Discover Lincolnton


Lincolnton bills itself as "near the city, near the mountains, near perfect”. Indeed, Lincolnton is less than 40 miles northwest of Charlotte, one of North Carolina's major cities; 27 miles east of the South Mountains State Park; and 20 miles west of Lake Norman. Established in 1785, Lincolnton was a planned county seat of Lincoln County from the very beginning, resulting to the grid of streets that divide this small city into quadrants seen today. The intersection of the north-south US Route 321 and the east-west Highway 27 is just a couple of miles west of town, making it easy for those with an RV rental in Lincolnton to explore the Blue Ridge and Appalachian country.


Venture Into Blue Ridge Territory


US Route 321 cuts through Lincoln County, and if you follow it north for 70 miles and then swing west along US Route 221, you'll reach the Grandfather Mountain State Park where rocky cliffs and miles of challenging hiking trails await. As for Highway 27, it winds northwest to South Mountains State Park, about 40 minutes away by Lincolnton motorhome rental. One of the most rugged areas in North Carolina, the park contains more than 40 miles of trails for mountain bikers, equestrians and hikers.  For scenic views, take the 2.7-mile hike to the observation deck of High Shoals Falls, or the four-mile steep, wooded Chestnut Knob Trail overlooking the falls. There is also a white-knuckle 17-mile loop MTB trail and several miles of stream stocked with wild trout.


At Hickory, about 20 miles up US-321, turn west and follow Interstate 40 for about 100 miles to reach the densely forested slopes and mile-high peaks of Pisgah National Forest. At 500,000 acres, the forest contains dozens of biking, equestrian and day hiking trails. Its cascading waterfalls also provide the perfect setting for several water-based adventures like tubing, non-motorized boating, swimming, and river, stream and lake fishing.


Your outdoor options are just beginning. Take your Lincolnton camper rental to Asheville, then follow I-26 which will take you north to Cherokee National Forest. Heading west, Interstate 40 and the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway will take you to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Nantahala National Forest, respectively. Asheville is also one of the major entrances to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a scenic All-American road that runs all the way northeast to the Shenandoah National Park 300 miles away.


Campgrounds for Your RV


The South Mountains State Park offers campsites with electric hookups for RVs, drinking water, hot showers, bath house and toilets (no dump station, however). Picnic tables, fireplace, fire ring with grill and firewood are all available onsite. Or, find a lakeside campground at Lake Norman to park the Lincolnton travel trailer rental.


Whether you’re entering or leaving Asheville, you’ll run into several Walmart stores and gas stations off I-26 and I-40.  Some stores are open 24/7 and within 20 to 30 miles of national parks and forests.


At Pisgah National Forest, you should have no trouble finding a campsite for the Lincolnton RV rental at Black Mountain Campground (electric hookups and hot showers), Carolina Hemlocks Recreation Area (short drive from Blue Ridge Parkway), Boone Fork Campground, Curtis Creek Campground (drinking water and restrooms), and Mortimer Campground.


Going south to Nantahala, you'll have four options: Cullasaja Gorge, Standing Indian Campground (easy access to Appalachian Trail and dump station within a mile), Mountain Waters Scenic Byway, and Van Hook Glade Campground (drinking water, showers and flush toilets). All other sites are mostly primitive with no electricity, running water, toilets or hookup facilities for the Lincolnton travel trailer rental.


Lincolnton’s Revolutionary and Civil War Past


The site of the 1780 Battle of Ramsour's Mill was to become the future site of Lincolnton. This battle pitted neighbors against neighbors as the Patriots militia fought British loyalists. The Patriots' victory on June 20 is commemorated annually with reenactments, period music and cooking, battle site tours, and firearms demonstrations.


A few decades after this pivotal event, buildings were erected on the battle site that range in style from Federal and Greek Revival to Colonial Revival. Wander around the West Main Street Historic District to see buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the 1819 Michal-Butt-Brown-Pressly House.


Lincolnton’s connections to the Civil War can be experienced at the Pleasant Retreat Academy or the Confederate Memorial Hall.


As you stroll around downtown Lincolnton, follow the Appalachian Mural Trail. Lincolnton especially takes pride in its 1938 "Threshing Grain" mural found in the city post office. On West Water Street, you will see the "Iron Furnace" mural painted on the side of the Lincoln Times-News building while the "Rail Trail Train" is painted on the west side of the Anderson Building.


Of course, hiking the real Appalachian Trail or exploring the Blue Ridge country is a different challenge altogether. But with advance planning, you’ll have time to search for an RV in Lincolnton, NC and create a “near perfect” itinerary.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership.
