The Great Outdoors

If you haven’t seen all of Winter Island Park yet, then it’s about time that you get yourself down to the beach for some sandcastle building and swimming - don’t forget to bring a beach ball and some snacks. The water is excellent for both boating and fishing, so make use of the boat ramp and pier. You could also head to Salem Willows Park, where you can walk among the trees, after which the park was named and learn about their own little history: they were planted to bring happiness and relief to the nearby patients recovering from having been given the smallpox vaccine.If you brought your boat or have decided to get one as well as a motorhome rental, then you simply must take it to visit the Misery Islands. In Salem Sound, this area provides you with the most stunning views over Salem and the shoreline, and the leafy forest, small meadows, and rocky shore on the islands aren’t too shabby, either. Great Misery Island bears traces of having been a popular vacation resort, and if you wade from there to Little Misery Island, you can see the remains of a steamship.If you think that just because you rent an RV by the coast, you won’t have access to any beautiful forests, well, you are mistaken because Salem Woods is not hard to get to from your Salem campground. Here you can walk around the wetlands full of water hemlock, swamp milkweed, golden ragwort, and cinnamon fern while trying to spot a red fox, muskrat, or a quick gray squirrel. The place is popular with birds, too, so keep an eye open for swallows, hawks, and ducks.

Exploring the Area

Since you’re getting a camper rental in Salem, you might as well make the most of staying in this historic town. Not only is this a place that once welcomed ships from the other side of the Atlantic, but it’s also the location for the infamous Salem Witch Trials, which is apparent wherever you go. Step into the past in Salem Witch Museum or one of the other museums, or go to the Witch Trials Memorial that highlights the injustice done to the 20 innocent victims in 1692. You can also visit the House of the Seven Gables, which is full of stories and has inspired many dark tales.This isn’t all about the Trials, however, and you can see both contemporary and historical art at the Peabody Essex Museum or learn all there is to know about the maritime robbers at the New England Pirate Museum before going shopping for all sorts of unique items and gifts. Try to be in town for the Film Fest, Arts Festival, or the Salem Comedy & Spirits Festival - or you could have your fortune read by one of the present-day Salem witches. You’ll also find an array of cafés, restaurants, and seafood, so no need to go hungry in this picturesque town.Getting an RV rental near Winter Island Park Campground will give you a whole bunch of wonderful experiences as well as memories that’ll last for a lifetime, so don’t hesitate, book one right now.

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.
