The Great Outdoors

At Hocking Hills State Park, hikers can trek the park's seven major hiking areas. If you want to see some of the most sought-after destinations in the park, take your Lancaster camper rental to the park and head to the Old Man's Cave area where the six-mile Grandma Gatewood Trail starts. The trail then takes you to the Cedar Falls and the Ash Cave hiking areas that are deservedly popular among visitors. Photographers may want to linger at the Devils Bathtub for a good shot of the swirling and cascading waters of the captivating tiered waterfall.Those who like to explore the outdoors on two wheels should rent a camper near Lakeview Park Campground and hit the enthralling mountain bike trails of Lake Hope State Park. Beginners may want to pedal along the lakeside scenery of the Hope Furnace Trail Loop (4.5-6.5 miles) as there’s little elevation gain along the route. On the other hand, ridge riding awaits cyclists on the ten-mile Copperhead Loop. Adrenaline-seekers looking for white-knuckle riding may want to try the tight turns, switchbacks, and steep climbs and descents at the five-mile Sidewinder Loop. For a sampling of segments of Copperhead, Sidewinder, and Hope Furnace trails, the 16-mile Big Loop is highly recommended.For a trip back in time when horses ruled the roads, Fairfield County’s original covered bridges take you there with a little imagination needed. At least a handful of these historic structures are in and around Lancaster. The Rock Mill Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The John Bright #2 Bridge is the one you pass through on the road to the Lancaster Festival concerts at Ohio University, and the McCleery Bridge is the one to take if you're exploring Lancaster's bike paths.

Exploring the Area

Lancaster is the boyhood home of Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman and his brother, Senator John Sherman.

Designate a driver and stop at a handful of craft breweries and taprooms along the route and collect your stamps in exchange for a glass pint at the end of the tour. You need not travel far, though, as there are taprooms right in Lancaster where you can sample light and mildly hoppy ales.Who says you can’t enjoy hiking, history, and hops in one go?

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.
