The Great Outdoors

To enjoy the scenic views of the Minnesota River, you can head just down the road from the RV park to Minnesota Valley State Recreation Area in Jordan, Minnesota. At just under 5,500 acres, the area welcomes visitors to explore its wetlands and forests. You can enjoy a scenic hike along the river or along one of the nature trails that wind through the forest. If you’re traveling in the winter, you can enjoy those same trails with some snowshoes. There is also a boat ramp along the river, which gives you access to explore the water from another angle.North of Minneapolis Southwest KOA, just past the Minneapolis city limits, is the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge in Zimmerman. At over 30,000 acres, the refuge is comprised of wetlands and rivers, tallgrass prairies, oak savanna, forests, and even a section of the “Big Woods,” Minnesota’s large hardwood forest. The refuge primarily works to preserve the unique habitats and give migratory birds a safe stopping point to rest. Nesting pairs of sandhill cranes make the refuge their home during the spring, and by the end of summer, you just might catch a glimpse at one of the baby birds. When autumn approaches, however, more migratory birds will make the refuge their temporary home as they rest up to make the journey south.Those searching for a leisurely day outside can head a little farther south to Seven Mile Creek County Park in Kasota. The easy nature trails that wind through the park offer those traveling with young kids the ability to enjoy getting into nature with relative ease. The park also boasts a variety of recreational equipment, such as a playground for children and a few volleyball courts. You can also stroll along the creekside and delight in the calm creek as it passes through this hidden gem of a natural wonderland.

Explore the City

Those who want to enjoy some time in the water can plan a fun-filled day at the water park in Shakopee. The pool is designed to mimic the lakes in the area. Sandy beaches make up the perimeter of the pool, which even has a sandy bottom. You can also enjoy the multiple water slides when you head here on a hot day during your RV rental vacation.If your travel plans land sometime during August or September, you can head just up the road to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. With jousting, dancing, staged performances, and singing, there is so much to enjoy at this festival. You can try your luck at some of the carnival games, indulge in some mead and turkey legs, or do a little bit of shopping at the local artisan stalls. Penn & Teller got their start at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, so you never know what up-and-coming acts you might get to see.History buffs traveling to the region can head a little farther north of the RV park to the Scott County Historical Society. You can learn about the beginnings of the fur trade, one of the earliest markets in the Midwest, view historical artifacts, and enjoy the rotating exhibits. The historical society also protects and preserves several historic buildings, many of which are open for tours, and also has exhibits in off-site locations, such as in the local courthouse. The staff here will be able to point you in the right direction for your interests.During your RV camping trip, you can restock supplies and fuel up at one of several gas stations and grocery stores in the area. When enjoying the sites and beauty of the Land of 10,000 Lakes, you’re going to work up an appetite. Whether you’re looking for something savory, like hotdish, a casserole topped with tater tots, or something sweeter, like a krumkake, a waffle cookie rolled up and filled with cream, you will never run out of options in Minnesota.

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.
