The Great Outdoors

Campsites at the Eagle’s Nest Campground are a good base for visiting the Savage River State Forest, which lies along the eastern edge of the Eastern Continental Divide. It encompasses the State River Reservoir that was built in 1952 by the United States Army and is now frequented by anglers hoping to lure large and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and bluegill. You can stretch your legs on the more than 70 miles of hiking trails that wind through the forest, including the 17-mile Big Savage Trail, or explore the designated horseback riding and mountain biking routes. White-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and black bears are also found within its borders, and hunting is permitted in designated areas and seasons.Also in Maryland is the Green Ridge State Forest, a 46,000-acre protected area in Allegany County that was once home to the largest apple orchards in the world. It’s renowned for its scenic overlooks and relaxation spots along the banks of the Potomac River, as well as the tracks and tunnels of the abandoned Western Maryland Railway. More than 40 miles of hiking trails wind through the state forest, ranging from mountainous climbs boasting spectacular views to relatively flat routes following the park’s valleys and streams. A designated mountain bike circuit is also accessible to riders, offering 12 miles of challenging terrain.A 30-minute drive north of the Eagle’s Nest Campground is the Rocky Gap State Park, which was created following a donation by Edward Habeeb in the 1960s. In 1970, the Army Corps of Engineers created Lake Habeeb by the damming of Rocky Gap Run, and this 243-acre water body is now a hub for recreation. It’s a popular destination for kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boating (all of which are available for rent), as well as fishing for bass, black crappie, rainbow trout, and channel catfish. The lake is backed by the summit of Evitts Mountain, which can be accessed along the five-mile Evitts Homesite Trail that winds through beautiful areas of rhododendron and mountain laurel.

Exploring the City

Ridgeley campers can pick up groceries at the local store in Fort Ashby, which is just five minutes’ drive south, with a gas station and a couple of restaurants also available here. Alternatively, you can make the 20-minute drive into Ridgeley, where there’s a more extensive choice of services, supermarkets, and restaurants.Ridgeley forms part of the Cumberland Metropolitan Statistical Area along West Virginia’s border with Maryland. It’s home to George Washington's Headquarters, a historic log cabin that was used by the first president of the United States as a military command post in 1794. It was originally built a couple of blocks away but was later moved to its current site on a hill overlooking Wills Creek and the Potomac River, where Fort Cumberland once stood.Also in Cumberland is the Allegany Museum, which details the cultural heritage of Appalachian Maryland, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. It occupies a 1930's U.S. Court House and Post Office in Downtown Cumberland that was designed by R. Holt Hitchins using a combination of Art Deco and Neoclassical styles. The museum boasts a collection of over 50,000 items that include Native American artifacts and belongings from early European settlers, as well as objects relating to the industrialization of the 19th and 20th centuries. Another architectural landmark not to miss in the city is the Gordon Roberts House, a Second Empire-style residence whose Victorian rooms can be explored on guided tours.Whether you want to discover the historic residences of Cumberland or get active in the natural reserves of Appalachian Maryland, book one of the RV rentals in Mineral County and start planning your next vacation.

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.
