The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) reports that with Labor Day behind us, privately owned parks across the nation are gearing up for fall activities. Campground events on the agenda for the coming season include Oktoberfest and Halloween celebrations, along with apple and cranberry themed weekends.

Autumn used to be a quiet, slow period in the country’s parks, but things have changed, notes Paul Bambei, president and CEO of ARVC. He says that although fewer campers are traveling, park operators have discovered they can sometimes fill their campsites and cabins to capacity if they provide enough activities.

Another attraction for campers during the coming weeks is the fall foliage, which can be seen in late September and early October in northern states. In some of these areas, the colors can be quite vivid, so it is well worth a trip to these areas to see nature’s annual glorious show of a blaze of scarlet, gold and orange leaves.
