The Great Outdoors

RV camp at Christopher Run Campground to gain easy access to Lake Anna, one of the largest reservoirs in Virginia. Lake Anna has a surface area of about 13,000 acres, 9,000 of which is open to the public. The balance is privately owned and used by a power plant. Newcomers need not worry about venturing too far. The boundary of the privately-owned area is well marked with stone dikes. Boating and swimming on Lake Anna is a popular activity. Well over, 17 miles long from end to end, there’s plenty of room to zip up and down the coast in races toward an invisible finish line. Launch a sailboat and whiz by, carried by the wind.There are several “arms” and nooks into which boaters can retreat should they desire some quiet for an idle day of sunbathing, swimming, or fishing. There are about a dozen different fish that lurk beneath Lake Anna’s clear waters. Largemouth bass, bream, and crappie are especially good, and anglers report catching trophy-sized fish. Lake Anna State Park has a public boat launch, and there are several boat-rental services in the small towns alongside the shores of the lake.Nature lovers can also hit the trails at Lake Anna State Park. There are over 15 miles of trails, most of which are multi-use, shared with horseback riders and bikers. Heads up: horse owners must be able to produce a copy of a negative Coggins report for each horse if asked.Dozens of crystal-clear babbling streams and creeks feed into Lake Anna. This region was once known as “gold hill,” and even today, people occasionally find nuggets of gold. Panning is enjoyed by many, although it can be a frustrating activity if one’s expectations are too high. Lake Anna State Park runs a regular how-to panning program for anyone who wishes to pick up tips from the experts.

Exploring the Area

Though the small towns in remote Virginia are few and far apart in between, traveling from town to town in pursuit of the perfect gift shop, boutique winery, or family-friendly festival is painless in a motorhome rental. Built-in 1742, Jerdone Castle overlooks Lake Anna. The bygone plantation home is on the National Register of Historic Places, and although it’s not open to tours, visitors are welcome to study it from the road.Ready for some high-octane thrilling fun? Kings Dominion in Doswell, VA, is open year-round. It boasts 12 wild, twisting roller coaster rides, eight equally hair-raising rides, and dozens of other tame, gentler options ideal for people who easily get motion sick or toddlers. Kings Dominion also has regular concerts, shows, and other fun events.When you are hankering for the perfect souvenir to take home as a reminder of this fun RV camping trip, visit one of the local towns’ annual festivals. The Dogwood Festival in Charlottesville has been held annually in April since 1950. It traditionally has a parade, carnival, fireworks, and vendors with a variety of locally-made arts, crafts, and delicious food.At the end of a long day of hiking, boating, or exploring, stop at Tim’s at Lake Anna Restaurant and Crabhouse. The long-time mainstay restaurant is well-known for its delicious home-cooked seafood. It specializes in steamed crab and savory crab chowder.

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.
