The Great Outdoors

Whether you’re embarking on a road trip across America or visiting family in the area, it doesn’t matter what the reason behind visiting this slice of Midwest paradise is; you should book an RV in Jasper Country and get ready to let the good times roll.Conveniently located in the middle of Iowa, Newton KOA is the ideal base for visiting everything that this homey state has to offer. With Elk Rock State Park in Knoxville only a 30-minute drive away, why not load up the kids, pack a picnic, and spend a day on the largest body of water that Iowa has to offer?There’s plenty to keep you busy with swimming, boating, and fishing all on offer, or if you prefer to keep your feet firmly on dry ground; there are 13 miles of multi-use trails for hiking or even mountain biking.Or if you’re feeling like a more relaxed day, consider staying right there in Newton and heading over to the Newton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Taking up six acres, there are hundreds of plants and trees to take in, with plenty of spots to stop for a picnic and even an education center to keep the kids amused.But before you head out to find some green spaces, you’ll be pleased to hear that Newton KOA is actually based within the Thirty Mile Park - meaning that you can wander straight from your RV to the forested trails, and even walk along the edge of the meandering stream that winds its way through the grassland.

Exploring the Area

A visit to Newton KOA simply would not be complete without a visit to the Iowa Speedway. It's just over the road and far enough away to not impact your restful night's sleep. The Iowa Speedway is home to Indycar and Nascar events. Even if you’re not a fan of racing, it would be worth a visit purely to try out some of the signature food and drinks on offer at the track, with pork fries, Iowa dogs, and a nice refreshing fountain drink to wash it down.Once you’ve met a few folks on race day, you’ll definitely want to hit downtown Newton and see what else this endearing little town has to offer. Take a drive along 1st Avenue West, and you’ll find a plethora of dining options, coffee shops, bakeries, mom-and-pop establishments, and stores to pick up local souvenirs.If you’re looking for a little culture, you can pack up after breakfast and be in the unique city of Cedar Rapids by lunch. It’s well known for its stunning location on both banks of the Cedar River and for being the arts and culture hub of Iowa.If you’re looking for some big-city fun, make your way over to nearby Des Moines in your RV rental and get ready for more activities than you can shake a stick at, with some of the must-see locations, including the Capitol Building and the Downtown farmer’s market.And if it’s at all possible, consider booking your trip for early August to coincide with the Iowa State Fair - one of the greatest in all of the United States. But Newton KOA can fill up really fast when there’s something exciting going on nearby, so be sure to book your camper rental and campground well in advance, like now for example - come on, what are you waiting for?

There’s nothing quite like a good shower after an adventurous day in the outdoors! Here are 3 types of RV showers that will keep you clean and adventuring while on the road.

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.
