    brings sweaters, changing leaves and everyone’s favorite spice (pumpkin). It
    also brings great camping weather. Before you hit the road for your fall
    weekend camping getaway, there are few tips and tricks to keep in mind as the
    cooler days of fall roll


    • Consider
      a cabin or park model:

      Whether you’re a beginner camper
      without all the gear or just looking for a little more warmth at night, these
      are great options and can offer amenities such as indoor plumbing, heating,
      fire places, beds and more.
    • Dress

      With warmer temperatures during the day and
      cooler temps at night, packing layers is the best way to prepare for
      fluctuating temperatures. Avoid cotton as well, it absorbs moisture and
      doesn’t dry as easily, preventing you from staying
    • Prepare your tent

      If you’re camping in a tent, wrap a second tarp
      around the tent to keep it insulated as you sleep.
    • Sleep

      Sleeping on a cot or air mattress may seem
      appealing but can actually make you colder as you catch some zees. Sleeping
      on the ground on a mattress (not air filled) will keep you warmer as the air
      around you won’t cool you down. If you can, invest in a heavy-duty sleeping
      bag to help brave the chilly nights.
    • Stay

      You’re not going to be sweating as much to tip
      you off that you’re getting dehydrated. So drink up during all your camping
    • Get

      Campgrounds offer a number of terrific fall
      activities from corn mazes and hay rides to Halloween bashes and haunted
      houses. Be sure not to miss out on all the opportunities at your campsite
      during your vacation.
