RV Rental Destination Ideas
With Spring right around the corner, the weather seemingly better than ever and our RV Rental Destination Ideas, now’s the time to start planning for a breezy getaway with family and friends. And maybe this year, you’re considering turning in your “cozy” tent for something a little roomier. With that in mind, TX RV Adventures has put together a list of five fantastic destinations to take an RV to this Spring – and why these destinations are the perfect opportunity to ditch the canvas tent in 2020.
Destination #1 – Sherwood Forest Faire – McDade, Texas
Whether you’re looking for a fantasy outing for the kids or a boisterous night out with old friends, Sherwood Forest Faire has something to offer everybody. With over 150 live performances including music, comedy, jousting, and more; countless vendors ranging from unique street food to full blacksmith shops; and archery tournaments, jousting, live action roleplaying, and everything else “medieval” you could possibly think of, Sherwood Forest Faire is the most magical experience you’ll have this Spring.
Why Sherwood Forest Faire is the Perfect Texas RV Destination
If you’ve experienced a renaissance-themed festival before, you know that camping is a huge part of the experience – and unfortunately, it can be a rather uncomfortable experience in a tent. Often, revelers can keep their antics up through the early morning, and inclement weather can make the whole experience rather “sludgy”. While Sherwood Forest’s campgrounds do not have RV hookups, it gives your group the chance to experience boondocking in a less remote way; and once you’re ready to go to sleep, you’ll be more than glad you aren’t in a tent out in the elements.
Open Weekends Feb. 29-April 19
$15 per adult (13+)/$7 per youth (6-12) per weekend (campground admissions only)
Destination #2 – Balcones Canyonland National Wildlife Refuge – Marble Falls, Texas
A gorgeous sanctuary dedicated to the conservation of endangered songbirds including the golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo, the Balcones Canyonland National Wildlife Refuge is the destination of choice for adventurers looking to appreciate nature – while still being close enough to a major population center to scratch any urban itches. Free of charge to the public, this refuge boasts over seven miles of hiking trails and several vantage points to observe the resident wildlife from.
Why Balcones Canyonland National Wildlife Refuge is the Perfect Texas RV Destination
Due to this destination being a wildlife refuge, there are no campgrounds on site, but plenty of campgrounds with low rates scattered around the area. So if you bring an additional vehicle with you, you have the opportunity to experience other nearby destinations – including the infinitely hike-able Greenbelt and a 45 minute drive to Austin. In fact, a trip to Balcones Canyonland may prove to be a great, low-rate option for experiencing South by Southwest!
Open Monday-Friday 8:00 am – 4:30 pm
Destination #3 – Big Bend National Park – Big Bend National Park, Texas
Occupying the entirety of the Chisos mountain range and much of the Chihuahan Desert, Big Bend National Park is the ultimate RV destination for those looking to truly get in touch with nature. Boasting over 800,000 acres, Big Bend is one the most remote and least visited national parks in the United States. Big Bend National Park has something for every camper – with hundreds of miles dedicated to hiking, climbing, biking, river exploration, wildlife observation, and more. Big Bend National Park is also an international dark-sky park, offering an unparalleled view of the stars.
Why Big Bend National Park is the Perfect Texas RV Destination
262 miles from El Paso and 288 from San Antonio, Big Bend is far, far away from wherever you might live – certainly far enough that the creature comforts that an RV provides might prove necessary for all but the most experienced long-distance travelers. And once you reach the park, Big Bend has endless options for camping, from full hookups and amenities to backcountry camping. Visiting this virtually untouched park is a difficult but rewarding experience, and having an RV might just help you reduce that difficulty.
Open 24 hours
Destination #4 – Boulderdash Cabin and RV Park – Bandera, Texas
Looking for the ultimate seclusion? The Boulderdash Cabin and RV Park in Bandera has just three RV sites, in addition to similarly-limited cabins and tent sites. Direct access to Medina River and the proximity to Bandera affords adventurers a secluded area for kayaking, horseback riding, and more. Boulderdash Cabin and RV Park may lack in direct guidance on activities, but this park allows travelers to choose their own adventure.
Why Boulderdash Cabin and RV Park is the Perfect Texas RV Destination
Boulderdash is a unique opportunity to experience all wonders of camping without the potential of noisy neighbors. The extremely private nature of these campgrounds also means that the camp proprietors are readily available to assist with any concerns you may have. And iff your RV adventures involve river floating, you simply cannot beat the access that Boulderdash Cabin and RV Park provides.
Open 24 hours
Destination #5 – Tyler State Park – Tyler, Texas
Located in the Pineywoods, Tyler State Park is a beautiful destination for those seeking the lush experience of a pine forest. Tyler State Park is also one of the most dog-friendly locations on the list! This park is a great option for campers looking to appreciate nature and outdoor activities without giving in completely to the mercy of the elements.
Why Tyler State Park is the Perfect Texas RV Destination
Tyler State Park provides an excellent balance between experiencing nature and having easy access to park services and a nearby population center. Whether you’re a first-timer or quite seasoned, sometimes having RV Rental Destination Ideas is necessary to help you transition more easily to the camping life.
