RV Rental and Campervan Hire in Baltimore
Baltimore is the largest city in the state of Maryland rising on the tidal portion of the Patapsco River.

Tour the Chesapeake Bay by RV
The Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay is Maryland’s main attraction with historic towns and nice beaches you can get to on a Baltimore campervan hire. While the bay’s productivity has declined in recent years, you can still enjoy estuary-grown or farmed oysters in the many restaurants surrounding the area.
On top of these cultural and natural draws, there is also the NASA Goddard’s Visitor Center just 30 minutes away by motorhome hire in Baltimore where children can try on kid-sized spacesuits and the family can climb inside a model of the Gemini Space capsule. If you time your visit right, you may be able to catch their monthly model rocket launch.
Driving your campervan rental in Baltimore to Upper Marlboro, you will be able to spend time in Six Flags America where there are no less than 100 rides for the family to enjoy. There is also a large water park that features the biggest wave pool in the country. In 2014, a new Mardi Gras section will open featuring yet another new roller coaster, the park’s 9th.
Washington DC and Maryland
Your Baltimore motorhome rental will allow you the drive along the Potomac River towards Washington, D.C., to view the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian Institution, among the many attractions that make the U.S. capital a tourist magnet. If you come in spring, the rows of blooming Japanese cherry trees along the Tidal Basin will make you want to explore District of Columbia’s outdoors which are surprisingly leafy. You can also climb the Capital Wheel which allows bird’s eye views of the capital.
From the Washington, D.C. area you can drive your Baltimore motorhome rental south on Route 219 for 13 miles. This will bring you to Deep Creek Lake, an ideal location for swimming and other outdoor activities. The lake is the largest expanse of fresh water in Maryland with 65 miles of coast which you can hike and bike to your heart’s content. With a campervan rental in Baltimore, you will be able to stay and enjoy the activities as long as you please.
