The Great Outdoors

You’ve seen it from a distance, but now it’s time to actually visit Martin National Wildlife Refuge, part of Smith Island. This place is truly magical, whether you love the ocean or if it’s bird watching that makes your heart beat faster. With panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay in every direction, hike among tidal marsh, creeks, and coves while looking at the thousands of both migratory and nesting birds such as long-tailed ducks, tundra swans, oystercatchers, and black ducks. If you don’t have a list of birds to cross off already, you’d better start working on one.If you want even more coastal recreation and wildlife, then get into your motorhome rental and head to Assateague Island National Seashore. This large area really has it all - if you’re at all interesting in fishing, crabbing, or stunning beaches, wetlands, and dunes, that is. Go on a tour guided by a ranger, take a little kayak trip, or just walk around this fantastic environment that so many animals call their home. See beautiful birds, try to spot a seal, or admire the wild ponies that roam this outstanding island.Should you want to mix it up a bit and experience some leafy forests made up of loblolly pine, mixed pine-hardwood, and bottomland hardwood, then off to Pocomoke State Forest you go. Much of this area used to be farmland but is now a place full of excellent opportunities for some outdoor recreation. Hike past the gorgeous trees or head to the swamps to spot wildfowl - perhaps you’ll see a deer and a wild turkey, too.

Exploring the Area

This area has a whole lot of history; park your motorhome rental in Crisfield and take a walk around if you want to learn more about it. Start with the J. Millard Tawes Museum, where you can see and explore various exhibits that will tell you about the maritime past of the town. There’s a little bit about natural history, the crab and oyster industries, shipbuilding, and decoys in the mix. If you’re intrigued by the decoys, then visit The Ward Brothers Workshop, where the genius brothers transformed the world of carving.The town of Crisfield doesn’t just have a lot of heritage, but it’s very eventful as well. Depending on when you go, you’ll be able to attend a spring yard and art sale, the Strawberry Festival, or several other occasions that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Have breakfast with Santa in the winter, or stick around for one of the many crab-themed events, such as the Annual Soft Shell Festival or the J. M. Tawes Crab & Clam Bake.Unless you don’t really like crabs that much, you have absolutely no reason not to book an RV near Janes Island Campground right this second, so hop to it.


It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

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.
