Bear Creek Lake Campground

Your phone signal might be a bit weak, but who cares about that when there’s Wi-Fi.

The Great Outdoors

You simply can’t stay at a Cumberland campground without making use of all the gorgeous nature and great trails to be found in Cumberland State Forest. Try to spot the old homesteads and cemeteries of former inhabitants, play hide-and-seek with the squirrels that appear to be behind every tree trunk, and just enjoy the peace and quiet while strolling through forests of oak and hickory. Oh, and there’s the Bear Creek Lake, of course.If you’re looking for more outdoor activities, hop into that Cumberland RV rental and head to Chippokes Plantation State Park, situated on the James River and full of recreation as well as both natural and cultural history. There are picnic areas, a swimming pool, a farm museum, and beach access, and since this is one of the oldest continuously operated plantations in the country, you also find original buildings and structures such as plantation outbuildings and slave quarters. And, of course, there are lots of hiking opportunities as well.With another name full of the historical influence of both the British and the Native Americans, Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest is the place for any bird watcher who decides to book an RV in Cumberland County. Spot woodpeckers and sapsuckers, red-shouldered and red-tailed hawks, as well as the common turkey vulture, or look a bit closer to the ground where you might see small mammals or colorful butterflies. Since most of the forest was farmland a century back, you can see many different varieties of plants and vegetation in the area. You can also go fishing, hunting, or geocaching in this gorgeous forest.

Exploring the Area

Camping with a rental motorhome at Bear Creek Lake Campground isn’t all about the great outdoors of Virginia, believe it or not, even though you’ll often find that culture and the outdoors often intertwine. Like at Sweet Tree Hill Farm, where sheep and rabbits are kept for wool and yarn, and where you can buy all sorts of colors, and even have customized knitted socks made if you pre-order them before you rent a camper near Cumberland. It might just be the perfect Christmas present for both friends and family.If you were intrigued by the visit to Chippokes Plantation State Park - or just find history incredibly fascinating, why not spend a day or two visiting places with connections to arguably the most famous Native American, Pocahontas? Jamestown is a given, and you can experience life as a settler 400 years ago, climb on the ships that crossed the Atlantic (or replicas, technically, but no need to spoil the fun), or watch archaeologists discover the James Fort. Walk in the footsteps of Pocahontas, talk to living history characters, and watch glassblowers at work - you might not want to leave this place.So, how about that Cumberland RV rental, have you started looking yet? With all the fun to be had at and around Bear Creek Lake Campground, how could you not?

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.
