The Great Outdoors

A motorhome vacation is not all about the campground, and you’ll find plenty to do in the great outdoors. Being so close to Lake Champlin, there are plenty of opportunities to get out on the water. The 120-mile lake separates New York state from Vermont and sits between New York's Adirondack Mountains and the Green Mountains of Vermont.With nearly 600 miles of shoreline, Lake Champlin offers excellent fishing along its banks, plus many boat ramps and marinas to get on the water. Although very well known for its bass fishing, where it regularly appears in the list of top 100 bass lakes, you can also fish for Atlantic salmon, lake trout, brown trout, muskellunge, and many more species of game fish. It really is an anglers paradise.Lake Champlain is the perfect place to enjoy water sports, whether you prefer powerboats, sailing, or canoeing. The lake is lined on both sides by beautiful mountains and cliff edges, plus you have numerous islands and inlets to explore. If you enjoy water skiing, or maybe have never tried, there’s plenty of room here, and the many marinas along the shoreline can rent you the equipment. What are you waiting for?In the surrounding mountains are hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, while in the winter, ice fishing and cross-country skiing are the sports of choice. An RV camping vacation at Twin Ells Campsite puts you in the perfect spot for outdoor adventure.A few miles south of the campsite is Plattsburgh, on the banks of Lake Champlain. To the north of the city is the Plattsburgh City Beach, perfect for an afternoon relaxing in the sun and alongside is Cumberland State Park. Along with miles of sandy beach, there are picnic areas, with grills, playgrounds, and playing fields.

Exploring the Area

If all the fresh air and adventure has worn you out, then slow down and explore some of the history of the area. The small town of West Chazy is a few miles to the north, where you’ll find a gas station, a grocery store, and a small number of restaurants, ideal for restocking your rental RV. While in the town, take a break at the small George E Deno Memorial Park.There are plenty of museums to explore here, including the Clinton Historical Museum that charts the county’s growth from the early settlers to the modern-day. For something a little more high octane, try the Plattsburgh Airforce Base museum. Located on part of the old airbase, that was open from 1954 until 1995, you can see a range of old aircraft, and FB-111A “Cardboard Trainer,” and explore some of the old base. It’ll bring back memories for any veterans in your group.To the north is Rouses Point, just a mile from the Canadian border where you can explore Fort Montgomery. The original octagonal fort was built in 1816, and became known as Fort Blunder when it was discovered it had been built on the Canadian side of the border by mistake! The fort you can see now was built later using materials from the original construction.

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.
