The Great Outdoors

Those looking to reconnect with nature can head to the nearby Lake Louise State Recreation Area in Miller. Thanks to the impoundment of Wolf Creek, Lake Louise was formed. Since then, it has been a popular spot for anglers to test their skills. However, Lake Louise is even more frequented by hunters due to the SRA’s prime location in the middle of South Dakota’s duck and pheasant hunting country. If fishing and hunting don’t interest you, you can still enjoy the beauty of Lake Louise in a variety of other ways. The SRA is also home to a disc golf course, volleyball courts, basketball courts, and even horseshoe pits. You can challenge your travel companions to some friendly competition - the loser has to clean the rental RV.Those who love wildlife can spend some time at the Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Frederick. At just under 22,000 acres of preserved and protected lands, Sand Lake works to preserve South Dakota’s waterfowl. Visitors are invited to explore the various hiking trails that wind through the wetlands. Sand Lake is a migratory hotspot for a wide variety of waterfowl and other migratory birds, so chances are that as you’re hiking along the trails, you will catch a glimpse of some migratory birds. Some lucky finds include the blue-winged teal, bald eagles, and great egrets.Wildlife lovers can continue their adventures at the Waubay National Wildlife Refuge in Waubay. The refuge is found within the prairie pothole region of the Midwest. Throughout the sanctuary, you will stumble upon a seemingly endless landscape of ponds, lakes, and little streams. What’s unique about this landscape, however, is how quickly it can change with rain. It doesn’t take much rain for the pothole ponds and lakes to flood. Thanks to this possibility, Waubay has become a common respite for migrating waterfowl and other migratory birds. The refuge welcomes visitors to enjoy the wildlife, explore the trails, and even try their hand at some fishing and hunting opportunities, provided you have the appropriate licenses.

Explore the Area

Those looking to get outside can head to Fisher Grove. Just 15 minutes' drive from your campsite at Hav-A-Rest Campground, Fisher Grove is a low-key park that welcomes visitors to explore the banks of the James River. You can also launch a canoe to explore the river from a more unique perspective. And if you’re traveling with kids, you can enjoy the playground.History lovers will enjoy a visit to Pickler Mansion Museum, the home of South Dakota’s first Congressman. The expansive mansion was completed in 1894 in the Victorian style. You can tour the rooms, learn about the history of the region and the family, and even see some of the original furnishings. However, the museum is only open during the summer months.Those traveling with children can spend the day at Storybook Land, the nursery rhyme-themed amusement park. Open during the warmer months of the year, Storybook Land showcases playgrounds designed around stories, a recreated landscape that pays homage to “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” and a variety of amusement rides.When it's time to restock and refuel the Redfield camper rental, you will have your choice between a couple of gas stations and grocery stores around the campground.After a day filled with hiking, fishing, and hunting, reward yourself with a local sweet treat: kuchen. This German cake is simple but delicious. The sugary cake base is often accompanied with jam or custard filling for extra sweetness.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
