The Great Outdoors

Cape Cod isn’t just a collection of seaside villages and historic cottages. Some of the best beaches in the Northeast can be found on this amazing peninsula, along with some special conservation areas, campgrounds, and state parks. Scusset Beach State Reservation is not only a great place to camp but an excellent place to explore on foot too. The park was once an important meeting ground for Native American tribes, and during WWII, it contained strategic military outposts and fortifications. Swimming and fishing are the main reason most visit this coastal park, but sitting around a campfire on the beach at night while gazing at the stars is worth the visit too.Ellisville Harbor State Park is found several miles north of Sandwich. Red pine forests and breathtaking beaches are what you can expect when you arrive at this magical spot. Go fishing, take a hike, comb the beach for marine treasures, and observe archaeological sites left behind by Native Americans over 3,000 years ago. South Cape Beach State Park has some beaches of its own, except this park faces out into the Atlantic Ocean in southern Cape Cod by Falmouth. The beach is a little bit more rustic, lacking the facilities of other larger state parks; but what it lacks in amenities and features, it surely makes up for with its stunning wetlands, towering sand dunes, and estuaries teeming with all sorts of marine life.Toward the tip of the peninsula by Provincetown, you can visit the crown jewel of Cape Cod. Cape Cod National Seashore has 40,000 acres of protected land by the sea, with magnificent bluffs providing unbeatable views of the Atlantic Ocean. Beneath the bluffs, you can find miles and miles of exquisite beaches, with migratory birds, piping plovers, and sea turtles laying their eggs. Camp out, swim, hike, or bike; there are a thousand ways to make the most of your visit to Cape Cod, and this enchanting seashore is one of the best things you can see.

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.
