Discover Roanoke, VA


Roanoke is a city that sits in the southwestern region of Virginia, in the Roanoke Valley. It was first called Big Lick, established in 1852. That name was derived from an outcropping of salt that drew wildlife to the area. It took the name Roanoke in 1882 and was chartered in 1884. The name is said to have derived from an Algonquin word that basically meant shell money.

When you search for an RV in Roanoke, Virginia, you’ll be in the heart of some beautiful countryside, close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and just south of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest, near Hot Springs. If you travel a bit farther north into West Virginia, you can visit the Monongahela National Forest near Green Bank or, if you prefer to head a bit toward Washington, DC, you can check out Shenandoah National Park.

The Great Outdoors

There are many exciting things to see and do when you rent an RV in Roanoke, Virginia, and one of them is to visit Read Mountain Reserve. This is considered a pleasant and moderately challenging trailhead. It may sit in the middle of a residential neighborhood, and the parking isn’t significant so it may be a bit challenging navigating your Roanoke RV rental to this particular destination. However, the trails are well marked and it will take you between an hour and a half to two hours to climb and another hour back down, on average. The trails are considered mostly easy but there are some steep regions. The views are absolutely splendid.

Explore Park is another outdoor adventure with magnificent views. You will find some amazing mountain views, river views, decent parking, hiking, and you can do some fishing. There is an old farmstead and a variety of fish you could catch in the river, including smallmouth bass, catfish, carp, and bream.

Mill Mountain Zoo is another decent stop when you enjoy a luxury RV rental in Roanoke. It is a small zoo but is nicely laid out and maintained. It is perfect for people who don’t want to spend their entire day walking a large zoo and it is easy to access. For children, there is a playground toward the end of the park and that can be fun, especially when you’ve been spending considerable time on the road in the Roanoke RV trailer rental.

RV Parks

Enjoying a motorhome rental in Roanoke means you’ll probably want to park your wheels somewhere around here, especially given just how beautiful the region is. Roanoke Mountain Campground offers campsites, and while it does provide pull-through sites and pets are allowed, it doesn’t offer hookups.

Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park has RV sites but it does not offer any pull-through sites, though it does have big rig access. Sites have full hookup service. The park has laundry facilities on site, a rec room, recreation trails, a pet area, and propane is available.

Dixie Caverns Campground is located in Salem, Virginia and offers sites with full hookups, including 30 and 50 amp service. The campground also has restrooms, showers, propane, and a pet area. It does have big rig access and pull-through sites too.

Exploring the City

The Virginia Museum of Transportation is an absolute must if you have any interest in the progression of transportation throughout our history. When you’re cruising around in the best RV rental Roanoke has to offer, this is certainly a stop that makes sense. You can enjoy checking out the various history of planes, trains, and automobiles. You can also learn a great deal about the Norfolk Railway dynasty. The museum is well laid out and is great for all ages.

O. Winston Link Museum in Roanoke is a must-stop for train and photography enthusiasts. You will see numerous beautiful and well-done photographs, learn about lighting, how this artist created his works and a lot of rich history about O. W. Link. Not only will you learn a lot about this amazing photographer, but you’ll also learn something about the history of Roanoke and railroads in general, which is a wonderful added bonus.

The Science Museum of Western Virginia and Hopkins Planetarium is right in Roanoke and might be best suited for younger children. The museum offers a variety of interactive models and exhibits. If you rent a motorhome in Roanoke and have children, this might be somewhere you’ll want to take them for an early morning or afternoon getaway, especially if it’s raining outside.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
