The Great Outdoors

Camping at the Red Oak Campground is a good base for visiting the Allegheny National Forest, which sprawls across more than 500,000 acres in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It's a popular recreational hub for fishing, boating, and hiking, as well as mountain biking and ATV driving on the designated trails. On the eastern edge of the Allegheny National Forest is the Kinzua Bridge State Park, where you can get a bird’s eye view of the Kinzua Gorge through the glass-bottomed Skywalk.The Allegheny National Forest connects to the Allegany State Park along Pennsylvania’s border with New York and has been nicknamed "the wilderness playground of Western New York.” It’s renowned for its forested valleys, fall color, and abundant wildlife, which can be explored along the park’s hiking trails or during naturalist-led walks. Visit the natural history museum within the Tudor-style Administration Building and soak up the views from the Stone Tower, then relax along the shores of Red House Lake. If you’re visiting during the winter months, head to the Art Roscoe Ski Touring Area, where you’ll find some of the best-groomed cross-country skiing trails in the Northeast.Just across the Allegheny River lies the Bucktooth State Forest, which is traversed by the North Country Scenic Trail. Stretch your legs on a hike to the rocky outcrop known as the Cat Rocks or try your luck fishing in the West Branch of the Bucktooth Run. Hunting is also permitted in some areas of the state forest, while both snowshoeing and skiing are both possible during the winter months.

Exploring the City

Russell campers are 25 minutes' drive from Warren, where you'll find supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies and gas stations if you need to fill up your RV rental. There are also plenty of eateries here if you don’t feel like cooking, ranging from fast-food restaurants to tap houses and fine-dining options.While you’re in Warren, don’t miss a visit to the A.J. Hazeltine House, a historic residence that now operates as the Honorable Charles Warren Stone Museum. It was constructed in the early 20th century in a Jacobean style, with wide terraces and marble lintels on its brick exterior. The museum is named for a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives who also served as a superintendent of schools in Warren. It’s now owned and operated by the Warren County Historical Society, with local artifacts and genealogical resources also exhibited in a nearby Victorian mansion.Campsites at the Red Oak Campground are just 35 minutes’ drive from Salamanca, a historic city in New York State that was named after a Spanish nobleman, José de Salamanca. It’s home to the Salamanca Rail Museum, which occupies a restored passenger depot from the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway that dates to 1912. Learn about the three railroads that once served the region - the Erie, the Baltimore and Ohio, and the Pennsylvania Railroads - as you explore the period-furnished ticket office and baggage room, with old artifacts and black and white photographs on display.Salamanca is also home to the Seneca Iroquois National Museum (also known as the Onöhsagwë:de’ Cultural Center), where the region’s rich indigenous culture is exhibited. Discover the cultural heritage of the Seneca people while browsing the traditional handicrafts and artworks on display, with this Native American tribe known as “The Keeper of the Western Door” within the Iroquois Confederacy. Cultural presentations and concerts are regularly held at the center, together with children’s plays.Whether you want to explore the Allegheny Highlands ecoregion or discover its Native American history, book an RV rental in Warren County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
