This area has too many wonderful RV campsites to choose from both outside and inside the park. A few notable options ideal for RV’s are The Arboretum, where you can have the unique experience of camping on a christmas tree farm or for another remote and quiet option Bumps & Bruzas Riverfront is a very simple property on the Carbon River with no hook up and only 7 sites making it the perfect place to relax and unplug (Max 40 ft RVs).

Mt St. Helens:

Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1980 and devastated the landscape, but almost 40 years later it has been a true testament of nature’s resilience. Today you will experience a vibrant thriving  ecosystem.

Spend the night at Seaquest State Park, a 505 acre park that is connected to the Mount St. Helens Visitors Centre by a pedestrians tunnel. The visitors centre is an attraction of its own where you can learn about the historical significance of the landscape and the resilience of surrounding ecosystems through talks, exhibits, and films. The campsite also has a boardwalk around the wetlands where you can enjoy stunning volcano views.

There are a variety of different hikes to enjoy here for all skill levels. Here is a link to 16 of the best trails to explore. If you are especially ambitious and organized you can buy a permit to hike to the summit which go on sale each February. It can be a challenging hike with some scree, bouldering, ash, and possible snow, so come prepared for the weather.

Mt Hood:

Stay at Trillium Lake Campground, located at the base of Mt Hood, in the beautiful Mount Hood National Forest. This campground offers unparalleled views of the summit. There is a very friendly atmosphere and it is a great spot for swimming, hiking, biking, or non-motorized boating.

The Trillium Lake loop trail circles the alpine lake and presents astounding views of the mountain.

Class C RV Rentals

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Class C RV’s are the most common type of RV. Class C RV’s are characterized by the large bed directly over the drivers cabin. Class C’s are available in many sizes. I have seen them as small as 22’ and as larger are 35’. These motorhomes tend to sleep more people than a similar sized Class A as you get that extra bed over the driver. Most Class C RV’s allow you to walk from the driver’s area into the cabin of the RV, but I have seen exceptions to this, so it is always good to ask before you rent the RV if this is important to you. This RV will tend to be a little easier to drive compared to a Class A motorhome because the wheelbase is much more similar to regular passenger vehicles. In the end this is the most popular type of RV simply because of the extra sleeping space that it provides. Class C RV’s can be rented from almost any major city across the US including, Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN),Boston (BOS) Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Ft Lauderdale (FLL) Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

Class A RV Rentals

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Class A RV’s are characterized by the large flat front, similar to a bus. While Class A RV’s tend to be the longest of the RV’s available they also tend to sleep fewer people as there is no bed over the driver’s area of the RV. Class A RV’s also tend to be the most luxurious RV’s available, having more high end features. These RV’s are usually over 28’ long and some can be as long as 45’. Driving a Class A RV will take a little practice as they drive a little differently than most vehicles. You will need to take corners wider than with most vehicles as a Class A handles more like a bus. Any Class A RV that you find available for rent on this site will only require a standard driver’s license. Class A’s can be rented from Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

The motorhome you choose is really a matter of preference, and how many people you need to accommodate in your rental.

This is where you can take your RV rental to find year-round skiing and snowboarding. Run-off from the slopes of Mount Hood create an abundance of fruit production in the valley. Waterfalls are also abundant and make that area the USA’s only national scenic area.

Southern Oregon is fantastic for taking your RV rental to historic sites, perfect fishing spots, or the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. In the Klamath Basin, you’ll see seven wildlife sanctuarys with a vast amount of bald eagles. Crater Lake National Park contains a surplus of volcanic attractions, including the magnificent Crater Lake.

For those who wish to have their Oregon RV rental vacation in the sunniest part of Oregon, travel straight to the center of Oregon.
