The Great Outdoors

Those looking for a local hideaway should visit the nearby Tiadaghton State Forest near Montgomery. Just north of the campsites at Knoebels Campground, Tiadaghton has unique forested plateaus that are segmented by rushing mountain springs filled with cold meltwater. Once you get to this unique landscape, the recreational opportunities seem endless. A 42-mile trail winds through the park, and experienced paddlers can head down the Class II and Class III sections of Pine Creek and enjoy the rapids. There is a calmer Class I section ideal for less experienced paddlers.Also just north of Knoebels is Ricketts Glen State Park in Benton. Often considered to be one of the most scenic parks in Pennsylvania’s State Park system, Ricketts Glen is a nature lover’s dream. The crowning jewel of the park is the Glens Natural Area, which has been labeled as a National Natural Landmark. The Falls Trail System passes 22 named waterfalls and countless unnamed waterfalls. Hike the trail and watch the water tumble over the ancient rock faces jutting out through the old-growth forests. The highest waterfall in the park, Ganoga Falls, reaches a towering 94 feet, making it one of the tallest waterfalls in Pennsylvania.For a great day trip in the Elysburg motorhome rental, head to Bald Eagle State Park near Howard. Protected and preserved to showcase the stunning 1,700-acre lake, there are a variety of habitats that are sustained from the creeks and springs that feed into this stunning lake. You can explore the forests, go hiking along the creeks, or enjoy the various wetlands that have popped up throughout the park. Due to its water-centric nature, Bald Eagle State Park is an ideal destination for those looking for a swimming beach, or visitors can try their luck with local fishing. There is no shortage of water recreational opportunities to fill your summer days. However, if you’re traveling during the winter, the state park becomes a winter wonderland. You can ice skate on the lake or explore the trails with cross-country skis or snowshoes.

Explore the Area

Golf lovers can hit the links at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Course. This 18-hole golf course is just a short drive away from Knoebels Amusement Park and Campground. If you’re an experienced golfer, you can book a tee time in advance and enjoy some time in the mild Pennsylvania climate. If you’re new to golf, you can register for a class or workshop and pick up some new skills.Lovers of history can learn all about Pennsylvania’s rich mining history at the Mining Museum. Situated within the grounds of Knoebel’s Amusement Park, this museum showcases the history of the area, the history of mining, and has records of first-hand accounts of life in the mines. You can also learn a little bit more about the era with hands-on presentations using recreations of tools.If you didn’t get to see any wildlife during your adventures through the wilds of Pennsylvania, then head to the deer farm near Catawissa. Here, you can jump aboard a hayride tour and see some of the red deer that call the farm home. These deer are very accustomed to human visitors and may even come up to the haywagon for a closer look.At the end of a long, fun-filled day, finish the night with a local treat: Old-Forge Style Pizza. This thick pizza is served square style, in a shirt box since the pizza itself predates the pizza box. You can choose between red, a hearty tomato sauce with some cheese, or white, a cheesy sauce-free pizza with herbs and pepper.

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.
