The Great Outdoors

Just down the road from the RV campground is Pickwick Landing State Park in Counce. This is the perfect place to enjoy some freshwater recreational activities. You can bring your motorized boat to the park, or you can rent a paddleboat and begin to explore the Tennessee River. Or, you can find a cozy spot along the water and set up your line and see what you catch. If you’d rather stay on dry land, you can hit the links and play a round of golf at the highly rated golf course. Challenge your travel companions to a game of disc golf for something a little less formal.Those who want to immerse themselves in the peridot and emerald hues of Tennessee’s southern forests should spend some time at Laurel Hill Wildlife Management Area in Lawrenceburg. The oak-hickory forest found at Laurel Hill feels endless and is only broken up by Laurel Hill Lake on the southern side of the WMA. Bird watchers are encouraged to head down to the shores of Laurel Hill Lake to gaze along the water or up in the trees to spot some local and migratory birds. No matter what time of year you visit, you are sure to see some rare and unique birds, such as the cerulean warbler, the great blue heron, and maybe even the loggerhead shrike.To explore some of the neighboring states, head south of the border to Holly Springs National Forest near Blue Mountain, Mississippi. This expansive hardwood and pinewood forest attracts visitors from all across the Southeastern U.S. The forest is almost entirely comprised of native species. Holly Springs is home to several small lakes and ponds, making it a great destination for anglers to test their luck in relative solitude.

Explore the Area

History lovers should make the short journey to Shiloh National Military Park. Honoring those who fought in one of America’s fiercest battles, Shiloh National Military Park protects both the Shiloh Battlefield and the nearby Corinth Battlefield in Mississippi. With a variety of events happening throughout the year, be sure to check ahead to see if you’ll get to witness a re-enactment, listen to a lecture, or maybe even watch the Civil War-era baseball game.For something a little less intense, the Tennessee River Museum in nearby Savannah is a fun and informative destination. The Tennessee River Valley has been occupied for a long time, and this museum works to showcase much of this history. With artifacts from early native populations and the pioneer era to modern-day items, you are sure to learn something new at this local museum.Just south of the border in Corinth, Mississippi, is the Coca-Cola Museum. Just a 30-minute drive from the Pickwick Dam campsites, this fun and unique museum showcases the history of the Coca-Cola company. Not only that, but you can delight in the bright and fun advertisements, memorabilia, and art that adorn the walls, all dedicated to the popular sweet-tasting fizzy drink.When you are traveling with an RV rental in Hardin County, you may need to refuel the rig and stock up on supplies. In Counce, there are several options around for both gas stations and grocery stores, so you’ll never be too far from what you need.With all of the freshwater rivers and lakes surrounding you, it isn’t a surprise that catfish is a commonly enjoyed meal in Tennessee. Whether you catch it yourself or you go to the local diner, some baked or fried catfish is a delicious way to end your perfect day in southern Tennessee.

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.
