Lake Ahquabi Campground

One of the benefits of an RV camping vacation is that you can wake up each morning to an undisturbed natural setting right at your feet and still be only minutes away from whatever necessities you may need. This is exactly what Lake Ahquabi Campground offers; RV sites with electricity, picnic tables, and fire rings that are a short walking distance from the lake and a sandy beach. When you're camping at Lake Ahquabi Campground, you'll have access to restrooms with showers, the pristine quiet that only a natural area removed from urban centers can provide, and still be close enough to Indianola to pop in and out whenever you feel like it. Some of the sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis but most require reservations to be made in advance.Once you're settled in, you can rent boats, canoes, and kayaks to enjoy paddling on the lake or fishing, or you can fish from one of the shoreline jetties or an ADA-compatible fishing pier. A concession area is nearby where you can find firewood, snacks, ice, and bait, and pay for boat rentals. A nature center is also nearby, where you can observe the displays, gather information, and ask for recommendations. Farther out from the campground, which is part of the Lake Ahquabi State Park, there are trails where you can hike and mountain bike, observe the plant and animal life, and bird watch; the campground and park are open year-round, and in the winter, you can enjoy cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Warren County, and you can choose the rental RV that best fits your needs. Begin your vacation by jumping behind the wheel of your Indianola motorhome rental and heading to Stephens State Forest. Stephens is divided into several different areas; most of them are undisturbed outdoor recreational areas with no human-made amenities such as picnic areas, designated trails, or restrooms, but they do have dirt roads and access lanes you can use to explore and observe. One of the areas has picnic sites, trails, campgrounds, and several ponds.Woodland Mounds State Preserve is a multi-use area with a strong history; European settlers arrived in the late 1800s and began harvesting the timber for building shelters and firewood, as well as unearthing pieces of sandstone which were used to create foundations for their buildings. Today a part of the preserve is closed to the public to provide a habitat for neotropical migrant birds and other woodland wildlife; the remaining area is tasked for outdoor recreation with a picnic area and miles upon miles of hiking trails. While you're enjoying them, keep on the lookout for some of the Woodland Indian mounds that represent the area's first inhabitants.Pickard Recreation Area is a cultivated outdoor recreation area where you can enjoy picnic shelters and tables, a horseshoe court, ball fields, and biking and walking trails. There are restrooms and water fountains, plus an 18-hole disc golf course, a basketball court, and a pond. You can come here to relax and enjoy the views, or make use of the amenities; it's a popular destination with residents and is routinely used for local events which you can observe.

Exploring The Area

Once you've had your fill of the great outdoors, take some time to enjoy the history and culture of the area, starting with Osceola. This smaller town has urban parks and preserves, and a riverboat-themed casino if you happen to enjoy gaming and other nightlife options. If you enjoy scenic landmarks, there is a Catholic church among others which has beautiful decor and architecture and is nestled in breathtaking surroundings. The restaurant scene in Osceola is well represented with a number of commercial chain restaurants and some locally owned and operated options. Most of the venues are reasonably priced so you can eat out without breaking the bank.Knoxville is similarly an attractive city with a friendly atmosphere and great architecture; the town's county courthouse was built in 1846 and has a spire at the top center of its roof. It also has a renowned raceway and a museum-hall of fame with exhibits and memorabilia related to auto racing. Young kids (and kids of all ages) will enjoy the outdoor go-kart track, and there are a vineyard and winery for the adults. Come dinnertime, you'll have several options to choose from, and most of them are inexpensive to reasonably priced. The restaurant scene has a small variety of cuisines on hand, but they are diverse enough to satisfy everyone and are almost exclusively owned and operated.Walden-like scenery, culture, history, architecture, or whatever you're looking for, it's here, and settling into a campsite at Lake Ahquabi Campground is a great way to start your explorations.

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.
