The Great Outdoors

Between the recreation parks on the Potomac River and the amazing beaches lining the nearby Chesapeake Bay, there are several places where you can immerse yourself in nature. Westmoreland State Park has over a thousand acres to explore along the Potomac River, and the amazing Horsehead Cliffs overlooking it offer panoramic views. Here you can find a bevy of hiking trails winding through the woods, and there are cabins, historic sites, a boat ramp, a pool, a gift shop, and a visitor center too.Caledon State Park also rests alongside the Potomac River, north of Monroe Bay Campground. The park was once owned by the Alexander brothers, who founded Alexandria outside of the nation’s capital. Aside from its amazing waterfront where guests may fish, boat, or swim, the park is a wonderful place to hike. It was even designated a National Natural Landmark thanks to its old-growth tulip poplar forest.Belle Isle State Park is located south of Monroe Bay Campground on the Rappahannock River, another beautiful waterway with dazzling views and lots to offer. The park is home to a Georgian-style mansion as well as a colonial-revival style plantation house, two more historic sites to add to your list when you rent an RV near Monroe Bay Campground. There is an RV-friendly campground on-site, along with boat ramps, boat rentals, bike trails, hiking paths, and more.If you really want to feel awestruck by the beauty of Virginia, drive your motorhome rental west to Shenandoah National Park. Virginia’s lone national park is absolutely inspiring, especially when you drive along its famous Skyline Drive, traversing the Blue Ridge Mountains and all the jaw-dropping scenery that comes with the territory. Camp out beneath the stars, hike part of the Appalachian Trail, and enjoy the drive when you visit this national treasure in western Virginia.

City Sightseeing

When you're camping at Monroe Bay Campground, you’ll be near lots of wineries and vineyards in the area.

The George Washington Ferry Farm, the Mary Washington House, and the Hugh Mercer Apothecary House account for a small fraction of the wonderful places you can see and learn about while visiting Fredericksburg. The James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library celebrates and honors the country's fifth president. Housed in his original law practice building, this fantastic historic building has a wealth of information about the life of James Monroe and his presidency.Another historic site to check out is the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park, full of antebellum mansions and historic battlefields from the Civil War. Two visitor centers help guests learn all about the storylines and past of the area and the implications of these events in American history.The Fredericksburg Area Museum is another fascinating place to visit when you rent an RV near Monroe Bay Campground. This lovely space tells the story of both Fredericksburg and Virginia, from the ancient native indigenous people who lived there for thousands of years to the first colonies back nearly 500 years ago. When you book an RV in Westmoreland County, you can also head to Washington D.C. and Richmond for endless numbers of attractions, sporting events, concerts, and museums.

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.
