The Great Outdoors

Book a rental motorhome at Honesdale / Poconos KOA and make the short drive east to the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. It hugs more than 70 miles of the Delaware River as it marks the border between Pennsylvania and New York, as well as including the remains of the Delaware and Hudson Canal. Get active while boating, fishing, and birdwatching along the river, which is the largest wintering site of bald eagles in the region. The reserve also encompasses the oldest suspension bridge in the United States, Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct, and a museum dedicated to American author Zane Grey.Camping at Honesdale / Poconos KOA is ideal for exploring Prompton State Park, which was established in 1962 around the waters of Prompton Lake. It’s managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is accessible to the general public, with boat launching facilities and picnic tables along the shores. If you want to stretch your legs, there are around 26 miles of hiking trails surrounding the lake that access its picturesque waterfalls, as well as a number of designated mountain biking trails.Around 45 minutes’ drive west of the RV campground will take you to Lackawanna State Park, which sprawls across 1,445 acres around the waters of Lake Lackawanna. It’s a popular destination for luring largemouth bass, trout, and pickerel, as well as being a hub for boating and canoeing. There are around 15 miles of multi-use trails in the park that are accessible to mountain bikers and horseback riders, with an additional three miles of hiking-only trails through the reserve’s forests and meadows.

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.
