Nestled in the valley of the Chattahoochee River, Columbus, Georgia, is that rare city with a rich history, and a vibrancy and hipness all its own. Just 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, Columbus is home to many museums and tourist attractions. Where rolling hills and beautiful plainlands meet, Columbus has something for everyone, from fine dining and coffee shops to the longest urban whitewater rafting course in the world. Enjoy the almost 50 parks and recreation centers, the historic district, and fitness trails. The more you learn about this city, the more you’ll want to book an RV in Columbus, Georgia.

Sites and Scenery

Although a modern city, Columbus offers great hiking and outdoor recreation opportunities, right in the city limits. The Chattahoochee RiverWalk is a 15-mile long walking and bicycling trail that connects Downtown Columbus to the South Columbus district, and to the northern border of Fort Benning. The Columbus Fall Line Trace is 11 miles of fitness trail fun that starts in Uptown and leads to the northeastern part of town. Black Heritage Trail, a National Recreation Trail, features historic and cultural insights, and doubles as a walking trail.

One of the most unique and exciting outdoor activities available in the city is the world’s largest urban whitewater rafting course. The Chattahoochee River Whitewater Park opened in 2012, with restored natural water flow conditions. This 2.5-mile course is ideal for kayaks or canoes, and is considered one of the best whitewater courses in the world. Attached to the course is the Blue Heron Adventure zip-line, connecting you from the Georgia side of the Chattahoochee River to the Alabama side, and back.

Drive just an hour west with the Columbus rental RV to find yourself in the gorgeous Tuskegee National Forest in Alabama. This 10,000-acre gem features rich forest land for hiking, fishing, camping and biking. There are also great trails for horseback rides, and a shooting range for even more fun. A favorite trail here is the Bartram National Recreation Trail, the first in Alabama. This 8.5-mile path takes you through different types of forest habitat, and hikers can see a vast variety of wildflowers and trees, including flowering varieties like dogwood and magnolia.

Camping is available, as in most national forests, with primitive campgrounds available, some including with hookups and water for your Columbus, GA rental camper.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
