Top 10 Fall Camping Destinations

Want to make a camping trip this fall but not sure where to go? We’ve got you covered—we have the top 10 fall camping destinations for you!

White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire

There’s no denying that the fall foliage in New Hampshire is absolutely stunning. That alone makes it one of the perfect fall camping destinations—but the longevity of their decent weather during fall makes it that much sweeter.

Grant Tetons National Park, Wyoming

Wyoming offers a plethora of untamed beauty, and it is on full display during fall. The Teton Mountains are stunning, and perfectly picturesque for your next fall camping trip. 

Canyonlands National Park, Utah

Utah is known for its intricate, orange rock formations, and the Canyonlands National Park is one of the top spots to take their natural beauty in.

Gunnison National Forest, Colorado

The gorgeous yellows that pop alongside the dark green pines in the Gunnison National Forest make it a frontrunner in our list. With jaw-dropping views and the color palette to match, Gunnison is picture-perfect for fall.

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Crater Lake is one of the United States’ deepest lakes, and the most beautiful. It offers a unique and eye-catching backdrop to accompany your lakeside activities.

Northeast: Acadia National Park, Maine

Maine is a quintessential example of the wonder that is fall in the United States. With splashes of orange, red, and yellow surrounding calming blue waters, we know that Acadia will be a crowd-pleaser this fall.

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Tennessee

If you’re looking for a southern showstopper, look no further. Fall Creek is so perfect for fall that it even has it in the name—twice. It doesn’t get much better than that! The falls are incredible any time of year, but they’re especially gorgeous in their namesake season.

Big Bend National Park, Texas

If you’ve been wanting to visit Texas but the promise of extreme heat during the summer scares you off, then visiting during fall is the perfect solution. The weather cools down, but is still nice and warm, with the added bonus of colorful foliage.

Isle Royale National Park, Michigan

If you’re looking for rugged, away-from-the-city adventure then Isle Royale should be at the top of your list. This Michigan national park offers that and more, which makes it perfect for a disconnected fall experience.

The Catskills, New York

Last, but certainly not least, is The Catskills in New York. New York might be known for its magical winter time, but its fall season should not be ignored. The drive alone is gorgeous and full of warm colors, and the stay is just as special.
