Heading out on a fall camping trip in your new or used RV? We can’t wait – yep, we’re excited for you! Fall is the best time of year to enjoy a gorgeous camping trip. Take a look at some RV tips to keep in mind for fall camping below!
Try a National Park
If you’re not sure where to go, now’s the time to pick a National Park near you! (Or even a National Park that’s not near you.) National Parks are utterly gorgeous year round, but once kids are back in school, crowds diminish significantly. And nothing against schoolkids – it’s just the facts. If you’ve always wanted to go somewhere iconic and want the feeling of having it all to yourself, there’s no better time to visit a National Park than in the fall.
Outdoor Cooking is So In
Yeah, summertime makes us all think of pulling out the grill on an almost nightly basis, but fall is absolutely the perfect time to utilize the outdoor kitchen on your RV. Use the cooktop to keep a kettle of chili warm, or spicy mulled cider ready to dish up around the campfire.
Where to See the Foliage
Even if you don’t head to a National Park, there are plenty of amazing places to visit if you’re wanting to do some leaf peeping. Check out this interactive leaf tracker here, and consider putting one of these Midwest stops on your list:
- Lilydale Regional Park in Minnesota
- Porcupine Mountains in Michigan
- Peninsula State Park in Wisconsin
Enjoy Local Offerings
From pumpkin patches to vineyards to orchards, you’ll find loads of autumn-oriented experiences to enjoy. Just keep your eyes open for them! Independently or family owned and operated small businesses thrive on tourist commerce, so support the patches and groves you see and enjoy the flavors and experiences of the season.
