The Great Outdoors

Cooksburg campers will no doubt want to explore the state park next door, Cook Forest State Park. This vast park contains over 8,500 acres of dense forest along the Clarion River. With so much available space in this park, it's ideal for a reflective stroll with over 45 miles of trails to explore. During your hike, be on the lookout for local wildlife, which includes black bears, great blue herons, and porcupines. The Clarion River is also excellent for fishing, and anglers can catch trout and panfish in these waters. If you packed a picnic, you could enjoy a bite to eat at one of the park's riverside picnic tables.If you're looking for a park with breathtaking views, consider stopping at Kinzua Bridge State Park. This park is unique as it features the Kinzua Viaduct, a now disused railroad bridge that stood at over 300 feet high. Partially destroyed, the bridge has now been renovated into a public walkway. Hikers can traverse part of the viaduct, which affords impressive views of the Kinzua Gorge below. Kinzua Bridge State Park is also an excellent place for spotting local wildlife thanks to its hilly terrain, and common sights at the park include porcupines, bobcats, snowshoe hares, and much more.While enjoying your campervan rental near Cooksburg, you may want to branch out and see Lake Erie. Presque Isle State Park is one of the best ways to experience the lake and consists of a 3,000-acre peninsula overlooking Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay.

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.
