The Great Outdoors

Van Horn campers looking to explore some nearby mountains should visit Davis Mountains State Park. This 2,700-acre state park consists of plains and rugged terrain, making this a superb spot for hikers. A 4.5-mile trail leads through the park's valleys and up mountains, affording spectacular views of the area. Birding is also a favorite activity here, and the park is said to have one of the best bird blinds in Texas. The park is also excellent for horseback riding, with roughly 11 miles of trails. One of these paths takes riders over 5,900 feet above sea level to an overlook that boasts breathtaking vistas of the Davis Mountains.If you're searching for somewhere to cool off after traversing the area's dusty plains, plan a trip to Balmorhea State Park. Swimming opportunities at this park are unmatched, thanks to a large freshwater swimming pool with water supplied by the nearby San Solomon Springs. The park is also wonderful for wildlife viewing due to its unique desert wetland environment, with an array of fish and bird species inhabiting the region. Some of the rare birds seen in the park include horned grebes, Neotropic cormorants, and Harris's hawks.Directly north of Van Horn RV Park, you’ll find the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Home to the four highest peaks in Texas, this almost 87,000-acre park has a lot to offer. At over 8,700 feet, Guadalupe Peak is the highest in the Guadalupe Mountains Range and the tallest in Texas. The slightly lower El Capitan was used by travelers as a marker heading to California.There are some spectacular parks dotted across Texas, and one of the largest is Big Bend Ranch State Park. This mammoth park covers over 300,000 acres of canyons, rocky mountains, and desert plains near the Mexican border. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders won't be short on trails here, with over 230 miles of multi-use trails to uncover. The Rio Grande and Rio Bravo rivers also offer scope for watersports, and visitors will love floating through the park in a kayak or canoe. While exploring the park, consider visiting the Barton Warnock Visitor Center to learn more about the park's flora and fauna.

Exploring the City

The town of Van Horn is within walking distance when you're RV camping at Van Horn RV Park. The community is home to a good selection of restaurants and cafes. You’ll also find a gas station to top up your rental RV, along with numerous grocery stores.Although it was once a hotel, you’ll probably find camping in an RV more comfortable than a room at the Clark Hotel Museum in Van Horn. Built in 1901, it was previously the post office, then the courthouse, and was converted to a hotel in 1920. Step back in time and observe the well-preserved structure with Old West decor, a large saloon bar, and hotel rooms that have seen little change over the decades. Several rooms are dedicated to artifacts depicting the history of the town, including railroad, farming, and mining memorabilia.There are some other vibrant cities worth discovering with your Van Horn motorhome rental. No trip here would be complete without a visit to El Paso. It's one of Texas's most diverse and culturally rich cities, and this can be seen in its high-class museums. The El Paso Museum of History chronicles over 400 years of history along the country's border with Mexico, and as a result, features some essential American history. Visitors will see a range of exhibits, with artifacts relating to the American- Mexican War, relics from local native tribes, and much more. This museum is a great place to learn more about this historic city.El Paso also contains an exceptional art museum, the El Paso Museum of Art. This museum is one of the only art museums in western Texas and features thousands of pieces of art from around the world, dating back as far as the 13th century. The museum has well-respected holdings of European art, with paintings by world-famous artists including Anthony van Dyck, Giovanni di Paolo, and Battista Dossi.If you're looking for an excursion the whole family will love when you rent a campervan in western Texas, consider a trip to the El Paso Zoo. This mid-sized zoo contains over 220 species from across the world, with many exotic animals inhabiting the park, such as meerkats, greater kudus, and Sumatran orangutans. The zoo even offers experiences and encounters so you can get up close to some of your favorite critters.

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.
