The Great Outdoors

Just a short drive away from your campsite at Sylvan Park is Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park near Preston, Minnesota. This is a great destination for history lovers as well as nature lovers. Within the park are the restored structures of the 19th-century village of Forestville. You can explore the Victorian structures, learn about the agricultural history of the area, and even take a tour. Those interested in seeing something natural and unique can sign up for a tour of Mystery Cave; it's the longest cave in Minnesota, spanning more than 13 miles. There are a variety of tours you can take to learn more about this unique formation.When you book an RV in Fillmore County, you can head closer to the Wisconsin border and visit Beaver Creek Valley State Park in Caledonia, Minnesota. With eight miles of trails that meander through several different wilderness and recreation sites, there is lots of unique landscape to see. In the winter, the trails are converted to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing “highways” so you can explore the stunning winter wonderland. If you’re traveling in the spring, you are in for a treat. The meadows of the park come to life with wildflowers, and the “Big Spring” fills with various trout species, making it an angler's paradise.To experience the truly rugged landscape of Minnesota, head to the Rushford Sand Barrens Scientific and Natural Area in Rushford. With no maintained trails and no recreational facilities, visitors can escape to the true wilderness of the state. There are meadows to explore, prairie hills to climb, and plenty of opportunities for wildlife and wilderness photography. Avian lovers will enjoy visiting this site. Rushford Sand Barrens is labeled as an Audubon Important Bird Area, meaning that it is recognized as an important place to preserve due to either the variety of bird species and/or the living conditions for species. When you’re here, you just might get to see the rare cerulean warbler or Arcadian flycatcher.

Explore the City

Those who enjoy learning some history can spend some time at the Lanesboro Museum. With exhibits focused on the women of Lanesboro, how the railroad changed the town, and the changes in agricultural technology, there is much to learn. You can also check out the research library while you're here. Lanesboro Museum also hosts a variety of children’s events, such as scavenger hunts.Those looking for a night out on the town can take in a show at the Commonweal Theatre Company. Considered one of the top professional theaters in Minnesota, the Commonweal produces dramas, comedies, and musicals to entertain the masses. From spring to winter, there is always something on the stage at Commonweal.Those looking for a truly unique experience can arrange a guided tour of Amish country. You’ll get to travel to one of the largest Amish communities in Minnesota and learn about the residents' lifestyle. You’ll also have the opportunity to support these communities as you browse their various farm stalls and markets.While you're camping at Sylvan Park Campground, you may need to restock and refuel. For a quick shopping trip, there is a market and gas station in town. However, if you need more options, head to the nearby town of Preston along Highway 52.Minnesota is home to some of the best dairies in the country. No matter the weather, freshly churned ice cream is a delectable treat. You can head to the ice cream shop in downtown Lanesboro and enjoy a locally made scoop.

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.
