The Great Outdoors

Camping at the Bodnarosa Motel and Campground is ideal for those wanting to visit the Lehigh Gorge State Park, which sprawls across more than 4,500 acres around the Lehigh Gorge. It encompasses a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-built dam. It is particularly renowned as a whitewater rafting destination, with a few local outfitters offering thrilling trips through the gorge. If you prefer to stretch your legs, you can follow part or all of the 26-mile-long Lehigh Gorge Trail, with this hiking and cycling route extending all the way from White Haven to Jim Thorpe. It’s renowned for its beautiful rhododendron blooms in July, as well as being a popular snowmobiling destination in the winter months.Continue driving east from the Lehigh Gorge State Park, and you’ll arrive at the Hickory Run State Park. This 15,990-acre reserve sprawls across the Pocono Mountains. It is a hub for recreational pursuits, with swimming possible in Sand Spring Lake in the summer months and ice skating in the winter. More than 40 miles of hiking trails also traverse the park, ranging from the 1.5-mile Shades of Death Trail to the longer Gould and Pine Hill Trails that are accessible to cross-country skiers in the snow season. Hunting is also permitted in some areas of the park, with white-tailed deer, black bear, and squirrels all for the taking.A 45-minute drive south of the Bodnarosa Motel and Campground is the Tuscarora State Park, which is named for the Tuscarora Indians, who once inhabited the area. It centers around the waters of Tuscarora Lake, where you can try your luck at luring bass, yellow perch, and trout, with a walking trail along the shores that accesses a series of tranquil fishing spots. Alternatively, you can follow the old logging road that winds through the park or challenge yourself on a trek to the summit of Locust Mountain for sweeping views across the surrounding region.

Exploring the City

Campsites at the Bodnarosa Motel and Campground are just five minutes’ drive from Berwick, where you’ll find supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a wide selection of eateries that include fast-food restaurants, pizzerias, and gastropubs.Berwick was founded in 1786 on the north bank of the Susquehanna River and is renowned today for its championship football team, the Bulldogs, and its iconic Christmas Boulevard light display. Don’t miss a visit to the Jackson Mansion and Carriage House, which is now home to the Berwick Historical Society. Constructed in 1877, the mansion is renowned for its Second Empire and Italianate architecture, with Doric columns and a facade covered in Vermont stone. Admire the replica of the Statue of Liberty and the World War I Memorial in front of the mansion, then step inside to explore the period-furnished rooms that include the Formal Parlor, the Billiard Room, and the former office of Clarence G. Jackson. Also listed on the National Register of Historic Places is the Berwick Armory, a National Guard complex that includes a Tudor Revival-style drill hall and an American Craftsman administrative building that was added in 1930.Continue driving west, and you’ll arrive at Bill's Old Bike Barn, a motorcycle and Americana museum that was opened by William Morris in 1999. It houses almost 200 vintage motorcycles that include early-20th-century Peugeots and Harley Davidsons, as well as a war-era Kettenkrad and a motorcycle dump truck designed by Moto Guzzi in the 1960s. In addition to its bikes, the museum also encompasses Billville, an indoor street clustered with replica shopfronts that include a barbershop, a fire station, and a tobacco shop.Whether you want to get active in the state parks of eastern Pennsylvania or delve into the local history, book a camper rental in Columbia County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
