Fall is here and that means it’s time to start gearing up for fall camping. Camping during the cooler weather is exciting because it creates an entirely different experience. It’s the perfect time to try heartier recipes, cozy up by the campfire, and enjoy a movie inside on rainy days. However you like to have fun, these fall rv camping tips will make your experience on the road more enjoyable than ever.
Plan for Cooking
Cooking in cooler weather takes longer, so be sure to prepare for longer cook times. This is the season when you can start to try heartier stews and other recipes. Try to plan your recipes based on what’s in season at local farmers markets so you can enjoy local cuisine and try something new.
It’s also a great time of year to get yourself an insulated mug so that your warm beverages stay warm when you’re out and about. Whether you’re sipping hot chocolate or coffee, the cooler weather in the morning will cool your warm drinks faster.
Dress In Layers
Fall is the time of year when the weather starts out cool, but tends to warm up in the middle of the day. This is particularly true earlier in the season. Pack enough clothing to dress in layers so that as the day moves on you can shed layers and won’t overheat. Similarly, as the weather cools in the evening you can always warm up by adding layers.
We also recommend you bring along a raincoat for rainy hikes and an extra jacket for when the weather gets cooler.
Bring Extra Lighting
The sun sets earlier in the fall, so bringing along extra flashlights and lighting can help to make your trip a little more enjoyable. If you ever get caught in the woods after sunset, you’ll have a way to find your path and if you are simply walking around the campground you will also have what you need to navigate in the dark.
