Discover Arlington, VA

On the western side of the Potomac River, across from Washington D.C. sits Arlington, Virginia. Even though Arlington is often considered to be a city, it is actually an entire county. The area was established as a county by the U.S. government in 1801 and was originally considered separate from the rest of Virginia. The county has predominantly served as an area for those who work in Washington D.C. to live. Today, this atmosphere has continued and due to its proximity to the nation’s capital, visitors who book an RV in Arlington have easy access to both the city and the natural wonders of northern Virginia.

If you don’t feel like driving your Arlington RV rental around on the busy, and sometimes hilly, streets of the area, the Washington D.C. public transportation system extends into Arlington. You will have easy access to the seemingly omnipresent red Metrobus. You can even take a bus, or simply walk, to a Washington Metro station and take a train farther into Virginia or into D.C.

When you book an RV rental in Arlington, the entire Mid-Atlantic region will open up to you. In one day, you can journey down to the seashore or into the mountains that cut up through Virginia. With so much protected land throughout the state, you’ll have such an endless list of exploration options to choose from that you may just have to return to the Chesapeake region.

The Great Outdoors

About 30 minutes northwest of Arlington is Great Falls Park. Even though the park is only about 800 acres, there is so much to see and do in this energetic and lively pocket of land. With 15 miles of hiking trails, you will be treated to beautiful views of the rapids, the wildlife and wilderness, and even some ruins of the town of Matildaville. If you’re an experienced kayaker, then launching your boat into the Potomac River can be a fun and adrenaline pumping way to spend your day. You’ll come across white-water rapids, eddies, and small waterfalls you can ride over. Or, you can sit on the banks of the river and watch the adrenaline seekers as you enjoy a picnic.

About an hour and a half west of Arlington is Shenandoah River State Park, in Warren County. At just over 1,600 acres, and boasting protected control of just about six miles of the famous Shenandoah River, the park has 24 miles of trails ready to be explored. You will be treated to breathtaking views of the slow, meandering Shenandoah River and views of the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains. If you want to see the park a little differently, you can reserve a spot on the Virginia Canopy Tour Zipline. This three-hour tour will lead you on wilderness hikes, an ATV trail ride, and then hook you up to a harness and set about an aerial tour via a skybridge, all culminating in a 1,000-foot long zipline ride through the trees.

If you want to give your Arlington rental motorhome a little bit more road time, about two hours west is George Washington and Jefferson National Forest, near Woodstock. This protected region of the Appalachian Mountains is a whopping 1.8 million acres large and is one of the largest protected areas in the eastern U.S. If you are looking to do some backpacking, you can hike along the 325-mile section of the 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. If that sounds a little too intimidating, you can instead jump on one of the other, shorter trails that make up the 2,000 miles of trails that wind their way through the forests. If you’re strategic, you could end your hike at one of the ponds or lakes and sit back and relax in the sand as you take in all the beauty that is around you.

RV Parks

After a long day hiking the Appalachian Trail or white-water rafting, you’re going to need to find a place to park your Arlington RV rental by owner for the night and get some much-needed rest. While there aren’t many options directly in Arlington where you can park your RV, there are plenty of places nearby that offer you wonderful accommodations.

About 25 minutes northwest of Arlington is Lake Fairfax Park. The park has a campground that offers electric hook-ups, bathrooms, showers, and dump stations. While the campground itself may be fairly simple, located within the rest of the park is an endless array of opportunities. You can take a stroll down a nature trail or go fishing or even spend the afternoon at the Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole, a Wild West-themed waterpark.

If you’re looking for something a little quieter, and a little removed from the bustling D.C. metro area, then stay out at Greenville Farm Family Campground. About an hour away from town, you’ll escape to a working farm where you’re given almost free roam around the farm. You can see the farm animals and stroll through the fields. But don’t worry, you’ll still have your full hookups, laundry facilities, bathhouses with showers, and even an on-site convenience store.

Explore the City

After you’ve driven your Arlington motorhome rental all over northern Virginia and done just about as much exploring as you can, turn back toward Arlington and explore this famed county of the U.S.

If you want to understand the sheer amount of manpower that it takes to run the United States of America, then there is no better place to go then The Pentagon. You can sign up for a tour of the largest low-rise office building in the world and get an insider’s look at these endless halls. On the tour, you will walk roughly a mile, and over the course of the tour, learn interesting facts and funny tales about this massive government building.

No trip to the Washington D.C. area is complete without paying your respects at the Arlington National Cemetery. With roughly 400,000 soldiers buried in this vast memorial, it is both a sobering experience and a memorable one. There are soldiers buried from every war America has fought in, as well as the Tomb of the Unknowns, which is guarded all hours, day and night, out of respect of the fallen Americans lost and buried without identification.

After spending some time exploring northern Virginia and Arlington County, you can indulge in a famous Chesapeake Bay crab cake, and then relax in your Arlington travel trailer rental.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
