Getting Outdoors

Around Beechnut Family Campground is a rock climber’s heaven, there are several state parks, state forests, and county parks at which boulders and rock slabs pose interesting climbing challenges. Pilot Mountain State Park features a unique mountain that resembles a funnel, with a cylindrical knob rising abruptly from the top, exposing granite cliff walls. A favorite for many climbers, hikers and outdoorsmen can enjoy the sight of climbers clad in bright colors painstakingly inch their way up the sheer wall. Those who successfully reach the top are rewarded with a sweeping view of the neighboring mountains.There are several miles of multi-use trails shared with horseback riders. The trails vary in difficulty and length, and all have different features for outdoor adventurers to enjoy. One follows the Yadkin River as it descends deeper and deeper into a gorge. Another emerges into a fresh, open meadow where wildflowers bloom in abundance.Explore 14,000 acres at Stone Mountain State Park. Stone Mountain is best known for its rock formation that was created by an ancient volcano a millennia ago. The formation resembles a striated bowling ball, half-buried into the earth. Rock climbing is an activity enjoyed by many; however, due to the fragile rock formation, all climbers must obtain permits. It’s also considered a more challenging climb, and beginners are generally not advised to tackle this area without an expert guiding them.In addition to over 20 miles of multi-use trails, Stone Mountain State Park also is known for its excellent trout-fishing streams. Anglers can expect to catch rainbow and brown trout, and fishermen have been known to bring home trophy-sized catches, too. Wildlife teems in these woods, and sharp-eyed hikers may spot anything from white-tailed deer to bobcats and foxes to raccoons.

Exploring the Area

Hop into a rental motorhome and explore the small mountain towns of North Carolina and Virginia, too. Cana, VA, is a one-street town that boasts several quirky shops, restaurants, and antique stores. Many buildings in the town are historic, dating back to the mid-1800s. Mountain Man Orchards and Markets is a top-notch place at which customers can try various produce, honey, and jam sourced from local farms and wineries.Several wineries dot the northern part of North Carolina, nestled in valleys in between mountain ridges. Close to the town of Pilot Mountain, is an award-winning winery, JOLO Winery, and Vineyard. JOLO Winery boasts a stellar view of Pilot Mountain and 80 acres of rolling hills covered by grapevines. Its tasting room is housed in an old-fashioned rustic farmhouse with stone walls and clapboards.Are you seeking a modern town with a wide variety of shopping and dining choices? Roll on down in an Airstream rental to Winston-Salem. Of all cities and towns in North Carolina, Winston-Salem has one of the highest numbers of small businesses. Consumers are sure to find everything they need in this town, and supporting small businesses is always good. The town also has several museums, art galleries, theaters, and a minor-league ballpark.As the sun dips down beyond the horizon, kick up your heels outside a camper rental, and look to the sky. Far from the bright city lights, the night sky is especially clear, and it’s easy to discern various celestial bodies with the naked eye.

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.
