Glacier Valley Campground

RV camping is all about getting away from daily life; sometimes, the tricky part is not getting so far away that you've fallen off of the grid. Glacier Valley Campground achieves this to perfection; located just a few short miles from Pardeeville, Wisconsin, Glacier Valley is close enough to provide you with access to gas stations, ATMs, and anything else you might need, yet far enough away that you can enjoy breathtaking sunsets and listen to the wind whistle through the trees. This family-friendly RV park has restrooms with hot showers, a convenience store, and a dump station, just to name a few of the amenities. If you're looking for activities to enjoy within the RV campground, it has hiking trails and horseshoe pitches, miniature golf, a nine-hole disc golf course spread out in the woods, and a sand beach with a volleyball court.Within Pardeeville, you'll find places to shop, restaurants if you decide to let someone else do the cooking, and two lakes where you can enjoy boating. If you have a pet with you, there's a veterinarian available too; the town is small enough that you can take a leisurely walk and enjoy the sites, including several churches and buildings blending in with nature.

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Columbia County, and you can choose a rig that matches your vacation needs perfectly. Once you've picked up your rental RV, steer it towards Peter Helland Wildlife Area near Cambria. Peter Helland Wildlife Area is predominantly made up of wetlands but also has areas that are made up of tree stands and shrubs, grasslands, and some areas that are leased for agriculture. The marsh areas have been used for hunting since before the arrival of Europeans and hunting is still allowed for deer, waterfowl, and prairie chicken; the park is an ideal destination if you enjoy hiking, canoeing, and wildlife observation.Devil's Lake State Park is a recreational area that's open to the public year-round; it has a nature center with exhibits and staff who can answer any questions you might have. The hours of operation for both the park and the nature center vary according to the season, so you should contact them directly for more specific information. The park has several concessions where you can buy supplies and gifts and rent equipment such as canoes and kayaks; one of the concessions is located in the park campground, and the others are located on the shores of the lake. Nearly half of the bird species found in Wisconsin can be found in Devil's Lake State Park along with a variety of mammals. Hiking is allowed, but some areas are fragile, and you should stay on the designated path in order to protect them.Swan Lake State Wildlife Area is a combination of wetlands, grasslands, and forested areas, divided by the Fox River, which flows north and west through the park. It's an ideal place for birding, wildlife viewing, and nature photography. You can hike in the park but should be aware of your surroundings as the park is surrounded in some places by residential areas that are private property.

Exploring The Area

Now that you've seen and enjoyed the countryside with your Cambria motorhome rental, it's time to head back into the towns and cities to appreciate the area's culture. Start by heading for the town of Portage, which is home to some designated landmarks and several museums dedicated to local history. You'll enjoy an afternoon here if you want to shop or have an interest in the arts; you'll also find family-oriented activities such as a movie theater with reclining seats and other state-of-the-art amenities, and a ski hill that's open for hiking in the summer. Portage is a good place to stop for a meal; you can find breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a variety of cuisines, and good service without having to spend too much.Rio is a small community that is renowned for its camping facilities and has a small but enjoyable collection of restaurants on hand. Most of these offer typical American style food which is cooked to order, comes in large portions, and is reasonably priced; there are a few alternative cuisines available if you're in the mood for something different.Finding a balance between peace and adventure while RV camping doesn't have to be challenging. Set up camp in one of the sites at Glacier Valley Campground in Cambria, and you can enjoy the best of the natural surroundings while exploring the attractions that this interesting region has to offer.

It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
