The Great Outdoors

Book an RV in La Crosse County, and you will be all set to begin your exploration of this wonderland. Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge was created in 1936 when then-president Dwight Eisenhower drafted an executive order calling for a migratory bird refuge and breeding ground. The result is a birdwatcher's paradise, with black terns, sandhill cranes, and numerous other species residing here full or part-time; the arrival of the yellow-rumped warbler in late April heralds the arrival of spring. The park consists of marshes, oak savannas, and bottomland forests that combine to become an integrated habitat that provides shade and refuge for the resident wildlife and outdoor recreational opportunities for the public. You can hike or mountain bike in the park, go canoeing or kayaking, or fish for bluegill, crappie, and northern pike, among other species. Keep your RV rental nearby, and you can refrigerate your catch until it's time to start thinking about dinner.Van Loon Floodplain Forest State Natural Area is a nature preserve housing a variety of both tree species and wildlife; stands of silver maple, swamp white oak, and green ash are situated between channels of the Black River which flows through the park. The resulting ecology has produced ground vegetation such as ferns, wood nettle, wild ginger, and other plant life. Hawks, woodpeckers, and herons are just some of the bird species that reside here, and the area is an ideal location for outdoor photography as a result. Hiking, hunting, and fishing are allowed, and you can come here to enjoy cross-country skiing in the winter. Your rental RV will make the perfect wildlife and photography blind while you wait in comfort for that perfect shot.Black River Savanna State Natural Area was established in 2008 and is a combination of sand prairie and barrens. It has a wide variety of both common and rare flora, plus oak, cedar, and sumac tree stands, and all of this creates a varied habitat that supports numerous birds and wildlife species. You can come here to go hiking and fishing; hunting is allowed with the appropriate license. Geocaching and rock climbing aren't allowed in order to protect the plant life, but the area is ideal for nature viewing and photography.

Exploring The Area

Wisconsin has spectacular natural settings, but it also has great urban amenities and a welcoming vibe that makes everyone feel right at home. The city of Melrose is small but friendly and has a swimming pool, tennis courts, urban parks, and a number of baseball diamonds. It was incorporated in 1913 and is relatively modern, but small enough in size that you can take a leisurely stroll and observe the town and its structures. If you're starting to feel hungry, the city has a few restaurants you can try, and one of them serves German food. This venue has daily specials, or you can order from the menu, and there is a salad bar available to complement the meal if you choose.Onalaska has a winery where you can relax and sample its products; there is a good variety of sweet and dry wines, both red and white, and also a selection of beers that they brew. One of their more unique varieties is a watermelon wine. The city has health spas where you can recover from your activities (or go have a massage just for the sake of having one) and a gift shop with a variety of knickknacks you can take home and locally produced artwork for sale. The restaurant scene is impressive with breakfast diners, pub restaurants, and much more. If you really love steak, barbecue, and/or Mexican food, then this city is definitely for you.Western Wisconsin is the ideal destination for an RV vacation, with an endless supply of natural settings, culture, and urban conveniences to satisfy your every need; when you decide this is where you're going, Whispering Pines Campground will be there waiting for 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.
