The Great Outdoors

When you search for an RV in Inyo County, you’ll be smack in the center of the Mojave Desert. You’ll also be mere minutes from Death Valley National Park, the lowest and hottest place in the United States. Death Valley lies 282 feet below sea level, and temperatures regularly soar into the mid 100s. Though the intense temperatures may make it a little uncomfortable, if you’re willing to withstand the heat, Death Valley National Park is truly a stunning place with much to offer. Featuring everything from sand dunes to deep canyons and salt flats to desert peaks, Death Valley is a hiker’s paradise. Though there aren’t many designated trails, you don’t really need them. Just be mindful of the heat and be sure to bring enough water. If you choose to explore the park from the comfort of your air-conditioned vehicle, most of the park’s hot spots can be seen from the road.If you’re interested in a hike with more favorable temperatures, you might consider summiting Mount Whitney, the tallest peak in the contiguous United States. Rising 14,505 feet into the air, Mount Whitney is part of the Sierra Nevada mountain range and located within Sequoia National Park. To minimize the impact on the area, permits are required for those entering the Mount Whitney Zone. Climbing in the spring and early summer requires ice axes and crampons, but technical climbing equipment usually isn’t needed between mid-July to early October.If you prefer something a little closer to civilization, Bishop City Park in Bishop, California might be just the spot for you. It is located near downtown Main Street and covers 44 acres. Take an afternoon stroll along the walking trails or sit in the shade of many trees. Catch reprieve from the desert heat in the communal swimming pool or challenge your friends to a game of tennis. Toward the back of the park, you’ll find a medium-sized pond where you can marvel at the beautiful fish, birds, and ducks. The park also boasts two playgrounds, multiple soccer fields, an outdoor gym, a communal garden, a skate park, and an off-leash dog park. All this surrounded by stunning mountainous views, it’s no wonder Bishop City Park is a must-visit when you book an RV rental near Glacier View Campground.

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.
