The Great Outdoors

One of the best reasons to camp in an RV near Clearwater is its proximity to Lake Tarpon. A popular destination for watersports, Lake Tarpon is an angler's paradise, with largemouth bass being one of the most popular catches. Lake Tarpon covers over 2,500 acres of freshwater, so there's plenty of room for everyone to enjoy these serene waterways, and canoeing and kayaking is especially popular here. For a tranquil day in the Florida sunshine, bring along a picnic and enjoy swimming and sunbathing on one of the many lakeside beaches. There are lots of tropical parks to visit when you consider an RV rental near Clearwater/Lake Tarpon KOA, and one worth visiting is Wall Springs Park in Palm Harbor. This seaside park is comprised of over 210 acres of beaches and swamps and was once used as a natural spring and spa. Converted into a park, it's now full of boardwalk trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, and more. A 35-foot observation tower gives visitors a unique view across the Gulf of Mexico, and Wall Springs Park is also ideal for nature watchers, with raccoons, squirrels, reptiles, and more spotted around the Boggy Bayou.One of the most unique state parks located nearby is Honeymoon Island State Park. Just a 20-minute drive south when camping at Clearwater/Lake Tarpon KOA, this state park is located on a barrier island just off Dunedin and is full of pristine beaches, beautiful parks, and hiking trails. Fishing is popular with catches including sea trout, snook, and more. Pets are also welcome, and Honeymoon Island State Park even features a pet beach where you can walk your four-legged companion along the scenic gulf waters.

Exploring the City

Clearwater is a popular vacation destination for motorhome camping, and the city has many attractions worth visiting, including the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This aquarium is focused on preserving the local wildlife and features bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, otters, and more. Many of these animals are here temporarily, with the aim of rehabilitation to prepare them to be released back into the wild. The aquarium uniquely features personal webcams for certain animals, so visitors can get to know them better and gain some insight into their individual personalities.Alternatively, you might want to get outside and enjoy some more of the famous Florida sunshine, in which case you should plan a visit to the sprawling water park in Indian Rocks Beach. A perfect day trip destination for the whole family, this water park features a 42-foot twisting waterslide, a 600-foot lazy river, and an enormous sundeck to chill out with your favorite cocktail. The kids can try mining for treasure or spend some time on the mini-golf course, and the game room is a welcome respite when it's time to take a break from the heat. If you get hungry after all the swimming, there are also on-site restaurants and bars for visitors to enjoy.Take to the sparkling seas with a cruise on the tropical-themed party boat that departs from Clearwater; it's a fun and unique attraction to try while RV camping at Clearwater/Lake Tarpon KOA. This triple-decker boat travels along the Clearwater coastline to give you a different view of the city, along with a buffet, drinks, and more. Daytime tours offer a historical exploration of the coastline, while evenings get rowdier and feature DJs and dancing.

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.
