Consider Camping this Fall.

Last updated: 11 May 2023

The sun is setting much earlier, the air is crisp, and the leaves are falling. Summer is at an end, and autumn is upon us.

While most people think camping is a summer activity, there’s no reason why you can’t pack up the RV and hit the road in the Fall as well. If you have doubts, here are a few reasons why.

Scenery: Who can doubt the beauty of the changing foliage that comes with the season? Even if you don’t consider yourself a ‘leaf peeper,’ you can’t deny that autumn is a gorgeous time to be outdoors. There are also fewer people – and bugs – around this time of year, so you get the scenery all to yourself. Who wouldn’t love that?

What to do: While it’s getting a little too chilly to lay on the beach and go swimming, there’s still plenty to do outdoors in the Fall. Now is the ideal time to go hiking since cooler temperatures mean you won’t get utterly dehydrated after an hour. Trail or mountain biking is always a treat this time of year. The routes are less busy, the scenery is stunning, and the brisk air provides you that extra energy you need to push to the top. If it rains, no worries, listening to the pitter-patter of the rainfall as you finish that book you have been putting off all summer is the perfect relaxing activity. 

Keeping it cool: The days are getting shorter, which means the temperature is getting cooler, and quite frankly, that’s not a terrible thing. Rather than suffering through the blazing heat of the day and slightly less heat of the night, you’re able to layer yourself up and adjust accordingly this time of year. Cooler nights often mean better sleep, so you’ll have more energy to get out for hikes, fishing, biking, and other fall activities.

Campfire cozy: Sitting in front of a nice roaring campfire is so much enjoyable in the Fall since you’ll appreciate the warmth it provides. Sipping on a warm drink, wrapped in a blanket on a comfy chair, roasting a few marshmallows – this is the perfect season to get cozy around the campfire. Plus, since the weather’s finally cooled down, you’re allowed to have one since restrictions are lifted this time of year.

So now you’re looking forward to camping this Fall. Excellent! Here are some things you ought to do with the RV before you hit the road.

Maintenance: Before you get started, make sure your RV has had an oil change, check the battery, and do any routine repairs you’re able to do on your own. And the most important? Make sure your heater is running correctly. You won’t be happy if you get chilly in the middle of the night.

Make room: Take out the summer stuff; you likely won’t need it this time of year. Instead, bring plenty of blankets for when the temperature drops, and pack waterproof jackets and footwear. No one likes cold/wet feet, so don’t skimp on the socks. Also, be prepared if the weather turns ugly; have some indoor activities, like playing cards and board games, to keep occupied.

This time of year, it is worth taking your adventure to the open road and explore a new place while enjoying the great outdoors in a different atmosphere. Using the mentioned tips will provide you a trip with ease. There is something special about this time of year, and it is worth getting out of your comfort zone and trying it out.
