Sitting on the shores of John H. Kerr Reservoir formed by the meandering Roanoke River, on the border between Virginia and North Carolina, Longwood Campground should be the next stop on your RV camping trip. Park your campervan rental next to the lake and surround yourself with lush vegetation providing a much-needed getaway from the city. Amenities you will find at this pet-friendly campground include restrooms, showers, and picnic tables and fire rings. RV sites come with water, electric, or no hookups, and there are also tent sites for travelers not camping at Longwood Campground in an RV.
You don’t have to go far to start enjoying the wonderful nature of the region – the reservoir, also known as Buggs Island Lake, is great for fishing, swimming, and boating, while its wooded shores seem like they were made for picnicking and wildlife viewing. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can hit the road in your rental RV and reach the Appalachian Mountains to the west and the Chesapeake Bay to the east of the state.
You can be a nature lover while still hoping to experience urban centers in the area you are visiting, and you are definitely in luck – the campground is located between two capitals. Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is calling for curious travelers to discover its interesting attractions, Maymont and Virginia State Capitol being some of them. Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, is waiting in the opposite direction, home to several universities and exciting museums. If you are ready to visit another capital, none other than the capital of the country, travel north to the busy streets and monumental buildings of Washington D.C.
Countless opportunities for outdoor recreation are waiting for you when you opt for one of the RV rentals in Mecklenburg County, and Staunton River State Park can serve as an excellent starting point of your adventure. Hugged by the Dan and Staunton Rivers, this natural oasis will show you what it looks like to have lush trees, soft meadows, and scenic shoreline in one place. In addition to camping with an RV, you can opt for staying in one of the cabins built by the CCC in the first half of the 20th century. If you are up for a swim, there is a swimming pool, while other aquatic activities such as boating, fishing, and water skiing are waiting for you on the lake. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders will find a network of trails, a great way to reach all the hidden spots of the park. A designated Dark Sky Park, it gives visitors a chance to witness the beauty of the night sky through a telescope or with the naked eye.
It does not only have a magical name but magical nature – Fairy Stone State Park is a true haven for outdoor lovers located less than two hours' drive to the west of the campground. It is named after the stones that were thought to have magical powers, and the best thing is that you can still collect them if you park your Clarksville RV rental at one of its sites. Fairy Stone Lake is there for swimmers, anglers, and boaters, while the system of multi-use trails is there for campers who want to explore the park on foot, by bike, or on horseback.
If you are looking for a vast area of wilderness where you can wander around and explore away from civilization, try motorhome camping at Shenandoah National Park. Thousands of acres of untouched nature hiding breathtaking waterfalls, peaceful valleys, and rugged rocks offering stunning panoramic vistas are all yours – explore them by hiking and biking on the trails or driving along Skyline Drive. Adventurers who really want to disconnect can do so by going for a backcountry camping adventure in the remote parts of the park – sleeping under the shimmering light of stars is an added bonus.
With so many wonderful cities of the East Coast within reach, it is difficult to decide which of them to visit. Since you cannot visit them all at once, start by traveling a short distance to Richmond and checking out one of its most popular attractions – Maymont. This Victorian estate will blow you away with the beauty of both Maymont Mansion and the grounds surrounding it. The mansion stands in the middle of several impressive gardens such as the Japanese Garden featuring a koi pond and a waterfall, and the Italian Garden with its beautiful fountains and fragrant roses. There is also an arboretum with hundreds of species of trees and other plants, another place adding to the charm of the estate.
Dating back to the 18th century, Virginia State Capitol is another must-visit place in Richmond, whether you are a history buff or not. Designed by none other than Thomas Jefferson himself, it will amaze you with its neoclassical architecture as soon as you lay your eyes on it. In addition to learning about the history of the Old Dominion, inside you will find what is said to be the only statue of George Washington made during his lifetime.
Art lovers are in luck – the North Carolina Museum of Art is less than two hours' drive away, in Raleigh. With a collection of artworks spanning over five millennia and one of the largest museums in the country, it is bound to amaze anyone who decides to pay it a visit. Whether you are just starting to get familiar with the world of art or are already a connoisseur, you will find something to your liking in one of over 40 galleries of this huge museum.
Parking your RV rental at Longwood Campground guarantees having something new to see and do all the time, from getting in touch with nature to enjoying a relaxing sightseeing trip.
