The Great Outdoors

Newport State Park in Ellison Bay is situated on the western shores of Lake Michigan. One of the most popular activities in the park is stargazing. In fact, Newport State Park was designated as an International Dark Sky Park. Because of its designation, the 2,372-acre park has minimal developments. As such, Newport State Park is a great place to visit if you truly want to immerse yourself in the wilderness and connect with nature when you're camping at Wagon Trail Campground. Take pleasure in hiking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, camping, and a myriad of other outdoor pursuits when you visit this designated dark-sky park.Peninsula State Park is another spectacular place in the area. Just a few minutes away in Fish Creek, Wisconsin, the 3,776-acre park is Wisconsin’s third-largest state park. It boasts a 38-acre island, a golf course, biking trails, hiking trails, campgrounds, and several other amenities and attractions. The park has eight miles of shoreline along rocky promontories, bluffs, coastal wetlands, forest, and meadow. In other words, a vast number of species call Peninsula State Park home. In one day, you might see a bald eagle perched high in a pine branch, a raccoon rummaging through the trash can, and a fox creeping through the woods. At night, as you rest your head in your RV rental, be lulled to sleep by the calls of the barred owl. A stunning place for explorers of all ages, you won’t want to miss Peninsula State Park when you book a campervan rental in Ellison Bay.The Mink River Nature Conservancy calls itself one of the few high-quality estuaries remaining in the United States. Witness as waters from the Mink River and Lake Michigan combine to form this freshwater estuary. The conservancy provides a home for many important plants and animals and serves as an oasis for migratory and breeding waterfowl. A variety of mammals make their homes among the mixed conifer hardwood forest of the conservancy as well. With 2,165 protected acres open to the public, the Mink River Nature Conservancy is an awesome place to see pristine nature when you book an RV in Door County.

Exploring the City

Acquaint yourself with local maritime history at Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. The waterfront museum explores the area’s maritime history through various exhibits. Learn about the shipwrecks of Door County, and check out various fishing vessel motors in the “Engines” exhibit. See artifacts from past and present dive expeditions in the Lake Michigan area or marvel at the intricate Fresnel lens of the Plum Island Lighthouse. Apart from the exhibits, the Door County Maritime Museum hosts special events throughout the year, including the “Merry-Time Festival of Trees,” the “Classic and Wooden Boat Festival,” and a wooden boat-building class.The coastal waters of Wisconsin are home to dozens of lighthouses, and Pottawatomie Lighthouse is just one of the many you'll see when RV camping at Wagon Trail Campground. In Washington, Wisconsin and lit in 1836, the Pottawatomie Light is the oldest light in Wisconsin and on Lake Michigan. The lighthouse is located within Rock Island State Park and is named after the Native Americans who originally lived in this part of the world. Come visit the lighthouse for a tour any day of the week.But if you want to experience Door County without driving from place to place, you may just want to hop aboard a trolley. The local trolley company offers a variety of tours led by local experts. Join a narrated scenic tour, see all the area lighthouses on a lighthouse tour, or take a horse-drawn carriage ride to a local winery. For your comfort, the trolleys are closed and air-conditioned (or heated), making it an awesome adventure for people of all ages any time of the year.

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.
