The Great Outdoors

Camp in an RV near Orlando and make the short drive south to the Split Oak Forest, which encompasses nearly 2,000 acres along the southern shore of Lake Hart. It centers around a live oak tree that’s more than 200 years old and is split down the middle, with prairie and scrub preserve sprawling in the surrounds. This largely undeveloped reserve provides an important habitat for a healthy population of sandhill cranes and is traversed by a loop trail system that includes the 7.8-mile-long Perimeter Trail.In the northwest corner of the Split Oak Forest is the Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge, which functions as a wildlife rehabilitation center for injured or orphaned wildlife before being released back into the wild. It’s a great place to get up close to native Florida species, including raccoons, bobcats, and Sherman’s fox squirrel while learning about threats to their survival. Embark on the Wildlife Walk to learn about each of the refuge’s residents and their backstory, accompanied by one of the center’s informative keepers.Just a stone’s throw to the east is the Isle of Pine Preserve, which lies along the southern shore of Lake Mary Jane. Follow the Blue Trail (one of two separate trails in the preserve) that takes you through unique upland habitats that include pines, scrub forest, and cypress domes where gopher tortoises reside. See bald eagles circling overhead and ospreys soaring between the nearby lakes, then relax over lunch at one of the waterfront picnic areas.

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.
