The Great Outdoors

One of the Blue Ridge Parkway mileposts is Rocky Knob Recreation Area, where you can do more than just look at the mesmerizing vistas. Like hike through the amazing nature, full of native trees and delicate wildflowers, or go on guided tours to get to know more about the area. Sit down for a picnic, and try to spot all the fauna in the park. You can also stay at Rocky Knob Cabins, built in the ‘30s. How’s that for living history.If you’d like even more outdoor activities and don’t mind getting wet, steer that Martinsville RV rental toward Smith Mountain Lake State Park. As the name suggests, you’ll find a big lake, perfect for swimming, boating, rowing, and paddling. It’s also an ideal spot for fishing, whether you want to do it from a boat or from the picturesque pier, and you can have a picnic, and visit both the visitors center and amphitheater. It’s just one of those places that seem to have it all.If you haven’t quite had enough fun in the water, there’s always Fairy Stone State Park, where you can do all the lake activities (such as paddling, fishing, swimming, and rowing), and also go play at the playground - in the water. That’s definitely the best place for a playground. Don’t agree? There’s one on dry land too, don’t worry. Here you can also see the mythical fairy stones that gave the park its name and just spend some time outside.

Exploring the Area

It’s time to park your motorhome rental at Goose Dam Campground and go on a little local adventure. One of the best places for this is Martinsville, where you can go watch a NASCAR race and marvel at the noise, the speed, and the skills of the drivers. For anyone looking for something a bit less loud, there’s the Virginia Museum of Natural History, which displays not only the local history, but also African mammals, prehistoric fossils, and enormous ice age creatures - you might even spot a dinosaur or two (or at least some footprints).For some more recent history, you can check out the Heritage Center & Museum, inside the historic courthouse showcasing antiques, artifacts, and photographs from times gone by. There are items from the Civil War, Native American artifacts, and things from the farms and plantations of the pioneer era. Afterward, you can check out the art, music, and culture of Martinsville, and you can experience some more sports, like soccer and lacrosse. Visit the farms just outside of town, and don’t forget to have some of the tasty food. You can have burgers and subs, try some Italian or Mexican cuisine, or devour a delicious hot dog - and, of course, you can get some amazing barbecued ribs.There’s also a farmers market and many a café, so anyone renting a camper near Goose Dam Campground won’t go hungry - neither physically nor mentally.

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.
