The Great Outdoors

While you're camping at the Scenic campgrounds, spend some time exploring Scenic State Park. The park is filled with old-growth forests, multiple lakes and waterways, and lots to explore in between. You can access the wilderness here thanks to the massive network of trails that wind through the park. You can also rent a canoe or kayak in the park and paddle through the many waterways and lakes within the park. You can still enjoy the park in the winter too. With snowshoeing and cross-country skiing opportunities throughout the park, you can still explore this winter wonderland.Those who enjoy spending time on the water can take a trip to the Kabetogama State Forest near Cook. This state forest is home to such an expansive system of waterways that the preferred method of travel is often canoe or kayak. You can rent watercraft at the park or nearby. In the winter, nature and hiking paths become trails for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. You can also try your hand at ice fishing for an authentic Midwestern experience.Angler will find a haven at Buena Vista State Forest near Bemidji, Minnesota, a 90-minute drive from the campsites at Scenic State Park. With five large lakes and many smaller bodies of water, at Buena Vista, you can try your luck at hooking some of the resident fish. Or instead, you can enjoy the expansive network of trails and feel connected not only to the natural beauty around you but also to the world in a broader sense. Humans have been known to explore the land in this area for over 1,000 years. Archaeologists have found artifacts all over the forest; there’s a deep sense of history here.

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.
