The Great Outdoors

First Landing State Park offers an excellent mix of nature and history. The waterways here have seen Native American canoes, colonial settlers, 20th-century schooners, and modern cargo ships. It’s the place where English colonists first landed in 1607 hence the park's name. And legend has it that the infamous Blackbeard once used the park’s Narrows as a hiding place. Virginia’s most-visited state park, First Landing has more than 20 miles of nature trails and 1.5 miles of Chesapeake Bay frontage. The park offers many recreational and educational activities as well as a campground with partial hookups.Another popular state park in the area is False Cape State Park. Covering 4,321 acres on the Currituck Banks Peninsula, the park is one of the few remaining undeveloped areas along the Atlantic Coast. Experience nature in a primitive setting, just be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and bug spray. On the peninsula, you can enjoy guided kayak trips, hiking and biking trails, primitive camping, interpretive programs, and six miles of unspoiled Atlantic Ocean beach. To maintain its pristine nature, the park is only accessible via bike, foot, tram, boat, or beach transport.If you thought you needed a lot of bug repellent at False Cape State Park, you’ll need double the amount if you plan on visiting the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Suffolk, Virginia. The refuge is the largest intact remnant of swampland in this part of the country. Covering over 112,000 acres, the refuge has hiking trails as well as opportunities for biking, nature photography, hunting, wildlife observation, boating, and fishing. The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge also has designations as a natural landmark, Globally Important Bird Area, and Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.

Exploring the City

Virginia Beach is a coastal city, and if you’re interested in learning more about local marine life when renting a camper here, pay a visit to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center.

While some gardens focus on collections of plants, others feature plants native to different parts of the world. Perfect for people of all ages, be sure to visit Norfolk Botanical Garden next time you're in town.If lighthouses are more your thing, then Cape Henry Lighthouse is certain to please. The lighthouse marks the southern entrance to the Chesapeake Bay and was the first federally-funded public works project when the United States was first formed.

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.
