The Great Outdoors

Book an RV in Vigo County, and you will be all set to begin this epic adventure; there is no comparable feeling to driving a motorhome rental, cruising above the surrounding traffic, as you will soon find out. Turkey Run State Park is a mere 40-mile drive north of Terre Haute KOA; the park hosts some spectacular geography, such as deep sandstone ravines, old-growth tree stands, and scenic Sugar Creek. When you come here, you'll have an opportunity to hike and fish, but the park also has accommodation in case you decide to stay longer, a swimming pool, a nature center/planetarium, and much more, such as sheltered picnic areas.Just a few miles east of Turkey Run State Park and near the city of Waveland, Lake Waveland has been recognized as one of the top fishing destinations in the state. It has a camp store and bait shop where you can stock up on supplies and purchase your fishing license. The park has modern restroom and shower facilities in case you decide to swim in the lake, and it's a great destination for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. Park your RV rental nearby, and you can make a day of it or spend the night.If you head east from Terre Haute KOA, you'll find Lieber State Recreation Area (near the city of Cloverdale). The park is centered around Cagle Mill Lake, Indiana's first flood control reservoir. It has a nature center where you can learn more about the area's history, and an aquatic center which has a swimming pool and water slide. It also has an activities field with a playground, horseshoe pits, and basketball courts. Camping is allowed in the established campground, and there are trails for hiking and wildlife and nature observation.

Exploring The Area

When it's time to start thinking about heading indoors, Brazil is a quaint little town with a fountain, the Chafariz dos Contos Fountain, that it received as a gift from the similarly-named South American country. The city has several cultivated parks where you can race go-karts and a bandshell where the city's Brazil Concert Band has played concerts since the 1920s. Its history is represented by two historical log cabins that were relocated to Forest Park (an urban park within the city limits). Young kids will enjoy the entertainment complexes; one has a swimming pool, arcade games, and a cafe with frozen yogurt, the other is a corn maze with a variety of activities and farm animals you can pet and get up close with.If covered bridges are interesting, spend some time in Rockville which has several of these historical monuments. It is also home to Billy Creek Village, which has a museum and some older buildings that were saved from being torn down and relocated; one of them, a former school, is said to be haunted. Together they form a unique opportunity to take some photos to show back home. By now, you're probably hungry, and Rockville has a small but reasonably diverse selection of restaurants to choose from. There are several commercial chain-style restaurants that everyone enjoys, and several locally owned venues; one of the local establishments has a Friday night catfish buffet and a menu that is strong in home-style cooking.Whether it's outdoor recreation you seek, or history and culture, you will find it while renting a camper here, and Terra Haute KOA is the final touch to what will be a memorable vacation.

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.
