After camping at Leesville Lake Campground, you’ll wonder why it’s taken you so long to book an RV in Pittsylvania County. The swimming pool, event field, and pavilion make this RV park the perfect place to stay for anyone getting an RV rental near Gretna, especially if the whole family has come on the trip. Stroll around the wooded areas for some serenity, or go hiking on one of the trails that run through the beautiful surroundings, or take the kids to the playground - no one will be able to tell who’s the child and who’s the adult if you play as hard as they do.
Come evening, make a visit to the camp store and pick up whatever it is you need for a night by the fire pit, and get some gifts for your loved ones while you’re there. For some added comfort and heat, have a bath in one of the tubs in the bathhouse, or sit back to enjoy your favorite show; you see, there’s Wi-Fi. You’ll also get full hookups with 20, 30, or 50 amp service, as well as laundry facilities. No one or nothing will have to stay dirty when you’re RV camping at Leesville Lake Campground.
Unless, of course, you fall into the water when fishing at Leesville Lake, within walking distance from your RV rental. Here you can also go kayaking and canoeing, or spend some time on the floating dock. You’ll also find many forests in the area, as well as fun and exciting places such as Gretna, of course, and also Altavista and Appomattox. Or you could go watch some racing in Martinsville. The options are seemingly endless when you rent a camper near Leesville Lake Campground.
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.
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.
