The Great Outdoors

Cherokee sits close to some of the most scenic byways in Iowa. One of the most colorful drives come fall is the Glacial Trail Scenic Byway, accessible from Peterson. And if you want to land trophy walleye, make a stop at the Little Sioux River near the dam on Linn Grove and enjoy a picnic in the public park located on either side of the river. The byway is a 36-mile loop that will take you through rolling rural scenery shaped by ice age glaciers and over the Waterman Creek and Little Sioux River several times before it brings you back to Peterson.For a more ambitious Cherokee camper rental road trip, head to the Stone State Park in Sioux City, where around 20 miles of rugged trails await mountain bikers, hikers, and equestrian riders. Exploring the trails will invigorate you for the epic journey ahead on the 220-mile Loess Hills Scenic Byway, which passes through the state park. On this scenic drive, look forward to a bucolic backdrop of prairie and forest-covered bluffs, and windblown silt land formations in Western Iowa sprinkled here and there with archaeological sites that date back to 1000 AD.You won't need to stray far from town to float on the Little Sioux River's Inkpaduta Canoe Trail. Winding from Spencer to Smithland for 134 miles, this watery course takes you on a slow-moving ride for a more contemplative appreciation of native wildlife along the way. Spy on great blue herons, soft-shelled turtles, and white-tailed deer.If your time allows, step ashore on sand bars strewn with mussel shells and polished stones, with the occasional fossil, petrified bone, and ancient shark teeth in the mix. The canoe trail has plenty of access points and a few challenging obstacles within Cherokee County, so you can plan for a relaxing float or a camping and floating adventure over a period of three days or more.

Exploring the Area

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
