The Great Outdoors

Motorhome camping at the Travelers Campground will make it easy for you to engage in a wide range of outdoor activities. San Felasco Hammock State Park and the Mill Creek Preserve West are both found near Alachua. These locales offer trails for hiking and biking. They wind through the local woods and along nearby waterways. The trails in these areas are mostly shaded, so they offer a respite from the frequently hot, Florida sun. These are also great places for viewing local wildlife.Bats are popular in this part of the state, and the University of Florida maintains a Bat House near Gainesville. Bats are known as some of the largest structures of this type in the world. If you are in the area near sunset, you can see as many as 500,000 of the flying mammals emerge for their nocturnal feeding routine. The Lubee Bat Conservancy is also in town. Guided tours are available on the site that offers educational information on the species that are housed here. You may even be able to make food for and actually feed some of the animals.Should you be interested in space, check out the Solar Walk in this town, as well. Pillars on the sidewalk outline the position of the various bodies in our solar system and their relative distance from each other. You will also find the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium nearby. This locale offers shows that highlight details of the night sky. They focus on different themes, and some are even set to music, such as Pink Floyd.

It describes the building of this large construction project. The Matheson History Museum is in a historic home from the 1930s and highlights the history of the local county. The home is open for tours, as well.There are also historic sites available to visit in Gainesville. Check out the Historic Haile Homestead, which was a former cotton plantation from the 1850s. The home is open for touring, with one unique aspect of it being the "talking walls" where family members and friends actually wrote messages and signed the walls of the home. You can also visit the Living History Farm at Morningside Nature Center. It highlights what life would have been like in the area when it was first settled. At certain times of the year, artisan demonstrations can be viewed.When you've been looking for a great place for a vacation, where there are many fun things to do, consider a campsite at Traveler's Campground.

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.
