Crisp mornings, warm sunny days, colorful leaves, and cooler nights, what is not to love about fall camping? Here are our top ten reasons why you should join in on the fall fun.

1. Leaf Peeping.

I don’t care what name the townies call me. Ain’t no shame in my leaf game. Those beautiful pops of oranges, reds, and yellows never get old.

2. No mosquitos. I repeat, no mosquitos.

Any day I don’t walk around smelling like bug spray is a good day in my book.

3. Daytime Campfires!

No need to stay up late stoking that fire. Extra bonus is being able to see while cooking over the campfire.

4. It’s the BEST weather for hiking and other outdoor activities.

Autumn’s mild weather is perfect for some physical activity in the great outdoors without breaking too much of a sweat.

5. Happy Halloween!

Many campgrounds celebrate the holiday for the entire month of October with various activities and events.

6. Fewer crowds.

With kids in school, fall activities beginning, and summer vacations over, less people will be out and about in the campgrounds.

7. Excellent wildlife viewing.

Fewer crowds means better chances of seeing wildlife!

8. Sweater weather.

That extra layer of warmth does wonders for the soul.

9. Comfort food & warming drinks.

Speaking of good for the soul, a hot cup of coffee tastes best in cooler weather. I promise.

10. It’s the perfect weather for your furry friends.

With cooler temperatures comes less risk for our beloved pets. It’s the ideal time to put their natural coats to use.
