The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Wabash County are your best bet for finding the rig that is perfect for you. Once you've found it and you're behind the steering wheel, point it towards Kokiwanee Nature Preserve, an undisturbed outdoor recreation area that also acts as a habitat for a variety of tree species, wildflowers, and birds such as wood ducks, bald eagles, and great blue herons. The preserve has a hiking trail of moderate length, but the trail is challenging; you should dress appropriately and be prepared (with drinking water and a compass, among other items). If you take the challenge, hiking here will take you past streams, waterfalls, and creekside bluffs.Just a 20-minute drive from your campsite at Salamonie Lake Campground, you'll find J. E. Roush Fish and Wildlife Area, a multi-use preserve offering outdoor recreation to the public while providing habitat for the wildlife that resides here. The area is primarily used for fishing and hunting, but it is also an ideal destination for observing bird species like waterfowl and mammals. The area is home to a state-of-the-art shooting range, allows for camping and picking nuts and berries (plants and flowers should not be picked or removed without written permission). Park your RV rental nearby, and you can use it as your own personal wildlife blind with hot food and comfortable chairs.Miami State Recreation Area is one of four SRA's located on Mississinewa Lake (the others being Red Bridge SRA, Frances Slocum SRA, and Pearson Mill SRA). The lake is surrounded by a combination of forest, open prairie, and farmland that has helped to create a diverse selection of wildlife who call the area home. While you're here, you can enjoy hiking and bicycling, swimming, boating and fishing, and waterskiing. Some of the human-made amenities include basketball and volleyball courts, a frisbee golf course, and a cleaning station where you can prepare your catch of fish after they're caught. Hunting and picnicking are allowed, and there is a covered shelter that can be reserved.

Exploring The Area

When you've had your fill of the outdoors, there is still lots to see and experience. Huntington is a medium-sized city with an established history and many points of interest that may encourage you to take a walking tour. There are plenty of locations to get your shopping fix taken care of, museums, public libraries and learning centers, and a winery where you can sit back and indulge while celebrating your accomplishments. One of the city's scenic attractions is a former rock quarry that has been restored into a sunken garden with a gazebo, stone bridges, and koi ponds. In the winter, the garden is strung with lights to amplify the area's beauty; the park can be booked for private functions such as weddings. Huntington has a number of restaurants where you can refuel for a reasonable price, including pizzerias, pub restaurants, and family diners, so there truly is something for everyone.Marion has culture galore, which you'll notice almost from the moment you arrive. Some of the landmarks include a national cemetery, a memorial to actor James Dean (who was born in Marion), the Grant County Courthouse, and a Quilters Museum. For younger kids, there is an urban park and a waterpark with a splash house. Marion has an interesting restaurant scene with Thai and Japanese restaurants, Greek cuisine, pizzerias, and that's just for starters. Like many small towns, prices are reasonable, so lunch or dinner for a small family won't cost you an arm and a leg.Whether you come in the summer or winter, Indiana has what you're looking for, and settling into a campsite at Salamonie Lake Campground is the first step to exploring this diverse area.

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.
