The Great Outdoors

Niantic is situated in a particularly beautiful part of Connecticut, with a fantastic blend of forest lands and scenic views alongside the Long Island Sound. Almost directly next to your RV park, there is a fantastic state park ranking among the most popular state parks in the Nutmeg State. At Rocky Neck State Park, picnic areas and gorgeous trails weave through the wetlands and coastal ecosystems, with tons of local wildlife flourishing in their natural habitats. There are rocky and sandy beaches on the shore, where you can swim, suntan, or fish, among other activities.Beckett Hill State Park Reserve is a much different type of park, located inland rather than on the shore. There is hardly any development or amenities found within the park, as it is left mostly natural for the sake of the wildlife that calls it home. Guests are free to roam around the park and take in the views at this serene spot.Selden Neck State Park is over on the banks of the Connecticut River, although it is technically an island due to a small creek that wraps around its eastern side. There is a network of nature trails on the small island, as well as a campground and a vantage point nearly 200 feet tall, with stunning views of the river. A fascinating archaeological site rounds out an already brilliant experience, with artifacts dating back over 1,000 years on this mysterious island.Gillette Castle State Park is another popular park in the state. The park is named for its most obvious landmark, Gillette Castle, home to famed stage actor William Gillette for decades before it was sold to the state. Now the park brings in a third of a million people each year to see its beautiful castle ruins, marvelous views, a visitor center, and museum. Hiking trails and picnic areas are also sporadically placed throughout this small park by the Connecticut River.

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.
