Perhaps you'd like to relax and refresh in the woods, but also would like to be close enough to big cities? Then search for an RV in Lehigh County and take that campervan rental to Allentown KOA to enjoy the best of both worlds. There's a hiking trail right in the campground, and if you're up to the challenge, a section of the Appalachian Trail nearby. You'll be surrounded by lush greenery and still be within less than two hours' drive of Philadelphia and New York City.Camping with an RV at Allentown KOA lets you escape into a soothing world of leafy, family-friendly campsites with a bubbling creek running the entire length of the campground. There are plenty of activities here to keep you occupied for days, whatever your interest. There's a nine-hole mini-golf course, a volleyball court, and a half basketball court to start with. Children will love the two large playgrounds, and your pets can roam freely in the fenced play area. Hayrides and arts and crafts happen on weekends, which is also when the pool (late May to early September) is heated for a relaxing dip. If nothing catches your fancy, play arcade games, rent a bike to explore the 40-acre RV park, or pan for gemstones if you’d like to get truly hands-on.With sites accommodating RVs up to 80 feet in length, the campground has plenty of space for big rigs. Desirable site amenities include full hookups with 50/30 amp service and water/electric sites with 50/30/20 amp service. Even in this secluded getaway, you'll still be able to stay in the loop with Wi-Fi and cable TV. You'll also find RV and camping supplies, food, and toys at the large general store.

The Great Outdoors

When you rent a camper near Allentown KOA, you’re less than an hour’s drive from Crystal Cave near Kutztown in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Being a "show cave," it's a family-friendly curiosity filled with a wealth of crystalline formations. Join a one-hour guided tour of the caves to learn more of its history and geology.Allentown campers may also want to plan a day trip to the Hawk Mountain Bird Sanctuary during the spring migration (April 1 to May 15) when the number of migrating raptors soars and your chances of seeing several species of hawks, falcons, and eagles increase. Fall migration peaks in September-October. Any other time of the year, come and explore the trails ranging in grade from wheel-chair accessible (Silhouette Trail) to popular (Lookout Trail) to challenging (Escarpment Trail, which requires scrambling).Boaters and anglers may want to visit the 5,000-acre rolling landscape of Nockamixon State Park. Several creeks feed the lake of the same name which yields abundant walleye, muskellunge, and pickerel. The lake is also a rest stop of migrating waterfowl so you'll have good chances of spotting grebes, swans and loons, and some 250 species of birds. Give your legs a good workout on the paved bike trail as you listen to warblers, orioles, and vireos, or take an invigorating hike on several difficult trails like the Sterner Mill Hiking Area, the High Bridge Trail, and the Old Mill Trail. Some parts of the park are ADA-accessible.

Exploring the City

Discover the Amish countryside at the speed of the 19th century on a buggy ride in Bird in Hand about 90 minutes' drive away when camping at Allentown KOA. Join one of their town or farm tours with an Amish or Mennonite driver to learn more about their customs and see their working farms. Don't forget to grab a bite to eat at one of the farm stands selling homemade cookies, pretzels, and other treats.Your journey back in time continues aboard the vintage WK & S Steam Train leaving nearby Kempton. Enjoy a 40-minute round trip ride through lush forests and farmland as the train follows the Ontelaunee Creek during its run. Or sign up for a themed ride where you can enjoy wine and cheese or beer and BBQ.Allentown KOA camping gets you close to the city’s collection of museums, art galleries, and educational centers that will make you wish you have enough time to experience them all. Bring science-minded kids to the Da Vinci Science Center for a hands-on experience with robotics, animation, and even nanotechnology. Truck enthusiasts would want to step inside America on Wheels Museum and Mack Trucks Historical Museum for a good look at an assortment of over-the-road transportation, including the gas-operated, open-air Mack buses that used to carry tourists in other cities outside of the state.Those who wish to learn about Native American tribes that once occupied this part of Pennsylvania may want to browse the displays of the Museum of Indian Culture to get to know the Lenape Indians. Rounding out Allentown's city attractions, the Allentown Art Museum and the Baum School of Art are fantastic places to admire American art, Renaissance paintings, and contemporary multi-media works of local and regional artists.Allentown has so much to offer that it’s a destination in its own right. Of course, there’s plenty more to see when you look beyond, but the rubber meets the road right here. So don’t delay anymore. Find the best camper rental in Allentown, Pennsylvania today and get rolling.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
