Reasons You Should Go Camping in the Fall
While summer is the peak season for most campers and RVers, fall might be a better time to hit the road. From mid-September through early November, temperatures are milder, humidity is drying, campgrounds and parks are usually less crowded, fall foliage is ablaze, and pesky bugs like mosquitos and black flies are not as prevalent. Additionally, water temperatures are still warm and fishing conditions improve. So, if you missed out on a summer camping trip this year, no worries. The weeks after Labor Day (the unofficial end of summer) are an excellent time to pitch a tent and park your RV.
