Several recreation areas and a few state parks are almost within walking distance when you rent an RV near South Isle Family Campground. Father Hennepin State Park is a small but incredible spot on the southern shores of the Mille Lacs Lake. The park is named for a French Franciscan priest who kept a log of the region’s streams, lakes, and terrain back in the 17th century, describing Minnesota’s beauty in great detail. The stunning wildlife that calls the park home is also part of its appeal, with ospreys, owls, eagles, and a whole bunch of other woodland critters.Mille Lacs Kathio State Park is found a few miles away from Father Hennepin State Park, with access to the lake as well. Both parks are fantastic places to go swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, or canoeing thanks to the wide-open Mille Lacs Lake. Mille Lacs Kathio State Park is actually a National Historic Landmark thanks to over a dozen archaeological sites within. Burial mounds and other ancient Native American structures dating back beyond 3000 BC can be visited while at the cherished state park.Split Rock Lighthouse State Park is two hours' drive north and worth the trip. This magnificent park on the shores of Lake Superior is home to one of the nation’s most photographed lighthouses, and the park sits high atop chiseled cliffs overlooking the lake.

City Attractions

If you want to see some museums or landmarks, both St. Cloud and Minneapolis are within easy driving distance. The Stearns History Museum in St. Cloud provides excellent insight into the history of central Minnesota, from the first pioneers and fur trappers to the proud Native American tribes who lived in the Great Lakes area for thousands of years. The vast genealogical records in the museum also draw people from all over the country to do family history research and uncover their ancestral pasts.Down in the capital region by St. Paul and Minneapolis, you can enjoy fine dining, shopping, and sightseeing. The Mall of America is one of the largest malls in the world, with an array of stores, eateries, entertainment venues, amusement parks, and other incredible features. Indoor roller coasters, movie theaters, and an aquarium can be found here too.The Minneapolis Institute of Art is housed in a gorgeous Greek-style building, with over 80,000 pieces of art in the permanent collection.

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.
