Use the restrooms and showers as well as the dump station, head to the camp store for some snacks and firewood, or let your kids play at the playground while you check out the amphitheater. The size of your motorhome rental doesn’t matter, either - there are pull-through sites ready for big rigs.When you’ve crossed all the local birds off your list, you can check out the stunning area. The RV campground is located on Cape Cod itself, so there won’t be any shortage of beaches, panoramic ocean views, and seafood. You’ll also see lighthouses, rich wildlife, and several lakes before heading to the nearby town of Brewster or Orleans, Eastham, or Harwich, all charming and picturesque towns.

The Great Outdoors

You’re already on the peninsula, so you might as well get into your RV rental and head to Cape Cod National Seashore. Here you can find even more of those delightful ponds, as well as woods and dunes, and beaches as far as the eye can see. Go swimming, surfing, and work on your tan, or you could spend hours on end fishing in the beautiful waters. Go for a lighthouse hunt or a ranger-guided tour - you can even get all sorts of fascinating stories and fun facts sent straight to your own phone.If you still feel like you haven’t quite made the most of being so close to the magnificent Atlantic, you can always go kayaking - or embark on a whale-watching excursion. The water surrounding Cape Cod is an ideal place to get close to the majestic marine mammals, and spotting at least a few is all but guaranteed. You might see a humpback or a finback, or perhaps an adorable pilot or minke whale. It’s even possible that the endangered and rare right whale makes an appearance when you’re out on your watch.Your campsite at Nickerson Campground might be surrounded by pine woods, but Cape Cod is more known for its salt marshes, which you can see for yourself at Mass Audubon’s Barnstable Great Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary. The views over the pale yellow marshes are outstanding, and you’ll also find open ponds and shady oak woodlands here. The important ecosystem attracts wildlife such as owls and turtles, so keep an eye open for them when hiking around this fantastic nature.

Exploring the Area

You won’t have to go far from your motorhome rental in Brewster to get a taste of the history of the area - great news for any history buffs who rent an RV near Nickerson Campground. Stop by Stony Brook Grist Mill & Museum and get a big dose of amazing scenery as well as learning about Brewster’s Factory Village, of which the picturesque mill is the only remaining structure. Another great place also found in Brewster is the Brewster Historical Society located in the gorgeous 1799 Elijah Cobb house, where you can see items from the past, as well as a blacksmith shop and a wooden windmill.The Brewster Historical Society doesn’t limit itself to a time gone by, but also organizes antique fairs where you can find that item you’ve been searching for, or take a look at the antique car and truck show. There are also farmers’ markets where you can pick up local fresh produce like eggs, meat, and flowers as well as baked goods and artisan food products - as well as locally caught scallops, lobster, and fish, of course. If this isn’t quite enough, you can always go on a dinner cruise - or a railway one.Cape Cod might just be the ultimate place if you want to combine your passion for RV camping and a gorgeous coastal environment - and who doesn’t?!

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?


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.
