The Great Outdoors

When you rent an RV near Apple Island Resort in South Hero, there are lots of parks and recreation areas in the vicinity to choose from. Within ten minutes' drive of the resort, you can find two of Vermont’s best state parks. Grand Isle State Park is a few minutes’ drive north, known for its fantastic beaches on Lake Champlain. You can use boat ramps to put your watercraft in the lake, have picnics by the water, swim, play some beach volleyball, or camp out for a night or two when you bring your campervan rental for a quick trip.Sand Bar State Park is just on the other side of the bridge connecting the island to the mainland, connected to the larger Sand Bar National Waterfowl Management Area. Between the two of these incredible natural areas, you can purchase some food at the concession stands, swim or suntan at the beach, rent kayaks or canoes, or birdwatch in a place known for its collection of migratory waterfowl. Niquette Bay State Park is closer to Burlington, set up for day-use only. Despite this, the park is a hugely popular destination for residents of Burlington, thanks to its dreamy nature trails, swimming areas, secluded beaches, and views of Lake Champlain. Fishing and kayaking are also commonly enjoyed at this tiny state park.One of the largest and best-known parks in Vermont is called Camel's Hump State Park, named for the distinctive mountain resembling a camel’s hump. With challenging hikes and stunning vantage points, it's no wonder this massive mountain attracts people from far and wide. Few places offer better opportunities to see the brilliant fall foliage each October, so don’t forget this enchanting park in central Vermont when you're camping in an RV at Apple Island Resort. Green Mountain National Forest is a treasure if you feel like driving to southern Vermont, covering almost 400,000 acres of land. Skiing and snowboarding are supremely popular activities for those visiting this sprawling forest in the southern reaches of the state.

City Attractions

When you stay at Apple Island Resort, there are a few villages and towns you can visit to get your fill of city attractions. Grand Isle is the largest town on the island. Here you'll find a nice variety of restaurants and shops, and you can take a tour of the Hyde Log Cabin and Schoolhouse. This incredible and rustic log cabin on the shores of Lake Champlain is thought to be one of the oldest structures in the state, dating back centuries.You can experience some of the region's unique vibes when you take your campervan rental to Burlington, a pleasant college town known for its quirky and inviting atmosphere. Breweries, art galleries, farmers markets, and cozy cafes line the streets of Burlington, particularly at the Church Street Marketplace, an award-winning open-air shopping area in the middle of town. Between this shopping area and the Burlington Farmers Market, you can get a great feel for this idyllic community.The Robert Hull Fleming Museum is full of artistic achievements and masterpieces from local artists, as well as a collection of European, African, and Asian art from all over the world. There are even ancient artifacts from far-flung civilizations adorning the halls of this breathtaking collection space built in 1931.

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.
