If you want to explore the bayou even further, you can join a kayak tour or a pontoon cruise - just make sure to reserve a spot in advance.See nature undisturbed at the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge in Brazoria. Where the freshwater of the inland bayous meets the saltwater of the ocean, these brackish waters and salt marshes offer a unique glimpse of some of the region’s most threatened ecosystems. You’ll get to see rare plant life, such as bluestem prairie grass, and some of Texas’ most quintessential shoreline wildlife. This is a particularly diverse and exciting birding location. So bring your birding checklist, a pair of binoculars, and start scoping.

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.
