We RV all year long. The summers are hot here (3 digits) so we usually head to Colorado and other "cooler" states. But our favorite for Texas RVing is Fall thru Spring because it's COOLER, kids are in school, fewer campers and camp fires feel great with cooler evenings.

We camp year around, and as crazy as it seems we head up into the mountains for spring and fall. I like the snow and cold, but only for short periods, so we get it out of our systems. Like everyone else stated, there are several things that make fall camping great, it just up to you to ensure you are prepared for the temperature changes. Smores are best in fall (IMHO) Enjoy it.

As screwed up as California is, a redeeming factor is that we camp year round. Just like some of you escaping the cold during the winter, we escape the heat during the summer. Fall and spring are great for pleasant weather and beautiful settings.

The problem is that there are more old people camping year round and the campgrounds are often hard to get into. WAIT.....old people......that's us.....darn!

I'm not sure what part of the country you're from... but if you're in the midwest.. there's no better place than Wisconsin.. If you choose the western part of the state... you could camp near/around Prairie du Chien, WI (Welcome to the Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce | Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin)... there is a state park called Wyalusing SP and it is a wonderful place to watch all the birds as the head south and the changing colors along the banks of the Mississippi River...

Or... another option is Door County, WI (http://www.doorcounty.com/).. Door County is commonly knows as the "Cape Cod" of the Midwest... Another opportunity to see some great fall colors.. we particularly love going to Peninsula SP

Fall camping is our favorite time of the year... nothing like being able to use the fire for warmth..

Love fall camping!!

Found a great trip I did 2 years ago and getting ready to do again this year. Up thru Vermont and then cross over and come back down thru New Hampshire. There is a wine/cheese/chocolate trail thru NH that was great. That's where I stock up on my maple syrup at a sugar house for the year and have the best wine cheese and apples. Still waiting to see the moose though. Then back down thru Mass. to New Jersey(home).

Almost any state park in the Midwest is going to have showy leaves in the fall. Same for the mid-south (KY, TN, VA.) I've camped in state parks all over both areas in the fall and every state has spectacular views in the fall. I particularly love Cumberland Lake State Park in KY. I love spring cammping in East Texas because of the profusion of dogwood and redbud trees. But really, pick a state park in either area and you likely will not be disappointed.

We will be in Door County in two weeks for a week. We go almost every year and love it. Now instead of going on Columbus Day weekend we are going the week prior due to the large crowds on that holiday. My cousin and his Wife are going to journey up from St. Louis and join us.

The advantage is it is mostly folks our age and none of the drunken revelry. Oh wait, maybe we will do a bit of that.

We have camped every month of the year since Jan 2014. We are not full timers (though we have taken one 3+ month trip in 2014 and planning for almost 4 months this winter). We do try to camp where it isn't freezing, so have not had to worry too much about that. We did get caught out in one 19 degree day in last year's Polar Vortex. but it was an overnight stop and we just used the furnace (which heats the tanks) and did not hook up a water hose. Long term freezing weather camping is just not something we are interested in doing! True fall weather usually doesn't present that sort of temperature for us here in the NW and we head south when winter approaches.
