Fall is a magical time of year where campgrounds and RV parks are blanketed with carpets of multi-colored leaves, where nights are cool, and a campfire is as much for warmth as it is for s’mores! But where to go? If you’re looking for some epic Fall camping destinations, we’ve got some recommendations . . .
1) Jasper National Park, Alberta
With more than 1200 kms of hiking trails, the Jasper National Park doesn’t just connect you with nature, it throws you into the very thick of it. Populated with mountains, forests, and wild rivers, there’s lots of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors! Jasper is also home to the world’s largest Dark Sky Preserve, an area free of artificial light pollution, making it easy to spot countless stars and constellations with the naked eye.
2) Okanagan Falls Provincial Park, British Columbia
Right here in our very own backyard in the south Okanagan is the town of Okanagan Falls. A picturesque community with arguably the best Ice Cream shop (Tickleberrys) in the Okanagan Valley, Okanagan Falls is a glorious hidden gem. Grab some fresh fruit, pack some wine, and head out on a hike along one of the Okanagan’s lakes.
3) Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario
For the truly adventurous road tripper, why not head out to Ontario where you can hike under a canopy of gorgeous maple trees, aspens, and oak trees as they change color throughout September and October. Bugs are scarce in the Fall thanks to low temperatures but the wildlife is plentiful. You can even howl with the wolves during the full moon!
4) Mount Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia
The second oldest provincial park in British Columbia, Mount Robson is also the highest peak of the Canadian Rockies. There’s lots of opportunity for canoeing, hiking, and fishing and there are two campgrounds that stay open all year long. Enjoy the stunning views and breathe in that fresh mountain air.
5) Prince Edward Island National Park, Prince Edward Island
Stunning views are abound in the Prince Edward Island National Park. Situated on the coastline, this park is known for its sandy beaches and red cliffs. There are over 50 kms of trails to explore along with two different campgrounds for your RV. There’s also a historic lighthouse at Covehead Harbour, perfect for bird watching and Fall picnics while listening to the crashing waves.
6) St. Martins, New Brunswick
While not a provincial park, this seaside town is as easy going as it is picturesque. There are three different campgrounds for your RV, each unique on their own way. A major ‘to-do’ in St. Martins is to explore the sandstone caves during low tide. Maybe you’ll discover buried treasure?
