The Great Outdoors

This region of the United States is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. With its majestic mountains, open prairies, and rich history, there's something awaiting discovery behind every bend. One place to check out when you book a Bayard campervan rental is Scotts Bluff National Monument in Gering, Nebraska. The 3,000-acre site is comprised of mixed-grass prairie, towering bluffs, rugged badlands, and riparian habitat along the North Platte River. Though every square inch of the area is stunning, the crowning jewel is Scotts Bluff, an 800-foot tall rock outcropping. The iconic rock has served as a landmark for Native Americans, immigrants headed west, and even modern-day travelers. With much to do and see in this gorgeous area, it's a must-visit when you book an RV rental near Chimney Rock Pioneer Crossing Campground.When you book an RV in Morrill County, you can also spend time at Bridgeport State Recreation Area. Encompassing about 200 acres, including 78 acres of water in five sandpit lakes, the place is popular for camping, picnicking, and boating. Fishing is also a favorite pastime at Bridgeport. Common catches include bluegill, largemouth bass, walleye, channel catfish, and yellow perch. If you're interested in spending more time in the recreation area, primitive camping is available as well.If you're willing to travel a bit, you won't regret visiting Agate Fossil Beds National Monument. About an hour's drive away in Sioux County, the fossil beds contain the most complete Miocene mammal sites in the world.

At the visitor's center, guests can see recreations of the Menoceras, a small rhinoceros, Moropus, and Dinohyus. Although the national monument is known for its Miocene mammals, the landscape tells the complete story of past animals, Native Americans, early explorers, ranchers, and those who passed through these parts when settling the American West.

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.
