Discover Ashley

Ashley, IL, is a small community in southern Illinois. The closest major city is St. Louis, Missouri, at an hour’s drive to the west. Settlers from the east first began arriving in Ashley in 1825, but the town would not become official until 1854 when the very first businesses started to open up. Small stores, saloons, and other family-owned businesses began to spring up in what became a prosperous little area.

Ashley is country town with only a few main roads. It is located several miles south of Interstate 64 which connects with the town of Mount Vernon. Despite it not being the most lively or entertaining town, there are loads of quaint towns, vibrant city centers, and fabulous parks within driving distance. When you search for an RV in Ashley, Illinois there are great times ahead.

Experience the Sites and Scenery

City Park is Ashley’s main park, and has a nice playground and ample space to move around and play in the green, grassy meadows beside it. There are not many parks or forests in the immediate vicinity, but driving farther out in your Ashley camper rental is a fine way to see some beautiful nature. Washington County State Conservation Area is a 900-acre refuge centered around Washington County Lake. There are a few docks and swimming areas in the lake to cool off when the weather is hot.

Pyramid State Recreation Area to the south is another place worth visiting when you rent an RV in Ashley. The recreation area has lots of little creeks and waterways that are home to migratory birds and other wildlife. Rend Lake State Waterfowl Management Area sits on the shores of Rend Lake as does Rend Lake State Wildlife Refuge. These conservation lands are also great places to bird watch and enjoy the scenery.

North Marcum Recreation Area, Marcum Branch North Public Use Area, and Spillway Public Use Area are all centered around Rend Lake and operated for recreational use, but none can compare to Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park. This amazing park is known for its hunting, fishing, and spectacular lakeside campgrounds.

Shawnee National Forest is a well-known camping destination so why not head there with your Ashley RV rental. This sprawling forest has seven wilderness areas with natural rock formations and waterfalls galore. The “Little Grand Canyon” is located in Shawnee National Forest, full of breathtaking views overlooking the valley. Hoosier National Forest over in Indiana is another great place to check out if you don’t mind heading to another Midwest state. This 2,000-acre refuge has evidence of native settlements dating back 12,000 years.

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is a UNESCO biosphere reserve between the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers, where millions of visitors flock each year to enjoy the outdoors paradise in the summertime. Just about every recreational activity imaginable is on the table at this gem of a park.

City Attractions

There aren’t many attractions to check out when you book an RV rental in Ashley, but Mount Vernon is only 15 miles away, and there is much more going on there. The Cedarhurst Center for the Arts is a lovely community center hosting arts events, art galleries, classes, sculptures, and other art-centric delights. Jefferson County Historical Village is a great place to take the family and see a replica settlement depicting how pioneers lived hundreds of years ago. The Hall of Honor & Military Museum pays homage to those that gave their lives in defense of the United States. Tours and objects on display paint a picture of the main foreign battles and wars in the nation’s history.

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.

RV rental vs buying?
