Is it that time of the year yet, when the RV campgrounds are filling up, and everyone is setting off into the sunset to do some fabulous RV camping? Spoiler: that’s all year round. Or at least May through October, if you decide to book an RV in Franklin County. And what with camping at Deer Run Campground being so incredible, why wouldn’t you come to this beautiful part of Virginia.This RV park is filled to the brim with fun things to do for the whole family, including a swimming pool, fishing, horseshoe pits, and playgrounds. Need to get away from the kids arguing over who won that game in the game room? Go for a little hike on one of the trails, and you’ll have your energy back in a jiffy. If that didn’t help, just send them off to do some crafts, go on a hayride, or plan an outfit for the Halloween party. Or perhaps you would all like a horrifying visit to the Haunted House? RV camping at Deer Run Campground has all that, and more. Much, much more.Like full hookups, a dump station, laundry facilities, a camp store, and even a maintenance shop. Not at fun as movie nights and covered dish dinners, but oh-so-convenient when your RV rental needs some attention, or the snacks have run out, or you got hot sauce on that last pair of clean shorts. There’s also 30 amp service, so no need to worry about taking care of your motorhome rental at Deer Run Campground.However, you can’t stay at the grounds your whole RV vacation, or you’ll miss all the great things in the area. Like the tiny town of Ferrum, or the vibrant Floyd, or charming Rocky Mount, all within 30 minutes' drive from your RV rental at Deer Run Campground. Play some golf, do some outdoor recreation, and don’t miss Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the most beautiful drives around.

Here you’ll get not only that, but you can also go swimming, paddling, and rowing in the beautiful lake, and have fun at one of the two playgrounds - one of which is located in the actual water. How fun is that?Hop into that Ferrum camper rental and drive to Smith Mountain Lake State Park, for even more watery fun. Do some more swimming and boating, or gear up to do some fishing, from a boat or the lovely pier. If you want to feast on the yummy catch right away and can’t wait until you get back to the Ferrum campground, just go on a little picnic in the park. It’s also recommended not to miss the visitor center or the cute amphitheater.

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.
