Discover Lexington, VA


Home to the Washington and Lee University, Lexington is an independent city in the state of Virginia. It was named in 1778 after Lexington, Massachusetts (where the first shot was fired in the American Revolution) and was famously home to Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee, two of the best-known Confederate commanders during the Civil War.

With its historic residences and attractive streets, Lexington is the perfect place to rent an RV while exploring the Appalachian Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley. There are plenty of family-friendly campgrounds on its doorstep while being just two hours’ drive from the capital of Virginia, Richmond.

The Great Outdoors

Book an RV rental in Lexington and make the short drive north to Shenandoah National Park, which extends along the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains. One of the most popular ways to explore the park is along the 105-mile-long Skyline Drive that roughly follows the ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Spend the day slowly driving between its 75 lookouts, which offer spectacular views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west and the Piedmont region to the east.

If you want to get active, Shenandoah National Park is also a hub for recreation, with plenty of trails that can be explored on foot, by mountain bike, or on horseback. Tackle a section of the legendary Appalachian Trail that traverses the park or hike to the peak of Old Rag Mountain along what is one of Shenandoah’s most popular treks. Shorter hikes include the trail that leads to Dark Hollow Falls or the challenging 1.7-mile-long trail to the Hawksbill Gap, which offers impressive views across the park.

Lexington also makes a good base for exploring the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests, which extend across 1.8 million acres of land to the west of the city. These adjacent tracts of forest sprawl across the Appalachian Mountains and encompass sections of the legendary Appalachian Trail, as well as Virginia’s highest peak, Mount Rogers. Explore the "Grand Canyon of the South” at the Breaks Interstate Park and visit the historic fire lookout tower at Elliott Knob, then hike to the picturesque cascades of Saint Mary’s Wilderness.

RV Parks

Pick up your motorhome rental in Lexington and head to the Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA, which offers a range of full hookup sites that can cater to RVs up to 82 feet in length. There’s a swimming pool and also a dog park where your four-legged friends can run free, as well as access to cable TV and Wi-Fi.

Also nearby is Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park of Natural Bridge, a family-friendly campsite that overlooks the James River. There’s an on-site waterpark with slides, a swimming pool and a splash pad, as well as a cafe serving sandwiches, pizzas, snacks, and drinks.

Alternatively, drive east from Lexington to the Glen Maury Park in Buena Vista where you’ll find two campgrounds on the edge of the city. They both offer access to an Olympic-sized swimming pool and various pavilions while being within walking distance of restaurants and all the services you need.

Exploring the City

Park your RV rental near Lexington and explore the city on foot, stopping at the Lee Chapel & Museum on the campus of the Washington and Lee University. It was constructed in the 1860s for the President of the University Robert E. Lee who is now laid to rest beneath the chapel. Admire its Victorian architecture, then step inside to see the statue of Lee asleep on the battlefield and visit the small museum that details his life and work.

A short stroll from the Lee Chapel is the Stonewall Jackson House, which was the residence of Confederate general Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson from the late 1850s until the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861. It forms part of the Historic District of Lexington and housed the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital from 1907 until 1954. It’s now been transformed into a museum detailing the general’s life, including his time as a professor, church leader, and businessman in the local community.

Another cultural institute not to miss in Lexington is the George C. Marshall Museum & Library, which honors the legacy of George Catlett Marshall, the U.S. Army Chief of Staff during World War II. It’s housed within a striking stone building and features two adjacent galleries that explore his military career and his achievements following the war, including being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. Aside from the museum, the building also includes the Marshall Foundation Library and Archives where more than two million documents dating from 1900-1960 are preserved.

Lexington is home to a couple of supermarkets where you can pick up supplies, as well as a handful of eateries if you want to dine out. There are also gas stations if you need to fill up your camper rental in Lexington.

Whether you’re visiting the Shenandoah Valley for its museums or hiking trails, book an RV in Lexington and start exploring!

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.

Small travel trailers and campervans can usually sleep 2-4 people comfortably. Mid-size trailers and motorhomes usually sleep 4-8. Bigger rigs often sleep 6-10, some even 12!
