Between the Harley-Davidson Museum and the Milwaukee County Zoo, Wisconsin's largest city offers plenty of fun attractions for RVers. Those who don't own a recreational vehicle can find some great rental options on RVshare. Before you plan your road trip, however, you should think about which type of RV you want. You'll find everything from travel trailers to motorhome rentals in Milwaukee. The largest motorhomes are the Class A rentals, which have enough space for 10 people. If you want a smaller trailer, consider a pop-up camper rental in Milwaukee. These RVs are perfect for parties of two.
Some of Wisconsin's best campgrounds are in and near Milwaukee. For example, Wisconsin State Fair RV Park offers 70 sites and has daily and monthly rates. It's close to the city's largest mall and other attractions, so the campground fills up quickly during the busy season. Jellystone Park in nearby Caledonia is perfect for those traveling with family. You can rent a golf cart, play a round of miniature golf and fish at the park's stocked pond. Cliffside County Campground and Rome Riverside Campground are some of the other popular campgrounds in Milwaukee.
You'll find multiple federal parks within driving distance of Milwaukee. For example, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore includes more than 70,000 acres of land spread across 21 islands. You can drive your RV across bridges to reach those islands and attractions such as lighthouses. The Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway sits on the border between Wisconsin and Minnesota. It offers water activities such as fishing and canoeing, and it's home to several campgrounds. Some of the state parks in Wisconsin include Point Beach State Forest, Governor Knowles State Forest, and Pattison State Park. The closest national park is Isle Royale, which is about 400 miles to the north and off the coast of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Milwaukee storage facilities offer amenities such as indoor and outdoor rental spots and secured access. When you pick a storage spot, you get a code that opens the entrance and exit. Only those with a code can enter the storage facility. Some of the most secure RV storage facilities in Milwaukee include Humboldt Storage and Stadium Self Storage.
Both Jellystone Park and the Wisconsin State Fair RV Campground have dumpstations that you can use during your trip. The state fair campground charges a $10 fee and allows you to fill up on portable water before you leave. Guests of Jellystone can use its dumpstation for free, but the campground also lets you enter and pay a fee to use the dumpstation without spending the night.
