Now that the hot days of summer are over, camping is still alive! Chilly mornings, perfect hiking weather and warm comfort food all come together to make fall camping a must-do for any outdoors enthusiast.
After Labor Day many campgrounds drop their rates, stop taking reservations, and become first come first serve. With peak season behind you, it's the time to get the most affordable rates.
Chilly fall temperatures chase the bugs to a warmer climate. This makes forested campsites more comfortable. Please keep bug spray packed, just in case.
A Good Night's Sleep
Sharing a small sleeping space in the summer months can make your fifth-wheel even more unbearable. However, sleeping is more comfortable on cool fall nights. Snuggle up with your little ones or significant other for a long, restful sleep under the stars.
The fall season is prime time for an array of different camp activities. When you go camping in the fall, try:
- Apple picking
- Pumpkin picking and carving
- Local harvest festivals like Oktoberfest
- Halloween events
- Fall fishing derbies
Meeting new people is a great benefit of camping. Still, busy campgrounds can be overwhelming. With less people inclined to camp during the school year, you can enjoy having fewer neighbors and less crowded hiking trails.
