Thinking of a beach vacation with an RV rental, perhaps along the Florida Keys or North Carolina’s Outer Banks? Probably the last place you’d imagine fun in the sun is the sandy coast of New Hampshire – a state more famous for its frigid winters and high peaks than for carefree summer afternoons by the ocean. However, the New Hampshire coast is the place to be during the summer, cracking open some lobsters and enjoying a tasty microbrew on the Hampton Beach boardwalk. You’ll need a place to stay during this adventure, and one of the best places for camping with an RV in the Seacoast Region is Tidewater Campground.When you get an RV rental near Tidewater Campground, you’ll have access to full hookups (20, 30, or 50 amp electrical capacity), along with restrooms, picnic tables, and fire rings. This RV campground has great recreational facilities too, like a children’s playground, a swimming pool, and horseshoe pits. But for most visitors booking RV rentals in Rockingham County, it’s the nearby beach that's the main attraction. Tidewater is one of the closest campgrounds to Hampton Beach and just ten minutes' drive to the west of New Hampshire’s only boardwalk.While Route 1A along the coast is packed during peak tourist season, Tidewater Campground is set back from all that commotion, and Interstate 95 is only minutes away. So whether you’re coming from northern Massachusetts, southern Maine, or the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, you’ll always have easy access to this RV park.

If you’re looking to get outdoors when you camp in an RV near Hampton Beach, the most obvious choice is the beach itself. The sand can get a bit congested in town, but go a couple of miles up the coast and you’ll have plenty of room to spread out your towel.If working on your tan isn’t enough excitement, try parasailing behind a speedboat off Hampton Beach. You can soar 500 or even 1,000 feet above the coastline; just be sure to bring your camera for some sweet aerial shots. There’s also the option of renting a kayak in Portsmouth or Newburyport and paddling up and down the shore. The waves can get pretty big though, so inexperienced paddlers should use caution and avoid days when the swells are too high.Despite being a mere 13 miles long, New Hampshire’s Seacoast is brimming with excellent parks that are perfect for picnics with the family. Odiorne Point State Park near Portsmouth is one of the largest green spaces in the area and has some of the best facilities too, including miles of trails paralleling the scenic shoreline, boat ramps for launching kayaks, and even a small science center filled with native fish and marine mammals.
The resort town of Hampton Beach will be your closest option for urban amenities when you rent a camper near Tidewater Campground. During the summer, it’s a happening mile-and-a-half-long stretch of sand, filled with seafood restaurants, beach bars, souvenir shops, and stands selling funnel cakes (just called a fried dough in New England). Most everyone comes here to enjoy the soft sand, but there’s a nice oceanarium geared towards younger kids, which teaches them about the wildlife native to New Hampshire’s Seacoast. There’s also a small casino at the south end of the beach if you’re looking to do some gambling during your motorhome rental vacation.While Hampton Beach has all the tourist amenities you could need, the much larger towns of Portsmouth, NH and Newburyport, MA are only a 20-minute drive away. Both have excellent restaurants, a microbrewery or two, and good shopping should you need to pick up any supplies.If you’re a fan of naval history, Portsmouth is full of it. The USS Albacore Museum (a submarine from the 1950s that you can crawl inside to explore) and the defunct Portsmouth Naval Prison (definitely not open for exploration) are both within its borders. From Portsmouth, you can also enjoy a day trip out to the Isle of Shoals, about six miles from the coast. There you can marvel at the opulent Oceanic Hotel, take pictures of the island’s signature lighthouse, and enjoy a classic Maine lobster roll in the coastal town of Rye.Just over the Maine border is the town of Kittery, which has one of the most extensive outlet malls in all of New England. You’ll find rock bottom deals on everything from outdoor gear to candles to athletic wear. When you’ve tired yourself out, don’t forget to stop by the local bakery, which serves up some of the best bread and cookies in New England.
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.
