Old Chatham Road RV Campground

Summer trips to Cape Cod are a mainstay for much of southern New England; it’s a chance to enjoy the cool coastal breezes and get away from crowded cities like Boston and Providence. One of the best RV campgrounds on the Cape is Old Chatham Road RV Campground in the town of South Dennis. While communities like Hyannis and Provincetown are the most popular vacation spots on Cape Cod, they are also crowded during the summer tourist season – so much so that finding a place to park in P-Town should require its own guidebook. Fortunately, that’s not the case when you camp in an RV near Dennis.Old Chatham Road RV Campground has a variety of great amenities including a swimming pool, a playground, volleyball and basketball courts, and a game room. The resort also has some great children’s programs to keep the little ones busy and entertained while the adults take a much-needed rest. Sites at Old Chatham Road RV Campground can accommodate rigs up to 35 feet in length.The best part of choosing a rental motorhome near Old Chatham Road RV Campground is its central location. The park is only a few miles south of Cape Cod Bay and a few miles north of the Atlantic Coast, so it’s easy to get around on foot, bicycle, or public transportation. There aren't many truck stops on the Cape, so if you’re coming from the Providence or Boston area, it’s best to fuel up and dump tanks near the interstate.

The Great Outdoors

Motorhome camping on Cape Cod is all about the beach. Beaches to the north, beaches to the south, you just can’t go far from Dennis without running into a beautiful stretch of sand. One of the better beaches is Mayflower, a short drive to the northwest from Dennis’s downtown area. Clean, soft sand, boogie board rentals, and a wide tidal region make it a great beach for outings with the kids.However, it wouldn’t be a Cape Cod vacation if you didn’t at least spend some of your time out on the water. Travelers can pick up a kayak in Dennis and paddle along the beaches, and those wanting to go farther out should book a sportfishing tour with one of the outfitters in town. Bluefin tuna and striped bass are the name of the game around Cape Cod and are some of the most exciting species to pull in during your RV rental vacation.But not all outdoor activities on the Cape need to take place at the beach or in the ocean. One of the best cycling trails on the eastern seaboard can be found near the town of Falmouth, the Shining Sea Bikeway. The ten-mile-long trail stretches from Falmouth to the town of Woods Hole (where the Martha’s Vineyard ferry departs), passing cranberry bogs and windswept beaches along the way. If you don’t have your own set of wheels, there’s a bike shop near the trailhead that can set you up with one.

Exploring the City

Book an RV in Barnstable County, and you can explore the charming little towns of Cape Cod, most of which haven’t changed in the past 50 years. Artists, in particular, have been flocking to the area for just as long, searching for a quiet refuge away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Dennis is home to an extensive collection of works from these artists at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. The building is a classic example of Cape Cod architecture, and inside, you’ll find room after room of fascinating contemporary artwork.A tour of the Cape’s lighthouses is another must when you’re renting an RV near Dennis. Many of them look a bit different from the stereotypical tower lighthouses seen in other parts of the country as the Cape Cod-style lighthouse integrates the living quarters of the light’s keeper. Over 30 of them dot the Cape and surrounding islands, but one of the closest is West Dennis Light. The 44-foot-tall light was built in the mid-19th century and was taken out of service around the time of World War I. In more recent times, the light keeper’s quarters were turned into a small inn, and now the light is turned on whenever the inn is open.Foodies will also love a campervan rental vacation on the Cape, if for no other reason than the seafood. There are dozens of great restaurants in the Dennis area serving everything from fine dining to lobster rolls out of a shack. There’s something for every budget; what’s important is that you’re eating fresh catch-of-the-day.

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.
