Discover Columbia, SC

Anyone traveling to Columbia, SC, should expect a vacation like no other. This smaller sized city, the capital and second largest in South Carolina, is both historic and modern, traditional and multicultural, and, most importantly, friendly.

When you book an RV in Columbia, you’ll be opening your front door to be greeted by an extensive array of forests, lakes and rivers. Nestled between Georgia (to the west) and North Carolina (to the north and east), Columbia is only minutes away from the nearby towns of Lexington and Winnsboro, and not more than two hours from Charleston, SC, on the coast.

The local transit system, CMRTA, more commonly known by locals as “The Comet”, makes transportation without your RV Rental in Columbia a snap. Just set yourself up at one of the local RV Parks or campsites, and you are ready to go.

The most difficult decision you will face may not be what to do, but what not to do. Columbia, SC, is an active and dynamic city, with festivals and events happening every month, all year long. When the excitement becomes too much, exploring the area’s natural settings in your luxury RV rental near Columbia is the perfect antidote to all that fun.

The Great Outdoors

Starting at the north end of the Congaree River, and continuing north along the Broad River, there are three hiking trails located right in the city. The Columbia Canal Path follows the Broad River north, from the downtown core to Riverview Terrace. It is an easy hike, with scenic views of the river and the city. The Three Rivers Greenway Trail starts across the water, from Meeting St (just before the bridge) and continues south to River Bluff Estates. This is also an easy, level trail, for those wanting scenery with light exercise.

Guignard Clay Quarry Loop Trail is farther south yet, starting on Old State Road, near Cayce Riverwalk. This is a shorter trail but moderate in difficulty, for those hoping to stretch their legs while they are out from behind the steering wheel. Saluda Shoals Trail, Lake Murray Trail and Fourteen Mile Creek Trail are to the west, near Lake Murray; Gibsons Park Pond Loop is near Lexington, just south of Murray Lake. All of these are easy, level trails and you can drive your Columbia RV rental directly to Murray Lake, if you wish, to finish a nice relaxing hike with lunch at the lake.

For those looking for something more relaxing, Saluda Shoals Park has a nature center, a water park for young children and also rents kayaks by the hour. To the east of Columbia, Sesquicentennial Park offers kayak and canoe rentals, as well as a nature trail and mountain bike loop through its serene forest setting.

RV Parks

About halfway between Columbia and Lexington, you can park your Columbia motorhome rental in a tree-enclosed setting at Barnyard RV Park; if you're lucky enough to be there on a weekend, they host a flea market full of interesting items.

Broad River Campground, only 20 minutes from Columbia, is located in Winnsboro; Edmund RV Park and Magnolia Campground Inc. offer RV rental camping south of Columbia but still close enough to the city to commute back and forth.

Those who aren't interested in commuting by public transport can park their rental RV in  Columbia at one of three Walmart stores located within the city and shop for groceries and other necessary items there.

Exploring The City

Columbia has not one but two golf courses, where you can pretend you are on a PGA tour. Into more cerebral activities? Columbia has impressive festivals and events year round, so there is no chance of arriving here and not having something to occupy your interests.

In April, there is the Artista Vista, where art galleries keep their doors open much later into the evening and even display some of their works on the sidewalk outside. April is also the time of year for the Columbia International Festival, a celebration of all things multicultural. Food and song is everywhere, and local groups even perform ethnic dances for the partygoers; play your cards right and you might even be invited to join in.

Those who are interested in sampling more traditional southern food should check out the Indie Grits festival, a celebration of movies catered by food trucks that will appear out of nowhere, or the Rosewood Crawfish Festival, which supplies event goers with music and food (you guessed it, Crawfish). The Indie Grits Festival is in April, the Rosewood Crawfish Festival slightly later in May.

Columbia hosts the Deckle Edge Literary Festival in February. It also hosts not one but two marathons, for those who enjoy watching others work up a good sweat. The Run Hard Columbia Marathon happens in March, and the Governor's Cup 5K and half marathon takes place in May. Who knows, you might even want to park the camper rental in Columbia and join in the 5K run and take home a t-shirt to show to family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

How many people can sleep in an RV?

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!

Why choose Outdoorsy vs Craigslist or Airbnb?

Security, for one. Outdoorsy helps protect RV owners and renters with excellent support and insurance options, and a secure platform for listings, communication, and payments. There are plenty of other reasons though, like roadside assistance, detailed listings, and a wide variety of RVs to choose from.
