What makes autumn camping so great? Read on to find out!
Reasons To Go Camping This Fall
There are plenty of reasons to go camping this time of year, and here’s why.
More Hustle, Less Bustle
First of all, it’s not nearly as busy at campgrounds this time of year, which can be a blessing if you’re looking to relax. You won’t be fighting for prime spots as much and you’ll have better, less unobstructed views.
It also means shorter lines and smaller crowds at any destinations and roadside attractions. Just make sure that the places you want to go are still open because some seasonal attractions close for the fall and winter.
The days may be getting shorter, but the temperature is starting to go down, which means less sweltering days. Instead, it’s a much cozier atmosphere which makes activities more refreshing and less sweaty and nights more restful than in the heat of summer.
Pack comfy sweaters and fluffy blankets to make the most of your autumn camping trip.
There’s nothing like feeling the crunch of leaves under your boots and watching them fall. The colours of autumn are coming out as the days go by, which makes now a great time to camp. If you wait much longer, all the leaves will be long-gone off the trees.
If there’s one thing synonymous with camping, it’s a campfire. In the fall, campfires actually serve its purpose of keeping you warm
You’re also actually allowed to have a campfire, because fire bans are usually lifted in the autumn, which means more s’mores for everyone!
