Be aware if you go to the New England area two things can occur.

1. Everybody and his brother goes there in the fall so campground space is at a premium...booked way in advance.

2. They start shutting down campgrounds in the fall so you need to check ahead and see when the places are closing for the winter.

You didn't mention how far you wanted to travel...Colorado and Utah have some really nice fall colors too.

The fall colors come in at various times in various places so calling ahead to some of the campgrounds will give you firsthand information of each location.

I live in Wisconsin ... I have been to upstate New York during fall colors.

The colors are good in both states ... but there is a difference due to the change in elevation. There is about 600 feet in change in elevation in Wisconsin ... and several 1000 change in New York.

In New York, there will be large "clumps' of similar trees ... maples, aspens, spruces ... which means there will be large displays of reds, yellow, and green.

In Wisconsin the trees are intermingled ... so the reds, yellows, and greens are intermingled.

Wisconsin has lots of leaf peepers, too. It is generally easy to find a spot to park your RV

The November Motorhome magazine has two great articles on Fall foliage: Central Oregon , New Hampshire's White Mountains. The articles shows routes and RV parks
