Camping with an RV

The Great Outdoors

Miles and miles of trails weave through the many state forests that surround Juniata County. If hiking on a wild footpath is high on your wish list, a day out in the woods on the Mid-State Trail rewards the intrepid backpacker. The trail skirts creeks and rivers and leads past lakes and waterfalls. Hike the tranquil trail, and sweeping views await once you make it to rocky ridgelines. While the path is not far from civilization (you can access it from Armagh Township), it is remote and little-used, with a high chance of encountering more bears than people.Anglers looking for a quest should set their sights on the Juniata River flowing immediately west of Mifflintown. Muskies, walleyes, and catfish bite in these waters, but the river's mostly rocky riverbed and stretches of shallow riffles isolated by long pools make an especially ideal habitat for smallmouth bass. The latter is exceptionally abundant on the upper reaches of Juniata River flowing through Huntington County, within 90 minutes' drive when you park your rental motorhome at Buttonwood Campground.On the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail, follow in the footsteps of the American Indians and 17th-century Scotch-Irish settlers as you explore this 13-mile pathway that traces the former Cumberland Valley Railroad. Embark on a scenic drive to access the trail at Newville, and before long, you'll be heading through an idyllic valley surrounded by the Blue and South Mountains in south-central Pennsylvania. Expect to be greeted by vast views of farms and pastureland once you enter the trail at Newville, then round out the drive through the wooded trail as you approach Shippensburg. Amish residents travel these roads via horse and buggy, so this drive is a great way to get a glimpse into their way of life.Ambitious hikers or cyclists in search of grander views can visit the 60-mile Pine Creek Rail Trail that runs at the bottom of Pine Creek Gorge from Wellsboro Junction to Jersey Shore (do the reverse for closer access to the trailhead). From Jersey Shore, it'll require a few hours of pedaling to reach the trail at Darling Run, where the gorge, nicknamed "Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon," is at its most scenic. Don't be surprised to come across bear, porcupine and raccoons as you explore the trail.

Exploring the Area

Book a campsite at Buttonwood Campground to discover the historical riches of Mifflintown stretching from as far back as the late 1700s. One of the earliest structures in town is the Tuscarora Academy, built in 1816 as the site of the first secondary school in Juniata County. Now it houses a museum illustrating the county's past, including boarding rooms for both male and female students, a horse cart, an old-time doctor's office, and an old post office. If you're lucky, you may even catch Native American artifacts on display in summer.Then there are the covered bridges of Juniata County, built from as early as the mid-19th century to the turn of the 20th century. Most are under private ownership, but you still can pass through the Beaver Covered Bridge that remains part of the state highway system. You can also walk to the Pomeroy/Academia Covered Bridge, the longest of its kind in Pennsylvania, owned by the Juniata County Historical Society. Fast forward to faster times, the nearby Port Royal Speedway hosts a weekly schedule of local sprint and stock car races, including national touring races sanctioned by the All-Star Circuit of Champions.Those who don't mind a short drive into the mountains should take their Mifflintown RV rental to the Greenwood Furnace State Park, where you'll find the remains of a 19th-century iron-making community. Imagine what it was like back in the 1830s when the steam engines hissed, and the furnaces cast a red glow, letting the residents walk around in the dark without lanterns.For a taste of local tradition, rent a camper near Buttonwood Campground and visit on Michaelmas Day in late September, when both Juniata and Mifflin counties continue an early settler's tradition. Restaurants in two counties make variations of a traditional goose dinner while in some towns, carriage rides through Amish communities take place.Juniata County has plenty to offer the adventurous camper. With so many trails close by, a town steeped in history, and welcoming festivals celebrating local culture, it’s time for you to book a rental RV in Mifflintown, Pennsylvania, and start making memories.

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.
