The Great Outdoors

One of the first places you’ll want to visit is Pocahontas State Park; it’s just 40 minutes' drive away when you’re RV camping at Amelia Family Campground. The park is most popular during the summer months when you can swim, enjoy a picnic by the lake, or see a show in the outdoor amphitheater. This is also a scenic spot for paddle sports such as canoeing, kayaking, and SUP, or you can explore by rowboat. On land, there are plenty of recreational activities too. With over 64 miles of trails, you can explore Pocahontas State Park by hiking, cycling, or horseback riding. Before you take your RV rental to the next destination, you can also drop by the park's Environmental Education Center to learn about the flora and fauna.Another highlight of the area is Powhatan State Park, which is located alongside the James River. The park is ideal for water sports. You can launch a canoe from one of the three canoe launch sites, or join a guided canoe tour of the James River. The park also provides eight miles of hiking trails, most of which are suitable for cycling or horseback riding. One of the most scenic is the Gold Dust Trail, which leads to a view above the river. In the spring, you can see wildflowers between the trees. In the sky, you can spot a variety of native Virginia birds.If you’re looking for family-friendly activities, then Twin Lakes State Park is the perfect place to visit. As well as hiking trails that meander through lush woodlands and water sports on two serene lakes, the park offers special events throughout the year. In the peak season, you can learn how to hit the bulls-eye with a bow and arrow or take part in an up-cycling event on Earth Day. The park also hosts stargazing events during the offseason as well as a number of educational programs which range from nature hikes and canoe trips to children’s programs and campfire nights. There’s something for visitors of all ages at Twin Lakes State Park in Virginia.

Explore the Area

After exploring the great outdoors, you can spare a day or two to see some of the region’s city attractions and historical sights. Amelia Court House is the closest town when you're camping at Amelia Family Campground. Here you can get a coffee and snack in the town’s family-run lounge café, refill at the gas station, or pick up supplies at the general store. Amelia Court House also hosts a nonprofit historical society, with Civil War artifacts and many memorable objects inside the Jackson Building. The highlight of the year is the Amelia Day Festival in May. Visit Amelia Court House during the festivities, and you can shop for handmade wood crafts and jewelry, taste locally produced foods, or take part in family-friendly contests.Nearby is the Haw Branch Plantation, an estate which is more famous for its ghost stories than its history. The mansion was constructed 10 years after Colonel Thomas Tabb and his wife moved to the plantation in 1735. Abandoned for many years, the building was restored in 1965, but its new residents were quick to notice unusual happenings. The Haw Branch Plantation is now listed as one of Virginia’s haunted houses, and there have been numerous paranormal sightings including ghosts walking the grounds, speaking portraits, and a haunting plea for help which rings through the halls.For something a little less spooky, you can make a visit to the Crewe Railroad Museum on Highway 460. The museum hosts original steam and diesel engines that you can climb aboard. Inside the station, there are collections of photographs, railroad artifacts, and historical articles that you can look through. There are model trains to examine and, for the railroad-enthusiasts, the museum hosts a special tour each year in December.If you’re looking for a wider range of museums and galleries, family-friendly entertainment, or just want a bite to eat, then you can take your campervan rental to Richmond. The city is less than an hour's drive away and has everything from fine art to contemporary art galleries and museums that teach about the American Civil War, famous writers, or science. Whether you want to spend time in the city, or you prefer to sight-see in Amelia County, there’s plenty to see and do when you rent a camper near Amelia Family Campground.


It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

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.
