The Great Outdoors

As soon as you zone in on one of the RV rentals in Clinton County, set out to explore the surrounding area. The first stop is minutes away – Ausable Chasm, aka the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks. The Ausable River flows through picturesque rock walls, forming an incredible sight. Climbers of all levels can try climbing them and get a unique perspective on the river below. Kayaking and tubing are also great ways to explore this wonder of nature, and if you want to stay on dry land, you can go hiking on one of the trails. With places like Rainbow Falls, Elephant’s Head, and Column Rock, you are definitely in for an unforgettable adventure.The shores of Lake Champlain are teeming with great spots for camping with an RV and Cumberland Bay State Park is one of them. If water makes you feel like you’re in your element, you will be thrilled to find that you can swim, fish, and kayak as soon as you step out of your Keeseville camper rental. After soaking up some sun at the large sandy beach, find one of the picnic spots with tables and grills and enjoy a day out with your friends and family. Travelers who stop by the park during the winter can take part in ice fishing and cross-country skiing.While camping at Ausable Chasm Campground, make sure to visit one of the national forests of the region. It takes a few hours to reach White Mountain National Forest and park your rental RV at one of its most scenic parts – Franconia Notch State Park. Feast your eyes on the beauty of Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges while still on the road meandering between them or park your campervan rental and enter the breathtaking Flume Gorge, a world of rugged rocks and splashing waterfalls. Visitors looking for stunning vistas of the park shouldn’t miss out on a ride on the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway. Echo Lake is there for adventurers who want to go for a swim, while hikers can stretch their legs on the Appalachian Trail.

Exploring the Area

Make your camping trip even more interesting by adding some human-made attractions to your list of places to visit.The North Star Underground Railroad Museum is within walking distance of the campground, dedicated to the interesting history of the Champlain Line of the Underground Railroad. Innovative displays tell the stories of people escaping slavery and their journey towards Canada. The museum also shows how the struggle against slavery influenced the area and the division it brought to the local churches.If you decide to spend the day in Montreal, make sure to discover the wonderful world of flora waiting in the Montreal Botanical Garden. It is divided into several gardens with plants from all around the world, such as the Japanese Garden or the Alpine Garden. Turtles and blue herons are some of the animals that have found a home in this green oasis.For art lovers visiting Montreal, spending some time at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is a must. With tens of thousands of works, it is one of the largest art museums in North America. It is divided into five pavilions and features both local and international works of art. The oldest art library in Canada is also located at the museum. In addition to permanent exhibitions, there are always new ones coming from around the world, making every visit a unique experience.When you rent a camper near Ausable Chasm Campground, you will also find great breweries, cafes, and restaurants that will complete your trip to the northeast of the Empire State.

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.
