The Great Outdoors

Camp in an RV near Nancy and you’re on the doorstep of the Pulaski County Park, which sprawls across 804 acres along the shores of Lake Cumberland. It’s located on the Fishing Creek leg of Lake Cumberland (one of the largest lakes in the country), with its rugged woodland forest inhabited by squirrels, deer, raccoons, and chipmunks. There are numerous hiking trails to explore in the Pulaski County Park, some of which leave directly from the campground.A short drive east of the Pulaski County Park takes you to the Daniel Boone National Forest, which encompasses around 708,000 acres of federally owned land. It’s divided into numerous state parks and wilderness areas, with about 600 miles of multi-use trails to explore. Head to the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park to photograph its namesake cascade or discover the geological wonders of the Natural Bridge State Resort Park. Daniel Boone National Forest also encompasses the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area where you can learn about the former mining community of Blue Heron.Camping at Pulaski County Park Campground is also a good base for visiting the General Burnside Island State Park, which encompasses 430 acres in the middle of Lake Cumberland. It’s the only island park in Kentucky and is named after a Union general from the Civil War who stationed his troops on the island. Aside from its scenic lake access, the park is most renowned for its public golf course, with stunning views on offer from many of its holes.

Exploring the City

Nancy campers can pick up grocery supplies in Somerset, which lies just 15 minutes’ drive to the east of the Pulaski County Park Campground. There are also numerous gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental, as well as a good choice of fast-food restaurants, gourmet eateries, and breweries if you want to dine out.While you’re in Somerset, don’t miss a visit to the Battle of Dutton’s Hill Monument, which commemorates the Confederate soldiers who died at the site. It’s not far from a large outdoor water park with a wave pool, water slides, and a lazy river. There’s a large kids’ play area where they can splash around safely, as well as a shallow wading pool. If you’re traveling with older kids, they’ll love the tube slide and body slides where they can race their family and friends to the bottom.A 25-minute drive in the other direction will take you to Russell Springs where you’ll find the historic Star Theater. Initially opened in 1949, it served as a movie theater for around three decades before being remodeled as a performing arts center. Check to see what’s taking place during your visit to Russell Country, with theatrical plays, dance, and musical performances regularly on the bill. If you’re traveling with kids, Russell Springs is also home to a city park with a children’s playground and a swimming pool where you can cool off during the summer months.Continue driving west from Russell Springs, and you’ll arrive in Columbia, which serves as the seat of Adair County and is home to its elegant courthouse. Admire the bright red Columbia-Union Presbyterian Church, then learn about the legacy of Colonel Frank L. Wolford at the marker dedicated to this champion of the Union. On the opposite side of the street, you'll see a marker for the home of Jane Lampton, the mother of renowned American writer Mark Twain and an original settler of Adair County.Whether you want to explore the local history or immerse yourself in the wilds of Daniel Boone National Forest, book an RV in Pulaski County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
