The Great Outdoors

When you book an RV in Doña Ana County, you won’t believe the extraordinary and diverse landscape. Vast expanses of desert land, evergreen forests, cozy state parks, and some impressive national parks are all part of the fun when you rent an RV near Las Cruces KOA. Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park is a natural place to start, only a few minutes’ drive from where you’ll be staying in your RV rental. The park features river woodlands and restored wetlands that are teeming with wildlife. Birdwatching, hiking, biking, and picnicking are some of the ways people choose to use this exciting resource.Franklin Mountains State Park is located south of Las Cruces, but quite easy to reach with minimal effort. The park is known for being the largest state park in the nation found within city limits, as it is located within El Paso. The park has mountain peaks towering over 7,000 feet, making for great hiking and biking to scenic vantage points high above the city.If you feel like seeing some national parks, there are two stellar options to the east. One is Guadalupe Mountains National Park just over the border in Texas. This spectacular park has gypsum sand dunes, historical buildings and sites, and some of the highest mountains in all of Texas, all on 80,000 acres of land. In the same mountain range, you can visit Carlsbad Caverns National Park up in southern New Mexico, home to one of the world’s largest cave systems. This epic, subterranean wonderland features stalagmites, stalactites, and crystal geodes in a remarkable cavern. Each night at sunset, you can witness the swarm of bats that pour out of the caves for their nighttime adventures. Both parks are open to camping, so you can stay a few extra nights when you bring your campervan rental.

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.
