School has started up, the weather is cooling down, and summer has come winding slowly toward a picturesque end. However, there is still outdoor fun to be had before winter brings freezing temperatures, snowfall, and the always-too-long wait for spring.

A camping trip could be one of the best ways to take advantage of these final weeks of warmth and mild weather. Whether it be with family, friends, or your significant other, camping is a great way to relax, have fun, and connect with mother nature.

If you are looking for a fun way to spend a few free days, camping is one of the cheapest and most entertaining ways to spend your free time. Here are a few of the most important reasons to work one last camping trip into your fall schedule.

1. Get Active.

Camping — and other activities associated with it, such as kayaking and hiking, are great ways to work in a bit more physical activity before winter comes. Staying active will help you feel better, stay fitter, and keep off weight during the cozy indoor months of fall and winter.

2. Less Crowds.

Why camp during the middle of the summer, at the height of the crowds and traffic, when you can enjoy a more peaceful and solitary camping experience in September or early October? At this special time of year, camping can be more about immersing yourself in the environment, and less about dealing with other campers. Forget about messes, litter, and loud campground neighbors. This fall, have the campgrounds to yourself!

3. Reward Yourself.

You have made it through the first few busy months of school or work — you know that you deserve a little time to relax!

4. Memories.

Fall camping is a great opportunity to create new memories. This is partly because of its novelty in comparison to the common practice of summer camping, and partly because of the natural beauty of fall time. Which brings us to our next point…

5. Fall Foliage.

Fall is, for many people, the most beautiful time of the year. Hiking and exploring under leaves of every color can be breathtaking and enchanting. While summer camping can be exciting, it will never compare with fall in terms of aesthetics. And where better to enjoy the fall than Saco River Camping Area in Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire, a place known for its picturesque autumn!


Saco River Camping Area is open until October 11th! Do not miss your chance to experience some fall camping fun before it gets too cold. The Saco River grounds, located in the beautiful state of New Hampshire, are the best place to take a little time for yourself and your family, and get immersed in nature.
