The Great Outdoors

The Oldman’s Creek Campground is a good base for visiting the Wharton State Forest, which encompasses almost 123,000 acres to the east of the RV campground. It protects a large tract of Atlantic coastal pines within the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve that can be explored along the forest’s network of hiking trails. Aside from walking and canoeing along the Mullica River, the Wharton State Forest is also home to the 18th-century bog iron and glass manufacturing site of Batsto Village, where you can delve into the region’s industrial past.Directly south of the Oldman’s Creek Campground is the Parvin State Park, which protects a tract of pine and swamp hardwood forest on the edge of the Pine Barrens. It served as a home for the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s before being used as a summer camp for the children of displaced Japanese Americans in 1943 and a POW camp for Germans in 1944. Highlights of the park include the 465-acre Parvin Natural Area and the swimming beach at Parvin Grove, as well as its birdwatching opportunities, with 180 different species having been recorded within the park.A 40-minute drive across the Delaware River is the Ridley Creek State Park, a 2,606-acre protected area that’s carved by the Ridley Creek. It previously served as the estate of horse breeder Walter M. Jeffords, with several of the properties and farmsteads now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Stop in at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation, a living museum where the Pratt family lived between 1720 and 1820, then explore along the 12 miles of hiking trails that traverse the park. There’s also a five-mile multi-use trail that’s accessible to cyclers and a 4.7-mile equestrian trail. If you’re an angler, you can try your luck at luring trout in the waters of Ridley Creek, which is well-stocked by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.

Exploring the City

Monroeville campers are just ten minutes’ drive from Clayton, where you can stock up on groceries at one of the local supermarkets. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a handful of pizzerias and eateries for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking.The Oldman’s Creek Campground makes a good base for visiting Philadelphia, which is renowned for its rich American Revolutionary history. Come face-to-face with the Liberty Bell and tour Independence Hall to see where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed. Art enthusiasts shouldn’t miss a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, while Rocky fans can recreate Sylvester Stallone’s triumphant run depicted in the film. Other attractions not to miss include the historic Eastern State Penitentiary and the foodie heaven that is the Reading Terminal Market.If you drive directly west across the Delaware River, you’ll arrive in Wilmington, which is clustered with historic buildings and cultural attractions. Admire the early-20th-century DuPont Building in the downtown area, then stroll through the grounds of the Hagley Museum and Library on the banks of the Brandywine Creek. It once served as the first home of the du Pont family, with an 1802 gunpowder works and a Georgian-style residence nestled amidst its Renaissance Revival-style gardens. Another highlight of Wilmington is the Old Swedes Church, which is intertwined with the history of the state’s Swedish migrant community.If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the Delaware Children’s Museum, which is packed with interactive and hands-on exhibits. Alternatively, head to the Brandywine Zoo, a small wildlife park that’s home to animals from across the globe. Aside from red pandas, capybaras, and servals, the zoo also exhibits a variety of birds that include bald eagles and Andean condors.Whether you want to explore the New Jersey Pine Barrens or get cultured in Philadelphia and Wilmington, book an RV rental in Salem County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
