The Great Outdoors

Even though you have all the nature you could ask for just outside your rental motorhome at Blackwater River Campground, it’d be a shame not to experience some of the other fantastic things you can do and see in the area. Such as Florida Caverns State Park, which is exactly what it sounds like: a set of caves. This is one of few air-filled caves that offer tours to the public, and anyone would be amazed by the magnificent stalagmites and stalactites rising up and dropping down from the ceiling. You’ll wonder if you’re still on the same planet, or if this really is the creation of alien beings.Next up of the great recreation areas is Navarre Beach Marine Park - and what a park. Beaches everywhere you look, with the blue waves of the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound constantly begging for your attention. It truly is a magical place, and what makes it even more special are the establishments you can visit: Navarre Beach Marine Science Station, the Sea Turtle Conservation Center, and the scenic fishing pier. Here you can learn all you never thought you wanted to know about the ocean and the creatures living in it. Oh, and there’s scuba diving. What a place!There’s a lot to see on dry land too, and what better way to do it than from the back of a horse. With lots of places to choose from, camping in Holt allows you to go on a wonderful little adventure whatever your skill level is and other than riding down beautiful trails, you’ll also get to know your horse. The establishments are usually rather flexible with the booking times, but if you want to go on a specific day, you might want to call ahead.

Exploring the Area

Crestview is a great place to start if you rent an RV in Okaloosa County, and has a whole lot of history and culture. You can start at the Carver-Hill Museum, a beautiful building telling the story of the school with the same name that was founded during the segregation times so that African-American children could get a good education. Also in Crestview, you’ll get to spend some time at the local amusement center, where the whole family can enjoy virtual reality games, tasty food, and mechanical bulls.Steer your motorhome rental toward Pensacola if you’re in the mood for even more fun and entertainment; who isn’t. There are beaches, of course, and many fun events and activities, including museums, fun parks, and an abundance of history. Watch the Blue Angels conquer the sky, hike the birding trail, or go on a dolphin tour, or have a look at one of the archaeological sites. It’s the perfect city for a family vacation, and the whole area is just waiting for you when you rent a camper near Blackwater River Campground.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
