The Great Outdoors

Book one of the RV rentals in Clinton County, and you can start your vacation by heading for Platte Falls Conservation Area, a popular outdoor recreation area that was established around 1980. The area consists of several different types of landscapes, such as upland and bottomland forest stands, grasslands, wetlands, and agricultural lands that can be leased. The Platte River flows through the park, and you can enjoy tubing, swimming, and other activities in the river; you can also enjoy hiking and birdwatching, and hunting is allowed in season. The park has shooting ranges for archery and shotguns.Smithville Lake is located near Trimble and is a prime fishing location, stocked with bass, walleye, catfish, and other species. It's also an excellent place for swimmers who can enjoy the beaches and families who can picnic there. Part of the main lake area has been developed, and there are boat ramps and marinas, hiking trails, campgrounds, and playgrounds; farther out from this section, the area around the lake is uncultivated and heavily timbered, with trees lining the lakeshore and extending into the water. This area of the lake is not good for boating as a result; it is also populated with a multitude of wildlife species and a popular hunting destination.Pony Express Lake Conservation Area is also a good choice if you want to get some fishing in while camping at Wallace State Park. Pony Express Lake acts as a spawning ground in the spring and is home to largemouth bass, black crappie and white crappie, catfish, and carp, among other fish species. The lake has both a paved boat ramp and a gravel boat ramp, a fishing dock, hiking trails, and an ADA accessible section. The conservation area has two additional lakes that can be enjoyed, Buffalo Bill Lake and Outpost Lake.

Exploring The Area

Camp at Wallace Campground, and you can spend some of your time experiencing the culture of the area. An excellent place to begin is Gower, a friendly community with a commercial arboretum. You can browse through their nursery for plants, gardening items like fertilizer, and garden fixtures such as bird feeders. Gower is a small community; you can take a leisurely walking tour of the town, occasionally stopping to relax at any of the cafes while enjoying the sites. If mealtime is upon you, Gower has a handful of venues to satisfy your needs, including a bakery and a restaurant that overlooks an estuary. The inn prepares meals to order using local ingredients and serves larger portions for a reasonable price.Lathrop is a good destination to do some shopping; it's a relatively small community, but one of its venues is an antique store with merchandise as diverse as its name. It's a good place to find unusual items, and the antiques on sale are good quality (better than what you might expect to find at a flea market). You can fuel up the motorhome rental in Lathrop and stock up on supplies, but you should take some time to check out the town's restaurant scene, which has Mexican and Asian outlets, cafes, and family restaurants.Whether you're looking for wilderness adventures or some small-town explorations, when you rent a camper near Wallace Campground in Cameron, you'll be close to it all.

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.
