The Great Outdoors

A short drive from the KOA is Swan Island Wildlife Management Area in Bowdoinham. Nestled in the middle of the Kennebec River, Swan Island offers visitors a wonderful little “private island” of adventure and opportunity. With seven miles of easy hiking trails winding their way over the island, you will be able to explore the woodlands and meadows all while stealing glances toward the beautiful river. You can also rent a canoe or kayak on the island and explore the river for a different side of things.At home along the shores of one of Maine’s largest rivers is the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park in Turner, Maine. The undeveloped lands were acquired as part of a conservation initiative, so all that you will find here is pristine Maine wilderness. There are countless recreational opportunities available to those looking to explore, such as kayaking or canoeing along the Androscoggin River, exploring the multi-use trails either via foot, bike, horseback, or even ATV, or simply setting up a pole and trying your luck with a little bit of freshwater fishing.Those who aren’t afraid of a little drive can head to the Camden Hills State Park near Rockport. You’ll feel like you’re on the edge of the world as you gaze out into West Penobscot Bay and its many islands. You can hike up to the summit of Mt. Battie and enjoy picturesque views of the Bay, the town of Camden, and the surrounding Maine wilderness. Or instead, you can challenge yourself by climbing Mt. Megunticook, the tallest of the Camden Hills.

Exploring the City

History buffs making the journey to Vacationland are sure to be interested in the Maine State Museum just north of the Augusta/Gardiner KOA, in the capital city of Augusta. Here, you’ll be able to learn about the history of Maine and daily life in this pristine state. The museum also hosts rotating exhibits that also showcase the unique personality of the state.If you’re embarking on this campervan rental excursion with little ones, then you’ll be happy to know that Augusta is also home to the Children’s Discovery Museum. The children will be able to play in the pretend grocery store, learn about the Maine marine wildlife in the touch tank, and even enjoy making various arts and crafts.Those looking for a more quiet and reflective experience can travel west of the RV park to the Bates College Museum of Art. This beautiful art museum, on the campus of Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, showcases work done by the students, local artists, and work that reflects the world around us. You’ll be able to learn about not only the Maine art scene but how the natural beauty of the state helped influence many local artists.During your stay at Augusta/Gardiner KOA, you will be pleased to know that there are plenty of gas stations nearby for when you need to refuel your camper rental. However, if you find yourself looking for a grocery store, you will have better luck heading towards one of the larger towns, such as Augusta or Lewiston.When enjoying your motorhome rental near Richmond, make sure you set yourself up with some fresh, locally caught lobster. This delicacy is sure to make your mouth water and give you a true taste of what being a "Mainer" is all about.


There’s nothing quite like a good shower after an adventurous day in the outdoors! Here are 3 types of RV showers that will keep you clean and adventuring while on the road.

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.
