The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Trigg County are your best bet for finding the RV rental that best suits your needs. Once you have it, point it towards Shawnee National Forest, a short 50-mile drive from Kentucky Lakes / Prizer Point KOA. The forest has two points where you can access it and this one, near Hopkinsville, is the closest of the two. You can enjoy hiking here and will be exposed during your venture to stands of oak-hickory forests, lush canyons, and razorback ridges. There are wetlands interspersed throughout and a varied selection of wildlife that lives within the special habitat. If scenic relaxation is more your speed, take a driving tour in your motorhome rental along the highways and smaller roads that dissect the park.The Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is where you can enjoy canoeing and backpacking, observe elk and bison, coyotes and red wolves, and many other resident species that depend on the area's habitat for survival. Educational programs and live presentations are hosted in the park's planetarium, as well as training sessions on gardening and wildlife photography. The on-site wildlife station has exhibits explaining the ecology and wildlife that are found there and well-trained staff who can answer your questions.The Massac Forest Nature Preserve is a diverse ecosystem, with ridges and ravines that support upland forests containing oak, hickory, and blackberry tree stands, and a floodplain forest dominated by silver maple and pecan tree forests. Hiking and mountain biking is possible within the preserve, but there are snakes, ticks, and poison ivy, so you should exercise caution. End your excursion with a snack and a beverage in your rental RV, and you'll have the best of both worlds.

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.
