1. Pack Layers
The best thing you can do to prepare for the fluctuating temperatures during the fall is to pack layers. Start with leggings and a light undershirt, add a t-shirt and jeans, and finish with a sweatshirt or jacket. This layering allows you to be warm in the mornings and adjust your comfort level while the temperatures rise throughout the day.
2. Watch the Weather
It’s a good idea to check the weather before heading out to the campground so that you can be prepared. If the forecast predicts rain or some particularly chilly nights, you’ll have time to plan accordingly. The weather app on your smartphone is an excellent resource to use for this tip.
3. Avoid Fall Break
Many campgrounds will expect larger crowds during the week of fall break, so try to plan your camping trip around that to avoid overpaying for a campsite. Most campgrounds are open about their high-traffic weeks and will tell you what weekends or weekdays are best for avoiding the crowds.
4. Plan for Rain
Even if the forecast doesn’t predict rain for your trip, plan for rain. You’ll want to bring towels for the floor of the RV, tarps to cover your outdoor equipment, and raincoats. It’s also a good idea to pack a few board games so that your time indoors waiting out the rain is enjoyable for everyone.
5. Enjoy Fewer Crowds
Because children are back in school and many families choose not to travel in the fall, you will be able to enjoy fewer crowds around the campground and any parks that you plan to visit. The lack of crowds will often increase your chances of spotting wildlife at the National Parks or State Parks, so the fall is an excellent time to travel.
