Wisconsin Dells has earned the nickname “Waterpark Capital of the World” and rightfully so. Wisconsin Dells KOA is just a few miles from the city's downtown area and a convenient place to stay to enjoy a quiet RV campground while remaining close to the action. From the moment you arrive in your camper rental, you can relax and get settled in with a shower in the camp's restrooms and get some laundry done if you need to. The camp has Wi-Fi so you can touch base with people back home and cable channels if you really just want to kick your feet up and relax. Got kids with you? There are basketball and volleyball courts, a playground, and an area for your pets to romp around in.The RV park has a variety of site types you can choose from depending on your needs; some are back-in and some pull-through, while some have no hookups, water only, water and electric, or full hookups. There is a dump station if you decide not to hook up to the sewer and some of the sites have shade or patios. During the summer months, you can take advantage of the heated swimming pool and the outdoor family movies presented by the campground; on less pleasant days, there is a game room that will take your mind off of the weather.When you're ready to venture out, camping at Wisconsin Dells KOA gives you access to rental fun-cycles you can use to explore the neighborhood. There are several water parks a short distance away; one of them is a combination water park and theme park with roller coasters and go-karts. Another is one of the largest water parks in the nation. You can take a relaxing water tour of the Wisconsin River and Lake Delton, enjoy an old-fashioned circus or try your luck at the tables in one of the nearby casinos. If you'd rather try something more exhilarating, there's a zip line park suitable for both young and old that passes from tower to tower through magnificent tree canopies.

The Great Outdoors

RV rentals in Columbia County are your perfect choice for creating a motorhome camping experience you won't soon forget. Just a few miles west of Wisconsin Dells KOA, Dell Creek State Wildlife Area is a combination of forest, grassland, savanna, and private farmland where you can enjoy hiking, birding, and other activities. In the winter, you can go cross-country skiing or snowmobiling through the park, although there are no set trails or markers for skiers. Hunting and trapping are allowed within the park with the proper permits and so is gathering edible vegetation such as mushrooms.About the same distance south as Dell Creek is west, Mirror Lake State Park is a semi-cultivated outdoor recreation area with picnic shelters and grills and an amphitheater that can be rented for special occasions; it also hosts concerts occasionally. You can come here in your RV rental to go canoeing and kayaking, paddle boarding, or to swim at the groomed beach (there is no lifeguard on duty, though). You can rent equipment on-site, including boats for rowing or fishing on the lake, or hike or bike the many miles of trails. There are sand volleyball courts if you happen to be here with a group; nets are available, but you'll need your own volleyball.Farther down the Wisconsin River from Wisconsin Dells and closer to Portage, Pine Island State Wildlife Area is a combined use area that includes a natural refuge and recreational park. It consists of wetland habitats, grasslands, oak/savanna habitats, and wooded lots along the shores and inland from the Wisconsin River. There are also several small islands within the river including the island that the area was named after. If you enjoy bird and nature watching, you will want to spend at least a little time here; Canada geese have nested here since the 1950s, but you'll also have a chance to see white-tailed deer and wild turkey, reptiles, and insects. You can hike here, but there are no designated trails. You can also canoe or kayak or spend some time fishing. Camping is not allowed within the wildlife area.

Exploring The Area

About 20 miles north of Wisconsin Dell KOA, you'll find the moderately sized town of Mauston. This small city began as a lumber industry town but has since included tourism as one of its industries. If you'd like to try your hand at horseback riding, there is a stable here with friendly and reliable owners who can outfit beginners as well as experienced riders. There are several water sport tours you can take; one of them takes you out in a motorized pontoon boat while another takes you on a downriver trip in tubes that follow the current. There are several bars on hand for entertainment, and the town's culinary scene is varied and extensive with Italian and Chinese restaurants, cafes and delis, and more.A little less than 20 miles southwest, you'll come across Reedsburg, which is home to an annual festival celebrating food, farming, and agriculture-the industry which has supported the town for many years. This means the town's restaurant industry is just as important and where you'll want to come to experience true Wisconsin fare. Here you'll find restaurants that specialize in breakfast (always a good find) and pub-style restaurants that often provide large portioned meals.Whatever you're looking for in a rental RV vacation, you're sure to find it here along with small-town hospitality and memories that will last. Wisconsin Dells KOA is where you'll want to stay, at the center of it all.

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.
