The Great Outdoors

The first place you’ll want to explore with RV rentals in Washington County is Zion National Park. You’ll have direct access to trails and activities when you’re camping at Zion/South Campground. The landscape of this stunning national park is known for its unique geological formations as well as its dramatic canyons, cliffs, and challenging trails. If you're looking for a strenuous hiking trail, then follow Angels Landing to a lookout point above Zion Canyon. Or, you can bring a bike and hop onto the Pa’rus Trail. Horseback riding, white water paddling, canyoning, and rock-climbing are also available in Zion National Park.Adrenaline seekers aren’t the only ones who love Zion National Park. Its viewpoints and colorful rocks also make it a prime location for photography. The best way to cover a vast distance in the park is to drive along one of its scenic byways. You can choose from a five-mile route through crimson walls on the Kolob Canyon Road, best in the winter season, or wind along the cliffside on the Mount Carmon-Zion Scenic Highway.The next place you can go with a campervan rental is Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, famous for its pink-tinged sand. These rolling dunes provide fantastic opportunities for fat-tire bikes or ATV driving. There are designated trails to keep the motorists and pedestrians apart. Those who prefer to explore on foot can hike a 5.5-mile loop trail of the dunes. During the fall, this state park is a hotspot for sandboarding and visitors can test their skills of slopes of over 300 feet. Whichever way you choose to discover Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, remember to take a minute to search for fresh coyote tracks and photograph the brightly colored cactus flowers.If you still have some vacation days left, you can drive through the epic scenery to Gunlock State Park. The park is more rugged than others in the region, and here you’ll have the chance to spot foxes and coyotes on the ground or birds of prey in the sky. There are several hiking routes ranging from easy to medium difficulty, these are threaded around the banks of Gunlock Lake. The lake itself is suitable for swimming and boating. You can paddle a canoe, kayak, and SUP, or launch a vessel from the park’s boat ramp. It’s the perfect spot to visit while you're renting an RV in the springtime.

Explore the Area

Another key feature within the boundaries of Zion National Park is the Zion Human History Museum. It’s within easy walking distance when you’re RV camping at Zion/South Campground. The museum showcases the rich human heritage of the lands which are now part of Zion National Park, from Native American tribes to the first pioneers, and the development of the national park. The exhibitions include paleontological artifacts, photographs, and pressed plant specimens. The museum also shows an informative introductory video about Zion National Park.For a more modern display of local culture, you can visit the neighboring town of Springdale. This tiny town is located just outside the southern boundary of Zion National Park. It provides visitors with art galleries, locally made crafts, and a good selection of cafes and restaurants. If you want a bite to eat while you’re camping with an RV, just take a drive to downtown Springdale. Here you can find Mexican favorites, classic American diners, and organic dishes served with live music.While you’re in town, you can check out what’s going on at the O.C. Tanner Amphitheater. Built into the magical southern Utah landscape in 1976, a show at this open-air theater is one you’ll never forget. This venue regularly hosts plays and concerts ranging from classical music to rock and roll. The O.C. Tanner Amphitheater also hosts the annual Zion Canyon Music Festival in September. During the two-day event, you can hear some of the region’s best artists and bands, taste local foods, or purchase souvenirs to take home at the end of your vacation with an RV rental near Zion/South Campground.

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.
