Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that you can’t go camping and spend time outdoors. In fact, there are a bunch of reasons why Fall is a great time to go camping and we will talk about them one by one.
1. Campsites are less crowded and you have a lot to choose from.
Since campsites are more in demand during the summer time, expect that campgrounds will be less crowded during the autumn season. You’ll have a lot of room to do different activities instead of feeling like you are just in the city, with all the busy trails and gazillions of campers around you. Booking your reservations is easier and faster too since there’s not much people wanting to go camping during this time. And of course, prices are cheaper too.
2. You’ll have a beautiful backdrop thanks to the Fall Foliage.
Fall is hands down, the most beautiful time of the year. Camping during this time gives you the best view of how colors change from sunrise to sunset and the leaves in shades of red, orange and gold. Hiking while leaves flutter down off trees and stepping on a bunch of crunchy leaves sound very exciting too!
3. The weather is a lot cooler.
Finally, you don’t have to wake up in a pool of sweat. Since the temperature won’t be soaring anymore, you get to enjoy the perfect weather – breezy morning air and cooler evenings for a camp fire.
4. No more (or maybe less) bugs, mosquitoes and creepy insects.
Ah, those annoying bees, mosquitoes and flies. No more ants and creepy bugs crawling up your legs or your food. Once the temperatures drop, they lay eggs and hibernate until spring.
5. You can actually get cozy.
Since it’s a lot cooler, you can actually build a massive bonfire and get cozy while you wrap yourself in warm flannels and cuddle in a big pile of sleeping bags and blankets
