When most people think of camping, they generally think of going during that narrow window between late spring and early fall. We don’t know about you but having to put our camping adventures on hold from October through April sounds like a recipe for a long, boring winter! With an RV rental, you can extend your camping adventures into the offseason, which comes with some pretty unique benefits.
When you camp in the cooler months, you’ll discover a quieter RV camping experience. Gone are the overcrowded national parks and congested campsites of the busy months. In the still of the fall and winter months, you’ll get more of the sense of having the trails to yourself. You may even get a chance to spot more wildlife, which tend to hide during the busier months.

There’s nothing quite like experiencing an old favorite in a whole new way. Spring and summer bring blooming flowers and picture-perfect greenery; but changing leaves and barren landscapes can be just as beautiful. Whether you decide to visit someplace new or one of your favorite destinations, witnessing the changing seasons is something you won’t forget. Here are a few of our favorite Fall RV road trip destinations to experience in the offseason.

Most campgrounds drop their rates after the big, Labor Day weekend and some will even stop taking reservations. The smaller crowds allow you to visit many sites on a first-come, first-served basis, as spots are unlikely to run out. The laid-back atmosphere also means you don’t have to stick to a strict schedule and can stay a few extra nights if you’d like. Plus, you can often visit popular destinations at a fraction of the cost.
RV camping in cold weather brings fewer bugs as they’ve migrated to warmer weather for the season.

Explore New Locations
RV camping in cooler weather has its advantages. Now, we aren’t talking about camping in extreme conditions, like snow and ice – although you can choose those locations, if you want to. Rather, this time of year presents the opportunity to explore some of the southern states of the U.S. that foster beautiful weather in the winter months. Think of places like Florida, Arizona and New Mexico. Heaters on the RV are available to warm up those chilly nights. And once daylight breaks, sunny skies make way for a perfect day of outdoor adventure.
If you give it a try, you might find the offseason is your new, favorite time for RV camping. Whether you choose to experience old favorites or tackle a new adventure, we hope you’ll take Cruise America along for the ride.
