Renegades On The River Campground

Fronting the St. Johns River, the Renegades on the River campground offers family and pet-friendly motorhome camping if you’re looking for full hookup sites with 50/30 amp service. There’s beautiful tropical landscaping and also some mature trees to provide shade and privacy between RV campers and cabin renters, but you can opt for sites under the beautiful Florida sun. There are several pull-through sites for bigger rigs, and a few double-wide and deep back-in sites for those towing their watercraft. (The boat slips are right on the river.) Restrooms, bathhouses, and a laundry area are available too at this Crescent City campground.Golf cart and boat rentals are on offer; if you need fishing supplies, the bait store may have what you need. There’s also an on-site shop for snacks and refreshments. Relax at the clubhouse after a dip in the pool, or at the restaurant if you’ve worked up an appetite. Find amusement indoors at the recreation room (card games, billiards), or join one of the many nightly activities like trivia games, karaoke, and "ladies and gents nights." Crescent City bills itself as the bass capital of the world so a fishing trip should at least be on your list.

The Great Outdoors

Perhaps there’s nothing more convincing than proximity to some of Florida’s legendary wild spaces if you need one good reason to book an RV in Putnam County. With more than 600 square miles of woodlands and wetlands, and an equal number of lakes, springs, rivers, and other waterways to explore, the Ocala National Forest is just an hour's drive away when you rent a camper near Renegades on the River.Sixty-six miles of the Florida Scenic Trail twists its way through one of the world's largest pinewoods forests while 22 miles of off-road single-track loop take intrepid bikers farther into the deep woods and rolling hills. The seven-mile Juniper Springs offers a meandering and shady canoe trail while the Alexander Springs is best for scuba diving. And if you want to cover more ground without breaking much sweat, take your campervan rental with you and keep an eye out for the many springs glittering along the Black Bear Scenic Byway, including the byway's namesake.Crescent City campers are only 90 minutes’ drive from one of the longest stretches of public beaches on Florida's east coast, the Canaveral National Seashore. Here sea turtles, West Indian manatees, and American bald eagles seek refuge in the undeveloped shores and pristine woodlands and wetlands. Mosquito Lagoon offers some of the best shallow-water fishing in the area. For lovers of history, the wonderfully preserved Eldora State House offers a window into what Florida was like in the 19th century. To catch a live rocket launch from the nearby Kennedy Space Center, you may need to book a campground on the Space Coast early.In the "Land of the Trembling Earth" across the Georgia state line, a 400,000-acre primeval and watery Eden awaits at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Here layers of peat became the foundation of (moving) islands where grasses, shrubs, and trees grow, providing the ideal habitat for an incredible diversity of plants and animal life, including more than 200 species of birds. Come here if you're in search for a wilderness paddling trip, wildlife viewing (sparrows, woodpeckers, and tortoises, including alligators everywhere), and incredible photo opportunities.

Exploring the Area

Crescent City is a tiny town tucked in between two lakes in a rural part of Florida where life mostly revolves around bass fishing. Catfish is also abundant, so you might want to consider RV camping at Renegades on the River when the Annual Catfish Festival swims into town. Crescent Lake is the playground of motorboaters and sailors while Lake Stella is for birders who’d love the chance to spy on the elusive limpkin and the not-so-elusive sandhill cranes and wood ducks. Bald eagles may also be spotted overhead as there’s a rookery nearby.Still, it’s nice to set foot on dry land and join a walking tour of the more than 200 buildings that make up the Crescent City downtown historic district. Some of the more notable and oldest landmarks are of Queen Anne, Italianate and Vernacular styles built in late 19th century. All that walking probably gets you hungry, which you can satisfy with seafood, American diner fare, and fast food available in town. Mexican and Italian staples can also be found if you're patient enough. If you need to refuel your rental RV and restock on provisions, there are a few gas stations and several grocery and convenience stores in the area.Crescent Lake is linked to the St. John’s River so shrimp here is plentiful from August through November. But you’d have to camp in an RV near Crescent City in early May if you want to witness the Mug Race, a 38.5-mile river race for sailboats setting off from Palatka all the way to Jacksonville.Camping in Crescent City takes you on a water world adventure more than anything, but you’re never far from other top attractions in the Sunshine State like Daytona Beach and Orlando, neither of which is more than two hours' drive away. So book an RV rental in Crescent City, Florida today and start ticking off equally exciting things on your bucket list.

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.
