This state park consists of 500 acres of converted farmlands, which gives visitors plenty of open space to explore. Hikers will love trekking along Goose Creek, and various mile-long trails run along the river's banks. If you're feeling competitive, the park has a plethora of sports fields to play in, including tennis, basketball, and badminton courts. Birdwatchers should be sure to bring their binoculars to spot some of the many species of birds that frequent the park, including Carolina wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmice.If you're looking to discover what the Ohio River has to offer, then plan a trip to Falls of the Ohio State Park. This vast state park contains a wide variety of activities to enjoy. Hikers will love the seven-mile-long greenway that takes you along the Ohio River and past the interpretive center, where you can learn more about this famous river. There are also lots of water sports to enjoy including boating and kayaking. The Ohio River is an excellent fishing spot, with catches including walleye, catfish, and a variety of bass. If you're looking for a historical site to explore at the park, then visit the home of George Rogers Clarke, who was a prominent figure during the American Revolutionary War.Another fantastic state park to visit during your campervan rental near Lousiville is the Lincoln Homestead State Park.

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.
