The on-site activities at your disposal include miniature golf, a playground, a basketball court, and a nearby nature trail, plus fire rings and picnic tables at each campsite.

The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Forest County will combine all the creature comforts of home while offering easy access to nature the minute you step out of your RV rental's door. Once you're settled in and ready to start exploring beyond the campground, head for Northern Highland American Legion State Forest; this multi-use area provides timber resources to local towns and cities, as well as opportunities for outdoor recreation. It is managed to protect the natural habitats and vegetation and preserve the headwaters of three major rivers that flow through the area. Biking is allowed on all but a few of the park's trails, so watch for signs indicating if biking is allowed; hiking and picnicking are also popular activities and in the winter, you can enjoy snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is a series of refuges that are scattered over approximately a dozen different counties; these areas were originally logged, and the remaining stumpage was burned; it has since been reforested by the Civilian Conservation Corps, which created bridges, fire towers, and other structures during its effort. Some of these structures still remain, and a few are open to the public. If you decide to visit with the Wabeno motorhome rental, you can enjoy cycling on the paved roads or mountain biking the designated trails, which number about half a dozen; most of the trails are easy to moderately challenging, with one path being moderately difficult to very difficult. The park has a visitor center and interpretive areas if you want to learn more about the park and its ecosystems.Escanaba River State Forest is another example of forested areas that were clearcut, then returned to state ownership and reforested. Today the forest is a popular destination for hiking, bicycling, and camping; you can also come here to enjoy picnicking, fishing, and hunting, although you will need a license for hunting and fishing. There are many miles of trails where you use off-road vehicles such as ATVs, and in the winter, you can use the hiking trails for cross-country skiing. There are other groomed trails (in winter) that are useful for snowmobiling. Park your camper rental nearby, and you can return to its creature comforts when your outdoor excursions are done.

Exploring The Area

No RV vacation would be complete without seeing and experiencing the history and culture of an area in addition to its nature; if you feel this way, you should make a stop in the town of Antigo in Langlade County. This charming town has a museum managed by the Langlade County Historical Society; it's located in an authentic Carnegie library that has been adapted and has exhibits dedicated to farming and Native Americans, with items donated by residents. The museum has an 1870's log cabin out front and a locomotive with rail cars in the back. The town also has a movie theater and, if you're seeking some nightlife, a roadhouse bar with food service and unique decor.The town of Amberg is equally friendly and has nightlife and urban parks; take a stroll, and you can observe several local waterfalls or stay in town and observe the architecture and landscape. If dinnertime is approaching, there are a few cafes in Amberg where you can dine and a few more establishments within a reasonable distance. The food is mostly home-cooked American style served in large portions and cooked to order; most of the venues are locally owned and operated.Simple and quiet is what you'll find when you rent an RV in northern Wisconsin; book one of the campsites at S-J & W Ham Lake Campground, and you can enjoy all that this area has to offer.

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.
