The Great Outdoors

Visit a spectacular 200-foot waterfall at Dunning Springs Park and Ice Cave Hill. Though the park is relatively small (about 115 acres), it is very secluded and full of history. The park boasts miles of hiking trails, a scenic overlook, a cascading waterfall and stream, a stone arch bridge, an ice cave, and historical information signs. Quite the oddity, the Decorah Ice Cave freezes during the summer, kept cold by a glacier below the surface. If you want to access the wild cave, be sure to bring shoes with good grip, a helmet, warm clothing, a headlamp, and at least one other form of light.

The Prairie Farmer Trail is the perfect way for people of all ages and abilities to spend time outdoors. The 20-mile paved stretch of paths runs from Calmar to Cresco and offers spectacular views of the countryside, wildflowers, and birdwatching opportunities. Along the route, you’ll find several stops for restrooms, dining, ice cream, playgrounds, and more. It’s a great way to explore the area when you book an RV rental in Decorah, Iowa.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
