You’ll never run out of things to do when you visit Wisconsin in an RV rental. Wisconsin has coastlines on two Great Lakes and an abundance of forests, farmlands and small towns to explore. Its cities, like metropolitan Milwaukee and stately Madison, are home to countless cultural attractions. The next step after deciding on the scenic Badger State as your vacation spot is to choose which RV class suits your needs.
If you like high-end comfort, drivable Class A RV rentals contain the amenities of a well-appointed home in a bus-sized vehicle. Class A RVs range in size up to 45 feet long to sleep 10 adults.
The Class B RV can be expanded with slide outs. Its amenities are on a less ornate scale than other motorhome rentals in Wisconsin, but it's perfect if you plan to spend most of your vacation days outdoors. A Class C RV sits on a truck chassis to hold what you need in the way of kitchen, beds, bathroom, and storage. Its smaller size means it gets more miles to the gallon of fuel, and its wide windows and over-cab bunks make the Class C a good Wisconsin RV rental choice.
Towable camper rentals in Wisconsin are good options if you own a large SUV or truck. If you have your heart set on a fifth-wheel trailer, you'll need a towing vehicle with a special in-bed hitch. It's possible your sedan may haul a small pop-up camper rental in Wisconsin.
You’ll find an abundance of RV parks and campgrounds in Wisconsin. For a pleasant experience, stay at the Wisconsin State Fair RV Park, which is directly inside the Milwaukee area. Plan to discover downtown Milwaukee from this RV park that provides full hookups and soothing hot showers for you to enjoy after your jaunts through metropolitan attractions. Relax by using the park's Wi-Fi to stream your evening's entertainment.
Country Roads Motorhome & RV Park on Lake Delton offers 100 campsites for travelers that have full hookups, on-site laundry facilities, and shuttles to the nearby casinos 24/7. It's quiet, friendly, and their shade trees deliver comfort from the heat.
Peninsula State Park, overlooking Lake Michigan, is known as Wisconsin's most complete park. It has 468 campsites, a summer theater, an 18-hole golf course, bike trails, and an 1860s lighthouse. The bluffs surrounding the park offer splendid views of the water.
Isle Royale National Park in nearby Michigan is a national park that offers island serenity amid Lake Superior. Park your RV at several gateway towns in either Wisconsin or Michigan, then travel by boat to the island park. Once you’re there, you can visit lighthouses, observe local wildlife, like mink, moose, and wolves, and take a hike or cruise around the island. You can also SCUBA dive there. Keep in mind that most ranger-led activities occur from June to August.
