The Great Outdoors

Book one of the RV rentals in Monroe County, jump in, and head for Yellowwood State Forest, a former logging site that has since been reforested and reclaimed. This multi-use area just minutes from Nashville, IN provides timber resources to local businesses through sustainable harvesting and offers outdoor recreation opportunities for the general public. Swimming is not allowed in any of the park's lakes, but you can fish on the lake from boats using only electric motors or rent a boat if you don't have one of your own. You can even pan for gold (a license is required) while you're here.Brown County State Park is 45 minutes' drive northeast of your campsite at Lake Monroe Village Campground. This semi-cultivated outdoor recreational area offers numerous activities and attractions to take in, such as a 90-foot fire tower that is open to the public, a water park and pool, and a nature center where you can view exhibits like the timber rattlesnake which is on the endangered species list. There are trails designated for hiking and mountain biking, and areas where you can camp overnight, allowing you to enjoy the sunset and sunrise. The landscape is diverse with narrow ridges, fog-shrouded ravines, and tree-lined roads that front an extensive and deep forest.Martin State Forest was originally abandoned farmland and clearcut forest that has been replanted and restored; today it is a lush ecosystem with several lakes where you can fish for bluegill, bass, and catfish, hike the numerous trails that range from easy to moderately difficult, or mountain bike on the designated trails (mountain bikes aren't allowed on the hiking trails). There are picnic areas with tables and grills randomly placed throughout the forest, several picnic shelters, and an arboretum where you can take a self-guided tour following signs that offer some insight into what you're seeing.

Exploring The Area

Now that you've seen the outdoors, it's time to investigate the human element that makes up the state of Indiana. A good place to start is by visiting Smithville, an unincorporated community with a significant history. It was established in 1851 and has had its own post office since 1854. The community has a friendly vibe and it's a good place to stretch your legs and take a walking tour of the town.Bedford is home to Hoosier National Forest and an underground cavern that has tours and an underground river running through it. There are flea markets and antique stores you can browse through, a brewery where you can put your feet up and sample their products, an art center, and a golf course where you can squeeze in a round or two. The restaurant scene in Bedford is competitive with a number of reasonably priced venues; the cuisine is mostly American style food with no surprises and good portions, but there are a few other choices on hand if you're looking for something different.Rest and relax or venture out when you're camping at Lake Monroe Village Campground near Bloomington; whatever it is you're looking for on your Indiana adventure, this is where you'll find it.

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.
