As the local lore goes, after being awarded with vast amounts of land, William Penn traveled about 30 miles north of Philadelphia, found a grove of woods by a babbling creek and declared, “This is where I’ll build my new town.” Though there is no official documentation supporting this story, Penn’s surveyor later devised a plan for a new settlement, and the document was titled, “New Township.”
A number of historical events occurred in Newtown. George Washington headquartered there on his way to the Battle of Princeton, where his men attacked the British troops in January 1777. The brownstone General Washington stayed in was, unfortunately, demolished in order to build a gas station. One of Newtown’s most famous residents was Edwards Hicks, a renowned American folk painter. One of his most famous works was The Peaceable Kingdom.
The closest large town is Doylestown, just under 15 miles to northwest.
One of the main reasons for obtaining an RV rental is to gain access to the outdoors without having to truly rough it. Tyler State Park, minutes away from Newtown, has several miles of maintained trails for hikers and bikers. Note: bicycles are permitted only on designated paved trails, and horses are permitted only on non-paved trails. There are a number of parking lots that can accommodate horse trailers, campers, and large motorhomes. Though boating in the Neshaminy Creek is possible, during the summer months and dry years the creek’s water level can get low. Anglers can alternatively fish from the banks, and catch fish like smallmouth bass, carp, black crappie, and sunfish. The locals don’t let a little cold and snow stop them from their outdoor fun. Cross-country skiing, ice-skating, and sledding are popular activities at this park.
The local community and community theater group often hold events in this park, particularly in the summer months. Park your luxury motorhome rental from Newtown here and join in the fun!
Nockamixon State Park is a large 10,000-acre park with several miles of trails winding through mature woods. Nockamixon Lake, which stretches through the entire park, offers plenty of boating and fishing adventures. Catch fish like smallmouth, largemouth, and hybrid striped bass, channel catfish, and more. Although overnight camping isn’t permitted, there are plenty of parking for trailers and motorhomes. Bring your Newton camper rental; there are private campgrounds conveniently close by.
Don’t forget to find a place to park overnight when you book a motorhome rental in Newtown. This close to Philadelphia, options are limited due to covenants in place. There is a mobile home community, Village Scene, in Hatfield, that allows short-term RV, motorhome and camper trailers stays. However, being a community, there are a number of rules guests must adhere to.
A little farther out, there are several private campgrounds near Quakertown. The Homestead Family Campgrounds may be a good candidate. Although it does offer primitive sites, it has lots with full hookups, and all guests are welcome to use the pool, laundry facilities, and bathhouse. There is a small fishing pond on site, too.
Should you need to make an unplanned stop overnight, there are a handful of Walmart stores in the area. The closest option is found in Warminster. Be sure to ask the store manager for permission beforehand.
This far away from the bright lights of Philadelphia City, it’s tempting to think there isn’t much to do. Though the town has a slower pace, there are plenty of adventures to be had in the area.
Go on a tour of the countryside in your Newtown motorhome rental. The idyllic, gently rolling farmlands will delight any budding photographers. There are hundreds of classic homes and buildings nearby, many of which dates back to the founding of this country, and many sites that have historic significance.

Upon Joseph’s death in 1754, Margaret ran the tavern till 1790, and she was arguably the first woman to run a business in the United States.
