The Great Outdoors

RV camping at Pikes Peak Campground puts you in the southern part of the picturesque Pikes Peak State Park, so you can start enjoying its incredible landscape as soon as you get out of your camper. Over ten miles of hiking trails meander through the park, ranging from an easy hike to Bridal Veil Falls to a more challenging Chinquapin Ridge Trail. Some parts of the trail system are available for biking, and if you get tired along the way, pick one of the picnic spots and rest in the shade of lush trees or picnic shelters. The natural features of the park are quite unique, from the wooded bluffs and the towering walls of Decorah limestone to the fossil remains you can find around the park. It is open year-round, and visitors can always take part in some interesting activities, ranging from wildlife viewing to cross-country skiing.For a change of scenery, travel south and enter the magical world of rock formations and natural bridges that is Maquoketa Caves State Park. From hiking and discovering the countless shapes of nature to spelunking in the depths of mysterious caves, every moment spent in this wonderful place will be an adventure. RV camping is the best way to discover the park – you can stay until you have reached all its nooks and crannies and spent some time floating down the nearby Maquoketa River.If you hit the road heading east in your rental RV, after a couple of hours, you will reach a place with a unique name and even more unique nature – Devil’s Lake State Park. One of the oldest and largest parks in Wisconsin, it is home to a network of trails where both novice and experienced hikers can find a trail to their liking. A portion of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail also runs through the park, offering breathtaking views along the way. The lake is at the heart of the park, great for numerous aquatic activities such as swimming, boating, scuba diving, and fishing. Experienced climbers can try climbing the rocks, while campers who just want to relax can sit back and rest their eyes on lush greenery.

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.
