Incorporated and officially declared a town on January 1, 1874, Orangeville originated as early as 1820, when two men purchased plots of land where the town now stands. As more people arrived, the community continued to grow and in 1863 was unofficially named after Orange Lawrence, a Connecticut businessman, in 1863. Its public library, which still stands today at the corner of Mill Street and Broadway, was built in 1908, due in part to financial assistance from famed philanthropist and businessman Andrew Carnegie.
Orangeville is the administrative and commercial hub of Dufferin County, as well as its county seat. Search for an RV in Orangeville ahead of time and your RV rental vacation can begin the second your feet hit the ground. Other nearby cities worth investigating are Barrie, Toronto, Guelph, Hamilton and Peterborough. From Orangeville, you are also a short drive from the U.S. cities of Detroit and Buffalo.
Orangeville is a relatively quiet town. In recent years, a number of old trees scattered around town died; local artists carved these trees into sculptures, such as the Statue of Santa Claus in Kay Cee Gardens, in order to preserve the memory of the trees and illustrate the town's identity. Don't forget to get some pictures of these using your Orangeville RV rental as a backdrop; you're not likely to find art like this anywhere else.
Water enthusiasts will be happy to note that Orangeville is within striking distance of three of the Great Lakes: Lake Huron, Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. There are numerous fishing charters to choose from or you can take a relaxing cruise and enjoy the sites. Ontario has some of the most beautiful countryside in the world but there is no comparison to observing it from the water.
The Great Lakes are also an epic location for solo sports. Visitors can rent canoes, kayaks, dragon boats and paddle boards, then head out onto the water on their own. Head north of Orangeville to Collingwood, then west to enjoy a scenic drive along Highway 26, parts of which run right next to the lakeshore. Along this path, you will find several areas perfectly fitted for hiking, such as Craigleith Provincial Park. This park hosts hiking and biking trails, and is a good spot for launching canoes and kayaks. Its shale shoreline has fractured pieces of shale, some of which may contain fossils as much as 450 million years old. Farther north you will find additional parks and conservation areas worth checking out with the Orangeville rental motorhome.
Ontario is golf heaven and Orangeville has its fair share of courses. Of the nineteen or so nearby courses, five are public courses. Park your Orangeville motorhome rental nearby and take in views of the courses while enjoying your home cooked lunch.

A few of these are Toronto North / Cookstown KOA Holiday, Blue Sky RV Resort, Barrie KOA Holiday and Gulliver's Lake RV Resort & Campground.
