Wilmington is one of the largest cities in the country’s second smallest state, Delaware. Located in the Delaware Valley, not far from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Camden, New Jersey, the city’s motto is in the Middle of It All. It’s also about halfway between Washington D.C. and New York City. Renting an RV in Wilmington is all about having access to everything you could want – amazing beaches, fascinating historical sites, and big city entertainment options.

Being such a densely populated region along the Eastern Seaboard, it’s fortunate that you’ll probably never need to take your Wilmington RV rental out of the park. The area has a highly developed public transportation system, and you should be able to ride a train or bus to just about anywhere that you’d want to go.

Getting Outside near Wilmington

Whether you’re a runner, picnicker, or just hoping to enjoy some fresh air, the place to go is the Wilmington Riverwalk. Running parallel to the Northeast Cape Fear River and being right in the middle of Wilmington, it’s the perfect getaway from city life. Delicious restaurants line nearby Water Street and there’s the historic Battleship North Carolina across the river if you’re up for exploration. The Bee Line Water Taxi can take you anywhere you want to go along the riverfront too.

If you love beautiful gardens you’ll need to check out the Mt. Cuba Center in nearby Hockessin. The carefully manicured grounds are populated with native plant species and peaceful sitting areas for you to relax and contemplate life’s deep questions. It’s a great place to visit once you’ve found the best RV rental in Wilmington.

Of course, no trip to Delaware would be complete without a trip to the beach. To find the best sand you’ll need to the travel to the southern end of the state; fortunately, it doesn’t take too long to get from one end to the other in a luxury RV rental in Wilmington. Rehoboth Beach is one of the most popular sites, with free concerts during the summer months and plenty of food vendors to keep you full and happy. Cape Henlopen State Park is also adjacent to the beach and features some impressive sand dunes along with an observation tower for viewing the stunning shoreline.

RV Parks near Wilmington

Thirty minutes to the east of Wilmington, Four Seasons Family Campground is one of the closest dedicated parks. They’ve got full hookups, laundry facilities, a dump station, and tons of activities during the summer where you can meet fellow travelers.

Woodlands Camping Resort in Elkton, Maryland is another option for camping with your Wilmington travel trailer rental or RV and is also thirty minutes away. They’ve got full hookups along with a swimming pool, fishing pond and basketball courts. Their location on the edge of Elk Neck State Forest and the shore of the Elk River makes this an ideal park for outdoor enthusiasts.

There are also two KOA parks, Philadelphia South/Clarksboro and Philadelphia/West Chester, both about twenty-five minutes north of the city. As with most KOAs, they have excellent amenities and are especially great if you’re bringing the whole family along on your RV rental vacation.

There’s a Walmart in the middle of the city, just off Highway 141, near the Prices Corner Shopping Center. Camping overnight may be permitted if you ask the manager, but it’s never going to be the nest place to stay, so it’s best to just pick up any last minute supplies there before heading to a dedicated campground.

Exploring the City of Wilmington

As one of Delaware’s bigger cities, there’s plenty to do in Wilmington. For a dose of culture, head to the Delaware Art Museum; they’ve got an impressive collection from both local and nationally renowned artists dating back to the 1840s. The Delaware History Museum is another enjoyable stop to take with your motorhome rental in Wilmington. Set in an old Woolworth’s Store and having been recently renovated, the museum takes you back through time to tell the story of one of America’s most overlooked states.

If you’re bringing the little ones along, they might enjoy the Delaware Children’s Museum. Their interactive exhibits are an immersive learning experience for young minds. They’ll also love the Wilmington and Western Railroad scenic train ride, which is relatively short and inexpensive, while still offering all the thrill of riding the rails.

Baseball fans will surely want to snag tickets to a Wilmington Blue Rocks game at Frawley Stadium. Tickets are cheap compared to MLB games, and are always loads of fun to watch. If the cinema is more your style, Wilmington has two to choose from. The Delaware Theater Company and the Grand Opera House also have live theater, with the latter taking place inside a beautiful and historic venue.
