an RV camp site (no hookups) with restrooms, showers and sewage dump station at Blanchard Springs Recreation Area in the Ozark National Forest. Other alternatives are at Lake Wedington (no hookups but with flush toilets and dump station) and Long Pool Recreation Area (with electric and water hookups and dump station).
Bella Vista was originally planned as a community for an activity-based lifestyle, and today you'll find scores of recreational amenities that will keep you busy wherever you look. Golf courses, lakes for boating and fishing, nature and multi-use trails, and hiking and mountain bike trails abound. As well as The Back 40, Bella Vista also offers local and visiting hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers a year-round playground at Blowing Springs Park. There’s a campground close by for your Bella Vista rental RV so you’re well-placed to explore this moderately graded loop that will take you through springs, caves, a waterfall, and to an overlook.
Visit the Bella Vista Historical Museum to learn about the Native American history of the area and how the community started as a summer resort. Step inside the Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel for a serene place to admire nature from inside the Gothic-inspired building. And don't forget to sample local produce and locally brewed beer. The dining scene here appeals to a wide variety of tastes whether you're partial to food truck fare, regional favorites or country club type cuisine.
Look beyond the borders and more adventure beckons. Follow I-49 to the north and you’ll run into Kansas City, MO or look northeast and follow I-44 to St. Louis, MO. It’s going to be a long drive, either way, so find the best RV rental in Bella Vista, AR for a road trip you won’t soon forget.
