The Great Outdoors

It would be a shame to rent an RV near Oscar Scherer Campground and not make the most of the state park that shares its name. Being surrounded by urban sprawl, this park truly is an oasis and escape into nature for a little while. There are both hiking and kayak trails, and you can go birding (this is the habitat of the scrub-jay) in addition to geocaching and primitive camping. You can also go fishing and swimming, and even rollerblading if that’s your cup of tea.Also close to your Osprey motorhome rental but a lot larger is Myakka River State Park. One of the oldest and largest ones in the state, this state park offers you almost the same views as the ones that mesmerized Native Americans and Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago, and you can hear both limpkins and osprey in the air. Go hiking, mountain biking, or paddling before it’s time for a boat tour on Upper Myakka Lake. Don’t forget your camera, because there’s wildlife around.There are also many smaller parks where you can get a taste of the astounding Florida nature, such as Potter Park, Legacy Trail, and Culverhouse Nature Park. Do some hiking, have a picnic, or play some games, or you could always visit the beach - or parks by the shore, like South Lido County Park, Nora Patterson Bay Island Park, or Blackburn Point Park. Who says you have to leave the city to feel like the noises and pace are far, far away?

Exploring the Area

Leave your RV rental at Oscar Scherer Campground, and head to the shore, where you can watch the various boats calmly bob up and down on the velvety yet sparkling water, or just admire all the architecture and flowers - and look at the stunning views of the ocean, of course. Eat some of the freshest seafood you’ve ever had, and don’t forget to give Historic Spanish Point some of your time. Here, you can get to know more about the history of the area, as well as why it’s like it is today.Where there’s a beach, there are water activities. At least if the beaches in question are as lovely as the ones around Osprey. You can go sailing on the colorful water, or do some snorkeling beneath its surface before the surfing and jet-skiing start. There are also tours to be taken, like the one that takes you to see dolphins living in the wild. If you’re lucky, they might want to come and play. After all the swimming and sun-bathing, walk around the shops and find the perfect gifts to bring back home. Don’t forget to buy something for yourself.How about it, RV camping in a stunning state park, spending whole days at the beach, experiencing Florida’s nature, and learning about the area, and then watching an absolutely gorgeous sunset at North Jetty, does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Well then: go search for an Osprey RV rental right now.

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.
