The Great Outdoors

Directly south of the Timashamie Family Campground is the Zepernick Wildlife Area, which encompasses 518 acres along a glaciated plateau. It’s home to a 39-acre lake and two ponds that are well stocked with largemouth bass and several panfish species, with four earthen fishing piers along the shore to facilitate activities. Hunting is also permitted in the wildlife area, with rabbits, pheasants, and raccoons all inhabiting the region.Campsites at the Timashamie Family Campground are also a good base for exploring the Guilford Lake State Park, which is named for a canal engineer, Edward H. Gill. The lake was constructed in 1834 as a feed reservoir for the Sandy and Beaver Canal, with boaters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts visiting today. The surrounding park provides habitat for a variety of native wildlife species, not to mention migrating birdlife.Continue driving southeast, and you’ll arrive at the Beaver Creek State Park, which sprawls across 2,722 acres on the banks of Little Beaver Creek near East Liverpool. Historic remnants of the Sandy and Beaver Canal are scattered throughout the park. Archaeological digs have uncovered evidence of human habitation dating to at least 10,000 years ago. After being inhabited by various Native American tribes, the first permanent settlers arrived in 1790, and the historic Gaston’s Mill still stands today. It’s now restored and open to the public, with demonstration days and antique milling equipment on display. Stop in at the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center, where live animals and natural history dioramas are exhibited, then explore the recreated log home, church, and schoolhouse of the Pioneer Village. The park is also a popular hiking destination, with sightings of white-tailed deer, raccoons, and eastern gray squirrels common.

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.
