The Great Outdoors

If you want to explore some of the stunning landscape that surrounds the RV campground, head to the neighboring Castle Mound Pine Forest. One of the sections of the Black River State Forest, Castle Mound offers unique geologic formations for you to explore. The rocky outcrops rise up nearly 200 feet, giving you a wonderful view of the surrounding landscape. Due to the dramatic rock structures, the Castle Mound section is also home to several microclimates. These small sections of immense biodiversity showcase much of the region’s natural habitats in one convenient location.Those who want to explore some of the wetlands of the Great Lakes region should head to Deer Island State Natural Area in Pittsville. These remote bogs and fens create a landscape unlike anything else you’ll see. The unique soil composition of the region hosts a variety of plant species that you won’t find in many of the surrounding ecosystems. Bring a pair of shoes that can get muddy and travel through this unique landscape. This is also a wonderful spot for bird watching, as the sheltered environment provides plenty of safe nesting grounds for local and visiting birds.Spend time enjoying the beauty of a meandering river with a visit to Black River Savanna State Natural Area near Melrose. With several easy access points to the Black River, as well as several oxbow lakes within the park, anglers are welcome to cast a line. You can find a cozy spot and enjoy the day spent outside, surrounded by beautiful scenery. Or instead, you can opt for a hike along the river and see where the current takes you.

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.
