The Great Outdoors

There's a lot to see when you book an RV in Mathews County. This incredible coastal wonderland and everything around it is packed with dazzling recreation areas, nature preserves, campgrounds, beaches, and parks, so you'll have nearly endless options. Tons of nearby nature reserves give you the chance to see some local wildlife, aquatic animals, and migratory birds in their natural habitats. Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve and New Point Comfort Natural Area Preserve are two of the closest wildlife areas when you rent an RV near Gwynn’s Island RV Resort & Campground.Newport News Park over near the city of Newport News offers much to explore, and 30 miles of trails to hike or bike. The park is historically important, as the Battle of Yorktown was fought there. In addition to historic battle sites and nature trails, there is an 18-hole disc golf course too. York River State Park is a bit farther away, but home to scenic landscapes and enchanting river frontage on the York River. Archaeological sites left behind by the native people of Virginia are part of the park’s appeal, along with the old tobacco plantation by the water.Consider packing up the Gwynn motorhome rental for an overnight visit to Shenandoah National Park, in western Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This tranquil mountain sanctuary has sublime views from its rigid peaks, and one of the world’s most jaw-dropping scenic roads on the Skyline Drive. The Blue Ridge Mountains are especially magical in the autumn when the foliage begins to change colors, and camping in the park is perhaps the most authentic way to experience it.

Exploring the City

Gwynn’s Island is more than just a few beaches and a campground; there are two peaceful communities on the island, along with lots of sightseeing spots, restaurants, museums, and shops. The Gwynn’s Island Museum is unique and informative, with a treasure trove of artifacts telling the story of the island and its communities. A special emphasis is placed on the history of African Americans and Native Americans in this brilliant institution, accounts that are often overlooked in other places in favor of colonial history.Deltaville Maritime Museum offers up a different perspective on local history, instead focusing on the navigational and nautical aspects of Virginia's past. The Chesapeake Bay is one of the largest and most strategically important bays in the country, so it is only fitting to have such a museum near the bay, explaining the different types of ships and boats that pass by on a daily basis, and the military ships down in Newport News.The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is one of the most fascinating and unusual bridges in the world, and a great place to drive your RV rental for an experience unlike anything else. This engineering masterpiece is part bridge and part tunnel, and stretches nearly 18 miles in length, bridging the gap across the bay while dipping underwater for large stretches to accommodate the naval fleet and other ships making their way to ports like Baltimore. Other places you can head off to while camping at Gwynn's Island RV Resort and Campground include Busch Gardens in Williamsburg and the Old Jamestown Settlement which is thought to be the first permanent colony in the United States.

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.
