An RV park that you can go to as a destination and not just as a stopping point on the way to Pittsburgh, Meadville KOA entices campers and adventurers of all stripes with its wide range of amenities, spacious wooded setting, and proximity to some of Pennsylvania's great outdoors like Lake Erie and Allegheny National Forest.Start with choosing a site for your Meadville camper rental after you book an RV in Crawford County and bring it to the campground. The maximum site length is 90 feet, so you can bring a big rig and park it in open, full hookup site with 50/30 amp service, or in shaded full hookup sites with 30 amp service. If you need more space to spread out, consider picking a spot with full hookups and a patio. Small trailers and campers may stay in the shade with full hookups or water/electric only service. Wi-Fi is available throughout the KOA, and pets are allowed in all sites.Restrooms are found in several buildings while the laundry room is in the main building. The swimming pool is open from late May to early September. For your camping needs, the general store sells more than just propane and firewood. The groceries are limited, but you'll find the basics and some special treats like gourmet coffee, chips, and ice cream.Motorhome camping here means you’ll have access to two lakes and several fishing ponds well stocked with largemouth bass and catfish. There’s also a spring-fed creek for wading and a trail for hiking. Let the kids burn off excess energy on the jumping pillow and in the playground. If you are the sporty type, you'll find plenty of exercise in the basketball and volleyball courts and soccer field. There's mini-golf too, and paddleboats for rent. Come during the weekends, and you'll be in the thick of campground action, whether your interest lies in vintage cars, chocolates, arts and crafts or even as quirky as duct tape and cardboard boat.

The Great Outdoors

Named after the Native American tribe that used to reside in the area, Erie National Wildlife Refuge is now home to more than 200 species of birds and several species of threatened and endangered freshwater mussels. In selected areas, visitors may fish for black crappie, bluegills, and bullheads. Beavers and river otters can also be spotted in the waters. Spy birds from the Deer Run Overlook or hit any one of the five nature trails for a more personal encounter with the refuge's avian residents.All these activities and more can be found at Presque Isle State Park, less than an hour's drive away when you park your rental motorhome at Meadville KOA. Near Erie, the park’s 11-mile sandy beach has its fair share of crowds, and thanks to its many unique habitats and ideal location, it has a staggering population of migrating birds. Get off land and into the water in a canoe, kayak, or boat and explore the park's many lagoons. The multi-purpose trail is a paved 13.5-mile trail that takes you on a loop around the park's perimeter right from the entrance.Bird song and sounds of rushing waters amidst more than half a million acres of wooded land beckon wilderness enthusiasts to the Allegheny National Forest in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. There are all types of trails here whatever your sport. Whether you’re into hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking, you’ll have hundreds of miles to get lost in. In the winter, the 114-mile Allegheny Snowmobile Loop is one of the most visited. If you feel like staying for a while, take your campervan rental to any of the many RV camping sites available so you can stay longer and explore the forest better.

Exploring the City

You can't miss the striking PennDOT Road Sign and Sculpture Garden, with a 1,200-foot long wall that follows the fencing of Crawford County's Dept. of Transportation office along Smock Highway. The mural was begun by an art professor with the help of college students and the community and made from used Pennsylvania road signs. The public art features colorful subjects depicting Meadville and surrounding communities.Another event not to miss is the Thurston Classic Hot-Air Balloon Event that’s been going on for more than three decades.

With close to a dozen gas stations and two dozen grocery and convenience stores in town, you’ll easily find what you need for camping close to the action without having to worry where to stay as the balloons fire up for the "Night Glow."Step inside the Johnson-Shaw Stereographic Museum and get a glimpse of what photography was like in Victorian times. The Keystone View Company of Meadville harnessed stereography in 1892 as a photography business that recorded important events around the world. At the museum, you'll see not only historical images but also stereoscope viewers, photographic cards, and other optical equipment.Camping with an RV in Meadville gets you close to Titusville, the site where Edwin Drake first extracted oil in 1859 on a commercial scale. The Drake Well Museum and Park sits in a 240-acre property housing outdoor exhibits that detail the journey of oil from the ground to the pipelines. Then see the full-size replica of Drake's engine house and derrick at the original site of the oil well that launched the world's modern petroleum industry.Booking a rental RV in Meadville, Pennsylvania gets you the best of both worlds.

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.
