The family-friendly campground in Rocky Gap State Park has a playground, a private beach for swimming, several bathhouses with hot running water, and a camp store. From the RV park, you have access to hiking trails, an aviary, a nature center, and seasonal canoe and kayak rentals. Some of the campsites at Rocky Gap Campground allow tent camping, and there are cabins and yurts you can rent as well.Rocky Gap State Park allows boating and fishing on Lake Habeeb (boat motors must be electrical only). The lake is stocked with catfish, largemouth and smallmouth bass, brown trout and rainbow trout, just to name a few. The state park also has several hiking trails, one of which loops around the lake and one of which is paved and possibly ADA accessible; another longer trail leads to the peak of Evitts Mountain where you can enjoy scenic views after completing a challenging trek. Hunting within the park is allowed within specific areas but hunters should be aware that some of the park's trails pass through the hunting area and exercise caution.

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Allegany County and you will be one step away from a vacation that most people only dream about. Once you've chosen a rental RV and claimed it, start your vacation by taking it for a spin on the local highways; driving a motorhome rental is one of the unique aspects of this kind of vacation and one you don't want to miss out on.Green Ridge State Forest occupies part of the Appalachian Mountain area and is a multi-use property that provides timber resources, wildlife habitat, and public recreation. The forest is a popular location for hunting, fishing, and primitive camping but also has numerous trails where you can hike, mountain bike, or go horseback riding.Buchanan State Forest is just a short distance across the Maryland-Pennsylvania state border; it was named after former president James Buchanan and covers parts of three different counties. It's a multi-use park providing timber and natural gas resources to communities while protecting the plant and animal life and providing public recreation opportunities. You can enjoy the usual activities within the park such as hiking, ATV riding, camping, and more. The park's forests consist of oak varieties (white, red, black, chestnut, and scarlet) interspersed with pine, hemlock, and red maple. If you park your RV rental here, you can use it as a wildlife observation blind while enjoying hot beverages and comfortable seating.Savage River State Forest, near Frostburg, is one of Maryland's largest state forests and includes a Garrett County watershed and more than a dozen miles of trails designed specifically for off-road vehicles such as dirt bikes, ATVs, and four-wheel-drive vehicles. It also provides opportunities for multiple summer and winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and white water canoeing. There are shelters throughout the park as well as primitive campsites and you can picnic here while enjoying the scenery. Backpackers should obtain a permit before heading out.

Exploring The Area

You should also spend some of your time here experiencing the culture and history of the area. Cumberland is a medium-sized city where you'll find the Great Allegheny Passage, a paved and level biking trail from Cumberland to Pittsburgh, PA. It has historical markers and towns along the route where you can stop if you wish, plus amazing scenery that can be enjoyed with minimal effort. Another attraction is the Paw Paw Tunnel which passes through a mountain; it is interesting but dark and the path uneven in places, so a flashlight and proper shoes are recommended. There are several parks and museums of note, several libraries, and a theater. If you enjoy history, there is the Allegany County Courthouse and George Washington's headquarters, a log cabin that was relocated from its original site.Bel Air is a small to medium-sized city with history and a number of notable residents, including John Wilkes Booth who was born here. One landmark you should consider viewing is the Liriodendron Mansion, a family summer home that was owned by one of the founders of John Hopkins Hospital and Medical School. There is an artist's gallery, several breweries, and a shopping mall where you can browse at your leisure. Bel Air has a wide selection of cuisines on hand when you decide to have a meal, from Italian and Mexican to Indian and an Irish pub. Prices are reasonable and many of the venues are locally owned and operated.

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.
