With summer coming to an end, the perks of fall are becoming more and more clear – like sweater weather, enjoying donuts and cider, and Halloween festivities! In addition to these perks, there’s also many reasons why fall camping is a must for you and your family. Keep reading to find out the 5 reasons why we love fall camping so much!

Peace & Quiet

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head to Jellystone Park™! During your stay, you’ll be able to breathe in the cool fall air in the comfort of your own cabin or campsite. Many families plan their vacation for summertime, so you can expect less people and more time making family memories around the campfire.

Lower Rates

When you book anytime during non-peak season (August 22 – November 28)), you can expect lower rates! By staying in the fall, you can spend time with family and friends without breaking the bank. Plus, we have a variety of non-peak deals that can be added on top of our lower rates! From free nights, to 25% off, it’s easy to save on your Jellystone Park™ getaway! You can view all of our deals here.

Fall Foliage

Vibrant yellows, deep reds, and bright orange colors await you when you stay at Jellystone Park™ Luray! By mid September, you should expect to see the leaves starting to change, with full peak colors happening in October! Wondering when you should plan your stay in order to experience the most of the fall colors? Check out this fall foliage map here.

Cooler Weather

Pack those cozy sweaters, fluffy socks, and your favorite pair of boots – fall will be here before you know it and the temperatures will begin to drop. Plus, there’s nothing better than cozying up around the campfire with family and friends! Just don’t forget to pack s’more ingredients!
