The Great Outdoors

If you're looking for a quick hike or a rocky place to test your climbing skills, you only have to drive your Monterey rental RV to nearby Cookeville to get to the Bee Rock Overlook. A vertical cliff face bordered with colorful foliage come fall, the Bee Rock is reachable after hiking the 0.7-mile trail from the parking lot. The verdant mountain vista of the Upper Cumberland is well worth the detour off of I-40.Half an hour's drive from your campsite at Belle Ridge Campground, Burgess Falls State Park beckons nature lovers with steep bluffs, narrow ridges, and rolling water surrounded by abundant mixed forest. Plants, trees, and animal life teem in the park, with over 300 species identified. Four waterfalls can be viewed on the 1.5-mile round-trip loop.Less than ten miles from the entrance to the park is the entrance to the Window Cliffs managed by the Burgess Falls State Park. A fragile geological clifftop, Window Cliffs is only a few feet wide at the top towering above Caney Creek.For a grander time outdoors, take your campervan rental from Monterey and head to the free-flowing Big South Fork of the Cumberland River. Protected as a national park and spanning about 120,000 acres, the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area offers a veritable playground for a variety of outdoor recreation. Whitewater seekers should test their mettle at the "big three:" "The Washing Machine," the "Double Falls Rapids," and "The Ell." Hikers and mountain bikers share the Grand Gap Loop Trail while intrepid rock climbers face a steep challenge at the 200-foot vertical wall just above the O&W Bridge. It's thought to be one of the tallest in the state and ideal for multi-pitch routes.

Exploring the Area

See "Where the Hilltops Kiss the Sky" as you pedal on the Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail linking Monterey to Cookeville across the high plains of central Tennessee. Running alongside a refurbished railroad track that used to carry coal, the trail was owned by the Tennessee Central Railroad and decommissioned in the late 1960s. In honor of its past, the trail is bookended by the terminus towns' historical depots.Strolling around Monterey, you're not likely to miss the "Standing Stone" built in the late 18th century. This monument in Whitaker Park is believed to be made by the Cherokee and contributed to the growth of a settlement that now grew around this landmark. Mark your calendar in October and find an RV rental near Belle Ridge Campground to join the locals in honoring the Native Americans during the Standing Stone Day. Festival events include the laying of the wreath and tomahawk, arts and crafts, and the arrival of an excursion train from Nashville. You may even get a chance to shop fresh produce at the farmers' market around this time.The county seat, Cookeville, may look like a small, laidback southern town, but you'll be surprised at the numerous galleries and venues in town that celebrate visual and performing arts. The dining scene is also something to carefully plan for, as there are over 100 restaurants and mom n' pop diners to explore.If you love wine, assign someone in your group to drive your Monterey camper rental as you hop from one winery to another along the Upper Cumberland Wine Trail. The trail threads a handful of vineyards and wineries in Baxter, Jamestown, and Lafayette, including Cookeville. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Riesling are some of the wines you'll have the pleasure to sample along the way.With a family-friendly campground in the Cumberland Plateau, you’ll be close to nature, history, and a bubbly wining and dining scene. There’s no reason not book an RV rental in Monterey, TN, right now and bring everyone in the family to indulge in the delights the area has to offer. There’s always time to plan while on the road, so find a motorhome rental now and go!

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.
