Indiana is well known for its history, especially in relation to the Underground Railroad, and a vacation delving into this begins with Richmond KOA, a family-oriented RV park just steps away from what many call “the Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad.” Richmond KOA has a sparkling swimming pool (a summer necessity) but goes one step further with social activities ranging from crafts, hayrides, and movies to barbecues, hot dog cookouts, and ice cream. You'll also find an on-site nature trail, a Kamp K9, basketball and tetherball courts, a horseshoe pit, and mini-golf course, among other activities.When you book your site, you'll be able to choose between 30 amp and 50 amp electricity, full hookups or water/electrical hookups, and pull-through or back-in sites (most of the sites have pull-through access). There are laundry facilities and restrooms and showers where you can freshen up as soon as you've arrived, a recreation room and lounge next to the office, cable TV channels, and Wi-Fi so you can touch base with folks back home. The camp store can help you to stock up on whatever you need, including propane if you're running low and there is a lake within the compound with a boat ramp and a dock so you can fish (there is no swimming in the lake, however). All that's left is to set your favorite lawn chair outside your RV rental and start enjoying the good life.When it's time to venture out with the Richmond camper rental, you'll find a lot to explore. Antique Alley in the city of Richmond is widely known as one of the premier antique destinations in Indiana, with hundreds of dealers spread out over miles upon miles of streets dedicated to this year-round venue. The Historic Richmond Depot District is a collection of chic and funky small, locally owned businesses all located within a vibrant neighborhood. The Whitewater Valley Railroad provides a scenic train ride from Connersville to Metamora that is open on weekends. The Kings Island amusement park has a collection of roller coasters (some of the best in the world), a water park, and a kids' play area. It also has an assortment of food outlets scattered throughout the park plus shows and special events that the whole family can enjoy.

The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Wayne County are the perfect solution to your RV camping needs and the quickest way to get your vacation up and running. Summit Lake State Park, approximately 30 miles northwest of Richmond KOA, is a nature preserve and public recreation area centered around its namesake lake, with prairie sections, low-lying wet meadows, and Zeigler Woods, an undisturbed tree stand in the southwest corner of the park. The park is an excellent venue for bird watching, with waterfowl and migratory bird species such as bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and osprey, just to name a few. You can also swim, picnic, and hike here in the summer; in the winter, you will have the opportunity to enjoy ice fishing and cross-country skiing before returning to your rental RV for warm drinks and a comfortable chair.Whitewater Memorial State Park is located 22 miles from Richmond KOA at the north end of Brookville Lake and was created in 1949 when the Brookville Reservoir was built. If you decide to visit here in your motorhome rental, you can swim in the lake, hike the trails that follow the lake shoreline, and boat or fish on the lake. Camping and picnicking are allowed, and there are cabins that can be rented. Canoes and rowboats can be rented on-site, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the view from the lake and get some fishing in if you prefer; the park is an ideal spot for ice fishing in the winter.Slightly farther south from Whitewater, Mounds State Recreation Area is one of two SRAs located on Brookville Lake (the other being Quakertown State Recreation Area). The area is an archaeological gold mine with prehistoric Native American mounds scattered throughout the Whitewater River Valley and fossils that date back to a primeval inland sea. Other amenities you will find and enjoy are beaches with access to swimming, campsites, boating and sport fishing, and dozens of miles of hiking trails. The park includes a shooting range and an archery facility.

Exploring The Area

When you're ready to come indoors, there are a number of interesting towns to choose from, but nearby Liberty is a small friendly community with some historically significant buildings. One of these is the Union County Courthouse, which is included on the National Register. If you visit here, take some time to enjoy a walking tour of the town, taking in the scenery and the architecture on display. Liberty also has a small but diverse culinary scene, with British and Mexican restaurants, a pizzeria, and much more. One of the cafes has outdoor seating and a menu with steak, seafood, and pasta entrees, salads and sandwiches, and a kids' section.Indiana is well known for its cuisine, and if you make it to the city of Winchester, be sure to stop in at one of the local bakeries that specializes in pies; you may even want to grab one or two to enjoy later in your camper rental after you make it back to Richmond KOA. You can take in a round of golf while you're here, or hit the shops and boutique stores; one of them deals in coins and precious metals.History, architecture, and vast memorable outdoor spaces; Indiana has it all. Camping at Richmond KOA is only the beginning of your action-packed excursion here.

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.
