Get Cozy: 5 Reasons You Should Camp This Fall at a Jellystone Park

While Summer may be the most popular time to rent a cabin or hitch up your RV, there is something charming about the season that follows. Falling leaves, chilly temperatures, and seasonal activities make fall a uniquely fun time to plan a camping trip. Not convinced? The following are just some of the reasons why fall is a great time to book your next camping trip.

  • The foliage is beautiful. There is no doubt that Autumn is a gorgeous time of year. The trees explode into a canvas of red, yellow, and green. This gives you a simply stunning view while you lounge the day away on your campsite.
  • The campfire is extra cozy. Huddling around the fire is quite special when the air has an extra bit of chill. Grab some blankets and hot cocoa. And of course, this time of year is perfect for spooky stories.
  • You won’t have to deal with bugs. While Summer camping is a blast, at times, swatting at mosquitoes can certainly get old. During the Fall, you don’t have to worry about any pests flying around your face. You can enjoy the outdoors without the buggy and muggy air.
  • Cabins are extra romantic. When you rent a cabin in the Fall, it feels like you are in a movie. It’s like a rustic escape tucked within nature. Whether you are taking a couple’s trip or booking a vacation for the whole family, staying in a cabin will offer that extra dreamy feel.

Looking to get explore the area for more activities? You can try out fall activities like apple picking, hay rides, corn mazes, and seasonal festivals. Once you book your site, check out the park’s calendar and ask the campground about other activities that are going on in the area.

As an outdoor lover, you know that camping during every season is a wonderful occasion. A recent survey found that 47% of adult campers cited the joy of camping as the single biggest motivator for their trips. By camping in the fall, you can extend your camping season as long as possible. Plus, these memories of fall treats and stories around the fire will make some great memories!
