The Great Outdoors

Abilene campers who want to stay close to camp will want to stop at Abilene State Park. This park consists of lush woodlands along Elm Creek, with a lake and pond also on site. Lake Abilene and Buffalo Wallow Pond are ideal for casting a line, and the lake is also excellent for kayaking, canoeing, and light watercraft. You can swim in the lake; however, the on-site swimming pool might be a better option. There is a one-mile nature trail to explore. It leads along the creek and through the surrounding woodlands. If you're feeling competitive, there are basketball courts and soccer fields at the park.Another lakeside state park near Abilene is Lake Brownwood State Park. This park features meadows and woodlands on the edge of the 7,300-acre Lake Brownwood. This vast body of water is great for watersports, and campers will love kayaking or boating across this serene lake. Fishing is also popular, and anglers can rent equipment from the park. Common catches on the lake include catfish, bass, and crappie. There's also a three-mile trail that runs through the woods and by the park's historic cabin. While exploring, be on the lookout for local birds, including turkey vultures, red-tailed hawks, and greater roadrunners.When you rent an RV near Abilene, don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Valley State Park. This park contains forests and grasslands along White Bluff Creek. It's popular due to the 20 miles of hiking trails that pass along the river, offering access to preserved dinosaur footprints made millions of years ago. After walking with dinosaurs, visitors can cool off by taking a dip in the river, or cast a line and catch supper. There are lots of rare birds to watch out for in this park, with northern bobwhites and black-chinned hummingbirds nesting throughout the area.

Exploring the City

While there are plenty of exciting local attractions in Abilene, anybody looking to see the best of Texas should travel to Fort Worth.

This popular theme park is one of the best in Texas and features everything from thrilling rollercoasters based on Hollywood movies to carousels for kids. Six Flags Over Texas also hosts several shows that are aimed at both kids and adults.Another excellent attraction for families is the Fort Worth Zoo. RV campers traveling with kids will love this massive zoo, which holds over 540 different species ranging from mammals to insects. There are many fascinating creatures to see during your visit, including golden-headed lion tamarins, black rhinos, and white tigers. There's also a zoo train so you can traverse the zoo in style, and an open-air theater where you can watch a variety of animals perform tricks.There are lots of great cultural activities to consider when you visit Fort Worth, and art lovers will want to swing by the Kimbell Art Museum.

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.
