The Great Outdoors

Even though your Lincoln camper rental will be in the heart of some of the great plains of the Midwest, you’ll probably want to experience even more nature complete with loads of recreation opportunities. A great place that is also close to your campsite at Camp A While Campground is Kickapoo Creek County Park. If you’ve missed trees, you’ll be very pleased when arriving at this secluded wooded prairie with over ten miles of trails as well as picnic areas and pavilions you can reserve. See how many different plant species you can spot, and keep your eyes open for a glimpse of the wildlife.Have all the fields and trees made you long for some water? Then off you go to Clinton Lake State Recreation Area, which is exactly as much fun as it sounds. Spend some time on the beach playing in the sand or relaxing with a book, or hit the lake to do some fishing before it’s time for the water sports. Go swimming, water and jet skiing, and scuba diving, and if water just isn’t your element, try some archery up on dry land.If, on the other hand, it’s the serenity that only a deep, beautiful forest can provide, hop into your Lincoln RV rental and go to Sand Ridge State Forest. In this foresty island in the sea of central Illinois cornfields, you’ll find hickory woodlands and majestic pine trees that you can hike along, and this place is also fantastic in the winter.

Exploring the Area

You can’t rent a travel trailer near Camp A While Campground and not spend some time in beautiful Lincoln unless you want to miss a whole bunch of thrift stores and antique boutiques and loads of events ranging from attempting to set new world records to fairs and flea markets. Lincoln is also one of the first stops on the now legendary Route 66, with lots of landmarks made famous by the well-known road.History is everywhere you look - especially if you’re in the Lincoln Heritage Museum. Here you can learn about and appreciate the life and legacy of one of the most famous US presidents, Abraham Lincoln, who might actually be even more legendary than Route 66. Go on guided tours including immersive experiences, and before you know it, you won’t only learn from Lincoln - you’ll live like him, too. If you’re lucky, the museum might be putting on an event during your visit, such as a grand soirée, so you might want to pack your best outfit.After all this history and culture, you must be starving, but fret not: Lincoln is filled with grills, inns, and cafés as well as bars and family restaurants, so there’s no need to be hungry when RV camping in Lincoln - and that’s gonna be you, right?

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.
