The Great Outdoors

Head in any direction with your White Haven RV rental, and you will arrive at a unique natural destination in no time. One of them is just minutes away, and its name is Hickory Run State Park. The park has some extraordinary features such as the Boulder Field, where you can test your agility, and the magnificent Hawk Falls, offering refreshment to the hikers and a sight to remember. Swimmers can splash into Sand Spring Lake and top it off with catching some sun while relaxing on the shore. Anglers should try their luck at Hickory Run and Mud Run – both of these streams abound with trout. You can also visit the park in the winter and continue the outdoor experience with ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.If you follow the Lehigh River south in your campervan rental, you will arrive at another wonderful spot along its banks – Lehigh Gorge State Park. Dramatic rock outcroppings are the staple of the gorge with the river meandering at its bottom. Hiking and biking trails offer stunning vistas of the gorge, and you can explore it more closely by embarking on a whitewater rafting trip down the river. Whether you are looking for a perfect place to test your new camera or just enjoy nature in all its glory, find your way to the Buttermilk Falls, and you won’t be disappointed. Anglers who are hoping to find some peace can choose one of the numerous spots along the river.When in eastern Pennsylvania, make sure you put Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area on your itinerary – this incredible place will show you how the river has shaped the surrounding landscape and make your motorhome camping experience complete. From slowly paddling down the river with views of the tree-covered hills to hiking the famed Appalachian Trail, campers will always have something to do. Historic roads and structures found around the park further add to its beauty. The river even has three beach areas where you can swim and completely disconnect from the outside world.

Exploring the Area

When camping at Lehigh Gorge Campground, only an hour's drive separates you from amazing museums, top-notch restaurants, and great entertainment spots.If you don’t want to travel too far from the campground, travel to Allentown and enter the America On Wheels Museum, offering a different perspective on the history of the state and the entire country. This huge museum is divided into three galleries and features several dozen automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, and trucks. One of the centerpieces of the museum is the Nadig Gas-Powered Carriage, one of the first of its kind in America.Travelers who opt for spending the day in Philadelphia should visit the Independence Hall, whether they are history buffs or not. This historical building is the very place where the Declaration of Independence was signed, making it a cultural monument worth seeing at least once. Once inside, you can study historical documents, witness the printing process as it was in the 18th century, and stand in the same place as Abraham Lincoln once stood.While Philadelphia has so many magnificent attractions that it would take days to visit them all, you can complete your short visit by exploring the treasures of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. With hundreds of thousands of objects in the museum, you will find paintings, sculptures, furniture, and decorative arts. In addition to its permanent collection, the museum organizes special exhibitions throughout the year.Camping with an RV in the Poconos is always a good idea, so pack your bags, bring your friends, and enjoy the perfect getaway.

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.
