The Great Outdoors

Enjoy spectacular scenery and the second tallest waterfall in Virginia with a visit to Bottom Creek Gorge Preserve. Bottom Creek is a powerful mountain stream and one of the headwaters of the South Fork of the Roanoke River. These waters lead to a majestic 200-foot-high waterfall. The preserve is abundant with rare aquatic species and home to ten percent of all fish species known from Virginia. While here, you can explore more than five miles of hiking trails, view wildlife, and take pictures. Because it is a preserve, and in an effort to protect wildlife, pets are not allowed anywhere at the preserve. Just a few miles from Blacksburg in Shawsville, Bottom Creek Gorge Preserve is an incredible place to visit if you want to immerse yourself in nature and connect with the outdoors during your camper rental vacation.While you’re in town, you could also check out the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest. The large protected area stretches along the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and crosses into parts of West Virginia and Kentucky. It affords guests the chance to enjoy virtually every type of outdoor recreation. Mountain biking, hiking, fishing, camping, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and photography are just a few of the activities you can do here.If you want to be active outdoors yet not be too far from civilization, check out Blacksburg Municipal Park when you book an RV rental in town. The park sits on 35 acres and is one of the largest play areas in the city. At the park, there are several soccer fields, lighted softball fields, tennis courts, a roller hockey court, and a skate park. There are also horseshoe pits, a playground, swings, picnic shelters with tables and barbecue grills, and more. Whether you’re planning your next family reunion or looking for a place to let the kids play, Blacksburg Municipal Park offers something for the entire family.

Exploring the City

If you enjoy historic homes, be sure to check out the Historic Smithfield Plantation in Blacksburg when you book an RV in Montgomery County. The plantation was once the home of William Preston, a leader of westward expansion and a patriot during the Revolutionary War. In an era of log cabins, the Smithfield stood out for its elegance and became the political and social center of the area. It also served as a place of rest and storage of provisions before the next leg of westward expansion. Today, visitors can tour the home, the gardens, several outbuildings, and the Preston Cemetery.Botanists, horticulturists, and green thumbs shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit the Hahn Horticulture Garden. On the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, the gorgeous garden, which was established in 1984, covers six acres. Break away from your RV rental at New River Junction Campground for a while to appreciate perennial borders, shade gardens, water gardens, meadow gardens, and a variety of plants. Visit any time of the year, as there’s always something new to enjoy here.The Museum of Geological Sciences on the Virginia Tech campus has several exhibits including the OmniGlobe, fossils, rocks, gems, and minerals. There’s also a full-scale cast of an Allosaurus dinosaur skeleton. The minerals and fossils found in the museum are both local and international in their origins. In addition to the regular exhibits, the museum regularly schedules events, so be sure to check their calendar and see what’s going before you visit.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
