The Great Outdoors

If you don’t want to go far from your RV park but still want to witness the natural beauties of the region, spend a day at Silver Beach County Park. At the mouth of the St. Joseph River on the shores of Lake Michigan, it is a haven for swimmers who want to find refreshment during summer months. You can also go for a walk along the South Pier and relax in the light breeze coming from the lake. Sports enthusiasts can play some volleyball, and there are pavilions and picnic tables for those who just want to sit back and enjoy.With its iconic red lighthouse and the location between Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan, Holland State Park is another must-visit destination. Swimming, boating, and fishing are the most popular activities here, and visitors can also disappear into the wooded areas of the park and find one of the trails they can follow. Bikers have a unique chance to stay active and take in the stunning vistas of the lake while biking along the shore.Follow the Lake Michigan shoreline to the south in your rental RV, and you will arrive at Indiana Dunes National Park, a natural gem only an hour's drive away. In addition to miles of wonderful beaches, Benton Harbor campers will find rolling sand dunes, prairies, wetlands, and forests, making the park a truly unique place.

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.
