Looking for an easily accessible RV park from I-90 to break up the long drive to Mount Rushmore National Memorial or the Badlands National Park, all while enjoying the perks of a comfortable life on the road? Then Jackson KOA is worth looking into. Shaded and level sites, amenities, and entertaining activities welcome campers, travel trailers, and motorhomes of all shapes and sizes. Roll into leafy sites up to 100 feet long and hook up to water, sewer, and 50/30 amp electrical service. If you only need access to water and electricity, the sites with 30 amp service should probably suffice. Wi-Fi is available and, in open sites, satellite connectivity.Find the heated swimming pool (open from late May to early September) adjacent to the pavilion, showers/restrooms, and the laundry area. Nearby are a volleyball court, a mini-golf course, and a horseshoes pit. Your kids will surely love the playground and your furry ones, the dog park. Should you need provisions (including seasonal vegetables) and supplies for your campervan rental, check the camp store. Propane and firewood are also for sale on-site.On weekends, look forward to hayrides, sing-alongs, and ice cream socials. The campground also hosts military, RV and motorcycle clubs. Venturing out of the campground for pro-golf takes you to nine-hole courses nearby, and a bit farther out, at Loon Lake where fishing yields abundant crappie and walleye.

The Great Outdoors

"Water falling twice" awaits at Minneopa State Park where the Minneopa Creek tumbles over a limestone ledge, creating the twin waterfalls the park is famous for. There's also a trail through oak savanna and native prairie grasslands that will take you to a lookout with a commanding view over a scenic valley. A herd of purebred bison can also be viewed while driving through the park's 330 acres of enclosure. The fence allows the herd to graze and roam, as they once did by the thousands in this area, in a more natural setting.Search for an RV in Jackson County and enjoy a moderate hike along hilly terrain that takes you through prairie, oak savanna, and floodplain forest. Kilen Woods State Park is less than half an hour’s drive away when you’re camping at Jackson KOA and offers hikers five miles of trails to explore. The tranquil Des Moines River flows through the park and provides ample opportunities for anglers to fish for walleyes, catfish, and bullheads. For a closer encounter with herons, beavers, and muskrats, dip a paddle on the river and soak up the solitude.A curious herd of elk, buffalo, and deer can be found amidst the prairie grasses of southwestern Minnesota – one that is etched onto uncovered rock. More than 5,000 of such carvings are found at Jeffers Petroglyphs where the oldest etchings go as far back as 7,000 years. Native American tribes consider this site as one of their most sacred places, and one of the oldest continuously used sites in the world. Take your Jackson camper rental for an hour-long drive to the site where you can join a guided tour to learn more from Native American elders or embark on a self-guided hike through short prairie trails.

Exploring the City

Summer is a fantastic time to come visit, especially if you’re a racing fan. Accommodation is likely hard to come by during the Jackson Nationals, so why not rent a camper near Jackson KOA to get close to the action? You can easily fill up on gas in one of the city’s several gas stations when camping with an RV, and restock your provisions from one of the few convenience and grocery stores. Dining options are numerous, with a dozen or so restaurants serving barbecue and grill fare, American comfort food, and quick bites.The Jackson Motorplex is home to the fastest 1/2-mile dirt track in a five-state area. Stock and hobby cars racing as well as sprint car and limited sprint car racing are held at the speedway over three nights. If you can’t catch this yearly event, regular races take place every Saturday night from May through September.Leave your rental motorhome at Jackson KOA and walk through the green fields of Fort Belmont to view replicas of an 1860's log cabin, working grist mill, and hand-built prairie sod house. Come anytime between Memorial Day through Labor Day for tours, though you might want to time your visit during the fort's annual Pioneer Days when you’ll learn more about butter churning, blacksmithing and lefse (Norwegian flatbread) making. Demonstrations on tomahawk and knife-throwing and traditional longbow archery are also held during this summer event (usually in late August).For a look at what Main Street might have looked like in the past, a walk through the Jackson County Fair Village, which consists of 20 historical buildings with furnishings and antique machinery, is highly recommended. The Fair Village is open during the Jackson County Fair held in late July. Similarly, exhibits about early settlement, housekeeping, and homemaking can be viewed at the Jackson County Historical Society Museum. To gain insight into the Indian conflicts of 1857 and 1862, browse the museum’s display of these pivotal events.With Jackson’s wealth of history, natural attractions, and exciting events, what more can you ask for? But dig a bit deeper and look beyond its borders and you’ll see this is just a sampling of what Jackson has to offer. Make your travel plans now and book an RV rental in Jackson, Minnesota. It's going to be a life-changing journey of discovery, and you deserve it.

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.
