Labor Day has come and gone and for many of us RVers it signals the end of the Summer camping season. This can be a very sad time for many RVers. The reality that another camping season is over can be a depressing thought. 
Time to put away the RV… Or is it? 
For us, we are blessed to have our season not end, but switch gears. We will be transitioning from summer camping to Fall camping. I’ve already been planning the Fall getaways and making reservations.  
Here are our five favorite things about Fall camping:

Less crowded campgrounds
– Easier time getting reservations. We are a family that camps, so we love having other families with kids at campgrounds. But now that kids are back in school, most campgrounds are scarcely populated especially during the week. We think that this is the perfect time to plan our excursions and enhance our homeschool studies.

Less bugs –  This might be my wife Tia’s favorite part since she is an avid bug hater. This time of year she actually enjoys sitting outside and enjoying the natural beauty of the campground and areas we explore. 

It’s football season! – Having a RV is the perfect way to tailgate at your favorite football game. Or any fall sport for that matter. Spending a weekend at a lacrosse tournament? Bring the RV and enjoy the down time while keeping a keen eye on all the football action of the weekend.

Incredible Fall colors – Having grown up in the Northeast, go NJ!, we remember the beauty and fun of the leaves changing. Our kids lived in South Florida the bulk of their lives, So traveling and seeing the wonderful fall tapestry of colors has been an incredible learning experience for them. 

Cooler temps – This is definitely one of my favorite parts about camping this time of year. To me Fall has the perfect temps, not too cold but certainly not hot. Sweat pants weather. Football weather! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist that reference.) We all seem to last longer whether, hiking, biking or just enjoying the great outdoors. Unless we are in Florida, most pools are closed or not heated which basically eliminates that activity.

So if you haven’t tried Fall camping, we hope these 5 reasons will give you great incentives to try it out soon. 
See you at a campground soon!
