I enjoy camping no matter what the season. The big disappointment with fall camping for me is that some of the campgrounds I'd visit here in Minnesota close down Labor Day weekend or soon after. I am going out this weekend (dry) and one weekend in October (electric). We were out last year mid October with the popup and temperatures were down in the 20's.

I am looking forward to fall camping now that I have a furnace. I look forward to the big roaring fire that people don't back away from!

I am still trying to talk the wife into Thanksgiving camping if the weather allows.

From reading these posts, it's so obvious we live in such different environments. It's just now about to get comfortable camping weather down here in the deep where you can have a campfire (but we are under a burn ban right now) and the mosquitos quit bullying you so much.

We are still in the mid 90's at day and 70's at night here.

I've just ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.... I will keep you posted.

X eleventy WMTire.

I was thinking as I read the OP that if he wants to *really* fell muggy, try Louisiana in August!

I met and married DH while living in Tampa Bay for 5 years. The humidity wasn't near as bad as it is here. (sometimes I think I was nutz to move back here)

Those 2 O'clock rain showers in FL were like Old Faithful though...set your clock by 'em, ya could. But 90 degrees there didn't feel as 90 degrees here.

We're planning an October trip up to Hot Springs...if we get the jack issue resolved.

And sheesh, I didn't think about our burn ban applying to camp sites...glad you mentioned that! We may hit Caney Lake next weekend after this one. Kinda jonesin', yanno?

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

Looking forward to some comfy camping too I saw on my weather app that its in the 70s / 50s in Phila and Hendersonville, NC where our families are from, that sounds as close to perfect as it can get to me

It's been a weird summer here ~ plenty hot of course but the last few days feel drier ~ thankfully ~ I feel the illusion of fall Oh, and no hurricanes or even good tropical storms this year. DD says it's because of the El Nino winter.

Anyways, I do enjoy hearing others experiences and hope to have some good ones coming up myself.

Planning our first Halloween outing to a local CG this year up here, then time to winterize.
By the way, as of 4:44 pm EDT (2044zulu for you aviation types) Autumn began here in the northern hemisphere (spring for the Aussies and Argentina) so Walmart should have their Christmas decorations out in the next week or so.
Happy Equinox!
