Same here - we usually camp after Labor Day through Thanksgiving.

Not quite over here yet

We have 2 more trips this month to add 5 more camping nights. October is awesome in Southern Indiana for camping.

I have two more trips planned. One at the end of the month and then I will winterize it. I have a week planned for Florida during the week of New Years. I will de-winterize it, use it and then re-winterize it before bringing it back for the winter. This will make about 48 nights this year, the most in 4 seasons of RV'ing.

Our season ended the weekend after Labor Day. I wish we could have enjoyed some fall camping but I had to have back surgery the week after that last trip. The weight and movement restrictions put the end to that dream for this season. I can't wait for my DW to retire so that we can make a trip south to get away from the frigid weather for a while!

We joke around, that Camping season ends around first week in June, and begins right after Labor day.

Even here in OH I camp through most of Nov. Most campgrounds are closed, but we have private land and do still travel some. As long as the weather holds out, we camp! I don't winterize until the temps drop into the 20's.
