Happy at home on the West Virginia-Virginia border, the city is split in two by the state border. However, the majority of the city lies on the West Virginia side. Nestled within the soft rolling Appalachian Mountains, the city is surrounded by some of America’s most beautiful landscape. Bluefield rose to fame and prominence due to its location on one of the largest coal seams in the world. The coal was mined for decades, powering the American Industrial Revolution, the Allies in World War I and World War II, and the famed American railroad industry. Today, visitors flock to Bluefield to experience the peace and quiet of the Appalachians. When you book an RV in Bluefield, you too will be able to enjoy this quiet corner of the world.
If you don’t feel like driving the Bluefield RV rental around town, you can hop on one of the buses operated by the Bluefield Area Transit service. With multiple routes operating in and around Bluefield, you should have no problem getting to where you need to go.
When you rent an RV in Bluefield, you will get to retreat into nature and reconnect with the beauty of the natural world around you.

If you want to give your Bluefield motorhome rental a little bit more road time, about two hours northeast is the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests near Lexington, Virginia. This pocket of wilderness covers an impressive 1.8 million acres and is one of the largest protected areas in the eastern United States. If you are looking to do some backpacking, you can hike along the 325-mile section of the 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. If that sounds like a little much, you can jump onto one of the shorter day trails that make up the 2,000 miles of trails that crisscross throughout the forests. Even though you chose to book your camper rental near Bluefield, jumping the border into Virginia is well worth it for this exploration opportunity.
Back on the West Virginia side of things it the Little Beaver State Park, located near the town of Beckley, West Virginia. An hour’s drive north of Bluefield, this state park is the perfect day trip.

If you want to explore some of the protected lands of West Virginia, then look no further than the Monongahela National Forest. You’ll drive through Lewisburg, West Virginia as you head northeast about three hours to this scenic park. You can choose to drive in between the towns located within the Monongahela for a little bit of country driving, or you can go hiking through the Potomac Highlands, some of which are contained within the boundaries of Monongahela.
