The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Marshall County, and you will have a large selection to choose from when selecting the make and model that suits your needs. Kentucky is beautiful, and a good place to experience this for yourself is Shawnee National Forest, a short, one-hour drive from Paducah / I-24 / Kentucky Lake KOA. This nature preserve is host to oak-hickory forests and some amazing geological formations such as razorback ridges and lush canyons. It also has wetlands and a large and diverse selection of wildlife that calls the forest home. You can enjoy hiking in the park and observing the wildlife, but you also have the option of taking a self-guided auto tour of the area; several highways and smaller roads pass through the forest, and your Calvert City motorhome rental would be a relaxing way to enjoy this.Situated on a peninsula between Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is a 15-minute ride away and can be accessed by two different routes. Here you can enjoy canoeing and backpacking, but there is much more to see and do. The park has a planetarium that offers educational programs and live presentations, as well as a wildlife station. You will have an opportunity to witness elk and bison in their undisturbed home environments; you may also see coyotes, red wolves, great horned owls, and other species on your trek. Additional programs you can enjoy include lessons on gardening and wildlife photography.The Massac Forest Nature Preserve is about 30 miles from Paducah / I-24 / Kentucky Lake KOA and is a heavily forested area, with upland forests covering an area dominated by ridges and ravines, and a floodplain forest with silver maple and pecan tree stands. The upland forest areas consist of oak, hickory, and blackberry trees. You can hike or mountain bike in this area, but you should exercise caution in regard to snakes, ticks, and poison ivy. Park your RV rental nearby, and you can end your outdoor excursions with your favorite beverage and a comfortable chair.

Exploring The Area

You might want to leave some time for experiencing the culture and urban attractions that are waiting for you. Benton has music on its mind and in a big way. Spend some time here, and you can drop by the Kentucky Opry; while this isn't the Grand Ole Opry, it does have some Grand Ole Opry stars from time to time. It also hosts concerts for bluegrass, gospel music, and '50's to 60's rock and roll music. There are boutiques and shopping malls that will entertain the shoppers in your group, and a restaurant scene with good local and international cuisines for you to choose from.Not too far out of your way is the town of Princeton, which has elements that are both historical and contemporary. Be sure to visit the Adsmore House and Gardens, a family mansion that has been restored with all the original furnishings and opened to the public. Another must-see venue is a local vineyard/winery that includes an elegant restaurant.While you're here in Kentucky, make the most of this opportunity to see and experience as much as you possibly can, beginning with camping at Paducah / I-24 / Kentucky Lake KOA.

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.
