Well ,again this year we are ending our camping season on labor day weekend The forcast for the day was windy and rainy so we packed up and headed home While we tore down we also blew lines ,drained hatwater heater and added anti freeze .When we got home we put it right into its storage building so now all I need to do is pull the battery and disconnect the gas and we're good to go for the LLLLOOOONNNNGGGGcold winter. We are looking to sell our TrailManonr and buy a travle trailer that we will put at a seasonal spot near to home so goodluck to those who are still camping and have fun

Yeah, when I lived in Northern Virgnia it was Labor Day that pretty much signaled the end of the season.
Now living out West I camp up until Thanksgiving.

Well, JJ,

I guess you must have your reasons (Gas prices part of it?), and I hope you thoroughly enjoy seasonal camping. We usually camp until at least Columbus Day. To help with the fuel situation we have camped less this year, and are tending to stay a little closer to home. You're gonna hafta pry the steering wheel out of my cold, dead hands to make me stop, though.

L8r,
Steve

We go up to Columbus Day weekend (when we'll have our Nor Easter rally). We even made it to election day one year.

First weekend of October is the "World's Largest Garage Sale" in Warrensburg, Upstate NY, a fun weekend we never miss, although sometimes it's pretty cold there.

Or you could be Living/Full timing in Florida and camp 24/7/365. Course you have to tie your rigs to the trees during the hurricane season.

You're right Dave, I'll be down there Jan, Feb and March, and I carry an anchor to weather the storms...

Well ya ll do it wrong. If you would move west, you winter in AZ and go north to WO or west to southern CA ( San Diego you have it made . No hurricanes and just little tremors in CA. Or be like us and stay here in the 100s all the time . I went up north today and it was great , mid 70s but had to come home to 102 @5:30 PM . Beside that, we don't have to winterize. I think I will take the heat over the ice and snow anytime. After a few weeks in the heat I don't think Driver would agree

Well, some of the best camping we do is in the fall. We camp on into November. Nobody in the parks but a few die hards and everyone is friendly. To put the camper away on labor day is to loose at least 2 good months of camping in Michigan.

Camping season is just about ready to start down here. I'm at 4600 feet in southern AZ today and it's 90 today and low 70's at night.

We'll keep going at least through Columbo day. maybe longer depending on the weather. The boat will get hauled end of Oct. But we can still dry camp at the marina all year if we want to. We will get one trip to Bar harbor in early Oct. Then it's time to winterise. Scotty

Dontcha just hate the end of the season?
We try to camp right thru mid November (hunting season). We'll se how it goes this year w/the new unit. Will probably already have winterized by then, too.

We tend to camp year round (in a pop-up no less). Since we live near the NC/TN/GA state lines, our real "winter" really doesn't start until Jan and then lasts until Feb. A few hours south into GA and the campgrounds still have water. I leave my pop-up open year round so that we can stock and roll in a few hours. I love camping in the "off-season".

Here in central PA my camping season goes year round. I have done some of my best camping in the dead of winter when the parks are completely empty except for me. Nothing like a hot cup of coffee in the morning and the only sound you hear is a light snow fall followed by a mid afternoon hike in the snow. Gotta love it , or not To each their own.
