Danville is an eastern Illinois town located mere minutes from the Indiana state border. In Danville, you’ll encounter world-class museums and unique shops and boutiques. There are also 39 murals painted on the walls of brick buildings throughout the town. These murals depict tales of heroes and history, telling a story to both locals and visitors. If you’re looking for a more outdoorsy experience, Danville also delivers. The city and surrounding county have more than 15,000 acres of parks and wildlife areas. And although the city is remarkable in its own right, it sits near major interstates and highways should you want to travel to other hotspots within Illinois. Danville is located less than two hours' drive from Springfield, the state’s capital, and less than three hours' drive from Chicago. It’s also a short drive from the Illinois-Indiana state line, so if you’re looking to rent an RV in a place that will allow you to easily explore the surrounding areas, look no further than Danville.

The Great Outdoors

Kennekuk Cove County Park is a large 3,000-acre park bordered by the Middle Fork State Wildlife Area and the Middle Fork National Scenic River. Within the park, you’ll find Lake Mingo, a 170-acre lake for boating and fishing. There’s also a visitor’s center with a natural history museum, a Native American display, and a 1,000-gallon aquarium. Heavily wooded by oak and hickory trees with tall grass prairie areas, you’re bound to see tons of wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled.

Kickapoo State Recreation Area sits on 2,842 acres in nearby Oakwood. Providing an outdoor playground for every member of the family, there are a total of 221 acres of water for boaters, anglers, and canoeists. Photographers and wildlife viewers will find many opportunities amid the lushly forested uplands and bottomlands located along the Vermilion River’s Middle Fork. Hikers can stretch their legs on approximately eight miles of trails, while mountain bikers can test their skill on 12 miles of some of Illinois’s best single-track mountain biking trails. You can also scuba dive, picnic, and hunt. And if you want to stay longer than a day, there are two modern campgrounds with partial hookups, a dump station, and shower buildings, so bring your travel trailer rental from Danville and stay a while.

Middle Fork State Fish and Wildlife Area covers 2,700 acres and consists of forest, cropland, and grass and provides the ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife. As such, this place is a favorite among wildlife viewers, bird watchers, and photographers, but even if those aren’t your cup of tea, you’re bound to enjoy spending time here when you book an RV in Vermilion County. Cast your line into the Middle Fork River and see what you reel in, take to over 35 miles of hiking and equestrian trails, hit the water on your canoe, practice your aim at the archery trail and trap range, or enjoy a picnic in the day-use area.

RV Parks

Seeking a place to park your RV rental in Danville? Though there aren’t very many campgrounds in the city (apart from the ones at the state recreation areas), there are several in the surrounding areas which can accommodate you during your trip. One place you can consider is D&W Lake Camping and RV Park in Champaign. Here, you’ll find swimming pools, tennis courts, and walking paths. Traveling with little ones? There’s a playground. You can also enjoy boat rentals, fishing, Wi-Fi, pull-through sites, full hookups, a laundromat, an on-site lake, and more.

Exploring Danville

You tend to have a more pleasant and thorough experience when you familiarize yourself with a place before you start exploring. Make the most of your time when you rent an RV in Danville and swing by the Vermilion County Museum first. The museum is located in a historic house which was built in 1855 for William Fithian, a politician who served in the Illinois House of Representatives and Senate. Inside, you’ll find several exhibits dedicated to preserving and promoting the area’s past.

Another museum of interest when you book a camper rental in Danville is Vermilion County War Museum. In Danville’s original public library building, which was constructed in 1903, here you’ll find memorabilia and artifacts dating all the way back to the Revolutionary War. Dedicated to education, awareness, service, and honor, this is a great place for veterans, active military members, and civilians.

Sit and sip a while at the vineyard in Fairmont. Here you can enjoy fine wine in a laid-back atmosphere. Wine is crafted from grapes grown on-site as well as from other growers. Wine tastings are offered daily, and you can purchase wine by the glass or bottle. Sit inside the tasting room or relax outdoors by the pond while nibbling on local cheeses and snacks.
