The Great Outdoors

It would certainly be a shame not to spend some more time by Leesville Lake while you’ve got your Gretna camper rental, so do that and get some quality lake time. At Leesville Lake Marina, you’ll get whatever you need to make your day a fun one, like fishing supplies, pontoon boat rentals, canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards, as well as a convenient store. There’s also a swimming pool, a full-service grill, fire pits, and Friday night fish fries with homemade ice cream. They probably won’t allow you to park your motorhome rental in the actual water, but you could always check.Follow the water, and you’ll find yourself in Smith Mountain Lake State Park, where you can enjoy even more watery fun. Apart from fishing either from a boat or from the pretty pier, you can go swimming or paddling, with gorgeous views of the surrounding land. Which, as a matter of fact, you can hike through and get a closeup of some of the stunning vistas. If you want to know what it is that you’re seeing, pop into the visitor center and start learning.What’s that? Another park with a lake? Yes, you heard that right: you can go boating and swimming in Fairy Stone State Park - there’s even a playground in the water. You can also stay on dry land and search for both beautiful and rare fairy stones in their raw form, or hike through the leafy green forests, trying to spot an animal or two. Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby, so you know you’ll see some astounding sights and views at this park.

Exploring the Area

The town of Altavista is but five minutes away from your Gretna campground and is the home of the fantastic Avoca Museum. It’s an old country house built back in 1901, but still teeming with history in the shape of furniture, artifacts, and photographs from times gone by. It’s a fascinating insight into what life was like in this place a century or two ago, and even if you don’t care much for history, you can still enjoy the beautiful garden.Appomattox is a little bit farther away, but still well worth a visit. If you haven’t had enough of history yet (and when does one ever tire of history), you need to check out The American Civil War Museum. It’s filled with artifacts, documents, and photographs from the war, and you’ll think of the word "freedom" in a whole new way after a visit here. There’s also delicious food in these two towns, whether you’re in the mood for Italian or some grilled food.So, have you made up your mind about getting that RV rental near Leesville Lake Campground yet? If not, you’d better hurry, or you might miss out on one of the best RV vacations you’ve ever been on.

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.
