The Great Outdoors

In the heart of Virginia’s mountains, there are several state parks and state forests in the area that invites outdoor recreation fun. Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest covers almost 20,000 acres of gently rolling mountains and picturesque valleys. There are over 20 miles of multi-use trails open to hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Horse owners, take note: all riders must have proof of a negative Coggins test result on hand and be prepared to show it if asked. The trails meander through tall second-growth woods, passing by ancient ruins of homesteads. The outline of foundations, which were typically constructed out of stone, are often still visible. Some of the homesteads also have small cemeteries, which hints at the harsh life in the early settlers' days.During the appropriate seasons, hunting is permitted. All hunters must have a Virginia hunting license and observe the restrictions and bag limits. During the season, hunters may target a variety of small game creatures like grouse, pheasants, rabbits, waterfowls, and turkeys. Deer and bear hunting is also allowed, though permits for bears are very limited because they are still scarce in the area. Trout fishing, too, is permitted year-round; however, in between October and May, there is a catch-and-release restriction. During the summer months, fishermen may keep - or eat - their catches, though.Neighboring park, Holliday Lake State Park, boasts a small lake with a boat ramp. Visitors may use it to unload small craft boats like paddleboats, kayaks, and canoes. If adventurers want to hit the water, there are small, non-powered boats available for rent at the park office, too. Fishing is abundant, and anglers can expect to catch largemouth bass, chain pickerel, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Holliday Lake State Park also has six miles of established trails, which covers a few miles of woods apiece. Heads up: although these trails are open to horseback riding, the parking lots in this park prohibit horse trailers. Riders may access these trails via a connecting trail found in Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest, though.

Exploring the Area

Virginia teems with history and old-world charm, and this region is no exception. Hop into a rental motorhome and explore the small rural towns that dot the backwoods of Virginia. Search for the perfect gift shop at which a souvenir of this RV camping trip could be found. Or embark on a wine tour. Grapevines thrive in Virginia’s rich soil, and there are dozens of wonderful wineries with delicious wines for visitors to sample. Veritas Vineyard and Winery, near Afton, is a family-run affair whose wines have garnered several awards and medals.When you are looking for a little family-friendly fun, in Natural Bridge, VA, is Virginia Safari Park, which is the only drive-through zoo. Visitors can observe animals roaming an open area from the safety of their vehicles. The brave guests can also choose to feed these wild critters, which include llamas, buffalo, elk, giraffes, emus, and yaks.Whether your goal is the perfect outdoor hiking and travel trailer camping or learning about the history of Virginia, you’ll find it all by Airstream camping at Paradise Lake Family Campground.

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.
