The Great Outdoors

You can begin your RV rental vacation with a visit to Tennessee’s only national forest, Cherokee National Forest. Spanning across more than 600,000 acres and offering a plethora of recreational activities, this is a fantastic place for all the family. Choose from gentle nature trails and strenuous day hikes or pack your backpack for a multi-day trek. The forest is home to a 150-mile section of the Appalachian Trail and over 600 miles of non-motorized trails. Mountain biking and horseback riding are some of the most accessible activities on land, but the forest also provides opportunities for OHV driving and cross-country skiing.On the water, visitors can go whitewater rafting, kayaking, or tubing. With hundreds of miles of waterways, the forest is also a hotspot for motorized boating, tubing, and swimming. Nature enthusiasts can spot many species of flora and fauna, and the Cherohala Skyway Scenic Byway boasts some of the best outlooks for bird spotters.Next door to Cherokee National Forest is Roan Mountain State Park, one of the most impressive state parks in Tennessee. This 2,000-acre park is nestled at the foot of Mount Roan, offering challenging hiking trails, such as the Chestnut Ridge Trail, and spectacular views from Roan High Bluff. There are adventurous routes for mountain bikers, and a winding river provides a cooling place to dip your feet in the summertime. During the cooler months, the slopes of Mount Roan are swept with snow and draw the attention of Nordic skiers. Throughout the rest of the year, Roan Mountain State Park is teeming with wildlife. The park is home to white-tailed deer, black bears, and box turtles as well as 174 bird species. Bring your binoculars, and you can spot owls, hawks, woodpeckers, and many more.Before you head back into town, make a visit to Warriors' Path State Park. Here you can learn about the significance of this historic trading path during the Cherokee War while enjoying the natural setting. Threaded with a 12-mile network of hiking and biking trails, the park is a great spot for land-based activities. For watersports lovers, the park provides canoe, kayak, and paddleboard rentals next to Patrick Henry Reservoir, along with two boat launch ramps. Visitors with a keen eye and plenty of patience can also spot around 120 species of birds throughout the migration season.

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.
