Knocking on November’s Door

Knocking on November’s Door

Autumn leaves crunching under your feet … a fragrant mug of cider or cocoa warming your hands … the family clustered around the cozy light of a roaring campfire. There’s something about camping in the fall that makes it just a little different from the rest of the year, and November can be a great time to enjoy the cool air and the gorgeous colors of the season. While some of our Camp-Resorts have closed for the season, many are still open and there’s still fun to be had. Just take a look.
